We were in Bandra yesterday and were looking for a place to eat. Our friend Tyrel suggested this newly opened place called Pali Village Cafe and for us it was love-at-first-sight. This delightful place is straight out of an Italian village and felt like a busy city street on a warm sunny evening.
Right on the Pali Naka crowded street, you have to try hard to spot this place. But don't be fooled because the interiors are massive. There are two dining areas on the ground level and three on the first floor. We sat at the little balconette, which has only two small tables and overlooks the ground floor. We even bumped into the owner, Suren Joshi who along with his fiance Mishali Sanghani, runs the place.
The apple cinammon muffin was the warmest, softest muffin that we've tasted in Bombay. The three onion soup was not too watery neither too thick. Sonu ate the grilled peppercorn chicken while Jasleen sampled the pan seared rawas. The complimentary bread basket with flavoured butter was the icicng on the cake. After eating this wholesome meal, we unfortunately had no place to eat the desserts, but we'll do that the next time we go there.
The place is extremely romantic, so we suggest you plan a surprise for a date. It's the perfect beginning to a passionate love story.
These are the pictures we clicked while we were dining.
