Broken bridge cafe restaurant in Chennai
the Broken Bridge Cafe curated a special afternoon tea menu, keeping in mind office workers looking to grab a quick bite or diners looking to have a lazy evening. The menu offers Indian and continental dishes – from classic sliders and chicken wings to pizzas, samosas and bajjis! Along with a variety of coffees and teas, they also have a limited mocktail menu, which includes their signature French buttermilk-pressed Rasam.
With the mercurial temperature around us, we skip the usual cappuccino for a chilled Imlita, inspired by tamarind chutney from the local pani puri stand. A mixture of luscious tamarind sauce and lemon juice makes the perfect cooler, which can also be enjoyed by scooping the mixture into the martini glass. If you are looking to experiment, Paan Lassi is also an interesting option. The chicken and goat cheese samosas, which arrived first at our table, proved to be the perfect evening snack, served with a tamarind chutney. It’s a creamy conical mix of ground chicken, cheese, and sweet potatoes, and it’s pretty light on the stomach. The Tambhram Sliders, the Tamil version of the classic came next; with a vegetarian patty (mashed potatoes and onions) filled with tomatoes and lettuce between two buns, and combined with a curry leaf mayonnaise — it immediately won over our palate.
Craving the classic chilli fritters, we couldn’t help but look forward to the Molaga Bajjis stuffed with Mozzarella cheese. The cheesy fried chiles are served with a peanut butter mayonnaise, which cuts the spice, but also imparts a nutty flavor that we relish in relish. Pizzas are also on the menu and the Crispy Thin Crust Chicken Tikka Pizza is just the desi touch we need. With a familiar Chicken Makhani sauce for the base, it’s served with a generous topping of spicy chicken tikka cubes. While we were really stuffed, we couldn’t resist a few spoonfuls of the decadent Filter Coffee and Bailey’s Tiramisu, a cafe’s signature dessert.
