Meal : Late Lunch
Cafe Basilico is an old fav though we dont get out there as often as we would like. They have two branches one in Colaba and one in Bandra. There is not much to choose from between the two, however the ambiance is different in both places.
You can feel the south bombay and bandra vibes in both places respectively. The menu has been revamped recenlty which is good. i do think the service in Bandra is a notch above the service in Coalaba.
We started off with a Diet Coke & Ice Tea. The tea was pretty good.
The Balinese curry is a menu staple and a complete must have. You can switch the rice with couscous, though either way its a splendid must have dish a tasty, thick dish.
The Risotto, mushrooms with a tomato compote. This dish was quite spectacular, i reckon one of the best risottos , i have had anywhere. A dish i can remember just by thinking about it. Etched in the back of my brain. The tastes was amazing, the risotto itself was ok, however the compote mixed in with it was just wild.
Overall, you really cant go wrong with Cafe Basilico, the crowd in Bandra is on the younger side but otherwise, great food, good service, lovely afternoon out.
