Flipside cafe is a great little place to grab a light lunch and mellow out with a book. Following the creative trend of most at Khas Hauz Village this cafe is run by young entrepreneur Raavi Chou. With its red walls, quirky crooked lamps and murals it is a playful treat for more than just your taste buds.
- Strawberry Milkshake - I appreciated the fact that they use fresh strawberries but I would have liked to taste more of it. The taste was all milk for me, which I was not crazy about.
- Chicken Salad - Honey Mustard - Dressing was good. Chicken was a bit dry. But not bad overall as a side dish, I personally wouldn't make this the focus of my meal.
- Pesto Pizza - Was the special that day. The pizza itself was no gourmet pizza. Was a pretty standard "do it at home" type, but tasty in a wholesome sort of way. What was to die for was the pesto! Oh it was just dee-liscious! They take the time to make it in-house like everything else and it really paid off. Honestly, it is so good they would be fools not to jar and sell that stuff! I know I would stock up on a few every month. . . *hint* *hint* !
- Crepes - They have a decent list of both savoury crepes and sweet crepes. Both batters have buckwheat flour mixed in with regular flour.
- Bechamel Crepe w/ Mushrooms, & Caramelized Onions - With an addition of ham. The crepe tasted a little too earthy and hippie healthy for my liking! Also, what bothered me even more was that it was not as thin as it should have been, which resulted in it being a little too floppy and gloppy. (The picture is a little deceptive). The filling though was delicious. I would definitely make this one a regular staple if they could just address my crepe issue.
- Sweet Jam Crepe - We got half the crepe with Kiwi Jam and the other half with Apricot Jam. Unfortunately I have lost the picture! I really liked this crepe. Not only was the buckwheat to plain flour ratio perfect but it was not as thick and gloppy either. It was the perfect crepe. Again, two thumbs up for the fact that they make their own jam, the main reason I chose this one. However, the sugar levels are out of control. I love my sweet and the apricot one tasted delicious otherwise. Too bad I could not get past more than two sugar loaded bites.
- More Dessert - Clockwise from Left:
- Lemon Tart - I'm not that in to lemon tart so I may not be the best authority on this. But I had heard lots about their tarts so I tried it... things I do for you crumpets! It was pretty good. Crust was not bad. Filling was nice and tangy and.. well lemony...
- Mango Tart - I really liked this. Tart shell filled with custard, topped with fresh mango pieces. Was light, summery and delicious.
- Linzer Torte - Native to Austria from the town of Linz. Also one of the oldest known cakes in the world! This is a short crust pastry that is mixed with equal parts of almond and sometimes hazelnut, in this case it was the former. Filled with or in this one, topped with fruit preserve. A noble attempt. Quite decent.
- Chocolate Brownie - Was not a fan of the brownie as much. But who cares when you have sweet crepes and fruity tarts to satiate the sweet bug with!
I will definitely visit again when I have a serious craving of crepes... which I do feel coming on right about now.. Hmmm... I am also eager to try some of their specials. Particularly the Quiches, Chicken Schnitzel and Shepherds Pie. Mmmm love shepherds pie. But then again I'm not special, for who doesn't!
