What do you do when you want to eat out but not compromise on health and hygiene? You head straight to Fig at Museo in Gurugram. By Tanvi Jain
As soon as I reached Fig at Museo, the first thing I noticed was its artistic vibe. Nestled in Gurugram’s very own camera museum, MUSEO, this establishment is designed around the idea of wellness and culinary perfection.
Head Chef Manish himself came to greet me and helped me get seated. Soothing and peaceful, are the two words I would use to describe the ambiance. If you want to dine in peace, Fig is your go-to place.
As I glanced at the menu, I decided to start with a drink. The chef recommended peanut butter coffee, and I would say, it was the best coffee I had ever tasted. Then I was served some Mexican Tacos — total winner. Next up was harissa avocado sourdough toast, followed by quinoa salad, both the dishes were enough to take me on a healthy culinary ride.
After the starters, it was time for the main course, for which the chef recommended sun-dried tomato ravioli with parmesan cheese and basil sauce – another dose of something green and healthy. One thing that I found common in every dish so far was the floral decoration. Every dish was garnished with colourful petals, making them a delight not just for the taste buds but for the eyes as well.
Another interesting combination I was served was the pumpkin massaman curry with jasmine rice, and it was absolutely delicious and satisfactory.
I was done! But off course I can’t leave without dessert, so I ordered my favourite tiramisu, and I am sure I don’t need to explain anything further, just the name is enough, to make you drool.
“We focus more on healthy, gluten free, vegan, keto diet. We use the concept of healthy hydroponic greens. Our smoothies are also vegan, and we have cuisines from across the planet, be it European or Asian. We are planning to introduce more fresh, local ingredients,” said Chef Manish.
The place also has a facility to dine under the sky, in their beautiful garden area, but what caught my eye, was the bubbling cheese atop the wood-fired pizza.
A place of warmth and natural hues with soulful wholesome food, Fig at Museo is perfect for all health enthusiasts, even if you are on a vegan or keto diet. The soothing atmosphere and romantic vibe make it a perfect choice for a date night too.
