Inspired by the four corners of the world, Piccadilly Square has come up with the new Awesome Foursome menu — a fusion of flavours that “takes a little of everything” — to celebrate its fourth anniversary.

The quirky combinations come with a twist. The Tex-Mex Pita Tower has a mix of refried beans and tomato salsa piled on top of crispy baked pita, a Mediterranean speciality bread, instead of the traditional nachos. Serving up some traditional bruschetta with a fancier twist, inside a shot glass, are the Italian Bruschetta Shots. “Olives and tomatoes have been added to retain the tangy flavour,” said Pooja Baid, director of the Sarat Bose Road street cafe, the venue for the feast.

Oriental Babycorn Fritters represent the Far East, but with a combination of tomatoes and a sweet chilli and mayonnaise dip seasoned with Italian herbs. Two of the best mixes on the menu are the French Lasagne and Spaghetti Crumble. The lasagne is a cheesy delight with grilled vegetables in bechamel sauce, topped with crispy spinach. Unlike the usual lasagne, this version doesn’t use lasagne sheets but crepes.

The Spaghetti Crumble is a savoury Piccadilly Square take on the traditional crumble. Sun-dried tomato sauce tossed with spaghetti and topped with a crumbly focaccia, basil, parsley and thyme — tastes as good as it sounds!

The best comes in the form of Mt Cocoa, a chocolatey indulgence that includes a molten chocolate-infused cake and some in-house raspberry gelato on the side. “Don’t attempt sharing!” warns Baid with a laugh.

The Awesome Foursome is in addition to the regular menu being served at Piccadilly Square till September 16, from 1pm to 10pm. A meal for two would cost Rs 350-400 (plus taxes).
