Adding more to coffee

The first word that strikes your mind if you hear ‘Cocoa House’ is undoubtedly coffee. But what if it serves continental, Lebanese and Chinese food? Cocoa House, located in D-block market Vasant Vihar is not just about coffee but it is one food destination offering international cuisines, desserts, mocktails and cocktails.

Brightly coloured walls and chairs give an attractive look as soon you enter the restaurant. We were first served a refreshing mocktail, Colacolada . Made from coconut milk and fresh pineapple juice, the sweet taste of the drink soothes taste buds. Giving company to the drink were corn flitters and garlic bread with American corn.

Both the dishes had somewhat similar taste, with corn and cheese being the main ingredients but were tasty nonetheless. Served with hot garlic sauce, the corn flitters melted in the mouth whereas garlic bread was more like bite-sized pizzas.

Since the restaurants boast of international delicacies, we went for a Mediterranean dish called Middle Eastern Falafel. The falafel generally resembles Hara bhara kebab but the one served at Cocoa House had a totally different taste. Very finely ground Kabuli Chana, Chane ki daal was mixed in minimal spices and served with pita bread and hummus. It was simple but delicious.

It was time to try our luck with non-vegetarian food. Continental golden fried prawns and grilled flying chicken were finger licking and tasted out-of-this-world when served with hot barbeque sauce. The roasted flying chicken marinated in five spices was truly divine. It was the sauce that gave the ultimate flavour to the roasted chicken.

Grilled vegetables like broccoli and baby corn in the plate added to the dish. The chefs played with the magic of sauce once again with porch fish. Fish soaked in spicy Chinese sauce, topped with olives and garlic was served with steamed rice. The spices were well balanced and the fish was juicy.

Cocoa House has few desserts like volcano cake, apple pie, black forest cake and minty fig ice cream.

The restaurant also serves pizzas, sandwiches and pastas. Besides the normal white and arrabiata used in pastas, the cocoa house has variety to go for like Bolognaise and Carbonara sauce. It also has an in-house bakery that provides freshly baked cakes, cookies, brownies and breads.
