strawberry mojito, naarang iced tea, jerk chicken and the seafood burger

sugar bear & chocolate chip ice cream

I was invited to Aura Café to try out a few dishes from their new menu and there were a few things I tried out for the first time!  

Naarang iced tea & strawberry mojito - If you've read a couple of my café or restaurant posts before you'd know I'm a fan of ice tea. I've never had a naarang flavored iced tea before so it was a really interesting and a fun combo to have which is always refreshing. Apart from the strawberry mojito being so pretty the flavors are not overbearingly sweet. I've had a couple of strawberry mojito's before and some of them and been so sweet it's cringe worthy. These two are the perfect way to beat the heat!

Jerk chicken - Since I don't eat meat my friend got a meat option from their new menu. After a few minutes of contemplating on what to order she finally decided to go with the jerk chicken and I think it was a very good choice. First impression of this dish, the plating! For a café dish the jerk chicken was plated extremely well and a little fancy, made us go "Oooo". Even though it does look quite small it's one of those dishes that fills you up and you end up remaining just a little bit. The jerk chicken comes with chicken bacon and this amazing potato that I had to try so I could tell you guys how good it was. If you like a little masala twist in your food this is a excellent dish to order.

Seafood burger - Has anyone had a sea food burger before? I hadn't, so I decided to try it out cause I know the burgers at Aura café are so good. You have the option of choosing potato wedges, fries or onion rings as a side dish with your burger. If you follow me on snapchat or Instagram you know how big this burger really is! First impression of this dish was how generous the portion was with my onion rings almost falling off the board. If you've never had a seafood burger before you NEED NEED NEEEED to try this! it's one of the best burgers I've eaten in my life and I'm not just saying this because it's a review but my friend who's also a chef thinks so too. Definite must try!

Ice cream - As full as we were after our amazing meals we were offered with Aura cafes signature ice creams, sugar bear and chocolate chip. If the word 'cute' could have a taste it would be the sugar bear ice cream, with it's tiny little jujups sprinkled on top and it's not vanilla flavor I honestly don't know what it is but it's the cutest thing I've eaten. At first when we tried the chocolate chip it wasn't as sweet as it looks but then you catch a chunky chocolate chip while eating it and it's ohh heavens all over again, so soo good! I don't think you can find these flavors anywhere else, so if you do stop at Aura Café make sure you try one of these flavors out.
