The buffet, kick-started with a daily-changing special range of soups. That day, we tried out the,‘Cream of Spinach and Mushroom Soup’ the sweet-sour taste, with mushrooms split afloat in the soup gives us the perfect combo!

For starters, they had it us served at our table, hot and fresh! It consisted of a wide range of products, beginning with ‘Paneer Tikka’, the soft and masaledaar paneer, served grilled, with grilled onions, capsicums and tomatoes to top them. Its combination with green-mint chutney is heavenly.

Spring Roll’, these fried little chops which consists of fine-veggies, with soy sauce, which is served hot and tasted better with the tomato ketchup and indulges our taste-buds to an adventurous start.

‘Cheese Corn Nuggets’, as the name suggests is a blend of cheese and corn fried into nuggets. This one would be an all-time favourite for the ones who love cheese. The satisfaction when you cut open these nuggets with drooling melted cheese will awe you.

‘Baby Corn Varuval’, is the tangy-fusion of the Westo-Indie spices, baby corn is fried with gram flour-coating and is presented in the form similar to that of a south-Indian varuval.

Biryani and Pachadi).

They also had a live-counter, which was deliciously hand-made by the chef, the dish served on that day was our all-time favourite, Pav Bhaji, served with onions and lemon.

The icing on the cake was the Desserts Section, which seemed like an ocean full of varieties, waiting to be gobbled up. We literally didn’t know where to start from, the options available to attack were, Sweets (Dry Jamun, Semiya Payasam, Barfis),Pastries (Choco-Orange, White Forest), Fruits (Water-Melons, Pineapples, Pumpkins and Bananas). The Desserts section also included the likes of Ice-Creams (Vanilla with Chocolate sauce) and Mojitos (Sweet Lime, Kiwi and Strawberry)

Beat The Heat With Cream Chemistry – Ice cream parlour!!

I’ve always had a sweet tooth, and wish to explore all the sweetness in the city. Recently, I wanted to celebrate my daughter’s birthday, and we decided to try out this new place, Cream Chemistry, located at multiple places in Chennai- Besant Nagar and Anna Nagar. We decided to visit the latter and to our surprise, the place was such well built with creative interiors, it impressed us on another level instantly.

The menu had so many variations and options of ice cream that it was hard to order anything specific, so we decided to order some, and were totally excited to try it out.

So, we tried out these few many ice creams and shakes.

1. KIWI LAND :

Simply, one of the best ice creams for all the kiwi lovers, the ice cream is mashed into four cylindrical rolls with the kiwi squash is used as dressing on top of the rolls gives it a very appealing look, wanting to gobble it as soon as possible.

2. TANGO MANGO:

The perfect flavour for the perfect season. Tango mango gives you a ripe and a fruitful ride through its khatta-meetha taste that gives a soothing and sparking flavour to your taste buds. It is definitely in my must-try list.

3. OREO CREAM:

The word “OREO” itself makes us have an exceeding expectation from the product. To be honest it does not defy its expectations and gives us a good treat. The serving as usual was phenomenal. The chocolate sauce used for dressing, gives it a chocolatey taste to oreo, which makes it up a deadly combo!

4. CHOCOLATE LOVE:

As, the name suggests, people who love chocolate would love this. The serving consists of your favorite, chocolate ice cream rolled into, with a brownie cake on top of them, dipped in chocolate sauce gives it a mouth-watering and craves us. This one also features in my must-try list.

5. CHARCOAL:

The most trending flavour currently around Chennai, and in this particular one, there is a fusion of charcoal and Nutella that creates such an irresistible taste. It is served with yummy and colourful sugar crunchies. Its our families favourite Icecream so far😍

6. NUTTY CHOCOLATE SHAKE:

The blend of nuts and chocolate and milk is always a mind-bobbling one, which can refresh any mind at any moment. This drink also has all the nutrients in the world that makes you feel energised and can fill your stomach. It is served in a ‘test-tube’ glass which looks appealing and phenomenal.

7. PAN BANARAS:

What can be better if we don’t end with a pan? The Pan Banaras is the hand-made ice cream where ingredients like gulkand, pan(squashed) and ice cream. Topped with white chocolate chips, gives it an amazing taste. This also makes to my must-try list.

On the whole, this was one of my greatest experience exploring stuffs in Chennai. I would also rank this place highest in terms of ice creams, a must-visit place with your friends and family
