Krustys Bistro in Kharadi has been a saviour for me. All I have to do is walk downstairs whenever the food in the office canteen is meh! (Psst, I work in WTC).
The place has a touch of modern European, vibrant and chic vibe. Big booths by the sides, a centre community table and an open glass kitchen builds up your excitement to the amazing food that is about to come your way.
We were recently invited for a tasting and here’s a brief summary of my experience.
The Trio of Bruschetta had three different toppings. The roasted beet mousse and black olives bruschetta had a lovely and subtle sweetness from the beetroot and the olives to cut through the sweetness. The herbed cream cheese and onion compote bruschetta had this lovely sweetness from the caramelized onions and it paired brilliantly with the cream cheese. The creamed spinach and confit tomatoes was good. It had spinach of which I am not a big fan and yet, I ate that without a blink of an eye.
The Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Croquettes were quite inventive experiment from the Krustys Laboratory. The bacon used is actually made from chicken fat and this took our BaconBaba by surprise as he felt deceived. He liked it nonetheless as did I.
We also had the stone baked thin crust pizza of Sauteed Mushrooms, Herbed Cream Cheese, Caramelized Onions and Wilted Spinach. The crust was super thin, great flavour from the base tomato sauce and the added toppings were a bonus.
The Spinach & Ricotta Ravioli was served in a wine butter sauce with shallots, sundried tomatoes and roasted almonds. The sauce was rich with a nice zing from the wine and the roasted almonds gave a good crunchy element.
The Bacon Wrapped Chicken Roulade was served with a red wine jus, smoked chicken sausage pate, some roasted onions, herb mashed potatoes, carrot puree and sautéed mushrooms. Each and every element of this dish was treated with respect and it shone out. I loved the silken smooth carrot puree, the sweet and crunchy roasted onions, the sautéed mushrooms, the bold flavours of the jus, it was just brilliant.
The Thyme & Balsamic Lamb Chops had pomme puree, asparagus, spring onion bulb, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots and micro basil. The chops were well cooked. Each element put together in one bite was a flavour bomb.
We ended our feast with the Belgium Chocolate Cheesecake which used 70% dark chocolate. I am not a fan of dark chocolate but the others went gaga over this. If dark chocolate is your thing, I’d recommend you to try this.
A special mention for the Spaghetti Aglio Olio here. The slightly burnt garlic, the perfect al-dente spaghetti coated in olive oil, grated parmesan, olives, aah, it is UNPARALLELED. You must definitely try the SAO if you’re here.
A big shout out to Sijo from Ideosphere for inviting us and Rohhan and Team Krustys for hosting us. Krustys currently has beer from 4 breweries being served and also has various Oktoberfest offers along with some lip smacking food.
