A chic, vibrant and typically Instagram-worthy décor with a menu that pleases the younger generation, the moment you enter Xero Degrees you know that it is one hot spot for the youngsters of today, the gen X.
The youthful vibe of Xero Degrees reflects in each of its elements. From the walls that adorn quirky quotes to its vibrant seating indoor and the big logo that you can sit under and get a picture for your gram, the vibe of Xero Degrees breathes cheerfulness.
The menu is also designed keeping the youth in mind and thus you would find a good range of pizzas, burgers, fries, juices, mocktails, freak shakes and more. In fact, Xero Degrees is particularly known for its fries and shakes making it a favourite for everyone.
Xero Degrees is located in St.Inez, Panjim. It’s on the third floor and offers both outdoor and indoor seating, the outdoor seating in the balcony area offers unobstructed views of green fields and you can feel the gentle breeze caressing your soul.
The huge island bar inside is one of the highlights and you can see many people behind the bar shaking up mocktails and freak shakes one after the other. The presentation of food, especially the mocktails and shakes is another reason for you to visit, there is no one who does it like Xero Degrees. From tall beakers to jars, the glassware at Xero Degrees is unusual and strikes a chord with you instantly. In fact, they let you take away some of these beakers and jars too, now that is quite cool, isn’t it.
The food menu is as quirky as it can get, for instance, the names of their sliders are based on popular television series like Money Heist, Game of Thrones, Sacred Games, Indiana Jones etc. Money Heist sliders are something that I highly recommend, they were really delicious. Chicken Strips were another winner of a dish, crispy from the outside and tender juicy chicken on the inside, it made for a perfect snack.
As mentioned earlier, fries in a jar and pizza in a jar are something people crave at Xero Degrees. They have varieties like Tandoori Fries, Pizza Fries, Mushroom Fries, Peri-Peri Cheesy Fries and More. I tried the Tandoori and Pizza Fries and loved them both. A word of caution here, they are pretty loaded and heavy, so order accordingly. One portion can be easily shared between 2-3 people. As for me, we were a family of 4 and one portions of sliders and 2 fries served us just right.
We had also ordered a portion of chicken dim sums, but they were disappointing, I am sure by now they would have taken care of it.
To finish the meal, we ordered their classic shakes in chocolate and strawberry, and both were delicious to the core. I mean it was really something I can go back again and again for.
The prices are affordable too and I think it’s just a perfect place for teenagers, college-goers and youngsters in the job to hang out with their friends, eat great food and not burn a hole in their pocket. Parents with young kids should definitely visit this place, the kids will love it, and for all the uncles and aunties who are young at heart, Xero Degrees is the place for you.
