    Roots by Melting Bites

    A charming restaurant that certainly ticks all boxes to satisfy any hipster or cafe nomads out there. Food-wise, hearty Western delights and assorted cakes are not the only anchors of attractions here, be sure of wolfing down couple of churros. Stacked in an aluminium pot and coupled with chocolate, caramel, and cinnamon, getting fat is a blessing when you have a combination that is this sinfully satisfying. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, you could do this all day long.
