“Café Mestizo” A Mixed race of food being executed to the utmost quality and the innovation. A cute place at the new happening area in Baner i.e. Balewadi High Street run by celebrity chef Deepu. When you meet the man himself you would understand the passion and love for the food speaks through the taste and menu at this place. Ambiance is very vibrant and gives you a feel of café where you can sit and relax have long conversations and while doing that you get served with amazing food and beverages.
The menu travels in various continents and recipes, Specialty of the chef is the marriage between two different types of food or the twist in each dish take the food to next level. We started with “ Do the Cheetos” Pizza which is a very innovative concept here, this Pizza is targeting the children specifically but can also satisfy inner child within you J Pizza with thin & crispy crust with spices and cheese served with Cheetos on top. “Mac & Cheese Pizza” Again a pizza with a twist where Super amazing Pizza served with mac and cheese on top and with a generous cheese. Yummm…
“Bang Bang Prawns” This dish was actually a BANG on in terms of the flavors and cooking of the prawns and a surprise in the dip “Wasabi” 😛 a must try. “Thai Calamari” Calamari deep fried and cooked to perfection and served with amazing dip. “Kheema Paav” Loved the spice in the dish and the taste of the kheema, the spices used are core and amazingly flavorful. “Mestizo House Mafia Pasta” We tried vegan carbonara with fusilli, went very well the kick of the brandy was amazing and little hotness in dish was superb. “Carbonara” We had penne pasta in the dish this dish was a party for my taste buds, super creamy white sauce and the egg yolk gave the carbonara feel. Loved it.
Finally we moved to “Jalebi Freak Milk Shake” Which is a Diwali special and a must must try shake, where the Jalebi is crush in the shake with hint of Pan flavor and mazing cream on the top. I personally do not drink milk shakes but could not resist here. Also you can try superb Freak shakes available. Coolers/Chillers or Teas which went very well were “Mint and watermelon” Ice tea also “lemonade Blush”
Loved this place and the simplicity in the people and complexity is the food J.
