The Capital gets its hippy groove with a spunk at Cafe Torque
Indeed the Capital gets its hippy groove with a pinch of spunk with this new space. Café Torque has been designed to encapsulate the nostalgia of riders by including various elements along the lines of grungy garage interiors, with super-bikes for sale on display, a World map made of nuts & bolts adorning a prominent wall, bannisters propped with chains, guitars made of heavy metal etc.
TIPPLE AND THE FOOD
The bartender is every ready to whip up mocktails or pour you a glass of whatever you fancy (liquor license is awaited). An inventive beverage list means you won’t be let down. I loved my ‘Go Green’ a refreshing mix of Cucumber, Green Apple, Parsley and lime as well as the 'Paan Asian Mojito'.
For starters along with your tipple.
I would recommend quirky, satisfying snacks to nibble which includes ‘Jerk spiced chicken wings’, ‘Peri Peri fish skewers, ‘Turkish Roast chicken’ , ‘or a ‘Mezze platter’ which is an assortment of goodies for the vegetarians. For those in the mood for something more substantial I would suggest the ‘4 Stroke Mezze’ is the sort of monster dish that’s good enough for two. There are even pastas, sandwiches and Burgers on the menu. When all’s done and accounted for, there are the desserts crafted for the truly indulgent. To end on a sweet note, go for the ‘Apple rings’ with vanilla ice-cream. I must add that consultant Chef Arun Chanda has surely done a great job!
ALL IN ALL
The experience at the cafe is a combination of its bold interiors and refreshing themes along with all the unique interactivity built in. The restaurant scores tops on its unique concept and is a joy to discover for jaded young crowd and is definitely value for money.
