Global Plat­ter

India Today - - SIMPLY GUJARATI - By De­vika Chaturvedi

Softly lit in­te­ri­ors with groovy jazz play­ing in the back­ground set the mood at this lat­est en­trant to the café scene in Ahmed­abad, Turquoise Villa. This café opened in May and since then has been slowly yet surely be­com­ing a favourite evening haunt for many Am­davadis. The café is de­signed to please with its turquoise blue and pearl white theme that might re­mind you of a villa you saw on a Greek isle. The seat­ing space here is taste­fully done with a mix of king size so­fas and low rise chairs. The out­door seat­ing area is highly rec­om­mended on a pleas­ant day and is sure to set the scene for many lovely din­ner dates.

Their menu, de­spite be­ing veg­e­tar­ian, is a mish­mash of global in­flu­ences fus­ing many di­verse tastes into one. Here you’ll find street food rang­ing from Delhi’s Chandni Chowk chaat spe­cial­i­ties to New York style piz­zas, from Latin Amer­i­can street food de­lights such as em­panadas and tacos to Indonesian nasi goreng, or from a French crème brule to our very own Mum­baiya gola. A per­fect ex­am­ple of fu­sion food can also be seen in the pav- bhaji fon­due which is a hot seller here. Have the lo­cal Manek Chowk chilla chaat or per­fectly done mezze and egg crepes. The jas­mine iced tea is a great thirst quencher that goes well with any of their dishes. Av­er­age meal for two Rs 300 to Rs 500 Where Cen­ter Point, Panch­vati, Ahmed­abad Tel 079 40373000
