Tuscana by Willi, Chamiers Road - A Veg Diet!!








Having a pure vegetarian meal sans anything non-veg, is one of the most difficult things for me to do. I was stuck on one occasion, where my companion was an unalloyed vegetarian. So there I was dinning in a proper non-veg Italian restaurant with a veggie. This put me in a situation that was actually  good in a way. We both got the opportunity to taste all the dishes which we ordered. So I made up my mind and heart and also stomach with great difficulty.

We sat down in a nice cozy spot in the first floor of the restaurant. I took a long look at the menu, since this was the first time I was going to have a full course veg-meal at Tuscana. It took me quite sometime to decide on the what to eat. I drew some inspirations from the non-veg dishes which I have had here before. After some careful thinking and looking we decided to go with Focaccia all' Algio e Cipolla for starters and Lasagne Verdi and Midi Pizza for mains. To quench our throats we chose to go with Pinnacaloda.

After placing our order we sat and waited for our dishes to arrive. The waiter served us with some bread. This was different from the salad served at the KNK restaurant. The bread was soft and crispy. It was a delight to have with the Hummus and Tomato sauce. This was followed by our starter Focaccia all' Algio e Cipolla. I am a big fan of Focaccia all' Polo, and this too did not disappoint me. The bread was soft and was drizzled with sauteed onion and garlic. We added a dash of the tomato sauce and this was even better. A very mild flavorful dish.

By the time we were done eating the starters, our mains arrived. The Pizza Midi was my favourite of the lot. It had all my favourite ingredients such as, tomato, zucchini, onions and the lovely black olives. The pizza was in its usual stunning taste. The Lasagne Verdi became a little cold by the time we indulged in it. The lasagne stood like a island in the sea of cheese and white sauce. It was rich, creamy and delicious. In between that, we were served with our thirst quenchers, the Pinnacaloda. The drink was perfect with the proper blend of ingredients with banana being the dominant ingredient. A fitting drink to our amazing meal. We were too stuffed to have the inviting desserts. So we skipped them.

The meal for two set us back by Rs1600/-. The meal might have been on the expensive side. But it was well worth the price. The Tuscana on KNK is slightly cheaper than this outlet.
