I love being aware about new restaurants, bars, cafes, stores, humans and Oh! also dogs, definitely dogs. Anyway, you get the point, right? Well, a girl can hope. Since this is my debut blog post I’ve decided to write about a place that serves delish food with an impeccable semblance to some distinctly beautiful cafes in Europe. It made me reminisce my university days so why not!
The name is apparently derived from the Spanish phrase, ‘mi casa es su casa’ which means ‘my house is your house’. Well, if the name suggests that it’s ‘your house’ then why not serve free food because I don’t pay for meals that I eat at home, know what I mean? Okay, bad one. But the place isn’t. Su casa has two sections, an enclosed one to welcome you and cool you down from the Mumbai heat which then continues into an outside section that is exceptionally breezy and green (to maintain your chill level, Duh!). It is breezy to the point that my lunch napkins kept flying away, literally (but I’m not complaining). The outside section is picturesque, credits to the wall that’s full of small lush green pot plants.
The restaurant claims to be European but it also serves baos (Chinese steamed, filled, bread-like item) and offers a decent selection of dishes. We (yes, I was on a lunch date with a friend) started with a Teriyaki Cottage Cheese Bao and a portion of PeriPeri Fries. I’m no Gordon Ramsay in judging food but anything that makes me go ‘mmm’ is good enough for me; like ‘C is for cookie and it’s good enough for me’. From my fair share of travel experiences across three continents and savouring food at some of the best restaurants around the world, I take the liberty of saying that the appetizers were good. However, the fries could have been served hotter.
For main course I opted for Spaghetti Aglio Olio and I must say that it’s no ordinary olive oil, black pepper Aglio Olio. They’ve thrown in their own flavours of veggies and herbs into the dish to make it unique and it tasted Ah-mazing. I couldn’t reach desserts since the portions are very filling but next time I’ll reverse my course order.
The servers were cordial and gave me and my girlfriend enough privacy to catch up with each other without interrupting the conversation every now and then.
The best part about the place you ask? They serve chilled fresh coconut water. The cans are totally canning the natural, fresh food scene these days but Su casa gets an extra smile from me for this. Oh and did I mention that the place is pocket friendly too. *Cheap Thrills*
To conclude, I’m going to rate the place with smiles because I can’t afford stars (you might get the hang of my lame jokes soon, I hope), 1 to 5, 1 being okay-ish and 5 being ‘go BeThereNow’.
