I was quite interested in visiting this restaurant after I came across hundreds of pictures, if not less, of their signature “Freak Shake” on social media. It looked like a messy concoction of Chocolate and Cream served in a Jar, and I just had to try it.
So not knowing much about this restaurant, my brother and I decided to hunt it down after dinner, for some of their eye catching desserts. Not knowing what to expect we managed to track down this restaurant in one of the lanes in Nariman Point. And much to our surprise, this place was a huge, elegant, Fine Dine Restaurant. The Ambiance here is lovely, the desserts kept on display just filled me up with excitement.
The menu here was a bit confusing as it had lots of dishes which made it difficult to choose. Wishing that I could have all the dishes on their desserts menu, we went for the “King of Sundaes” and of course their “Freak Shake.”
The Freak Shake was every bit sinful as it looked in the photographs, we went with the Nutella and Hazelnut flavor and from the very first bite, tasted out of this world. A beautiful blend of flavors and textures, the freak shake is a must try. The best part of it was the Chocolate on top. However this is not a dish for the health conscious or small bellies, as its mainly Nutella with Cream, which makes it very very heavy.
The King of Sundaes on the other hand was a nice contrast to the rich chocolate flavor of the Freak Shake. It is a blend of Diced Fruits, small pieces of Cake and Brownies with three scoops of Ice Cream with a drizzle of jam and had a sweet sour taste. However this dish was a bit disappointing as waiter promised that it would contain Exotic Fruits and Ice Cream Flavors but rather it was just Pears and Green Apple and the Ice Cream flavors were Chocolate, Strawberry and Mango which was quite ordinary.
Pros : Good Ambiance and Service, Good Quality Food with Amazing Presentation.
Cons : Would not recommend the Freak Shake to the diet conscious, food is heavy on the wallet.
P.s : Spesso is definitely a place to visit if you wish to treat yourself or someone special. And yes, if the calories don’t matter, do try out the Shake.
