Spinach & Corn Lasagna. Taken quite literally and served exactly that. I have been frequenting this place, Roastery, quite often. I love the ambience & food there. One of the places where I would definitely want to go with my favourite people.
Coming back to food. So, every time I go, I order something different. The last time that I went there, I had lasagna cravings and so I ordered Spinach & Corn Lasagna. While it looked delicious, I would still not recommend it to anyone. Let me explain - the pasta sheets were cooked properly, the plating was nice, the melted cheese made my mouth water as I saw my server carry it in his hand from afar.
When the plate was in front of me, I just couldn't wait to dig into it. I took the first bite and the smile from my face went off like a fused bulb. It was cooked well but,
There was just too much of spinach and corn in it. More corn than spinach.
It was really bland.
The first bite was a mouthful of corn with spinach in the background and pasta lost somewhere. I mean, it was just corn corn corn corn corn. It was like eating boiled sweet corn with a hint of pasta somewhere and occasionally cheese too and a bit of salt. We had to ask for extra salt and pepper to sprinkle on it before we took the next bite. :(
If I look at them separately, all the ingredients were well cooked. The only thing missing was some spice, cheese and a balance of how much corn & spinach was added in the lasagna. There was no taste of lasagna in it.. just corn & poor spinach here and there.
I am not writing off Roastery basis this one dish. They still have their Cheesy Fries to die for. :D
P.S: The plating although looks quite appealing but the lasagna should be served in a big bowl shaped plate else it gives it a massive look on a flat plate. Just what I think. :)
