Tryst Cafe

Tryst cafe used to be my to go place for éclairs cravings in the past. They used to source all the breads/bakery/dessert items from Bakers Street, Puduchery. After quiet a long gap, decided to give them a visit as I was craving for some éclairs. We went a little early for dinner and thought why not finish off the dinner too :P Sharing its space with the Nilgiris, this place is hard to miss. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. Scared of the mosquitoes I chose to dine inside. Indoor is quiet spacious and brightly lit. The cute little souvenir on the display are fun to look at. The other end of the hall has this mouthwatering display of breads, desserts and other baked goodies. 

 Kiddo was not in a mood for pizza so gave it a skip (sobs). Started off with mozzarella sticks served with marinara sauce. The sticks were yummilicious with mild coating of bread crumbs and the cheese oozing out with every bite. They went well with the spicy n tangy marinara dip. The coffee milk shake was good but a little bit thin. Kid had the chicken sandwich from the display and I ordered a ceasars salad. Sandwich was so so. It was pretty huge and the bread was way too hard. More like that of a rusk. But kid liked it. So no complaints. Ceasars salad was missing bread croutons (the sole reason I ordered this one). I called one of their staffs and asked for it and he had no clue what I was asking. He went into the kitchen and said the croutons are over ??!!! The salad was good with minimal dressing the way I like and it was fresh. Though the chicken appeared to be burnt, it didn't taste like that.

We had a black forest cake and a caramel mousse there. The caramel mousse below average. The chocolate mousse was a bit dense and the caramel had nothing to do with the name. There was no caramel flavour and it was too thick and sticky. The black forest cake was a tad bit dry but tasted good. The éclairs and lemon tart were packed home. I had high expectations on the éclairs but it was a disaster. One bite and I had to throw the rest away. It was nowhere close to the one we get in bakers street. Later I learnt that, they've stopped sourcing goodies from Bakers street. The lemon tart again was so so. Nothing to rave about.

All these set me back by 1200 bucks. It may look cheap, but given my experience I don't think it's value for money. Service was very slow.
