VILLA SHANTI IN PONDICHERRY

Getting lost in the aroma and taste of the food served at this place, is our idea of a perfect afternoon at Pondicherry! The moment we entered the place, we knew we had made the right choice.



The entrance is a typical French Villa arch. A long passage leads you to the dining area. An outdoor and an indoor air conditioned one, for those who cannot tolerate the Pondy humidity. We opted for the outdoor seating just to bask in the "Pondicherry French" feeling.



There was adequate light, beautiful greenery and fuss free furniture. The dining area near the mini bar is well designed with intriguing paintings and artifacts.


Even though we reached here right before the kitchen closure, the staff were very polite and obliged to let us place our order. We were extremely hungry and just decided to order anything we could lay our eyes on the menu and wait with bread for company.



We ordered Mr. and Mrs. Smith Pasta with Pesto sauce and a similar one with White sauce.

The Pesto sauce was extremely fresh and intensely herby. Pesto sauce essentially consists of crushed garlic, basil and pine nuts blended in olive oil and parmesan cheese. One word - DELICIOUS! Definitely recommended.

For Dessert, we decided to have Orange and Almond Cake with Chocolate Mousse. It was the most well plated dessert we have ever seen. Now, this one is going to sweep you off your feet the moment you take a bite. The Orange and Almond Cake was crumbly but baked to perfection with the right amount of robust zesty flavor. Chocolate Mousse was cold proved to be the perfect partner to the cake. Simply amazing!
