So here is what I had –
LIFE SAVER –
Bourbon whiskey based cocktail made with red wine/ginger and lime.
Absolutely refreshing, a good balance of bitter and sour flavour, ginger added zing !
CREAM CHEESE ROLL-
Thin wanton sheet rolls stuffed with cream cheese and asparagus, deep fried to perfection.
Served with thai sweet chilli sauce.
The rolls had a nice crispy texture, the cream cheese filling was generous, tasted delicious with accompanied sweet spicy sauce.
LOTUS ROOT FRITTERS –
Potato patty sandwiched between thinly sliced lotus stem, deep fried to perfection.
Served with spicy dipping sauce.
A unique preparation, where the chef utilised the crispiness of the lotus stem to add texture to the potato patty.
Seasoning of mild indian spices and garlic added depth and flavour.
CREAMY HERB GARLIC SHRIMPS –
Classic butter garlic prawns made the right way where the star was truly the prawns, beautifully cooked, the prawns were succulent and extremely delicious.
SOYA KHEEMA PAV –
A vegetarian version of kheema, where minced soya and mushrooms are cooked with tomatoes, onion, garlic, green chillies and bold indian spices.
Super spicy and tangy, garnishing of butter made it even more delicious !
VERY BERRY CHEESECAKE –
Crushed cookies base cheesecake layered with berry infused cream cheese.
Topped with blue berry compote and garnished with chocolate.
Even though a lot of berries were used, it did not overpower….the cheesecake was super creamy and insanely delicious !!
Overall, i had a splendid time, AB Celestial is a fantastic option for a romantic date or a chilled out evening !
It’s an experience worth indulging 🙂
