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)
Sounds awesome…but then its too far from my place…will visit sometime when I am in the area
I think I’ll try making a falafel burger at home
Sounds wonderful! We get Falafel in all sorts of stuff here – right from falafel bagels to burgers and rolls 🙂 But even falafels are fried 🙁 I tried making the baked version, but it did not taste as good – have to try it in my paniyaram pan next. Falafel in pita pockets, with hummus, jalapenos and salad tastes absolutely yum!
number 1 ) what in the world is a falafel burger??? I’m curious to see what it looks like actually!
and number 2) WHERE is this place??? *slurp!* 😀 😀

Yummyumm…i love falafel too..i have always eaten it that way…in pita with loads of salad and hummus. I love it. I make it at home also quite often. 🙂
Its so diff to have a post from you which is about food but no of something made by you 🙂 🙂 🙂
The meal sounds delicious. But what surprises me is the price you paid for all of that. Something less than 500 for all those things you mentioned is incredible. Good to know India still has some places that don’t overcharge 🙂
sounds totally yummyyy….. falafel burger is indeed a good idea 😉
Whoa! Let’z meet there next time 😉
When u are meeting, call me too… 😉 😛 Am hungry for good food…. 😛 and good company… 🙂

Falafel Burger? Okie, that’s inventive!! 😀 but i am not replacing Mayo with anything else Monu!!!!! 😆
Sounds like a good deal…and it’s so difficult to get good pasta when you crave it!
