Doesn’t the term ” The Mystery Box ” ring a bell? Well! yes It does have some connection to the Masterchef version yet is different in a way. You will unravell this mystery as you read on. Located in the lane opposite Mini Punjab is this newly opened Patisserie ” The Mystery Box” https://twitter.com/themysterybox, I happened to visit with my daughter Zenia Irani aka Brandedbawi brandedbawi.com. This mystery box was a sweet and delightful journey for both of us and there is lots more in store for you guys.
We were greeted by both the partners who own this lovely place, Ajay Agrawal and Chef Shahzad Variava.
Chef Shahzad is known for Masterchef India (Season 2) a self made man who is passionate about his desserts and works 7 days a week. Ajay Agrawal on the other hand is the marketing person who is witty and such a fun person to chat with. The place is small yet so neat and has a sit down too.
The music playing was pleasant and we started sipping on our iced tea and cranberry Mojito ( INR 80/each). I couldn’t help myself admiring the exquisite pastries and chocolate counter. It was lined with assorted yumminess is all shapes, sizes and had my eyes pop with delight.
The chicken croissant ( INR 80/) was huge and laden with smoked masala chicken till the last bite. It was flaky and well spiced and went so well with Mojito. A meal deal steal at INR 160/-
We also had the chicken Dynamite ( INR 190/) It was huge, very huge with cheese and chicken in freshly baked brown bread roll. I say two persons can share it easily hence it gets my vote of value for money.
By now I could not control myself, I had to get up and take pictures of the desserts and yes, I did just that.
Chef Shahzad explained to us each dessert and he suggested we try the Layered Nutella and Roasted Hazelnut Slice. We all have had desserts but this one was out of the world. The smoothness and crunch with the awesome taste of Nutella was just simply superb. I recommend this even if you are not a dessert person.
The Mystery Box Has alot to offer everyone. On the Menu there are Beverages, scrumptious sandwiches, muffins, tarts, cupcakes, chocolates, cakes to order in 4 hours and a variety of specially crafted desserts by Chef Shahzad himself.
Some of the items I found interesting on the shelves and definitely worth trying are the Glass Jar desserts and No bake cheesecake that can be had with blueberry or strawberry topping.
The Final verdict – Some really amazing desserts you must have never looked at or tasted ever before for a price that wont pinch your pocket. So come lets open this Mystery Box and not worry about those calories. You need to pamper your sweet tooth occasionally. I also got a sneak peak at their adorable Valentine’s Day chocolate box that comes with the prettiest assorted chocolates.
