It was a Saturday evening and time for me to meditate by eating some good food. This time I was confused between Effingut (my favorites) and Kargo. Had read a lot about Kargo and decided to check it out. So a new place and some new experiences, and I was all excited and looking forward.
We reached the place by around 7.15 pm and we managed to get a good seat. Good that we came in early since we saw the crowd come in and if we would have come in later, we may have had to wait. Saturday evening also witnessed some awesome rains outside and waiting would have been getting drenched.
As we sat on the table, I noticed the lovely retro and fusion interiors and loved the fact that it was not too cluttered and had space to move around. In fact Kargo has a good seating capacity.
We started off with some cocktails which included Mojito and Lemon Caprioska. Loved them both and the refreshing flavor. We had also asked for a repeat but looked like the crowd had started coming and our order was forgotten midst the chaos. So we cancelled the repeat and drank plain water.
Our starters consisted of some freshly baked garlic bread topped with assorted veggies in a yummy pasta sauce. We also had a non-veggie format of the bread topped with some balchao prawns and it was just too finger-licking. The portions were also good and filling.
We also tried the Kargo special salad which had some fresh vegetables, croutons and some goat cheese as well and was simple yet delicious.
We next went on to ordering our so called mains since we were already stuffed with the starter. I saw someone order the naanzas and decided it’s a must try so we went on to ordering the veggie topped naanza and being a die-hard chicken curry fan, I ordered the kargo special chicken masala which was served with some soft naan. The portions again was great and it is suitable to be shared by four people.
With no space left for desserts, we decided to come some other day for desserts and more starters.
Overall the place is great in terms of food, ambience and on the cost it is a bit more fair priced that Effingut.
