If you’re looking for a quick bite and yet want to enjoy your food, then Palette, the new urban kitchen at Kamla Mills, Lower Parel, is just the place. A no-frills, self service eatery with the menu and pricing listed clearly, one just needs to pick up one’s tray and help oneself from the vast array.
From tasteful sandwiches, appetizing bagels and hearty soups, to delectable wraps, lip smacking burgers and mouth-watering pizzas. Palette has them all. One may finish one’s meal quickly, but the meal is delectable nevertheless. Chef Ajay Mathur, the Executive Chef uses the finest ingredients and painstakingly creates each dish. There is no compromise on the taste or quality.
The soup with shredded chicken, veggies and the aromatic lemon grass was perfect for the rainy weather. The pizza we tried was unique with caramalised onions, which clearly enhanced its flavour. The wraps too had an interesting filling, with chicken folded in a a lip-smacking sauce. But what added the wow factor to the meal was the roasted potato salad. It was absolutely a palate pleaser. I have never enjoyed a vegetarian salad more.
The chocolate mousse cake was the only disappointment, with a tough texture owing to excess gelatine. Did not appeal to my taste buds at all. I should have settled for the Baked cheesecake or Tiramisu maybe.
Catering to all the cravings of the day – from breakfast to dinner, Pallette also offers free wi-fi to keep you connected during your lunch hour and special coffee breaks!
The staff is helpful and affable and Chef Mathur a culinary wizard who makes a simple meal seem so exciting and delicious with unusual flavours and textures. A next trip to Palette is already on my mind.
