It’s 145 Cafes second outlet in the city after their immensely popular one at kala ghoda.
The ambiance is young and vibrant with a huge square shaped bar, pool table, comforting seating and groovy music.
Their food menu is huge !!
The all day cafe serves breakfast to dinner that includes the best from around the globe.
Breakfast menu consists of cereals, waffles, pancake and eggs to order.
A healthy menu that includes quinoa, egg whites and avocados.
A global all day menu that consists of Asian, European and Indian favorites.
The cafe also includes some International dishes with a Indian twist.
The cafe’s bar menu is equally interesting, it includes a variety of Indian twisted cocktails along with international classics.
So here is what I had –
RAW PAPAYA SALAD –
Raw papaya salad made with lime/tamarind/chillies and peanuts.
A well made thai classic !
Quinoa salad made with pomegranate/brown onions and nuts, dressed in a lime vinaigrette dressing.
Extremely healthy yet equally delicious, crispy texture from the nuts, sweetness from the onions and freshness from pomegranate really bought out the flavours !!
SNALL PLATES :-
TANDOORI PRAWNS –
Prawns marinated with tandoori spices, grilled to perfection.
Served with upma polenta and spicy hummus.
The prawns were juicy, the upma was beautifully flavoured with curry leaves and mustard seeds.
Hummus was cool n spicy.
The dish as a whole came together beautifully, tasted fantastic !
A must try !!
FISH AND CHIPS –
Fish fillets batter fried to perfection.
Served with tartar sauce and french fries.
Not too oily, well made !
CHICKEN TIKKA CIGARS –
Deep fried cigars filled with shredded chicken tikka and cheese.
Served with spicy mayo.
The combination of gooey cheese and chicken tikka worked well together, crispy cigar rolls were comforting ;))
BUTTER CHICKEN BIRYANI –
Long grained basmati rice layered with boneless butter chicken/brown onions/coriander/mint and whole spices.
Served with raita.
The biryani had all the right elements, brilliantly made and executed !
Must try !!
COOKIE CRUMBLE ICE CREAM SUNDAE –
Creamy ice cream layered with oreo/bourbon/kit kat/choco chips and nutella .
It’s the perfect ending, super chocolaty…… extremely satisfying !!
Overall, 145 Bandra is Fantastic !!
It’s young vibe with comforting food is intoxicating.
Undoubtedly it has become a favorite hangout destination in Bandra.
Try it out !
