Cafe Trofima may be a difficult name to remember, but my dining experience here was unforgettable. This is by far one of the best restaurant or cafe that I have ever visited.
This place is difficult to miss with it bright and welcoming signboard and warm yellow lights outside. The ambiance is absolutely beautiful and has a modern look to it. The service too is polite and friendly, though it may be slow at times, it was worth the wait every single time.
We began with Fish (Basa) and Prawns for starters and it heavenly, both were cooked to perfection, tender, juicy and spiced beautifully. Next we ordered a Rosemary Lamb Bao, the Bao was soft and meat tender and packed with flavor. Absolutely worth a try. We then went for their Fish and Chips which was even better, the Fish was crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside, even the french fries served with it were cooked perfectly.
Their Pepperoni and Goat Cheese Pizza looks amazing and tastes great too, it comes loaded with goat cheese, not a dish for those with small appetites. We also had the Blue Sea Lemony and Classic Mojito, both were good but a little less ice would havemade it perfect.
For mains we ordered a Pan Seared Lemon Cilantro Rawas, which was quite spicy, and comes with a Sweet Buttered Olive Potato Mash, perfect combination.
We also tried out their Ferrero Rocher Freak Shake which was sinfully delicious. We ended with a cup of Cappuccino and Darjeeling Tea. While the cappuccino was decent, the Darjeeling tea was amazing, very refreshing and worth a try.
Even though we were full, the staff insisted we tried out their desserts and hence we had a Chocolate Ganache and Baked Yogurt. Both had a lovely texture and were packed with flavor.
This place is just 3 months old and yet full on a Tuesday evening, the food is that amazing. Strongly Recommended Place to visit. Keep up the good work.
