212 Cafe is located in a posh high end mall at Kurla, surrounded by well known pubs and restaurants. Kitchen Pops loved the interiors of 212 Café—simple and chic with an extended patio outside. A perfect place for a romantic date. Lightings are dim with soft music. The add on factor is that the waiters are friendly and helpful. We were not surprised with the efficiency each servers delivered. Kitchen Pops also had a glimpse of their kitchen and we must say it’s spic and span.
We started with Cream of Spinach soup; a subtle hint of herb flavors was oozing out from the soup. The soup was served with a thin crust of garlic bread. It was the soup of the day!
We tried few selected cocktails and a mocktail from the menu. Deadly Daiquiris was genuinely deadly. Just like margarita has salt on the tip of the glass rim, similarly, Deadly Daiquiris was covered with sugar. The drink had all the three elements, salt, sweet and sour. A taste you can relate to a strawberry sugar candy floss. We also tried All Night LIT, an amalgamation of 7 toxic liquors that will blow your mind. To make the drink on the sweet and sour flavor, they make their own house mix. In mocktails, we tried the Melon Fizzy, a minty flavoured drink, which had chunks of melons in it. A must have thirst-quencher during the summer.
We wanted to try something that’s healthy, and Watermelon & Goat Cheese Stack is one of the finest salads we had. The best part was that it was not a guilty pleasure and still tasted delicious. The second option in salads, we tried their House Style Ceaser’s Salad with tandoor cooked prawns; a treat for your palate. You can also try their vegetarian option with BBQ cottage cheese.
In starters, we tried their Cajun Baby Potato and Gambas Caliente. If you really want to try new flavors, these dishes are must try. Cajun Baby Potato is a vegetarian dish, which is well spiced with citrus and cracked pepper glaze. And for non-vegetarians, Gambas Caliente, a pan tossed shrimp with spicy garlic and paprika glaze is served with breads.
If you’re a pizza lover, then you must try their thin crust Spicy House Special, a vegetarian option with onion, capsicum, mushroom, American corn, jalapeno and chili. And for non-vegetarians, Barbeque Chicken is a must have. It’s a beautiful amalgamation of flavors of sweet & spicy sauce served with white onion, green peppers and fresh grounded pepper. For burgers, we tried the Shroom Burger and The Mediterranean. A must have for vegetarians, as it’s crispy and tasty.
In main course, we tried their Risotto AI Funghi and Fusilli Al Pesto. The classic mushroom risotto with Parmesan and basil drizzle is a good meal on its own. Whereas, Fusilli Al Pesto, is a fusion of roasted red peppers, garlic, basil with Parmesan cheese sauce. This dish can be served with add-ons of chicken or prawns. Although, Kitchen Pops recommends their 212 Roast Chicken, a delightful treat for your palate. And the best part is the flavors will remain the same along with garlic mash, except the vegetables served is based on the veggies of the day.
Last, but not the least, we present you with some of their delectable desserts from 212 Café. We suggest you don’t miss out anything on the menu, when it comes to dessert. Kitchen Pops highly recommends their Chocolate Caramel Cake, which has a biscuit base with mousse on top of it followed by a caramel layer with oreo and chocolate crush and caramel sauce with chocolate sauce. The next dish we tried was Tiramisu, an Eggless dessert served with chocolate sand.

- Vegetarian Shroom Burger
