Crossroads92 – Crossroad ok but 92 ? Oh yes ! The pin code of Borivali where this flagship restaurant started 3 years back and has reached out to thousands of Foodies and satisfied them.
Crossroads92 in FORT with the same Pin code .. Now that was a bit strange …. !
But the owners may be having their own reasons.
Newly opened restaurant hardly 3 weeks has really taken me by surprise.
Compact place 1300 sq ft 50 covers amazing music fully stocked bar and serves Italian , Continental and European . What more do you want ?
This place has this Rustic Woody look with a couple of walls having brick effect , some walls/pillars have brilliant handmade paintings done by the students of JJ School of Arts , a Cozy Corner or sitting.
Enough space between tables , not making it claustrophobic and the Autistics just perfect.
They have also a projection camera and i m sure in the near future one can view the best of events , and a Wi-Fi.
Brainchild Of Farah Tahir and Sachin Pable have taken all the efforts to get a perfect menu in place with prices which are unbelievable in 400001 (Fort) Trust Me .. check it out guys !!
Started with :
Watermelon Martini – picture perfect.
Red Wine Sangria – perfect Mix of chopped fruit , red wine and a bit of brandy.
Pina Colada – a bit sweet for me though i just had a sip but my friend who tasted it, said it was very good.
Chilli Martini – Man You guys have nailed this cocktail to perfection. Wow . That extra spicy chilli was just the correct way to go about. First it was the Green chilli and the second Martini came with the Red. Nicely presented , perfect combination of alcohol .. full marks to the bar captain. Believe me this was Spicy !!
Asian Chicken Pot – Slow cooked chicken stock full of taste , having that tangy/sweet flavor with soya and vegetables. Just perfect. It’s always going to be on my wishlist.
Thai Chilli Cheese Roll – A signature dish of Crossroads92 Borivali i was told – very nicely presented in a glass. Basically wonton cylinders with stuffed cheese ( oozing out the moment you take a bite) Thai flavour served with balsamic Mayo. Fully agree why it’s called a signature dish.
House Spiced Potato – nicely marinated and baked potatoes served with the house special sauce . Figured out it was a 5 spice mix sauce ( a Chinese sauce mix of Star anise,Cloves,Chinese Cinnemon, Sichuan pepper and fennel seeds)
Chef Ashish did full Justice to this dish. The tiny zucchini which were added gave that extra flavour .
Lemon Chilli Coconut Chicken – wow , this is a must order dish at this place , the chef has just nailed it.
Lemon grass infused Chicken ( tender , melts in the mouth) tossed in the chilli coconut sauce . when we say coconut sauce its usually a bit watery but somehow he managed to just get the sauce just perfect giving a perfect blend to the entire dish . Nice presentation as well.
Ghramoula Chicken – Chicken perfectly marinated with middle eastern spices and grilled (perfectly) served with Charmoula ( Charmoula or Chermoula is a marinade with a mixture of Herbs, oil, lemon juice,pickled lemon, garlic,cumin salt and may contain onions black pepper and saffron – used a lot in Moroccan , Libyan and Algerian cooking) and MAYO .
The roasted Cumin came as a surprise which showed the cleverness of the chef to get that added flavor to the dish.
Lasagne Chicken – since it was all oriental thought of trying an Italian dish .This again was so freshly made and just correct.
Layered pasta with mélange of veggies . Minced chicken , good stuffing , full of Italian flavors and herbs topped with Mozzarella , served with garlic bread which was again just about perfect.
Thai Curry with Steamed Rice – a very well balanced curry with the correct use of aromatic and kefir lime. Just that correct balance of the coconut milk and the spiciness. Nice quantity.
Chocolate Lava Cake : At this price its VFM . have uploaded the picture , which speaks for itself , presentation was just perfect . Had Chocó lava been a little bit warm it would have been a greater dish.
To Sum Up – V F M !!
Crossroads92 = FOOD MUSIC BAR
Do go for this place it’s a must try and trust me Crossroads92 is here to stay and rock and the next INN thing in Fort.
My rating for this place 4.5/5
