My delightful experience with Cafe Thulp! Totally Thulped!
I normally don’t do a lot of restaurant reviews though I do visit many new ones.. Only when one of it has left a lasting impression do I write about it, whether they made me very happy with the food or totally pissed me off. But I did get thulped with this one 🙂 Cafe Thulp surely comes in the first category 🙂
Yesterday night, N and I were in the mood of eating a burger and Ojas wanted to eat pasta. We were wondering where to go so that we can get both and then Cafe Thulp came to my mind. Now I had visited Thulp once before but it was a hurried visit at about 3:30 in the evening and as it was post lunch, I just had a lemonade and french fries then with Ojas and a friend. I did like the ambiance of the place, simple and convenient.
So I went there again yesterday all set to sample their food and I was in for a very pleasant surprise because I was certainly not expecting this good food 😉 It was yummy. We ordered corn quesadillas chicken for starters which came with salsa and was one of the yummiest thing I have eaten in the recent times. The salsa was perfect and quesadillas perfectly crisp with a brilliant filling.
We ordered a tomato cheese chicken pasta and falafel burger (which I was totally amused with, never heard of a falafel burger) for the main course and both the dishes were mindblowing.
The pasta was routine but perfect to the last spice, an authentic Italian taste was surely what you got (which didn’t really suit Ojas, I guess. So N and I had the pleasure of gobbling down that too!) The burger, as I said above, was a total surprise. I haven’t really thought of putting a falafel in a burger before and after eating it there I am wondering why? With a little humus in place of mayo and lots of raw veggies, it seemed like a healthier version of burger too :D.
All in all, a brilliant meal was had and surprise surprise when the bill came, with a lemonade and the above dishes the bill was still under Rs 500/- which is so rare these days.
In nutshel,l a place I would surely recommend to all. I hear they have a delivery branch called Asia in the box and I am waiting for the first opportunity to try that.
Food – 4.5/5.
Service – 3.5/5.
Ambience – 3/5 (It is nothing extraordinary but they do have the standard cafe things, games, books etc. What I liked was that they have a section of books and games for kids as well starting from 0+. So thoughtful)
