Ok, so we would be late for the movie. But it was right there, people bustling past its steamy windows and we could never quite resist the lure of that ole brown stuff…

The automatically opening glass doors (a convoluted phrase from my childhood, when four year olds would step in front of and away from the doors just to watch them open and close) at Satyam’s Ecstasy (by Mickael Besse) ushered us into the modish room, with its stunning paper-shredded (it looked like it!) lights and yes, that so-comforting brown.


Oddly, enough, for such a warm yummy place, the chairs were annoyingly loud and rattly (painful when as a gang of girls you tend to be rather clumsy). We also embarrassingly knocked one of the glass panes on the side of room, freezing pink momentarily as the noise traveled across the room. Mercifully, comfort was close, in the embracing nuggets of (yes, finally) brown. (Are the little sample chocolates a standard there?) Anyways, we tucked in like greedy squirrels before gamboling down the aisle towards, the oh-so-pretty display of international desserts at the counter (the menu has more intriguing items listed).

A went for a fruit tart, V for the Tiramisu and me for the extremely picturesque Mikata. (All about Rs. 100 plus). While Ecstasy, serves up some truly creative and unique dishes, the taste…well…let’s see. The fruit tart was way too sweet.


The Mikata which was figs and some sort of cream thingy, came with a rose icecream and tasted sorta like air… The tiramisu though was spot on. As were the Mango smoothie and Cappucino…

Perhaps the allure is the experience in itself. And the extra dish of complementary chocolates… ;-)

    Hey sorry. I ought to have been more explicit! “Satyam’s Ecstasy”, that’s Satyam Cinema’s Ecstasy at Satyam Cinema. Sowwie :-D

    I too thought that the apricot tart was the most exciting looking. The almonds are bitter chocoloate coated. Btw the Chef Mikael Besse is from france.

    I hope stuff like this works in chennai. we could use some pizzaz and jazz around thep place!
