Usually, I love to hang out with friends to gossip over a cup of coffee or a mug of beer, but it was one of those days when I wanted some peace of mind. So I went with my friend to ISKCON temple.
That put me in a calm mood for sure and after that I wanted to have a meal that wouldn’t weigh me down with calories but tastes yum. I had read so many reviews (rave) of Getafix and decided to visit this quaint little café.
Up a few stairs, Getafix welcomes you with a very warm vibe – cute little wooden chairs, cushions with cute (too much cute happening here!) lines like ‘Joey doesn’t share food!’, a small library and good wifi! Not to forget the Asterix comic books strewn casually on every table. Loved reading them as a kid and now you also know where the name ‘Getafix’ came from! For the uninitiated, just grab a copy when you visit and get the connection!
Getafix is based on the premise that eating out doesn’t mean you have to fill yourself with ‘cheese and regret’. You can have your pizza but it won’t be heavy on your system. Enjoying your dessert doesn’t mean you have to spend sleepless nights worrying about the calories! Love it already? Keep reading…
I loved the menu – so bright and cheery. The menu has juices, salads, smoothies, burgers, pasta, pizza, bowl meals and desserts and all looking super healthy and super tasty.
My friend and I shared the Basil pesto pasta and the signature Japanese Soba Noodle bowl. For drinks, we ordered the Odd One Out smoothie and the Happiness Fix juice.
So this whole wheat hand-rolled pasta served in fresh, homemade basil pesto sauce was as good as what a fine Italian restaurant can serve. The freshness can be felt as soon as you have your first bite and the first word I uttered was ‘Woaaw’!
For me, the Japanese Soba Noodles were going to be a completely new thing! Going by their menu, I was prepared for the flavours of coconut milk and peanut sauce but Soba? So I googled and found out that Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour and have a correspondingly strong, nutty flavour. Buckwheat flour is heart healthy — or protective against heart disease — and rich in phytonutrients. Pure buckwheat soba is stronger in flavour and really delicious, and of course, gluten-free! And all these facts read from internet became reality when served in bowl here! A perfect 10 for this new one from us.
This smooth-as-velvet smoothie was made from red apple, raspberries and blueberries. It was blended with frozen yoghurt that was made in–house. For those who love the berry blast, this is a perfect one!
The Happiness fix is such a pretty drink – made from red apple, mango, pineapple and basil. Tastes as yummy as it looks, it can actually make you delightfully happy!
Though the dessert looked really gorgeous, I was too full to try anything now! The breakfast menu was also looking very promising and that is real indulgence I am looking forward to. I’ll be going back for that scrumptious meal very very soon! :)
I had such a good time, just sitting there, enjoying the food and the conversations. It was almost like a mental vacation after a long day.
