A deli(cious) experience

And the chain continues to wow our palates. Yes, Rahul Akerkar and his team have done it again. With the 6th Indigo Deli opening at the Inorbit Mall Malad, many of us can look forward to savouring the delectable food this brand offers more often now as it is closer home.

The cheer and vibrant atmosphere struck me as we entered, Buzzing with activity, the place was teeming with people.

Seated comfortably, on the wooden tables, my roasted sweet potato soup arrived a tad late but was worth the wait. Creamy and well flavoured, it teased my taste buds. Carbonara Pizza with ham and bacon, had a delicious topping with liberal amount of cheese, but the wafer thin crust was not to my palate. Too thin for my liking.

One can never tire of the Deli salad replete with eggs, salmon, ham et al. It is so crunchy and fresh.

The Roast chicken my friend tried, was done to perfection and the sauce complimented it as well. Mashed potatoes were thrown in for good measure for the carbs component. I relished my pan seared Halibut with a mustard mash. Tangy, the fish was of a nice texture and simply melt in my mouth.

My hot toddy sans alcohol kept my throats and spirits high. It was well made just to my taste. cheers!

The tiramisu I daresay was extremely disappointing. With oodles of cream instead of the customary mascarpone cheese, it was overpowered by the coffee flavour. The croissant bread pudding, our next choice,  was delightful, with the right element of moistness in it. The whisky added the quota of zing to it. A treat for the taste buds.

Originally conceptualized by Founder and Managing Director, Rahul Akerkar & Executive Chef Jaydeep Mukherjee, the menu has a plethora of options. The much-loved burgers and sandwiches, crispy wafer thin pizzas, seasonal soups and salads are all there. All-time favorites like the Pulled Pork Burger, Bombay Chicken Wings, Eggs Divinity, Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich, Chorizo Pizza will continue to be seen on the menu.

The Deli shop is an additional reason to visit this place. Well, there are several reasons to go back. The delectable food being the biggest. The service needs to be stepped up a bit, but it is the first few days, so we are not complaining. way to go Indi go!!
