Décor: In simple words, I would like to call this place a modern noir eatery joint. As I walked into the narrow entrance, I was quite amazed with the ceiling décor; the entire stretch had countless bulbs flocked together and lit, illuminating the whole space, and triggering thoughts of contemporary gastronomy setups. The interior had muted tones of lemon yellow blended with complimenting hues of dull grays. The floor had striped monochrome patterns on a shiny backdrop that went very well with the pristine white Victorian chairs and black tables. I have always liked eating on black tables; it somehow brings out the colour of the food in vibrant ways.
Food: Zamozza flaunts a mixed-bag menu comprising of world cuisine because today’s well travelled patron is not restricted to conventional choices in his/her preference of cuisines or experience. Their menu has some classic favourites and exotic dishes that are big on aroma, flavour and spices; be it Turkish, Thai, Italian, Swiss, Mexican, Indian or more, I tried quite a few and I would love to recommend this place to all food lovers in the city!
I started with a couple of refreshing mocktails, but my favourites were the Malabar Cooler (a bracing concoction of coconut water, mint leaves and lime), and the Purple Haze (a cold and revitalizing drink comprising of pineapple, lime, virgin blue Curacao and grenadine). For starters, I loved their prawns in sweet chili sauce; it was cooked beautifully and had the right amount of crisp and moist essences. The Thai crispy vegetables were also very mouth-watering.
Moving on to the main course, I enjoyed eating the wild mushroom risotto, grain mustard marinated Snape Pollo chicken breast with Balsamic veggies and Tuscan style potatoes, and Khao Suey. This particular dish, Khao Suey, absolutely stole my heart; cooked in coconut milk curry and served with a platter of fried onions, sautéed garlic, chopped mint leaves and crushed peanuts, this was certainly my favourite! I savoured this delicious curry along with spring onions and noodles.
Finally, arrived the desserts; a small serving of tiramisu, some crispy waffles with dollops of ice-cream and freshly made, warm apple toffees. The last one was a first for me; with a tough caramel coating on the outside, as you bite into it, you will be taken by surprise with the presence of a soft, fresh and sweet cube of apple. I had it with vanilla ice-cream. So all you foodies out there, make your next plan to Zamozza at 52, Janpath, New Delhi.
