We usually review places, but in this YAMU Loves feature we'll highlight some of our favorite food and drink around the city.
It's rare to stumble across an easy-to-grab meal that's both delicious and filling: and that's why Black Cat's chicken quesadilla makes it to this feature.
Shaped a bit like a sliced adukku rotti albeit much thinner, the quesadilla is packed with succulent chunks of chicken, loads of gooey cheese, and a bit of tomato.
It also comes with a side of chunky potato wedges and either two types of sauce or coleslaw. The latter depends though, as I've had this dish around thrice and the sauce options differed several times. It has consistently been accompanied by what seems to be a home-made tomato sauce though, which is delicious.
The quesadilla comes piping hot, the tortilla is crispy and light, the filling actually stays in and doesn't spill out, and it's surprisingly a very hearty meal which would be enough for two people if you weren't starving as there are four heavy slices. The carrot and cabbages used in the coleslaw were intensely fresh and had a nice crunch to it, and it wasn't slathered in mayo enough to make it wilt. The thing about Black Cat is that they don't overdo things — the meals are simple, but with high quality ingredients and great execution so it strikes the right balance in just about everything (especially portion size and the blend of flavours).
Overall, we really do like this. At Rs. 800 it definitely is expensive but the quality and taste of the dish justifies it: you do get value for money.
