One of our colleague’s friends at Jaipur beat was visiting Jaipur, and all of us wanted to meet him over coffee and food. As per the original plan we were to eat Italian but that didn’t happen as the restaurant was closed, and then while driving around we spotted Mamu’s Infusion. We had been reading about it in local newspapers, and how it was the restaurant version of the old-and-famous ‘Mamu’s’ shop at C-scheme.
We opened the doors to a Victorian-looking cafe at about 8:00 pm and occupied a table that seated the four of us there. The cafe has colours, some quirks in its furniture, a book-shelf and beautiful chandeliers. You can’t visit a Mamu’s joint and not order cold-coffee, and so we ordered cafe-frappes for all of us. Jalapeno poppers and pink pasta for food, on the basis of suggestions from the staff there, after which we started our chit-chat session.
Just then, families started pouring in and with all the kids at their excited best, we had to adjust our volumes and ears in order to be able to carry on with our conversation. Our guess is, it is a place suited for friends and family, you just have to stick to the usual hanging-out timings of each.
Our tall foil-covered glasses of coffee arrived and they looked really nice; it tasted just as nice as it looked. The jalapeno poppers and the pink pasta were good too. The place also recommends their whole-wheat pizza and pasta for the health-conscious and a new-dish called papad-platter for the papad lovers.
We felt too full and for the first-time decided to skip the dessert; but as luck would have it, the owner of Infusion offered us to try their very-signature mud-pie, and that too as a complementary dessert! No matter how much one grows up, the charm of complementary stuff never wears off 😉 It was indeed a unique and tempting looking dessert, where the brownie was filled in a small-pot like mud! And a small water-dispenser containing chocolate-sauce came along with it. We couldn’t resist and finished every last speck of it!
All in all, a very new and refreshing hang-out for Jaipur with a decently-priced menu, such that you would want to go there again!
