One of the best Cafes I ever visited !
Rating – 5/5
So where do I start about one of the newest entrants in Agra in the Cafe’s category – Mocha ! Should I talk about their stupendous rooftop Ambience and seating, quality of crowd they get or should I straightaway come to the main part – their amazing food..Oops feels like I am getting ahead of myself, let’s take one aspect at a time. Though I usually don’t give a full on rating but this experience truly deserves it !
Location & Ambience : To be really honest once you take a look from outside it just doesn’t give away a lot about the Ambience part having been situated at a vantage point on Fatehabad Road. However once you enter their multi level seating – indoor on first floor and outdoors/rooftop on second it feels really good especially at the top with some colourful artefacts / swings with some not so loud music and thankfully so !
The Food : Man oh Man if you’re into global cuisine like Burmese Khow Suey, Indonesian Nasi Goreng, Banoffee Pie, Lebanese Mezze platter apart from the usual Indian and Chinese cuisines this is “the place” for you without a shadow of doubt !
Some of the delicious items Agra Foodsters tasting panel tasted Today were : Aslam’s butter chicken tikka
– though it has nothing in common with the old Delhi delicacy but a tasty chicken tikka nevertheless followed by some crispy and tangy chicken wings and a mild preparation – stuffed Chicken Tangdi
as part of the Non Veg platter.
The Fudge Brownie Freak shake was huge and was my companion till the end of my meal and was worthy of a freak shake as how it should be, full of cream, brownie chunks, gems and choco chunks, yummy 👅
The thin crust three Chilly vegetarian pizza was again pure love full of cheese and was a simple preparation without a lot of toppings but it still did the trick of making us drool.
The mutton Dum biryani was pretty unlike Agra and was tilted towards the Hyderabadi style of preparation and overall it was enough to leave a mark on biryanimaster though a slight area of improvement would be to have more meaty pieces to make it an irresistible preparation.
Usually I don’t have a lot of personal affinity towards Sizzlers however the Peri Peri Chicken Sizzler was pretty decent for a Sizzler preparation and I am not surprised that I indeed liked it.
Though both the Desserts were absolutely fine however I was totally blown away by the Chocolate Avalanche preparation which was a mouth watering combination of Chocolate Mousse, chocolate truffle, chocolate Brownie and chocolate fudge combined with chocolate icecream was sinful at its best. Priced at 225 bucks this preparation is worth every single penny and is good enough for 3-4 people.
Among the newer breeds of cafes recently opened in Agra I would rate Mocha right among the top ones. Moreover given the quality of food and Ambience at roughly 400-600 bucks per person this isn’t an exorbitantly expensive proposition either. Go for it and I am sure you would love it as well.
