‘One Mile’ away from ‘golden’ food?! Nah…not anymore. Just when I was longing to savor something that I could rate as scrumptious, Invite to Indigo at One Golden Mile came gift-wrapped my way. To review the newly revamped menu at Indigo, I sat up gazing at the variety and options overlooking the picturesque landscape. At a distance There were objects d’art displayed for the art connoisseurs, the abstract helped disentangle my muddled mind. The wide sprawling lawns, wooden chairs & tables, fine cutlery lend a relaxed yet sophisticated feel to the restaurant that is about more than just good food. It’s a place you could indulge in conversation under the winter sun or balmy evening.
From the soups and first course, I decided to order a Caesar Salad, Sous Vide Chicken which had maple cured crispy bacon as topping. The salad was fresh, crunchy and derived its swagger from the dressing of olive oil, Parmesan, croutons and chicken chunks.
Even the Curly Cress, Aragula & Figs – crumbled feta, walnuts in Sherry Mustard dressing, is a great option if you like your salad uncomplicated. Great to kickstart a windy noon brunch.
If you want to keep it light and uncomplicated, you could go for sandwiches that they have a huge variety of to offer the bread mavens.
The best on the table was a Braised Pork Belly in Teriyaki glaze – scrumptious and tender. Go on Pork gastronomes.
Second course was one of my favorites. Red Pepper Risotto shaved Fennel, Asparagus with grilled palm hearts and mustard cress. It was just a perfect preparation. Though I’ve had better risottos at other places, this ones quite close to competing against ‘em all. (The palm hearts wasn’t quite something I liked in my risotto)
Filled Korean style Chicken with pickled eggplant, fondant sweet potatoes with soy ginger glaze definitely did win me over. Perfect accompaniments make this dapper dish stand out!
Each bite into the Succulent chicken will entice you to go for another one, impatiently.
The Desserts was an elaborate section yet again. Salivating through the extensive list of eggless, sugar free and regular varieties, I ended up tasting quite a lot.
The Salted Caramel Brûlée with banana ice cream, banana chips and Pecan crunch was pretty delicious – though salted caramel isn’t something I don’t fancy. But you just might fall in love with it.
The one I lost my heart and mind to was the Lemon Cheese Cake with Blood Orange Sorbet, Orange Marmalade and Raspberry Coulis. Absolute art! The orange sorbet melts in your mouth like fragile snow – the orange flavor gently fondles you, not overpowering the cheesecake at all. The Coulis made of puréed raspberry complimented the composite.
I’ve described my love for this desert, candidly enough.
Ending on a sweet note, Indigo also humbly boasts of a minion bakery, which is yet to get fully operational, but you could still pick up your favorite breads, croissants or delicious bakes. Head on for a lunch to remember or a date to drive you a mile deep into love.
