Last week, my friend and I lunched at the Circle Cafe at Media City.
The small entrance leads to a beautifully furnished eatery. The minimalistic contemporary interiors feel very fresh and cosy.
The white colour scheme gives it a spacious look. They have al fresco seating overlooking the lake, making outdoor seating an ideal place to spend beautiful winter afternoons with friends.
We were impressed with the vast selection in the menu. The server informed us that all their food items are made with fresh and healthy ingredients.
The cafe was pretty busy with many families and friends enjoying a hearty luncheon.
We noticed the staff was very prompt, well informed and neat.
We asked for the drinks before the food arrived.
I ordered a banana and avocado smoothie while my health conscious friend went with kale lemonade.
We had picked Portuguese chicken and salmon teriyaki from the mains.
Our drinks were very filling and healthy. The avocado and banana smoothie is perfect on its own or with a light salad.
Contrary to me, my friend likes the zing of ginger. The kale juice gave her a perfect start to the lunch.
The food was very well plated and the portions were filling.
The Portuguese chicken is served with fries and the spicy peri-peri sauce, whereas the salmon teriyaki is presented on a bed of mashed potatoes along with broccoli and glazed with the teriyaki sauce.
We enjoyed both the dishes. They were cooked with well-balanced spices and blended in well with the sides.
Circle Cafe serves a variety of cakes along with their house favourite desserts.
The name “lazy cake” intrigued us. Therefore, that was our pick for the dessert. Since we were full, we requested for a thin slice just to taste the signature creation.
It is a no-bake cake with layers of chocolate and biscuits giving it a melt in the mouth feel and an amazing texture.
The cake was perfectly sweetened and was not very overwhelming after a good filling lunch.
We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and left the place satiated. We liked the fact that the cafe served very healthy and fresh meal options along with a great vibe.
