Incognito Restaurant at Baner| A Review

Truly the Best Food I have eaten in a while.

A couple of weeks ago I did a video shoot for series of #MobileFoodPhotography and the co-owner gave some valuable inputs on how should I describe the food served at Incognito.

When he realised that I have not had food at the other outlet in Phoenix Market City, he profusely welcomed me and my family to dine there as soon as possible.

At the first opportunity I took up on his offer and we went for a happy visit.

Since the place is newly set-up, the crowd is less, but it doesn’t take away from the beauty and the detailing to decor which has gone into the place.

It is a well-lit place with some quirky artefacts displayed in various nooks and corners. I loved these quirky stuff.

I was also very excited to try out the food as someone very recently told me that ‘Incognito serves some of the best food in the city.’ And the person I refer to is in Pune food business. So I had quite high expectation of the place.

And I must admit, I wasn’t disappointed.

Go-to dish for my kids these days is Pasta in white sauce as it is least spicy and full-cheesy. So kids settled for 2 servings of that. And it really was good.

We chose Marinated Mushrooms, Stuffed Jumbo Olives and Roasted Eggplants in the AntiPasti Platter served with Garlic Croutes. The roasted eggplant and croutes were among the best I have ever eaten. Really a must try for all.

After helping kids finish off the second serving of pasta and gorging on antipasti, there was  very little space left. :)

Just for that tiny corner of space in our stomach (sigh!) we ordered Green House Melt Burger which is a mildly spiced veg patty served on toasted bun with shredded iceberg, onions, dill pickle, tomato and cheese, accompanied with crispy fries and greens. And it was truly food-gasmic. I never knew burger could be this good. I really would like to order this once more.

We rounded off the meal with Chocolate Dream – a rich chocolate gateaux filled with blueberry and passion fruit chocolate truffle. This was a tad disappointing for me.

Even for my video I had shot a selection of dessert and overall I found them a bit too sweet and bit too basic for my taste. When compared to all other dishes wonderfully turned out and served, the desserts seem pretty commonplace.

But a good meal, great ambiance and superb service.

I am craving to go back to this place again, more so because it is very close to my place and I don’t have to trudge all the way to Phoenix Mall to enjoy a good meal.

I hope more F & B brands take their cue from Mallaka Spice and Incognito and open good restaurants in Western corridor of the city. It would be very welcome.
