    What Makes It Awesome?

    Love Food Love good Mood - This is Spice it all about. Situated at Hotel Ibis Santacruz, a nice vibrant place with a good feel and ambience. All new menus curated. Being a 4-star Property the prices for 2 approx would be around 1200/+ which is Real VFM. Had a chance to visit this place last week and here is what we had -

    Skipped the Soup, Opted for Cafe (Quick Bites) along with my Beer. Maska Bun, all-time favourite had a bit of a twist. Hot that spicy hit of the crunchy Bhujia. Overall the Bun was soft with a generous portion of butter. Lovely sheen and tasted good.

    Bullet Chilli chicken - Semi-dry with scallions. Diced pieces of chicken with bell pepper/onions tossed in soy/garlic sauce. Looked nice. Bold flavours. Gave that spicy touch. Overall good.

    This place is known for its Momos and presented in a Tiffin box - 3 each (2 layers Tiffin) with 3 dips. Pan Fried Chicken Momos - could have been better. Maybe a tad. Minced chicken with spices. Had a nice texture though. Chef, maybe less stuffing and this can be better (just a suggestion)

    Chur Chur Paratha. This is so Delhi. Crunchy Paratha with different types of filling. Here the chef has used Aloo Pyaaz/Gobi and methi matter. Just a suggestion as it gets a bit messy when all the 3 are served together. Served with Dal Makhani was yum (lovely texture) and Raita. Anytime for Dal Makhani. This is comfort food.

    Phulka Soft Tacos with Peri Peri soya - again a good spicy tangy dish presented well. Veg consisted of Chilli Kidney beans Minced soya (had a good texture) Yellow cheddar (sharpness) and vegetables. Overall a nice dish.

    Do try the Super meals (meal by itself) priced at 429/+ Consisted of Dal fry, Steamed rice condiments like Crushed. Papad/Raita/Cilantro/Aachar/Lemon/Chilli and carrot pickle. Presented in Tiffin.

    Dessert - Rasmalai Panna cotta (Missed the Ras malai touch) set well, could have been better, however, the molten chocolate with vanilla Ice cream was well baked well.

    Overall - This place has a lot of potentials if marketed well. USP = Price. The ambience is good. Comfort food. Will be back for sure, till then cheers.
