Fungi Town, Garlic Bread with Cheese, Lamb Tzatziki Burger


Maple Latte

Winning for

Pretty, laid-back cafe ambience, and fuss-free food.

What we ate

Offering starters, sandwiches, burgers, tacos and pastas on the menu, with a side of hookah {separate menu announces the many fruity flavours}, Blow’s cafe-style menu is all about short eats. Start off with the Fungi Town, mushroom, parmesan and cheddar, packed with pesto and then deep fried in a Panko crumb. Served with Harissa-flavoured mayo, the shroom starters won us over with its cheesiness.

While the flavours of pesto didn’t really pack in a punch {too much cream robbed the pesto of its basil flavour} in a penne chicken pasta, the Blow Room Sandwich with roasted chicken, spicy mayo, veggies, jalapeño and cheese didn’t quite cut it either. A slightly restrained hand with the mayo and we would have been happy with this sandwich. The simple Chicken Burger came enclosed with a mince patty with actual, fragrant Rosemary in it. The Lebanese Lamb Tzatiki burger is a giant affair. Burger buns stuffed with pita, hummus, cheese, grilled minced lamb, a fried egg and lettuce, this one is a huge meal by itself. Plus, fries on the side with a lovely Tzatziki dip. We recommend you share this burger with a friend so that you don’t feel terribly guilty afterwards.

What to drink

Stay clear of the over-sweet smoothies and instead go for their cappuccinos and espressos. We tried the Maple Latte and were happy to report that even though the coffee was spiked with store-bought maple syrup, it did add a nice smokey touch to the latte.

The DL on the ambience

A white and blue theme runs through the entire cafe. Really comfy sofas with a floral chintz print, cute and quirky art on the wall, tiled tables and floor, make this space a perfect Instagram moment. The first floor balcony with its pretty planters looks rather charming and we are hoping they open it out soon for seating.

So, we’re thinking…

When we visited the cafe, it had been just three days since they opened and hence there were lot of teething issues such as no power back up, confusion about orders and the food taking its own sweet time to reach the table. However, the staff was sweet enough to offer us complimentary drinks as a “sorry” of sorts. We are hoping to go back again when they have settled in a bit.
