Owned by Mrs. Anuradha Sawhney, all the dishes are curated by her. The menu ranges from Quinoa Bread to Organic Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, Vegan Cheese to Keto Tarts, to Vegan Chocolates. You ask it and they have it.
I was in awe by the choices they have to offer especially Vegan Butter and Vegan Cheese (VCheese). I must say, Anuradha is a culinary expert. Following are the dishes I tried....
- Pineapple Cream Cake
- Chocolate Truffle Cake
- Vegan Cheese and Butter
- 100% Whole Wheat Bread
- 100% Maida Free Spinach Bread
On the other hand the Vegan Chocolate Truffle Cake was pure indulgence with the goodness of jaggery. Dense, deep, silky, layered chocolate had ganache glaze. Sinfully decadent yet unbelievably healthy! This too was 80% wholewheat and sugar-free. The cake is perfect for the chocolate lover! Highly Recommended!! Pricing starts at Rs.600
Vegan Cheese and Butter surprised me literally! The taste and texture was no less than the regular dairy butter and cheese. I made a couple of dishes out of it and the taste was mind-blowing. Definitely, a wonderful alternative to the people avoiding animal products. Cheese is priced at Rs.200 for 150 gms and the Butter is Rs.200 for 200 gms (soon to be introduced)
The delightfully nutty taste was the feature of the 100% Whole wheat bread. Slathered it with the vegan butter, mint-coriander chutney and garnished with VCheese...Oh! absolute bliss.
Also, the 100% Whole Wheat Spinach bread was a healthy variation of the regular white bread. Green textured bread was visually appealing. Made some delicious sandwiches and devoured them guiltlessly.
