Amethyst Cafe

Amethyst is one of the few places in Chennai which I frequent during my initial days at Chennai (Of course only during the beginning of the month when I don't have to worry about spending the rest of the days with what is left in my account :P :P :P ). In the past 11 years, nothing has changed. Same old rustic place with enchanting garden space where one can talk for hours, service that can make a snail feel like Usain Bolt and even the menu. Yes there are quite a few additions to the menu. But I still see what I saw a decade ago.

A relaxed lunch before a hectic week is why I chose this place. Excellent food and surprisingly the service was pretty quick comparatively. Started off with freshly squeezed orange with no sugar. Loved it. Spicy cajun chicken was tender and well marinated. Pear and blue cheese salad with walnuts, my favourite here was delicious as usual. Blue cheese has an acquired taste. Salad was perfectly balanced with a light vinaigrette dressing.

Flame grilled chicken was delicious and very filling. Chicken marinated/rubbed with chilli flakes and pepper grilled to perfection and served with carrots and beans. I requested potato mash in the place of wedges. The cilantro cream along with the mash went well with the chicken. My friend had grilled chicken and jalapeno risotto and I was told that it was good too.

Creme caramel with a slice of poached pineapple and roasted almonds was the perfect ending to the meal. Silky smooth custard with slightly bitter caramel sauce was absolutely delicious. Hazelnut cappuccino another favourite of mine here was perfect in all aspects. Friend enjoyed her kashmiri khawa.

Paid 3K in total for all these. Definitely pricey but hey it's Amethyst :)
