Salsa Habanero

They are green too 🙂

A friend D had posted on FB about this amazing Mexican take away joint. She raved about the food and I decided to pay a visit. One fine evening when I decided to check it out, I called and got excellent directions from the gentleman who answered the phone. Reached this charming looking place where I was greeted graciously by the husband-wife duo. I ordered a Quesadilla (Flour tortilla grilled with cheese and Pica De Galo), Salsa and a bag of corn chips (My friend on FB had raved about it). I opened the packet in anticipation as soon as I hit home and was delighted….it was simply divine and tasted nothing like what is normally passed off as Mexican here. I have been to the place on several occasions later and was not dissapointed ever. Yeah the only dissapointing thing about this place is that it’s only open on weekends: Sat- Sun 6-10 pm. The owner (Mr. Prakash Patel) says cooking is his hobby and that’s why the weekender route. Hmm we foodies will want more. Till Mr. Patel also agrees, we will have to go with the flow. Besides Quesadillas and Corn chips, I’ve tried the Burrito and Enchalada. Both have been equally yum, fresh and wholesome. But for me, Quesadilla rules 🙂 (though I still do not know how to pronounce it right :P)

Bon Appetit 🙂

Kashi Art Cafe, Fort Kochi

Kashi Art Cafe, Fort Kochi

This was our first stop in our Kerala trip. NS, E and I had read so much about Kashi Art Cafe that we set out for lunch as soon as we set foot in the streets of Fort Kochi. We entered this cute little cafe perched in the charming streets and were struck by the beautiful paintings and sculptures. As one moves further, you enter the cafe area which is green and semi open. Between us, we ordered a Sandwich, Quiche and Pasta. I had ordered the Quiche but it dissapointed as there was too much of egg in it. Bullied NS and E into having it while I ordered a Sandwich and Coffee. This time thankully, both were good. NS and E ordered dessert and I wisely stayed away. The food is average but if you are in this mood for coffee and conversations in a serene and beautiful atmosphere, this is the place to be. If you are alone and have a book and coffee for company, even better!
