It's always wine o'clock at Mesa Bistro!

Aerocity is one of my favourite places in Delhi to dine and simply loiter around. There is a certain degree of fanciness to it and I love getting pleasantly surprised by all the promising new restaurants that have opened up there. My latest discovery, the quaint and cozy Mesa Wine Bistro in Worldmark 3 is agreat place for a lazy brunch or an elegant evening alike.

Our server was an enthusiastic chap who helped us with the best dishes on the menu, and also picked the best wines that went with each course. We started off with a sparkling rosé called Fashion Victim Astoria, a very light, summery and fruity bubbly. Our appetisers included a bread and dip platter, spinach and cream cheese roll, and garlic butter prawns for my non-vegetarian company for the brunch: Mehak {ShadesofMoon}. I absolutely loved the crispy, buttery, flaky skin on the roll and the gooey cheesy stuffing: things got really messy but it was all worth it. Next up, our coca {a Spanish pizza} came with a flatbread topped with sauteed mushrooms, bellpeppers, and lots of cheese. It was slightly less exciting than its Italian counterpart but tasty nonetheless. It was accompanied by the second wine of the afternoon: the classic white Chateau Martinon Entre-deux-Mers {2018}, more sour than sweet, with tangy hints of lemon and spice.

Lastly, I had the vegetarian paella cooked in white wine with broccoli and asparagus, topped with crispy almonds and fried garlic. It was like the comfort food of the gods, definitely one of the reasons I'd be willing to go back to Mesa! Our third and last wine, the Spanish Rioja Vega Crianza 2016, was particularly memorable one..mostly because I prefer red over any other kind of wine.

The desserts were even more fantasticwe tried three. Madagascar is a true delight if you're a chocolate & coffee lover: think cocoa mousse with espresso icecream on the side. Chocolate and caramel sponge was exactly what the name suggests with a four layered cake and mixed berry sorbet on the side. My favourite however, was Poached pear alomond tart, the simples of them all. Crispy pie crust stuffed with warm peaches, with some mango sorbet on the side. My day was complete!

Go to Mesa to expand your palate and try flavourful European food that won't disappoint, while having some of the best wines at your disposal.
