Gather Your Companeros
Located right smack in backpacker’s haven, The Great Mischief is a cafe located conveniently at the lobby of The Great Madras Hotel, with open air dining and al-fresco seats.
The Great Mischief serves some seriously amazing Spanish tapas ideal for sharing and gathering.
Even though we have zero idea on how to pronounce at least half of the food items on here, they all sound bloody amazing. Just take a look at it!
There’s a variety of tapas for you to choose from at very affordable prices. Perfect for all you individuals going on a budget but still want to enjoy quality food!
The Croquetas ($9) is what we describe as love at first bite. Choose between pulled beef or chopped mushrooms in breaded smashed potatoes.
Another hit on their menu is the Gambas Al Ajillo ($12). These prawns are perfectly pan fried and tossed in their homemade garlic sauce. These prawns really packs a punch of flavours.
They’ve recently revealed a Raciones menu as well! It is not typical to order raciones by yourself; the portions are far too large to be enjoyed without company. To do so would really limit the variety of what you are trying since you are unlikely to have the appetite to eat that much – but you do you!
The Filet De Tonyina ($24) is a yellowfin tuna with a herbed breadcrumb crust served with mix greens.
This next one is perhaps our favourite on their menu. The Fideuà De Marisc ($22) is a squid ink paella pasta cooked in a seafood broth with prawns and aioli.
Their new raciones are made for sharing, but will you want to after looking at those images?
What’s a good meal without desserts? The Churro Con Chocolat ($8) comes with 2 perfectly fried churros rolled in cinnamon sugar served with a dark chocolate dip.
Complete your meal with their mocktails such as the Startled ($9) which is an interesting concoction of cinnamon, egg white, kaya, lemon, milk.
If Spanish cuisine is your thing, this place is the ideal place for those sit down, chit chat sessions with your makan kakis. Great ambience, amazing food at affordable prices, what more can you ask for?
