Tales and Sprits has never disappointed me with their food and innovative Cocktails. Food is really outstanding and it’s a vegetarian restaurant. I have tried almost every thing on the menu, on my multiple visits with friends and family.
Recent ongoing Martini fest gives me a one more reason to visit.
The B Team was invited for tasting of their signature Martini and Food.
Martini’s we tried :
Ferrero Rocher Martini – It had Vodka, crushed black pepper, nutella, rice Krispies with a Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Ball on the rim. Mixed flavours of Sweet with a hint black pepper gave unique taste to it.
Espresso – Vodka, espresso, simple syrup. Strong flavor of Coffee simply compliment the Vodka presence. Nice bitter taste with after flavor of Vodka made this drink of the night.
James Bond Series 007 – Vodka, sweet and sour, green olives (stirred not shaken). It was one of the strongest Martini of the lot. Warmth would be felt with every sip.
Cotton Candy Swirl – Vodka, strawberry crush, pineapple liquid, cotton candy, lime. This had dramatic effects in the preparation, soft cotton candy was placed and Vodka was poured out which melted and eventually and gave a sweetened after taste.
Dragon Tales – Vodka, jalapeno, dragon fruit, farm basil and lime juice. Next strongest Martini with little different taste from the rest due to the basil and Dragon Fruit.
T&S Dirty Martini – Gin, olive juice, lime juice. This is the signature Martini from T&S with a twist of lime along with Gin mixed with Olive brine.
The Mr Freeze – Vodka, grenade, raspberry eye balls, sweet and sour.
Porn Star Martini – Vodka, orange liqueur, passion fruit, lime, golden petal dust.
Broken Heart Blues – Vodka, gin, lime juice, blue curacao, edible purple petal dust.
Jalapeños & Mozzarella Cigars: This is one of the best Mozzarella Cigars I have ever tasted. Crispy cover with oozing Cheese within. Served with Pink pony dip.
Eadamame Gyōzas: This was bit dry as per my palate with less stuffing and flavourful.
Shitake Bok Choy Gyōza: Shitake are basically an edible mushroom native to East Asia, which is cultivated and consumed in many Asian countries. It is considered a medicinal mushroom in some forms of traditional medicine. This was nice an juicey compared to the earlier one with strong flavor of Garlic and Ginger.
Balsamic Mushroom Skewers: Nice big Juicey Mushroom grilled to perfection with chimmichurri which is an uncooked sauce used for grilled meat; it comes in a green version (chimichurri verde) and a red version (chimichurri rojo) and seems to come from Uruguayan cuisine. It is made of finely chopped parsley, minced garlic, vegetable oil, oregano, and white vinegar. In Uruguay, the dominant flavoring is parsley, garlic, red pepper flakes, and fresh oregano.
Wine Cheese Popcorn Soup: This an unique and signature soup from T&S. It’s nice, thick and warm popcorn flavour soup with wine cheese infused. It is served with Bucket of crunchy popcorn to add more flavour to it.
Spa Salad: Very nicely presented in an half cut Pineapple stuffed with mixed leaves, Brussels sprouts, Broccoli, apple, Pineapple tossed in Mustard sauce, Coconut oil and chilly Dressing. Overall an healthy affair.
Thai Jungle Curry: One of the Best Thai Curry in the town. I bet you won’t regret this. Getting the perfect consistency without losing or overpowering other flavors is the most important thing while preparing Thai Curry, and T&S achieves it ease.
Mascaporne Cream Cheese Pizza: Thin crust pizza with toppings like Tomato Concasse, Marinated peppers, Zucchini, farm fresh onions, spiced up with Paprika Flakes. Pizza retains its crispiness till the last bite.
Malai Paneer Balchao: This was absolutely an outstanding dish. Soft Paneer chunks cooked in fiery Goan Vegetarian pickle paste served with Buttered Buns. Perfect spice levels with nice red in colour might increase your appetite.
T&S Biscuit Bhakri: A Rajasthani fusion preparation, Cumin scented Crisp Bhakari served with mashed Potato – Onion Subji along with spicy Lasooni Thecha.
Citrus and Berry Parfait: One of the fancy dessert from T&S. Mandarin, white chocolate berry parfait covered with chocolate shell & it is flambéed.
Baklava & Butterscotch: T&S is the only place where authentic Baklava served with Butterscotch Ice-Cream is served. The first look itself is drooling.
A big thank you to Zainab for inviting us and Sasha, Team Pomelo Social, Sagar and Team Tales & Spirits for being an excellent hosts.
