When it comes to Friday night, it’s indeed the most awaited night of the week and thus has to be special. So last week we thought of exploring some new place and finally zeroed down to Café Mojo. In a mere 10 minutes walk from Chakala metro station or 4.5 kms from Andheri station, the café is an easy to find and one of the coolest places in Andheri East.
Located on the second floor of the Goldfinch hotel, the ambiance is warm, pleasant and English in many ways with a modern architect. On either of the sides are the sitting arrangements in retro style, the one you see in a cowboy movie with a build in beer dispenser on each table. At the center they have a huge sofa set and a live DJ at one corner and an open bar, fully stocked on the other end of the hall. They also have a rooftop section which greets the smokers with some amazing flavored Sheeshas.
Service is impeccable the one you won’t regret it. The bartenders were fun to talk and the highlight of the evening. Juggling, Tossing, Passing, etc. I was almost on the edge feeling, Please don’t drop!.
While I enjoyed some cold drinks and tangy orange mocktail, my friends were busy experimenting with their hard drinks. You tell the bartender what you want, how you want and it will be done, they kept praising the bar and their experimented-combination drinks the entire evening. I personally thanked the staff for being an amazing host.
By now I was extremely hungry, so we started with C3-Balls and Pesto-BBQ Mushroom, both were served hot in exquisite serving dishes. C3 balls came with a mayo dip on the side trust me when I say you can eat anything with it. The C3 were crunchy, cheesy and defiantly mouthful.
The mushrooms were very well roasted and the pesto sauce texture was finger licking in all sense.
Next was the Chicken Wings, well cooked, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Tossed and cooked in BBQ sauce made them the perfect chicken wing I ever had. The best part is the way they serve their dishes on a thin black marble-slab with a side dressing of mayo and lettuce.
Personally, I’m not a big fan of lamb, but I would still suggest everyone to try the Lamb Balls. When I tasted them it had an explosion of tastes in my mouth with all the spices, it had a perfect blend of sauce and lamb.
Next we tried the Peri peri chicken – Grilled boneless pieces marinated in peri peri sauce.
The chicken was coated in spicy sauces, which gave a strong spicy flavor taste in every bit.
Pizzas unlike normally were also served on a slab with pizza slices arranged opposite to each other and in 2 parallel lines. They use the Italian thin crust pizza base which was baked perfectly. The BBQ-chicken pizza had small pieces of smoky chicken with a whole lot of cheese with tangy flavor of BBQ sauce.
While the farm house pizza had a strong spicy taste, which was just how I or any spicy lover would prefer.
How can you go to the café and not dance? After 10 pm the café started playing some great Bollywood songs again the kind I like 😉 So our entire gang had then ganged up on the dance floor. The people at the café were quite nice and decent making the entire experience quite comfortable and enjoyable. Everyone danced together on some popular songs.
Sumptuous food, English ambience, mind-blowing drinks and happening songs, a deadly combo that one shouldn’t miss. Looks like I found a new place to hangout regularly. What about you guys? Do share your views in the comment stream below
