“There is no sincere love than the love of food” – George Bernard Shaw
When two people in love bring you up a unique boutique café and serve you delicious, mouthwatering and delectable food what more could you ask for? Oh yes, you can ask more as they have a designer boutique along with the café to cater to your fashion statements. Sounds interesting right!
My sincere love of food drives me to new food joints no sooner they open up in the city and this time it was “EAG : The Urban Café”. This beautiful café is a venture of the lovebirds Chaitali Agrawal and Nayan Agrawal who succeeded to pursue their passion despite all odds they faced. “Best things take time to come” says Chaitali who happens to be a fashion designer and Nayan having an immense love for food brought up this fusion café the kinds you mostly find off shores where you can shop and also gorge upon scrumptious food at the same place.
EAG, abbreviation of “Eat All Greens” is what they promise to serve, everything fresh and natural. All the sauces used are made by them, free of preservatives or added colors under the surveillance of Chaitali herself. The café has been built up and decorated from scratch by the couple themselves which includes the hand painted graffiti walls, glass paintings falling from the ceiling, colorful lanterns, hand written menu card and even most of the recipes being formulated by them.
Another major attraction about this café is the presence of a large number of books on the book shelf for you to pick one, games like chess, ludo and a playlist of your favorite songs running in the backdrop, which is enough to bring you here time and again alone or with your best bunch of friends.
They have a vast menu for you to select a perfect dish to satiate your hunger pangs and food cravings which include Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Sandwiches & burgers, Pizza & fries, Shakes & Mocktails, Desserts etc. You may find me missing something from the menu but that’s intentionally being mentioned later because it’s my indispensable, inseparable love my “Maggi”. A bowl of hot sizzling Masala Maggi along with Cheese garlic bread served on an inverted umbrella, a glass of Creamy caramel mocha or Masala chai and lots of gossip with your mains is highly recommended.
Ravioli and lasagna in your choice of sauces topped with exotic vegetables are sure to steal the heart of all the Italian lovers. The best part about the food here is, in a world full of preservatives and GMOs this cafe makes its own preservative free food. If you are one with a sweet tooth, too fond of chocolates then you may treat yourself with chocolate ravioli or chocolate fondue. For the insane, crazy love you share with cheese you would be delighted and overjoyed to find cheese burst pizza, cheese fondue, cheese corn balls, nachos with cheese and beans which is sure to make you cheesy and drooling over them.
If you are the one who loves to try new desserts then EAG signature or the fried ice cream is sure to be your pick. The Freak Shakes here are sure to make you shriek for more and the beauty of EAG. If you are the one who loves to try new desserts then EAG signature or the fried ice cream is sure to be your pick.
So if you haven’t visited this café yet then do pep up your evening plans for EAG because “People who love to eat are the best people”.
PS: They promise, affirm and reassure their hospitality with their personal presence and the poster on the wall which says “If your food isn’t perfect, please tell us, we will make it over.”
