Restaurant Review: OMG- Oh My Gorge Resto CaféPosted in : Restaurant Review on by : Disha Khurana
In the midst of all the traffic & chaos of Andheri-Lokhandwala area, the residential area’s & the by-lanes are as quiet as ever. Hidden in one of the by-lanes right next to the famous Oh Calcutta! is this new café called OMG- Oh My Gorge Resto Café. Its quiet easy to locate this place & once you reach there, you are instantly all smiles & warmed up with the cozy & cute interiors. The place has been done up really well with natural day light beaming in along with some comfortable seating & board games & Uno to get you started. They also have quite an interesting concept for their mains i.e. when you place an order for a main course, they give you a card & a dice & based on the number you roll out you get a small portion of whatever is written on the card next to the number. How cool is that!
I was catching up with a friend & decided to try out this much heard about place. I requested the owner to help me with a small portion for this review instead of their usual servings as I hate food being wasted. We ordered for the Chocolate Overload Milkshake & the Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake to beat this scorching hot weather & some appetizers. Both were quite refreshing & while I totally loved the Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake, the Chocolate Overload Milkshake was way too sweet for me.
I started my meal with a small portion of one of their salad’s Tabouleh with a Twist & though I couldn’t the figure the “twist” part, I quite enjoyed it especially since it makes for a quick small meal on its own. In the appetizers I tried the Sweet Potato Fries with Amla Aioli, Chicken Fajita’s on a Stick, Prawns Paprika. The Sweet Potato Fries with Amla Aioli was class apart; I totally digged in the amla aioli, innovation at its very best. Both the other two dishes were pretty decent but there was nothing in it to pull me to go back for seconds.
They also have a special Mango menu for the season & we tried the Chicken Fingers with Mango Chutney & the Mango Smoothie. Both of them were made really well; right from the tenderness of the chicken to the tanginess of the chutney, to the freshness of the mango smoothie, I enjoyed & relished it all. We even tried the Pulled Barbecue Chicken Burger & I cannot begin to tell you how amazing the filling was. It was a burst of flavours & my only wish was that the bread used for their burger was not a dense whole wheat one.
In the mains, we tried their day’s special Chicken Schnitzel with Mushroom Sauce, Fettuccine in Pesto Sauce & Grilled Fish in Lemon Butter Sauce. I totally & completely loved all the mains, apart from a bit of seasonings in their sauce accompaniments there was nothing I could complain for. The Chicken Schnitzel was perfectly crispy & juicy from the inside just how it should be while the Fettuccine was al dente with a lovely pesto sauce coating the pasta. The Grilled Fish in Lemon Butter Sauce was served with a small portion of Bell Pepper Rice which I quite enjoyed it. The lemon butter sauce was a bit too salty for my preference but the bell pepper rice more than made up for it.
During the time of my visit, the café only had a brownie for dessert & since I was way too full, I skipped it. However the owners do plan to introduce more offerings in their dessert section eventually. The café particularly does not serve Pork & Beef keeping the religious restrictions or limitations of the crowd staying in the residential areas around the café. They also have an all-day breakfast menu for Sunday’s just in case you plan on having a laid back meal.
