Place: Guilt Trip
Location: Road No. 9, Banjara Hills
Meal: Dinner (with better half)
We wanted to drop into The Gallery Cafe again, but given that those guys were having an off day because of some power issues, we came down to Guilt Trip. While we’ve had desserts here on a couple of occasions before, never sat in for dinner. We settled down in a corner of their brightly lit lower floor lounge. The seating arrangements could have been more comfortable, but I guess they are fine for a small place like this one.
We ordered for a Margarita pizza, Pomodoro Pasta, and a Devils Own.
The drink was served first, and this tasted alright. While the sugar was alright, I thought there was more coffee than required.
An oval-shaped pizza was served soon, and it looked yum. On taste front, while the crust was good, there were more than a couple of burnt edges. There could have added more cheese as well.
The Pasta turned out to be the best dish of the night. It was creamy enough, and had perfect seasoning.
To end the meal, we ordered for a Chocolate Mousse.
Surprisingly, this had more white chocolate than dark chocolate (I’ve never come across a white chocolate mousse before). It tasted alright but it definitely didn’t meet my expectations. In fact, while people swear on this place for their desserts, I’ve never experienced nirvana on any of their stuff. Either my expectations are too high or other people’s tastes are very different from mine.
Overall, a passable meal. With friendly service and decent ambiance, Guilt Trip should be a good hang out joint for teenagers and college folk. Maybe I’ve grown too old to relish such atmosphere.
