Does it happen to you too?
That you are just passing by and randomly spot a café or a restaurant that makes you want to step inside or visit? ‘Coz it happens to us often. We are en route to somewhere and suddenly another place catches our attention. So we either step out and check it out or we note it down and come back to it.
That’s what happened again the other morning when we were in Bandra and passed by the famous Janta wali gully
A pista green board with Melting Morsels etched on it in golden caught our eyes. It was a small dessert parlour. We immediately googled it and fount that it served desserts, freak shakes, coffee and a few small meals. Intrigued, we decided that this was worth a visit, and soon!
Two days later, we are here! A cute patisserie, done up in pastel hues and floral prints. Desserts are obviously the main focus, as you can see from the display counter and if that does not give it away (duh!) then look at the picture frames on the wall or the cookie jars behind or the display of cupcakes! If you look closely, you will also find a few puffs and quiches, sandwiches and pasta in small transparent cups. There is not much room for seating more than 5-6 people inside and 4-5 people outside.
Melting Morsels is made with love and the desserts and food here are made with equal passion! The kitchen lies upstairs and the food is prepared fresh. This place is a month old and already has a fan following in the area for their pastries and cakes, as is obvious by the cards and sticky notes full of praises & appreciation decorating the walls and from repeat customers that kept dropping by!
Considering it was a hot afternoon, we skipped the hot coffee options and went in for the freak shake rather and got a Mixed Berry Cheese Cake Freak Shake. Strawberries, cranberries and whipped cream. An incredibly delicious combination, strawberries added a little sweetness to the tangy cranberry. Loaded with whipped cream and sprinkles, this is amazing! The jar size is small though but at ₹100 for this goodness, you won’t complain. Worth every last penny!
As we sipped our freak shake, a small cup of spaghetti in red sauce caught our attention. Tempted, we called for Spaghetti with Minced Vegetable Balls – one from their meals in a cup section! Vegetable balls were not available so we were given the option of broccoli and mushrooms and we went ahead with that. The perfectly spiced tomato based sauce made this an incredible option! Delicioso!
We wanted to try Biryani in a cup but it was not available because of multiple orders in the morning. Definitely going back for that one.
Oreo Cupcake ended the short meal on a high. The cream on top was to die for. Chocolate based base with cream and oreo crumble on top, this was just amazing!
Melting Morsels is a place you should bookmark for your crazy sweet tooth cravings. The variety is huge and literally everything looks so good that you are half satisfied just by looking at it!
