Restaurant Of The Week - Monsoon, Aerocity

Looking to explore a Never-Seen-Before Menu in a peaceful setting, Aerocity has a new gem called Monsoon and it is as tranquil as the name suggests. Another venture by Cafe Lota, all items on the menu come with a twist and local ingredients that will have you wanting more. Here’s our take on some of the top picks.

Let Your Tummy Do That Happy Dance!

One look at the menu and we guarantee you would want to try every dish on that. With an exciting range of small eats, this place will be your new go-to spot for the week! We recommend you to begin your much-awaited food tour with Buckwheat pancakes topped with mushroom, spring onion, and zarai cheese.

These beautiful slices of heaven come with a spicy chilly garlic chutney adding just the right amount of flavor to the dish. Next up was a portion of their odd veg kebabs - beetroot, pumpkin, and mung bean, bottle gourd and mushroom make for an exciting date with veggies. Without much ado dive into their Prawn Pepper Stir Fry where the prawns were rightly spiced and a must-try. Their lemon and ginger chicken is that one friend who will never disappoint ‘cos they’re sooo good!

While your tummy did a happy dance, little did you know what a feast awaits you. Armed with fresh cutlery, begin your next gastronomy journey with their Tamarind Fish, which let’s be clear, will heal any South Indian’s craving for an authentic fish dish. This was followed by Dhokar which is green pea and split chickpea dal dumplings in a traditional Bengali mustard curry complete with hot luchis. Again, we highly recommend you try this.

Now, for the star and the talk of the town - Monsoon’s signature Broccoli Makhni that comes with a portion of pudina paratha. Before we dive into how brilliant this dish is, whoever thought broccoli could help vegetarians FINALLY know what butter chicken tastes like, take a bow! Whole broccoli in a malai marinade with a butter chicken-like gravy makes us believe that the world continues to be a better place. With an unstoppable grin, the meat kulchas that they take pride of will definitely be your love at first sight. Stuffed with goat meat and bone marrow with a side of garlic raita the flavors will be irresistible for sure.

Weight-watchers, Monsoon has you covered as well with their Chorizo Pulao - organic quinoa cooked with Goan chorizo sausage, roasted bell peppers, zereshk berries with a sunny side up egg (total drool-fest). Finally, on to the desserts, you must try once two of their signatures - millet kheer topped with salted caramel and almonds & chocolate torte. One word to describe both? DELIGHTFUL! The chocolate used in the torte is not only organic but also sourced from within India, as are most of their ingredients across dishes. Monsoon had us at hello and we have proposed our love for their menu, you are all invited to the wedding!


Final Thought

Be it a mid-week craving between meetings or a weekend to chill with family and friends this new outlet is ticking all the right boxes for us. Set in beautiful interiors that reflect the season of Monsoon and food that is absolutely eccentric, we are rooting for this!
