Sketch – The Cafe, Nungambakkam

Vegetable Filo Pastry

I had been to Sketch – The Cafe, Nungambakkam few weeks back (2nd October to be precise), after a standup comedy show in Music Academy. I was quite hungry and decided to visit Sketch around 9.50 PM. This was not my first visit, though during my first visit, I had only tried their Bruschettas and had loved those.

To my surprise, when I walked in, I noticed that they are in the process of closing down. So I checked with them if they can serve me, and to my surprise, they were quite eager to serve me ! (Not a very common thing when you happen to walk into a place when they’re obviously closing down for the day and that day being a public holiday).

I promptly ordered a Vegetable Filo Pastry, Spinach and Mushroom Pasta, and a Miracle Mix.

Vegatable Filo Pastry: I don’t understand why they’ve named this as a Pastry, since there was nothing “pastry”-ish about it. But hey, who am I kidding? I loved this ! Filled with Cheese, it was our Indian Samosa’s cousin, and went great with the dip they had served. The salad? No, no, no, I don’t touch the unhealthy food such as Salads 😛

Spinach and Mushroom Pasta: The usual cream sauce Pasta with spinach and mushroom. Liked it.

Miracle Mix: Well, occasionally I don’t mind indulging in unhealthy drinks such as this one, so that I can maintain the facade. This was one such instance, and I was rewarded with a drink that tasted not so unhealthy. For those who are confused, Miracle Mix tasted really well.

Service: One word: Wow. Despite the fact that I walked in late in the night, thus extended the time they’ve to stay back, I didn’t see a single frown on any of their faces (One cook, one steward and one cashier was all who was present there). They served me with a smile throughout and was quite friendly. They even took time to check with me on how the food was and collect my feedback. Impressed guys !


Taste: 4/5

VFM: 3.5/5 (I felt the pasta a bit too pricey)

Cost: 3.5/5

Ambiance: 4/5

Service: 4.5/5

Overall: 4/5

Do give them a try when you’re around Nungambakkam. They’re located just next to Taj Coromandel (Zomato has wrong directions for this place), inside the same compound as Indian Bank, UG Salai branch.

A stereotypical IT guy with a typical love for good food and good movies, not so typical love for books, rare love for the theatre arts and an abominable love for such lengthy sentences.

Naturally, with such varied interests, I come out with highly opinionated reviews ranging across categories and mindless blah blah blah.

I'm supposed to be living in Chennai, but I usually live in one of the social networks listed on my profile, since, hey that's so cool yo ;)
