Cheeky Bee in Punjabhi Bagh is as cheeky and fascinating as its name suggests. This cutesy joint serves some great American, Mexican and Comfort Food with a splash of sass and you really should give them a visit.
A 15 minute walk away from the Shivaji Park metro station, Cheeky Bee is an Instagram addict’s wonderland. The restaurant, as its name suggests, is themed around the black and yellow colour scheme and we are living for it. With all the components of a perfect hangout spot, the Cheeky bee has quirky interiors that are accentuated by the very prominent light fixtures, wooden tables, stools that are all yellow and brown, and black chairs. All of which justify its theme without being so over the top that it goes beyond tacky.
Plus the Beelicious wall is an ideal background for when you’re looking to get those Insta clicks!
The last time we were here, we ordered their Pink Pasta, Mexican Sandwich, Panko crusted Cottage Cheese Burger, and one each of Popcorn Caramel and Brownie Shake.
The pink pasta was enough for at least three people, the portions had us all giddy and well, it also tasted all-right. The burger too was huuuge and yum-yum and the Mexican sandwich was- kind of Mexican and American mixed together so that too was quite good. But the thing that stood apart from the entire food selection were the fries, though a side for the burger and sandwich, they were fresh, crispy, and had a little kick to them because of the spice and herbs, in short- perfect. They really complimented everything we had.
Coming to the drinks, we ordered one each of the brownie and popcorn caramel and they were stunning! First of all, they looked like they came right out of a perfect shake Instagram picture. The brownie shake looked so good with the rich brown colour, the whipped cream a little piece of brownie on top and it tasted like a dream. But what shook us and took us through a sweet and savoury whirlwind, was the Popcorn caramel shake. It is the best thing the joint has to offer and it will surprise you pleasantly, the classic caramel popcorn turned into a thick shake is unexpectedly fabulous. The shakes really are beelicious and you should order them if and when you visit the restaurant.
Overall, the place had a very good vibe and the staff was warm and welcoming, and the shakes alone, make the place worth visiting.
