A Liar's Guide to the Dreams..

In the dead of the night, the dreams come in one by one. They cling to you with soft acceptance, and they know it all..

These are the dreams which leave a note of remembrance. They cling to our tongues like a bittersweet delight.

They feel familiar, though their flavour melts in the mouth... and taste distinctly unusual.

Hush... now...

I went there with a friend to try out the fare of Hushh at City Centre. We entered and I was struck by the simple decor, with a lot of rot Iron settings and tables with beautiful balsamic vinegar and olive oil Jars that quite caught my attention. I ordered a simple fare... The attendants were nice and knew what they were talking about. The Tomato Basil Soup came first, with little crostinis, followed by Potato Gnochhi in Spinach Sauce. I was enamoured with the soup and the succulent gnochhi. Its quite hard to prepare a good gnochhi, as I have had bad experience with them in the past. Most of the times, Indian chefs fail to understand what EXACTLY gnochhi is... but this particular person was fantastic. Following that came a pizza, I ordered the Pizza Con Frutti De Mare , since I have heard of their fine crust and hand-tossed quality. My calamari pizza contained fantastic seafood, and I believe its the best I have had... and I have had that at other places like Fire-n-Ice and ITC. The pizza was crispy at the base, and scrummy in the centre, the cheese not too overpowering, rather, complimenting the essence of prawns and squid. I also tried out the Chicken and Mushroom Risotto, which was perhaps a bit of a disappointment, for it tasted slightly like rice boiled in mushroom soup and chunks of chicken thrown in. But the Parmesan cheese helped and so did the basil, and overall it tasted quite good. My friend had no such issues, she consumed it with gusto. I tried out the dessert, which was Tiramisu, and Kahlua Mousse.... It was simply heaven. Thank you attendant for your exceptional taste.

The bill came around a thousand for two. Probably Rs.1065 or something like that. I strongly recommend this place because of its laid-back ambiance and quality food.

Restaurant wise on a scale of 10 it gets an 8.

Food Wise - 8.5

Service - 8.

Quite a refined foodie you are for sure. But 1000 for 2 is a tad too very expensive. taai naaa ??????

Ditto Suki. Or convince parents to drive out to Salt Lake. 1065 for this meal isn't too bad because I see you'd ordered besh onek kichu. Please take photos next time, it'd be nice to see what I'm drooling over instead of imaging it. =)
