Anti-Brunch - The Little Next Door – Chilled out zone — Reviewed!

Brunches are always fun. Just what you need on a lazy Sunday – late waking up, leisure lunch, time pass with friends. Have been to so many amazing brunches be it Big Brunch at 212 All Day or Farm to Table brunch at Hyatt Regency, but the Anti-brunch at The Little Next Door was totally a unique experience. Anti-Brunch? Yes! The owner Ashutosh Joshi told me about the concept in which he wants people to come, eat, drink, chat, play with their family and spend the most of the time at their restaurant. Come as you are, come with any mood, you will always move out with a happy face. The Little Next Door entertains you with Books, Board Games, Jenga and Foosball every Sunday. Overall a chilled out vibes. What can you expect at Anti-Brunch?

Located in a quiet lane of Kalyani Nagar, as soon as you enter, a small yellow door will transport you to a chic, trendy, contemporary restaurant. The Subtle use of blue and white color gives it a very Mediterranean touch. You will be floored away by the simplicity and quaintness of The Little Next Door.

Brunch menu keeps on changing; apart from the live counters, you can order Pizza, Wraps and not forget the whole range of desserts! All this and more at only Rs. 495 + taxes.

After a small tour of the vibrant cafe, I was pretty excited to try the food. The dishes on the menu are inspired by European regions. We started with the fresh salad with the goodness of watermelon balls, pineapple, sprouts, kale leaves, lettuce and vinaigrette dressing.

It was a great start! Nearby salad counter was the fresh pancakes in the making and trust me those were the most fluffy, light, delicious pancakes I had in a long time. You can choose the toppings, I opted for honey and Blueberry compote. Highly Recommended!

I had my pasta three ways, as in all types of sauces. My choice was Penne Pesto. I loved it to the core. It was creamy and prepared with the choice of some exotic ingredients. Do not forget to try the Pesto Pasta.

From the grills, we had Broccoli and Potato Tikki which was delicious, grilled pineapple was charred properly and was my personal favourite. Veg Grills had mushrooms, onions, bell peppers. Very balance taste and grilled to perfection.

Amazing range of desserts can be seen on the indoor counter. Right from Chocolate cake to Red velvet pastry to Strawberry tart and brownies, you will be spoilt for the choices they have to offer.

I am going again there for some amazing food and quality time with my friends and family. Do let me know what are your experiences.
