Restaurant Review : Global Chaos, FortPosted in : Restaurant Review on by : Disha Khurana Tags: Mumbai, Mumbai local, Restaurant review
The Fort area in Mumbai has been special to most of us for various reasons, most may say its special because of the Kala Ghoda festival but for me its special as it was Fort where I traveled every single day for my 1st job. So, when I got an invite to try the new fine restaurant that had opened in the next building where my 1st office was, I simply had to check it out.
After a traffic jam drive I reached Global Chaos on a Saturday afternoon for some good food & drinks to catch up with an old friend. We girls started off with a glass of Rose Wine & White Wine Sangria & ordered in for a few appetizers requesting them to serve us small portions. In soups, we tried the Shellfish Bisque & the Tandoori Murgh Shorba & both were great specially the Tandoori Murgh Shorba, it is something I could have every single day without a doubt.
In appetizers, we tried the Kokami Jhinga in Coconut Shell, Pulled Chicken Sliders, Baked Brie & the Middle Eastern Kibbeh. The Pulled Chicken Sliders were perfect bite sized & the coloured buns were super soft, even the coleslaw was refreshing & not too creamy. The Middle Easter Midn Kibbeh which in simpler terms was like a minced mutton seekh kebab again was beautifully flavoured but I wished it was a little juicier than it was. Even the Kokami Jhinga was a let-down as it was too salty & over cooked resulting into some hard-chewy prawns. I absolutely loved the Baked Brie that came along with some garlic bread, it was goey, cheesy & brilliant.
After some good chit chat we moved on to the mains & a few more drinks to go along with the meal & settled for the South African Chicken Bunny Chow, Prawns on Champagne Mustard Sauce on a bed of Spicy Aglio Olio Spaghetti & Black Pepper Chicken. The Black Pepper Chicken came with a chicken breast stuffed with sautéed mushrooms with veggies & some butter tossed spatzel on the side with a beautiful black pepper sauce drizzled over it. This was my 1st time trying spatzel & I quite enjoyed the complete dish. The South African Chicken Bunny Chow had some great robust flavours coming through every bite, I did like it but not as much as I enjoyed the other two. Out of all the 3, the star dish was the Prawns on Champagne Mustard Sauce on a bed of Spicy Aglio Olio Spaghetti. The Aglio Olio Spagetti was perfectly cooked but king size prawns being moist & juicy & that champagne mustard sauce was lip-smacking good.
From the drinks, I tried the Orange Caprioska which I didn’t like as the balance was totally off even after fixing it twice thus I finally settled for the Thai Grasshopper from the mocktails. Totally loved this one & definitely recommended. I got to try a sip of their Cosmopolitan & I was glad to realize they made their basic drinks quite well.
By now we both were stuffed, but you got to complete your meal with desserts specially when they have brilliant things on their menu. So, we tried the Hazelnut Crème Brulee & the Chocolate Lava Cake. The Hazelnut Crème Brulee tasted great but the texture seemed like it was overdone but I completely fell in love with the chocolate lava cake, oh so good! Highly Recommended.
Overall it’s a great place with the classy ambience to go for a nice date or dine with your family. The things you must try are –
- Tandoori Murgh Shorba
- Pulled Chicken Sliders
- Baked Brie
- Prawns on Champagne Mustard Sauce on a bed of Spicy Aglio Olio Spaghetti
- Thai Grasshopper (mocktail)
- Chocolate Lava Cake
