So, my nano flew from usa to paki land last week and she was headed to her friend's after dropping me to Verdance Cafe's Iftar food tasting. To my delight, they called her inside. This was her first food tasting and she was awfully excited. Whilst gangs of friends, bloggers and photographers walked in, I sat on a table with my nano and we critiqued the food together.
The ambiance was quite welcoming, and nano and I were served a lime slushie drink for starters. They also had rooh afza but nano stuck to her happy lemon drink and gulped it down in seconds. It seemed like the perfect drink to open a roza with, with the right amount of everything. As the food was being kept over the flame, we got freshly baked muffin bread, both sweet and plain to warmup our tastebuds for the food workout.
As I took photos of some of the iftar time dishes, my grandmother filled her plate with all the things she wanted to give an opinion on. When she spotted Chinese, her weakness, she quietly sat and had a plate or two of it. With the numerous options that were available for Iftar, I adored the fact that the menu was a mix of traditions and taste. From samosas and rolls to steak pieces and chicken fillets, from Chinese to apple salads and white sauce pasta, Nano and I adored everything. Even though we had their scrumptious dessert items, Nano decided to grab a cake slice from their bakery display downstairs for her cravings at home.
Good food, great company, a welcoming staff- I felt like it was my first fast of Ramadan time already. Thank you for making my nano's day, @verdancecafe .
