How often do you discover a place which exceeds your expectations? A place serving appetizing and flavorsome food and the best desserts at one of the most sought after locations in the city. Without a doubt, Wild Sugar Patisserie and Café is THAT place!
I was recently invited to Wild Sugar Patisserie and Café for a tasting by the chief squeeze at Pomelo Social, Mr Sasha Anand and I am glad I accepted the invite.
The minute you arrive at this warm patisserie cum cafe, you are greeted with the enchanting aroma of fresh breads and bakes. Moreover, their wide food display gently tempts you to order everything that you can see in the first glance. Comforting interiors and a breezy Al fresco area makes you fall in love with this property.
1) Brownie Shake
2) Apple mint Mojito
If you need a chocolate infusion (and really, who doesn’t?), this delectable Chocolate Brownie Milkshake is for you. Chocolate ice cream is blended with crumbled brownies, milk and chocolate syrup. Yes, this is chocolate heaven in a straw! Also the Apple mint Mojito is an all star, easy to follow glass full of pure refreshment.
1) Vegetable Arancini / Chicken Arancini balls
2) Chicken Tempura
3) BBQ Chicken Wings

The carnivore in me just doesn’t let me settle for veggies and hence the humble chef Ajay made me some chicken arancini balls and boy, I was overwhelmed. Crisp rice balls with delicate, juicy cheese stuffing inside, that’s chicken arancini balls for you! The batter for the tempura was light and went really well with the spicy mayo. I really liked it and would want to try it again.
BBQ Chicken Wings: Game day or any day, BBQ wings are always a winner; the in house BBQ sauce gave it just the proper tang and I fell head over heels for them. It’s a must try dish at Wild Sugar.
1) Koshimbir Salad
2) Apple, Pear + Walnut Salad

Koshimbir Salad: A salad with a belgavi twist, a surprise to be honest, never knew I’d like something of that sort, fresh and crunchy vegetables with soaked moong dal, you’ve got to try it to believe it. The Apple, Pear and Walnut salad again took me by surprise; this didn’t have any feta but mascarpone and it tasted heavenly.
Spicy Mutton, Egg + Cheddar

|Tomato basil + Mozzarella|
I loved everything about this sandwich, what’s not to like? Bread, eggs, melted cheese, butter, minced meat, it’s a perfect sandwich! Wild Sugar is very consistent with the ciazzas, I’ve tried it before as well and I can vouch for this oval shaped ciabatta.
The Breadish Conection
1) Chicken Pita Pocket
2) Harissa Chicken + Egg Panini
|Chicken Pita Pocket|

Pita bread bulging with slow roasted chicken, lettuce in mayonnaise, flavor enriched and accompanied with perfectly fried finger chips. I am salivating even while describing it.
The Harissa Chicken and egg Panini was a letdown as I felt the bread was too dry, the flavors lacked a punch, the feedback has been passed to the humble chef and I am sure he will take good care of it hence.
