We all have known Dinshaw's as an ice-cream outlet but now we can see them in all new look cafe, Dinshaw's Xpress Cafe, which is ‘The Complete Ice Cream Experience’ by offering a range Exotic Sundaes, Ice Cream Cakes, Smoothies, Waffles, Crepes, Thick Shakes, Frappes, Iced Coffees along with an Italian / Continental Food Menu- Pizzas, Pastas, Salads, Sandwiches & more. Extending now, we can see new Parsi Food menu too.
Located in the prime location of Koregaon Park, the cafe is a bit cramped with seating of around 20 people in total for indoor and outdoor. Being a hot summer day, we preferred to sit inside the cafe. It was packed thus had to wait for few minutes.
The new introduction to the menu was the Parsi food, freakshakes, and some sundaes. Veg Dhansak, Veg Berry Pulao, Chicken Farcha, Chicken Dhansak or Mutton Keema Ghotala are some of their signatures.
Our lunch started with the warm cheese Garlic Bread. Plated on the Pizza tray, it was cheesy and served directly from the oven. Fresh and tasty! We waited for long to try the main course Parsi dish, Veg Dhansak (Rs.199) and Rice. Usually made with meat, but the vegetarian version was also scrumptious. It is a medley of fresh vegetables and lentil. I was glad to have it with rice and the spices were a bit on the higher note, which of course, I liked. The taste was awesome!
I was curious to try Freak shake and ordered Melbourne Cookie Freakshake (Rs.250). Mahn! That was huge! It was fully loaded with oreo cookies, kit kat, gems, chocolate ice-cream, chocolate shake. So sinful! A must try for the chocolate lovers! Recommended!
Next was the luscious The Chocolate Toffee Turtle (Rs.210). Long glass with a mess of chocolate, home-made caramel sauces, nuts, cookies, vanilla ice-cream and molten brownie ice-cream. Could it get more heavenly than this? So so yummy! I loved it to the core! Highly Recommended!
Churros are my all time favourite. Jenga Churros was our last dessert to try. Stacked on a plate were fresh churros, drizzled with fudge sauce, sprinkled cinnamon sugar and topped with Vanilla ice-cream. The plate looks messy but it was worth a try! Warm churros, chocolate sauce, and ice-cream. Can't get better than this. Recommended!
Service definitely needs improvement, though, apart from that, the food was very nice. I will go again for the Toffee Turtle, Churros, and Dhansak. Please do visit the place and share your experiences in the comment box. Would love to hear from you guys! :)
