Candies, Bland Chicken Biryani, sour salads!
Candies is probably the best restaurant in Bandra where food is light on the tummy and the prices even more so on the wallet. The wide variety of food items here is complemented by a variety of desserts. On this documented trip, one of the many countless trips, we ordered for a Chicken Tikka Biryani and a plate of mixed salad. Salads here extremely healthy and are generally replenished quickly as most salad items are in demand here!
We took a mixture of corn, potato and chicken macaroni salad. Sadly, the macaroni salad was a bit sour and that kinda spoilt the taste of the entire salad. The biryani was just about alright as well. From the taste it was clear the pack of rice and chicken has been lying on the counter for a few hours. Stale bland biryani, was the way my friend aptly described it.
However, the only good experience on this trip was the Baked lemon cheese cake which was awesome! The Baked Cheese Cake was such a refreshing dessert. It wasn’t as heavy as the normal candies cheese cakes are usually. The texture smooth and the base was deliciously yummy unlike the soggy bases on some cheese cakes.
Overall disappointed though the baked cheese cake was a saving grace!
