Meal at a deal
What's attractive at Canopy on Greenways Road is the pocket-friendly pricing
FOR THE past two days, I have been obsessed with the word `mediocrity.' And it is at Canopy (ph: 52067225) in the Government Music College complex on Greenways Road that my obsession with the word began. Formica tabletops, plastic glasses and tablemats, melamine plates and stark interiors spell `utilitarian' loudly. The fledgling restaurant has an ambitious menu of pizzas, burgers, milkshakes, and Chinese and North Indian dishes.
Let me tell you at the beginning itself the most attractive aspect of Canopy is its pricing very affordable. A pomegranate juice at Rs.15! That was so unbelievable that I re-read the line, this time carefully.
When the juice arrived I understood the economics of it. The juice tasted exactly worth the price; nothing more, nothing less. The same theme played out through the dinner.
Chicken tikka pizza (Rs. 55), a medium one, nearly scorched my tastebuds.
They functioned for the rest of the meal only because I grabbed the juice at the nick of time.
The chicken burger (Rs. 38) was average.
The pick of the lot was crumb fried chicken (Rs. 55). The moist slivers of deep fried meat rose above the middle line, no doubt.
The Indian menu
The Indian part of the meal, paneer kathi rolls (Rs. 30), dhal butter fry (Rs. 24) and butter chicken (Rs. 50) can be summed up as ordinary.
The only dish that fell below the line is palak paneer (Rs. 40).
Finally, there were only three flavours of ice cream for dessert. And soon, it was time to leave.
