What’s the plan for the Sunday evening, yet not decided? Then it time to head to Makaza Sunsets @makazapune. It’s one of the coolest trendiest place in town. As the sunsets the party begins at Makaza. Makaza plays EDM, Progressive Techno music with some amazing Cocktails and Mocktails along with some yummylious food complimenting the drinks.
I would like to share some of my experience of food and cocktails:
Indo Greek Fries: These are loaded with Parmesan & liquid cheese, sprinkled with Makaza special spice, perfect bar bite with Whiskey based cocktail. #MustHave
Paneer Chilli: Basic Paneer Chilli which goes well with some Rum or Vodka based citrus cocktail.
Hummus with Falafel & Pita bread: This compliments with Eden Garden from the cocktail menu.
Just over & above the Appetizers:
Vegan Mushroom herb & Tikka wali Paneer : This is the part of the Shawarma family! Mushroom herb was missing the spice punch to it while Paneer was graciously marinated soft Paneer stole the show. Good portion size of the Shawarma served with Dip.
Nance Tikka Paneer Pizza & Exotic Toss Pizza: Both the pizza were superb in terms of Crust, Taste, Toppings, & Taste. Tikka Paneer had the spice punch, while the Exotic was loaded with veggies, perfectly baked crust. #MustHave
Kung Pao Veg Momos: Nice big & steaming hot Chinese Dumplings tossed in Oyster Chilli Sauce & cashew for the crunch. 6 pieces are served in bamboo steamer. #MustHave
Paneer Lasooni: Lusciously soft Paneer, perfectly marinated & cooked.
Mediterranean Chickpeas Salad: Salad is a must in such a scorching heat, a perfect mix of Watermelon, Feta, cherry tomatoes, along with fresh green roughly chopped veggies & chickpeas.
Let’s turn the table for the Mains:
Makaza Khow Suey Veg: One of the chefs specialty. Big bowl of Noodles veggies cooked in coconut milk garnished with condiments which were artistically served. It’s a meal by itself. You just have to mix it well & tweak the lemon on it. Sit back & enjoy.
Classic Fusion Desserts:
Pista Threesome: Gooey Pastrie with soft & delicate three layer texture along with crunchy pistachio.
I love Makaza: This one is again the fusion & Chef’s special. It’s a deconstructed chocolate bowl filled with Brownie, Walnuts, Almonds, chocolate topped Vanilla Gelato. #MustHave
Random Chocolate Gelato: Two scoops of each Chocolate and Vanilla Gelato placed on a layer of cookie crumble, served in a small pan along with some nuts.
Tiramisu: This seems to be good, I just got it hands on for the pic. It was vanished in less then 60secs!
Some of the coolest Cocktails I recently had at Makaza:
- Spring in the desert: Bourbon Whiskey, Red Wine, Honey, Fresh Persimmons, fresh Lime Juice.
Soul Smuggler: Scotch Whiskey, Apricot Syrup, Fresh Grapefruit, Beetroot, Basil Leaves & Fresh Lime Juice.
Blueberry Sour: Bourbon Whiskey, Blueberry Puree, Fresh Blueberry, Fresh Lime Juice & Egg White.
Eden Garden: Scotch Whiskey, Peach Puree, Fresh Rosemary, Fresh Lime Juice & Orange Juice.
Excotic Bali High: White Rum, Elderflower Syrup, Passion Fruit, Fresh Green Apple, Ginger Roots & Fresh Lime Juice. ( Do hear the Story from Deepak – The Bar-Tender about this drink.)
The Defloration: Vodka, Fresh Beetroot, Passion Fruit Puree, Fresh Lime juice, & Egg White.
Overall it was an fantastic experience, this place is huge with outdoor comfortable sitting area along with the separate indoor dance floor section.
