We were bored of trying the usual restaurants so the Mr. suggested, ‘Let’s go to some place classy. We seriously need to try different genre restaurants.’ The MR. and I, we both love places that are calm and gives us our time and space to speak and chillax. Till date we have avoided a lot of places saying it might be too noisy. Drop it! Loud music? Chuck it! But with 2018, we decided to try something new and out of our comfort zone and we ended up loving it!
Trench Restro Lounge by The Chocolate Room is a chilled-out dining place/café in Hill Road, Bandra, just opposite to Elco. As usual, I shortlisted this place after checking their menu and reviews/ ratings. We wanted to have a fun time and this place was just perfect for us!
Its super cool with classy interiors. They have two different sections; the outer section is more open with bright lighting and comfortable chairs. Did I mention they have swings chairs? Yes! You heard me right 😊 the walls are decorated with bicycle inspired frames.
They have stairs that lead to a more cosy and private area, apt for families and couples. The light is comparatively sober. Here you have more of a formal setup. Chair and sofas. They have music playing in the background which adds to the mood and vibe of the place.
First of all, I have to say I’m totally impressed by their menu. It’s a vegetarian’s paradise. So many options to choose from and all look tempting and yum!
Tomato Basil Soup
As always, we first started with soup – Tomato Basil – It was yummy! It was thick but not heavy, the quantity was just about right. It tasted a little sweet at the start but after adding salt and pepper to comfort our taste buds: P it was just perfect!
For the first trial we stuck to the basics. I’m sure I’ll come again to try other stuff 😊
Peri Peri Fries
After Soup, we were confused between two to three appetisers. After a lot of discussion, we settled for fries: P Loved the cheesy dip ❤ They were good.
Veg. Supreme Pizza
I just loved how it looked, how it tasted, every bit of it 😊 It was thin crust pizza with sufficient amount of toppings. The taste was amazing! We loved it so much that we wanted to have an another one. But, then we had to console the inner foodie cos we had to try other stuff especially desserts. Definitely, the star of the evening!
We were busy admiring and hogging all the lovely stuff that we forgot to order some drinks. We decided to go with Mango and Wild Strawberry Frappe (without cream). It was normal thick milkshake with fruit essence probably.
It failed to create an impact but it was just about okay. Both the taste and presentation, were OK. Moving on to the next.
Mr. and I, both are waffle freaks! We just need waffle all the time! So, without much a thought we ordered the Nutella Waffle and it was heaven! The presentation looked beautiful and the taste was yum! Yum! Yum!
Strawberry Patch Pancakes
The presentation was literally beautiful with delicate strawberries cut and decorated around freshly baked pancakes with ice cream and strawberry sauce. We literally fought for the last piece of strawberry in that plate and wiped the plate clean within few mins. Loved it!
After all this drama, we wanted something to drink, light weight and ice based. One of the staff members suggested granita. We ordered raspberry for me and black plum for the Mr. As expected, the raspberry was power packed and yum! Black plum was little sober and I could literally taste only ice. So, no Black plum for me.
The staff are friendly and very prompt in their service. Every order took about 10 – 15 mins, being a Sunday, it is good and consistent. They were quick and few of them catered to us with smile.
The pricing seems pretty reasonable for the yummy food we had. Over all tummy khush!
Overall, loved this place! Definitely will go again to try other yummy stuff!
Thanks for the read! Hope you guys enjoyed reading! Until next time..
