A Delectable Afternoon at Malaka Spice ft. Chemistry


Lunch dates are my favourite. I love putting thought into my outfit and checking out new places in the city. However, from time to time all I want is my usual favourites without really thinking too much. One such comforting go-to restaurant is Malaka Spice and speaking of outfits, (surprisingly) the easiest option for me is dresses.

Recently Malaka Spice launched their Saavan Shraavan menu delighting both, vegetarians with Shraavan specials and meat-eaters with Saavan picks. From tribal veggies to country chicken and farm-fresh produce cooked in the signature Malaka Spice style, everything about this menu seemed rather exciting to me and so I spent a fabulous afternoon there last weekend just indulging.

For the lunch date I wore this tube dress from Chemistry that I picked up from Central. The collection of dresses by Chemistry has never disappointed me. I love the varied styles, colours and just how perfectly size XL fits me. (Read about my other Chemistry favourite.) I'm a huge fan of tube dresses and have no qualms about opting for them as often as I can. I paired my dress with a light golden cardigan from Zara and tan wedges from Westside. As for the accessories, I opted for a simple New Look sling, a charm bracelet from Splash and a layered neckpiece from Colaba Causeway.

The afternoon was exceptionally delectable as we gorged on the monsoon-special treats. We started our meal with the Assorted Fruit & Potato Stuffed Crispy Pockets. The unique blend of flavours of the stuffing combined with the crispiness of the outer pocket was inexplicably delicious. Next up was the Vegan Sushi, my personal favourite! I've never been a Sushi person but this dish has been an absolute game-changer. Now here's the twist; given the focus of this new menu on local farm-fresh produce, the rice used for the Sushi too is locally-grown and hand-pounded. You can choose between Indrayani (white rice) or Ambemohar Tukda (brown rice). We opted for the latter.
It would be unfair to not try the Saavan special meat and so we ordered the Thai Roasted Country Chicken. Everything about this dish from the appearance and texture to the taste had a very country-side feel to it and really called for being tucked into with one's hands. Up next was the quintessential sweet-treat, the Irish Coffee Dome. What an exceptionally delicious combination of Irish baileys, espresso and cream! Simply writing about it is enough to tickle my taste-buds as I reminiscence the divine flavours...

If you're looking for comfy yet chic dresses, I strongly recommend checking out the Chemistry range and if you're in Pune, Nashik or Goa a visit to Malaka is an absolute must.
