Mockingbird Cafe it located in probably one of the best spots in the city, on the road that connects Churchgate Station to Marine Drive. At night, this stretch of road is no less than heaven. Even the interiors is nice and cosy, the staff here is friendly and even the owner was very keen on describing his dishes. A sign of a good restaurant.
I had visited this restaurant during the Hummus Festival, last November but didn’t get a chance to write about it. We started off with their Thai Hummus with Focaccia which was light and flavorful. A good start to our meal.
Next we ordered a couple of starters, Chili Garlic Calamari & Prawns, Pork Ribs, Mix Seafood Baguettes and Chicken Chimichurri Baos. The Calamari & Prawns were perfectly fried and served alongside a spicy mayonnaise dip. The Pork ribs were slightly small but delicious. The Seafood Baguettes were loaded with toppings and definitely worth a try for any seafood lover. Chicken Baos were tender and delicious, though the flavor could have been a little stronger.
Quite impressed by their seafood, we decided to stick with it for our main course as well and ordered a Classic Fish & Chips and a Lemon Coriander Rawas. The Fish and Chips were light and delicious, served with a mayonnaise dip. However the Rawas was heavenly, the Lemon Sauce was to die for. Strongly Recommended dish!
We also tried out a couple of their Coolers and Ice Teas, the Summery Melon, Ginger Minger and Peach Ice Tea, all off which did their job of cleansing our palate perfectly! Nice, light and refreshing.
Finally for desserts we tried out their Vanilla Pana Cotta and Chocolate Fudge. Both of which were nothing less than perfect. A fitting end to a great evening.
