It’s Friday.Yaaay..:) The weekend at last! You wake up (grudgingly!) in the morning, wipe the drool off your face, rub your eyes three times (don’t worry you won’t be transported to Kansas!), and stumble across to the curtain and pull it wide open..And there’s only one thing you want right now..A perfect breakfast with a perfect cup of coffee.
And believe me, there’s something magical about waking up for a relaxed breakfast on a Friday morning in this beautiful season
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? So A quick search online brought me to ‘Qiso Cafe – a simple and unique eatery in Silicon oasis. It ticked all the right boxes. Non-vegetarian? Check. Affordable? Check. Breakfast and Lunch Items? Check. Coffee? Check! So there was no way we could miss their breakfast menu @Qiso Cafe. And the best thing is they do have an all day menu , so no worries you can have your yummiest pancakes for dinner too…!!
The best thing I loved about this place is their unique nook for kid’s .They do have a story telling area , with the mike settings and lot of books .They organise kid’s day out by tying up with nurseries and schools, and provide the story teller along with food , so it’s a definitely a day out for kids with some interesting activities
The next interesting factor was their mini food mart. Almost all the products were imported and organic .
Coming back to menu, the first thing I ordered was a cappuccino (yes, I replaced cappuccino with coffee) , since I didn’t have anything from morning and was waiting to land here to have some refreshing hot drink.
The taste of this soothing cappuccino will definitely charm you, but that’s only after you’ve gotten over the unique presentation of this very simple beverage. That double layered coffee mug, helps you to hold the cup without much hassle of holding the hot cup of cappuccino.
Morning Glow – Once the soothing cappuccino was in , thought to have some morning glow too ( obviously who doesn’t want that glow in your face).It was refreshing drink with a mix of carrot, orange , mint and parsley , which was quite filling and hence its definitely a thumps up .
Caesar Salad – Nowadays, the almighty Caesar salad reigns JJJ. Wherever I go, I will end up ordering either Caesar salad or kale salad .Since kale salad was not there in their menu, opted the former and it was stacked high with romaine lettuce, anchovies and croutons, it’s got plenty of visual appeal. Its taste, while hard to describe, is an amalgam of garlicky, smoky, salty and lemony.
Super Egg Breakfast – The next in our table was Super egg breakfast which was kind of egg Benedict itself with poached eggs , cream cheese , garlic spinach , toasted bread , smoked salmon and hollandaise .I felt the rich sauce made of butter, egg yolks, and lemon juice made the egg benedict more flavourful but was not getting along with the smoked salmon
Buckwheat Pancake – When you have a pancake lover along with you , you don’t have any other option other than ordering the same .I think I’m having the pancake with buckwheat for the first time and I absolutely loved it . Deliciously fluffy, perfectly crisp and bursting with blueberries; this is the breakfast of dreams. These healthy buckwheat pancakes filled with anti-oxidants, fibre and they’re also gluten-free
Chicken Quesdilla – Tried this dish from their appetizer menu, but for us it was indeed main course .It was packed with flavours with cheese , shredded chicken, peppers and guacamole .The cheesy interior melts scrumptiously in your mouth, while the browned tortilla on the outside provides a crunchy texture. It’s pretty much the perfect snack food
Ravioli Romania – Since we were so hungry , we end up ordering the dishes for lunch as well and ordered this yummy pasta from their pasta menu. Ravioli is a type of dumpling composed of a filling sealed between two layers of thin pasta dough which was deliciously saucy coved stuffing with chicken inside.They originated as a traditional food in Italian cuisine.
Chocolate cake with Icecream – Warm and fudgy with premium vanilla ice-cream melting on side, this nutty warm chocolate was definitely chocolate heaven.Was expecting the warm chocolate to ooze out, but didn’t work out that way .Nevertheless ,Words cannot describe the smooth taste of this chocolate dessert!.
