Sly Granny Has New Menu Additions & They Include Everything From Popcorn To Gassi


    Sly Granny has just added a couple of quirky new dishes to its existing menu. There are salads, flatbreads, East Indian curries an even dramatic dessert additions.

    A Healthy Crunch

    If you have tried the quinoa salad at Sly Granny, you will be happy to know that the salad has been updated and comes with brown rice, roasted bell peppers, toasted almonds {for that extra crunch}, asparagus, pomegranate rubies, broccoli pesto, and all squirted with a bit of Tahini infused cream. The salad was very fresh, full of perky flavours, and a meal by itself. Next up was the popcorn shrimp. This is going to be our new French fries from now on. The cornmeal crusted, and deep fried shrimp was so moreish and it went rather well with the jalapeno and curry leaf salsa it was served with. Equally stunning was the shrimp flatbread, not only a beauty to look at or Instagram, but also to eat. Shrimp, cheese, mint chimichurri, hot sauce and slivers of onion and radish… can you go wrong? No, you can’t.

    The eggplant Parmigiana served with freshly-made sourdough baguettes came with crispy fried eggplant, a sundried tomato and caper sauce, and lots of parmesan cheese. I found the sandwich a bit too heavy, but vegetarians looking for a filling sandwich might love this number.

    Dessert Takes The Cake

    For the mains, we tried the East Indian Gassi curry with halibut {thankfully no basa on the scene} served on a bed of peas pulao {made with boiled and not basmati rice}, and a lovely curry with raw mango and onions. This would make for nice, light lunch option if you plan to go back to work after a meal here.

    A special shout out to the amazing new dessert addition, the Choco Mousse. No, this is no ordinary chocolate mousse, but its sophisticated Parisian cousin. A layer of chocolate brownie dotted with walnuts, then piled high with a chocolate cremeux {a kind of thick chocolate cream encased in more chocolate} and topped with most wonderful expresso chocolate mousse, to be mopped up with some intense grape jelly. I am coming back only to eat this again. And dark chocolate lovers, you will fall for this dessert too.
