KODE – The Freestyle Kitchen & Bar
A sense of superior style and speech comes when you relate the Kalra brand to a restaurant. With interior elements such as rustics, earthy, greys and blacks being the identity of Massive restaurants it showcases their dominance.
Kode is the newest addition to Massive restaurants folio, the one that speaks so boldly about Freestyle cuisine, one where there is an exceptional blend of far cuisine making few brilliant to a couple of just about average dishes.
KODE does fulfill the promise it makes. Passionately expanding the horizon of cuisines and creating a beautiful marriage of flavors.
Here is what we tried at Kode and our take in the same.
We started our meal with Salty Togarashi flavored (Japanese spice mix) Olives with a Fraiche made of Chives infused cream which set us in the mood for the meal ahead. While we liked this, we didn’t enjoy the Sea Salt Butter Glazed Edamame as it just made our palate too sharp on the salt level from the previous dish.
We loved how an ingredient that characteristically is not liked by people was smartly used to make this dish. The crispy Kale mixed with Pine nuts, Parmesan and Pomegranate was a great combination of crunch, bite and moisture.
A classic Italian Carpaccio replicated in Avacado served with fried crispy spinach, and salty soy, a simple composition of cream, crisp, and saltiness that will impress you.
The tempura fried Corn Curd served along with Siracha this dish was a bit odd for us. The fried cubes didn’t do the justice and siracha alone couldn’t save it.
A pure Italian love of Potato Gnocchi given a Thai makeover, with chili and sage butter tossed Gnocchi comes along a roasted pumpkin curry with coconut base with a hint of sweetness. Both parts of this dish were brilliant on standalone levels, but we didn’t like their tuning together.
The entire meal was washed down with drinks that came in fancy nests, faux and beautiful glasses. Loved their Whisky Sour and Berry infused Red Wine.
Desserts were a beautiful affair with a deconstructed Black forest that came with tiny blocks of chocolate mousse dusted with cocoa served with frozen molecules of ice cream and Marasca cherries. The Tiramisu was uber scrumptious with four variations of cocoa actively supporting each other. It was wiped clean till the last bite we could take.
Few dishes didn’t impress us while the others blew us off, that’s about us. Do visit for yourself and know how good is KODE for you.
