Le Kitchen, South Mumbai’s renowned catering service is hosting a month long pop-up at Kala Ghoda’s quaint art space, House of Tales. With a variety of cuisines on offer, Le Kitchen Gallery promises a true gastronomic experience with a different menu everyday.
The meal offers mocktails, soups, appetizers, entrees and desserts. Guests can select any one of each from several options in the menu. They have two seatings for dinner – 8pm and 10pm and tickets can be purchased online. I attended the Bake & Cheese Pop-up held on 20th August. The menu had delicious offerings and was undoubtedly a real treat for a cheese lover.
What I tried:
– Very Berry Cooler
– Bruschetta Bites
– Herb Cheese Fondue Soup
– Tomato Basil Soup with Parmesan Shavings
– Baked Mac & Cheese Closed Sliders
– Mozzarella Wrapped Broccoli & Courgette
– Caramelized Onion & Goat Cheese Pie
– Grilled Vegetable Pilaf with Red Wine Jus Drizzle
– Baklava Cheesecake
– Flourless Chocolate Cake with Rum Soaked Orange Wedge
– Baked Sesame Almonds
What impressed me:
– The mocktail was refreshing and perfectly sweet
– Bruschetta Bites were a lighter version of the classic Chilli Cheese Toast
– Mozzarella Wrapped Broccoli & Courgette was cheesy and delicious
– Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Pie was undoubtedly my favorite. The crust was perfectly baked and was filled with sufficient amounts of cheese. Being a huge fan of Goat Cheese, this was a win-win dish for me
– Grilled Vegetable Pilaf with Red Wine Jus Drizzle was a burst of flavours in the mouth
– Both Baklava & Cheesecake are lip-smacking dessert creations individually, but together they are absolutely irresistible. Though this was a deconstructed version of the dessert, I thoroughly enjoyed every bite of the unusual combination.
What didn’t impress me much:
– The soups were slightly bland for my liking
– Baked Mac and Cheese Sliders were dry and could certainly do with more cheese
The pop-up ends on 13th September, 2015.
