Apache now has a new avatar in Viman Nagar. Situated behind the Phoenix Mall, it has a ground floor seating with a mezzanine as well as a humongous rooftop seating.
Funky scooters, posters, quirky quotes and handcarts make this place lively.
We started off with the Masala Cheese Fries. Served on a miniature scooter, the thick cut fries were well seasoned and served alongside a cheese sauce. The cheese sauce was really delicious. I think it was a brilliant idea to serve it as an accompaniment rather than making it messy by smothering it all over the fries so that the fries retain their crunchiness.
The Roasted Moongfali Bhel was served on a bed of green coriander chutney with onions, tomatoes and peanuts. When mixed well, the bhel tasted pretty good.
The Tandoori Chicken Chaat had chicken morsels smothered with the sweet imli and green mint chutney, curd, tomatoes and some shev. The overall taste was a bit too sweet too for me because it conflicted with the idea of a regular tandoori chicken.
The Tandoori Chicken Caesar Salad had some chicken chunks, iceberg lettuce, shaved parmesan and a generous helping of mayo. It was very delicious mainly due to the freshness of the lettuce.
The Truck Full of Appalam Chaplam had three types of papad served with a mint mayo, green chutney and tomato ketchup. It was quite an innovative way of serving the papad in a truck. Nevertheless, I didn’t understand as to why a dip would be needed with a papad.
I had the Smoking Pineapple mocktail which was a mix of smoked pineapple, elderflower, rosemary, pineapple juice and sour mix. It was a really impressive mocktail with a smooth flavour of pineapple and rosemary. Maanas found it so good that he actually requested for the same but just with some vodka. How typical of him, aye?
The BBQ Chicken Pizza was amazing. A thin crust pizza with smoked flavour from the chicken quite impressed me.
The Pepper Paneer Pizza was surprisingly good. I’ve never been a fan of paneer in a pizza but I must say the base tomato sauce had some good flavours and enhanced the overall taste of the pizza.
We also had the Thai Chicken Red Curry & Thai Veg Green Curry. Both of them were served with a bowl of rice. The curries were creamy and had subtle Thai flavours of lemongrass, galangal and coconut milk.
We flew high at Apache and it was a decent experience overall. A big shout out to Sannaya from Carpe Diem for inviting us and Team Apache for hosting us.
