A Mangiical Menu To Beat The Heat @ CAFE MANGII

Monday evenings are pretty quite around the city, but a few of us lucky bloggers, got invited to try out the new menu launch at Cafe Mangii. I had the opportunity to taste almost everything on the menu. And when I say everything it is just that, I really need to watch myself here, as the small size bits are too tempting to stop at just one! <wink>

We were served chilled chardonnay accompanied by a really awesome cooler in the shot glasses. The Mango mint cooler was a breath of fresh air, and delicious…it is just what the doctor ordered especially with the summer heat!

To start was Amuse BoucheI am a sucker for cheese, I just couldn’t resist and had to stop myself to save space for the rest of the dishes that were to be served through the night. The platter Plateau De Fromage had Brie, Emmental, Cheddar, Chevre, Walnuts, Gala Grapes, Crostini & Grissini. We were also served Mini Watermelon Cups – that had Feta Fondue, Arugula, Pine Nuts & Aged Balsamic Reduction. This was just perfect to get started.

Aperitif –  a refresher was shot of Guava & Mint Granita, I got greedy and had about 3 of these.

Soup of the DayI have to admit of all the items served, that night off the menu, the Potage Parmentier, a very creamy leek & potato soup with spinach crispi’s, it was a just what the doctor ordered! The creamy texture and the flavors in the soup were just comforting, rich-tasting that it just melts-in-your-mouth. If I could have I would have had this as a meal on its own.

Dessert – I was already stuffed and had no space left to try out the dessert, besides I do not have a sweet tooth. We got served Philadelphia Baked Cheese Cake with Blueberry Compote, I really love this one. There was also Velvet Brick Brownie served with Vanilla Ice-cream.

Overall, a lovely evening, over some light banter. A tiny celebration to beat the Blues. I would definitely recommend trying the new menu. To all the Vegetarians out there, this is a delightful menu. Buon Appetito!

I would describe myself as someone who loves to eat good food and travel, am polished and classy, yet have that little girl spirit in me and my fashion sense is chic which has to be accompanied with bold statement pieces and fresh accessories. I love to get pampered, totally spoil myself, and why not? xoxo Deena Pinto #skinnygirldiairez
