Cafe Zoe

Rest : Cafe Zoe 
Meal : Dinner 
Loc : Todi Mills Compound 

Todi Mills is fast becoming the dining and drinking hotspot with some pretty awesome old and new places in the compound. If you ignore the industrial meat packing district like buildings and the ridiculous entry and exit conditions its not too bad. 

Cafe Zoe is perhaps the most interesting of them all from a dining standpoint. I have been there a few times now but this is the firs official review. The place is fairly well laid out, spacious and modern in design with split level seating. Massive windows mean this is a pretty nice place to be on Sunday morning.

Started with some fries to munch on while we waited for the party to assemble... no complaints as far as fries go.

The cherry tomato & goat cheese crostini was a little tangy but mostly allright. not my first choice though.

while we waited for the main coures to arrive we got some snacks to munch on, olives, pickles and feta with some crostini. delicious way to spend a wait. 

The home made parpadelle was just insanely good, regret not havnig ordered it on my own and had no shame in stealing, just brilliant and a must have. 

the mushroom risotto was pretty good, a tad on the lighter side, taste wise, perhaps a dash of truffle oil might have added a kick. 

mrs J is fast becoming predictable with her food, aglio olio again, not too bad but apparently not as good as the one they had at Smoke House Deli.

Overall, i like the place, the ambiance is nice and casual and the seating is spaced out enough to have your privacy. A separate bar area is always a bonus. Service is mostly quick and friendly.

Food : 8/10
Service : 8/10
Damage : 4000 for 4.
