Indigo Delicatessen – Now at Koregaon Park too! — Reviewed!


The first thing I remember about Indigo Delicatessen is their super aromatic, super fresh Focaccia Bread. I totally had a great time when I visited their first outlet in Phoenix Market City. With expansion plans in mind, Indigo Deli opened their second outlet in Lane 6, Above Menchie's Yoghurt, Koregaon Park and I couldn't be happier! The colors and tones used in this Deli provide a casual vibe, warmth, and sense of comfort. Friendly, attentive staff adds to the overall experience. Space here is bit smaller than the one at Phoenix Mall.

The scrumptious menu has western comfort food like European and American. Chef Tushar Deshpande is the person behind all the lip-smacking dishes served to the patrons. I was invited for the tasting of signatures. Following were the dishes I tried....
  • Falafel, Hummus, and Tzatziki Sliders
  • Baked Jalapeno stuffed with Cajun Spiced Potatoes and Parmesan Crust
  • Batter Fried Paneer tossed in Homemade Chilli Garlic Sauce
  • Day's Special Salad
  • Day's Special Soup
  • Wafer Thin Pizza
  • Risotto
  • Linguini
  • Bombay Toastie Sandwich
  • Chocolate Whiskey Pate
  • Lemon Meringue Pie
  • Homemade Ice- creams
I tried their warm, aromatic and soothing teas to start the meal. Post conversation with the chef we were ready to board the culinary journey for a couple of hours. Started with the Falafel, Hummus and Tzatziki Sliders. The crispy fried medium spicy falafel was placed over the creamy, smooth hummus and topped with refreshing creamy tzatziki. All in one the dish was a super scrumptious one.

For the spice lovers like me, I liked the next dish served – Baked Jalapeno stuffed with Cajun Spiced Potatoes with Parmesan Crust. This dish is the Chef's take on Mirchi Vada. Half cut bhavnagri chillies are stuffed with medium spiced potatoes and crusted with parmesan then baked. I found it very basic but delicious.

Super scrumptious and full of flavours was the next dish - Batter Fried Paneer tossed in Homemade Chilli Garlic Sauce. Oh so yum! Fresh, soft paneer was crispy fried and sauteed in spicy, sweet sauce. Overall a perfect combination. Highly Recommended!

I always love the salads at Indigo Deli. So Chef presented us with the Day's Special Salad. The Salad featured crunch of mixed lettuce, fennel, sweetness of apple, dried cranberries, candied walnuts and feta for enhancing the flavours. I was in the food coma with that salad. Loved it.

Another signature and that was Day's Special Soup. I hate cauliflower when it is visible in any kind of cooking. However, this roasted cauliflower soup took my breath away. A hearty bowl of soup with truffle, parmesan with Cajun lavash was a bliss in rainy evenings.


And the most awaited one, the Wafer Thin Pizza. OMG! It was seriously wafer thin. 3 Smoked Peppers and 3 cheese pizza with the hotness of red, yellow and bhavnagri peppers, Scamorza and fresh Mozzarella. What could go wrong with it? Nothing! The smoky flavour, cheesy, spicy and perfectly baked pizza was stunning.

Risotto is all time favourite and when it is cooked with wild mushrooms and red wine, it surely is a crowd pleaser. The simple Italian classic had the creamy, silky texture. For me, it is an epitome of comfort food. Recommended!

Next on the table was the beautiful Linguine. It had aubergine, olive, capers in a smoked chilli tomato sauce with goat cheese. Bit spicy but very well made. Loved the sauce.

My love for grilled or toasted sandwich is eternal. A quick grab is what you need sometime. So, I tried their popular classic Bombay Toastie Sandwich. It was a big portion size to fill one. Sandwich had the yummy filling of spiced potatoes, lemon chilli jam, corn cob which was served with salad for freshness and some crispily fried potato wedges. I was in love with the dish! Would go again for it.

Desserts are the most awaited part at any restaurant. We tried Chocolate Whiskey Pate and Lemon Meringue Pie. Frankly for a non-alcoholic like me, whiskey pate was a bit off the beat but yes was quite popular amongst alcoholics. A must try who love liquor based desserts.

Lemon Meringue Pie on the other side was eye-appealing but was way too tarty for me. Crispy base, tangy citrus center, and colorful fluffy meringue makes this dessert worth photograph. Though excess citrus was bit disappointment, it was balanced out by the inhouse made ice-creams. 
All the ice-creams were better than the other. Following are the ones we tried...
  • Roasted hazelnut
  • Rum & Raisin (with alcohol)
  • Strawberry cheese cake
  • Dulce de leche
  • Pecan Butter
  • White Chocolate & Cherry
  • Mocha & Caramelized banana
  • Belgian chocolate truffle (with alcohol)
My favourite is the Roasted Hazelnut, Pecan Butter, Mocha and Belgian Chocolate Truffle. Indigo serves an ice-cream tasting platter to try and order.

So guys, whenever you are around Koregaon Park, do not forget to sneak into the new outlet of Indigo Delicatessen. Share your experience with me, would love to read from you! :) Enjoy few more photos...
