The city has witnessed a dessert revolution of sorts. Over the last couple of years, numerous dessert and ice-cream places have mushroomed in the city. The latest entrant in the arena is Jack’s Resto Café. But what is unique about the place is that this is the brainchild of a 21-year-old medical student, Jaykiran PA, who studies at Sri Ramachandra College, who is passionate about food. Jack’s Resto Café is located in a quiet apartment complex right next to Taj Coromandel and welcomes you with warm brown and yellow interiors and bright lighting. The place even has a small alfresco seating.
If you are thinking that the place is all about desserts, then we assure you that there are plenty of options for those with not-so sweet tooth. Infact the place serves delicious pizzas, pastas, sizzlers, burgers and an array of appetizers.
But their USP is the handcrafted ice cream roll, a Thai street-food specialty. Jaykiran has himself received training in preparing those in Thailand and passed it on to his staff.
As you step in, you actually see a live dessert island replete with hot waffle irons, cold ice cream plates and other dessert making equipments.We tried out the Kit Kat Mousse and were floored by its strong chocolatey flavour and immense lightness. The ice-cream rolls have unique flavours based on Snickers, Bounty, Guava Chilli, Brownie Caramel and so on.They also serve waffles, pancakes and crepes.
The café also has an exhaustive savoury menu. Among appetizers we loved the Classic Bruschetta, Buffalo Chicken Wings and Fish Crackers. For main course opt for their delicious saucy Ravioli or the thin crust pizzas. Both filled with cheesy goodness and bathed in flavourful sauces. And yes, if you are caffeine addicts, do not miss out on their coffee cuppa.
Jack’s Resto Café also has a separate lounge area for hosting private parties and get-togethers. This 15-seater area has a giant screen available to screen matches, stream sitcoms or music for a small group.
With some great options on the menu, both in dessert and savoury section, the café is steadily making its presence felt.
