Operating out of a snug little garage space in Kalyan Nagar, Mugful of Stories specialises in gooey mug cakes in popular flavours like Nutella, red velvet, and Oreo ‘n’ cream. Their Chocolate Burst Churros are unbelievably drool-worthy too! Mugful of Stories is located just off the highway in Kalyan Nagar (it’s just behind the Girias showroom). It’s run out of a spic and span garage that’s got a real snug vibe to it. A red-tile roof, fairy lights, bare basic chairs and tables make up for the ambience. Open only in the evenings (also, closed on Mondays), Mugful is headed by a bunch of young baking enthusiasts and a newly-minted pastry chef from Lavonne.
The star attraction of the sugar-loaded menu are the mug cakes. And they are worth digging into! We tried the Nutella Magik — a gooey, moist chocolate cake layered with dollops of silken Nutella and a scoop of the vanilla ice cream. The warm dessert is perfect for when you are in the mood for a treat or want to dispel the blues. In the mug cakes section, there are also other equally decadent versions like red velvet, vanilla, black forest, and Oreo ‘n’ cream.
The rest of the menu is made up of thick shakes and fries (the only savoury item on the menu), but we recommend you turn your attention to the churros. We tried the absolutely delectable Choco Burst — the slightly chewy, tubes of fried-up churros loaded with molten chocolate and presented with chocolate sauce. Sheer bliss!
