Dine By The Beach At This Rooftop Restaurant In Neelankarai
This restaurant makes for a perfect cosy date while hearing the crash of waves and sea breeze along with some orgasmic food.
What Makes It Awesome
Enter Asvah 24 in Neelankarai and you'll fall in love with the aesthetics of the place. Their Srilankan interiors and the petite library are all very well set up. They have an open rooftop overlooking the sea as well. And what adds to this awesomeness is their food! Of the menu offering healthy soups, salads and many entrees, here's what we loved.
Asvah 24 excels in making French, Italian as well as Mexican cuisine. We tried their fried chicken with butter chicken dip from their starters. The dip with fried chicken does magic in your tongue. Don't miss their baby pork rips of beef khurchan tacos! We recommend you to to try their mushroom stuffed with chestnuts. The place is a haven for seafood lovers with shrimp cakes and crab crostini. Moving on to the main course, we tried their Fish pie with tomato and basil salad. Safe to say that it melted in our mouth with the slight saltiness of the sea. You could go for their lamb moussaka or veg carpaccio. They have pasta as well to try!
While we were looking for something continental, we chanced upon the Rabadi. Now if you're someone who has feasted Rabadi in the gullies of Delhi and Mumbai like us, Asvah 24 manages to get us excited and nostalgic. The Mousse Au Chocolat, which is basically a type of melted dark chocolate mousse topped with white chocolate is another recommendable dessert for chocolate lovers. Or you could go for a sweet and soul kaffir lime pannacotta. If you want to grab a smoke then they have a separate room for you to do that without polluting the fresh air environment.
What Could Be Better
Though the starters are priced at INR 375, we wish their main course was priced a little lesser.
We hear that they have dropped a range of homemade ice creams among other specials, so you might want to check that out, while you take in the blissful ambience!
