We recently attended the preview dinner at Ellipsis, Colaba, for #WineWeek that is happening from 25th August to 31st August at 25 elite restaurants in the city.
We were given a set menu and each course was paired with an Indian and International wine. Nikhil Agarwal of All Things Nice and Chef Cheung played hosts and shared a lot of interesting stories behind the wines as well as the dishes.
We loved how the taste of wine differed when paired with the dishes. Amongst our favourites were the Zonin Prosecco Brut, Italy which was served to us before we started our meal and the Myra Shiraz, India (2010) which was served with the second course Peas, Prawns, Truffle, Parmesan, Pickles, Millet, Amaranth.
The food at Ellipsis was not so impressive but the dessert made up for all the inconsistency in the mains! Cinnamon Cookie, Cinnamon Ice Cream with dark chocolate. By the end of it, we were left craving for more of the delicious ice-cream!
