Review- Mirabella Bar & Kitchen

If you are bored of similar styled jaded lounges, then Mirabella is like a breathe of fresh air in the nightlife space. Designed with a rustic flair, this cosy and quaint European style cafe will transport you to Spain or Italy in a jiffy. Illuminated with twinkling fairy lights and romantic candles, this charming, hip resto-bar with non-traditional influences and global music is great for a date night or just a stylish evening out with friends.

To capture the place in its true element we decided to visit it on a Saturday evening; we flagged off the evening with a few house special cocktails such as the Drunk Maghai Paan, Chamomile Sunset, Melon Cooler and the Nutty Martini all of which we were flavorful, potent and presented in a quirky fashion. As accompaniments, we ordered the hummus with grilled vegetables and the rainbow bagel with cream cheese, both of which were highly recommended by the server. While we couldn’t stop raving about the delicious smoky hummus, the bagel didn’t pair well with our cocktails.

Moving on to the mains, we tried the tofu thai red curry served with steamed rice, mushroom barley risotto from the healthy menu (for the calorie conscious) and eggplant parmesan pizza, all of which were delicious and hit the right cord. We especially liked the concept of healthy menu, small plates and half plates which offers the diners to choose from low calorific bites and explore the extensive menu.

We rounded up the evening with the delicious raspberry rose chia pudding which was well balanced and a perfect ending to the well curated meal.
