Penthouze opened its doors with a revamped look to the public recently. It is the perfect party destination with a breath taking view of the city.
Popular for its Bollywood nights, they have not let go of it and it still happens every Wednesday. They also have a value for money brunch every Sunday with live performances and music.
The BTeam got a chance for an exclusive sneak peak of the F&B offerings and here’s how that evening went.
We started off with the Panko Fried Mediterranean Mushrooms. Fresh button mushrooms were stuffed with pesto and spicy mayonnaise. The pairing of the pesto and mayo was good. I also liked the texture of the mushrooms.
I also tried a pineapple based mocktail. It was fresh, refreshing and the right amount of sweet for me and I really liked it.
The Stuffed Mozzarella Chicken was simply delicious. The minced chicken was stuffed with fresh mozzarella cheese and marinated with mixed herbs. The cheese in the chicken as well as on top gave it the yummy creamy and gooey texture.
The Parmesan Crusted Chicken was another dish that impressed me. It had chicken breast sprinkled with parmesan and was served with olives and balsamic cilantro sweet chilly dip. Crispy chicken skin and cheese – a match made in heaven.
The Paneer Hariyali Tikka was served in a mini grill. It was marinated with spinach and tasted pretty good. The paneer cubes were thick and melt in mouth soft.
The Pita Pocket Falafel had crispy pita bread along with deep fried ground chickpeas. I would have preferred the falafel to be a little juicy because they had gone a little dry from the deep frying. The accompanying hummus was decent.
The Cilantro Jalapeno Pizza had cilantro, jalapenos, onions and olives. It had a nice thin crust and was really good.
The Penne in Pesto Sauce was a creamy pesto. I am not a fan of creamy pesto because I believe the pesto flavour is lost in the cream. Nonetheless, the pasta was al dente and the garlic bread was as per the standard benchmark.
The Lamb Burger had a minced lamb patty, iceberg lettuce, cheese and caramelized onions. It was served with potato wedges and a house salad. I found the patty to be a little over seasoned.
The Penne Pink Sauce was a blend of the red and white sauces served along with garlic bread. The sauce was balanced and flavourful.
The Chocolate Big Bang was a theatrical end to our tasting. Hot white chocolate was poured over a dome of tempered chocolate that was hiding the vanilla ice cream. It was a classic combination with a theatrical twist.
A big shout out to Carpe Diem & Team Penthouze for inviting and hosting us.
