I make my own luck and I make it in a pot and then I bring it to potluck – Jarod Kintz
So there the secret is… you gotta make your own damn luck!
And we think, we did.
We got lucky when we visited PotLuck. Sometimes you get happen to hit a jackpot and find a place that makes you really happy the moment you step in each time!
Done up in cool blues and peaceful whites, this place is modern yet has an old world rustic charm! Wooden tables that bear a worn out look, floral chairs and cushions give it a very cozy and homely feel. Once you enter, you definitely do not wish to leave. Complete with huge wooden panelled windows, light blues and whites covering the walls and lots of knick-knacks that add colour and pizzazz to the interiors.
The outdoor seating is the best with lots of plants to lift up your spirit, feeling like sitting in a garden! Only one issue, they do not have a shade and hence one can comfortably sit here only when the sun has set. Otherwise, this would be our favourite spot to be at!
Just like the décor, a great deal of effort is put in the preparation and the presentation of food.
They have a good mix of breakfast options, nibbles, sandwiches, burgers along with salads, pizzas and kinds of pasta.
We entered the place in desperate need of coffee (no, it is never going to change!) and were really happy and satisfied with the Cold Coffee.
It was the right amount of strong and thick and was so chocolatey.
How often does it happen, that you go to a place, just for coffee or tea or maybe a sandwich, but you end up staying for so much more!
It happened to us at PotLuck. The music, the ambience, the food and everything, literally everything made us stay back for just a little longer.
We ordered Maggi with a twist and Mince Soya Burger.
The twist in the Maggi was the insane number of veggies added and the spicy masala. One can find tiny pieces of everything, from carrots to mushroom to onion to bell pepper. The masala makes it mildly spicy and really delicious. Slurpy and delicious!
Mince Soya Burger had a soya based crisp patty with mushrooms. Lots of cheese, rocket leaves and tomatoes made this burger a complete delight. The flavours very not very sharp, as is expected from mushrooms and soy, but we could not have enough of the burger!
Cranberry Lemongrass Cooler was magnificent! When it was first put on our table, we were a little shocked.
Who wouldn’t be? Look at that!
And then, a strong aroma of Lemongrass filled the air. Not only is it totally Instagram-worthy but it was really refreshing and enjoyable with intense flavours of cranberry and lemongrass, the later overpowering the former just by a whisker.
Watermelon Basil Splash is another delightful drink made fresh, with watermelon and basil leaves and topped over with Sprite. We say fresh coz we saw them cut open a watermelon, crush its pieces along with basil leaves and then prepare our drink.
The best part? Flavours of watermelon and basil overshadowed the soda content.
Open Garden Sandwich was equally delicious with lots of veggies, a really strong pesto sauce and cheese!
Fruit Barni Ginger Ale was a mix fruit mocktail with pieces of apple, pears and cucumber. Ginger did not overpower the other flavours, rendering a fruity and energising drink.
Apart from the food, another amazing thing about the restaurant is their playlist! Seriously, keep your Shazam ready, you are going to want to get a lot of those songs!
Overall, we just love the place. A calm and serene ambience, with really good food and warm service.
