Xander's Cafe - Fit for a king
Engaging all your senses, Xander's Cafeis a therapeutic experience, which helps you unwind with a visually refreshing ambience and a platter that brings you the best of the season, which is tastefully exhilarating.
Catching you off-guard, the light clear lemongrass soup with prawns and rice noodles promises you flavors that will relax you for a refreshing culinary experience. Breakfasters are in for a treat with perfectly runny and light, egg benedict served on a bed of sliced salmon on a warm muffin. The runny yolk warming you to your toes can only be described best as comforting.
For those who want to taste exotic flavors to compliment the aromas of citrus and lemongrass making the ambience surreal, theberry salad with fresh strawberries, and a treat of caramelized walnuts and crumb fried goat cheese tossed in raspberry vinaigrette accompanied with cranberry and ginger cooler would be just what you need to get you going on a hot summer afternoon.
The wood fired pizzas, which are a refreshing change from the commercial doughy ones and combine the scent of the forest with the tantalizing aromas of pepperoni, fresh basil and melted cheese.
The platter is incomplete without a taste of the seas, which Xanders does the best with its open prawn sandwich and the perfectly done crispy fried calamari served with sesame and chili sauce. The succulent mini burgers are a 3 dimensional experience, a juicy pate with a combination of blue cheese and mushroom in home-made buns are for those who want to dig in to tastefully filling food.
Double chocolate brownies with lindt chocolate chips, strawberry tart and the classic red velvet top the meal with satisfaction that speaks of quality and richness. The friendly waiters who’r trained in the tastes of the place, the timely service and the delicious food see Sikandar Rizvi’s words meeting their end as he puts it ‘I don’t want it to be just perfect, but great!’
