Sea Food Extravaganza @Barbeque Nation Bengaluru

Barbeque Nation's Seafood Festival was one of a kind experience. I along with my food blogging friends, was invited to savor the bestest seafood in town. It took me nearly 2 hours to reach the venue after hurdling the traffic. Upon reaching I was asked to head to the 1st level,  The Ambiance and Decor matched the theme vibrant sea feature doodles, conch shells and an elaborated crustaceans display was quiet appealing and made me totally hungry. 

‘Prawn cocktail, Seafood platter, Crispy Fried Anchovy with Tamarind Sauce, Mai Thai prawns, Basa Peri Peri, Maryland Crab Cakes’, Crispy fried Squid and a live Meen Varuval counter just amazed us all.

Apart from the wide and unlimited range of starters they also serve signature dishes on the table must try dish is Tandoori Crab Gravy. Fresh and Choicest Seafood is specially imported by the chef for this festival.

Barbeque nation has tastefully designed the menu every dish served to me was quite innovative packed with flavors. My favorites on the menu was the Mai thai prawns, Mutton Galouti Kabab, Tangdi kabab, Crunchy Corn and Prawn Biryani.

The vegetarian selection was quite innovative from soups to grill was quite awesome I was totally surprised to see a kabab prepared out of Lychee, Dates and Kidney bean kabab was again and experience for me. I've  never heard or tried these dishes before.

The Dessert counter display was quite a sight gulab jamun cheese cakes, chocolate tarts, elaneer payasam and mango mousse was really tasty saving the best for last was Kulfi Nation is again a live counter where you get to choose from 6 flavors, 6 toppings, 10 sprinkles and 7 crushes. Mix and match, to create your kulfi. My Favorite Pick was Paan Kulfi. The service was just awesome overall enjoyed every bit...

Kamat Loka Ruchi

Kamat Loka Ruchi is conveniently located on Bengaluru-Mysore, Highway. After the famous Bidadi Thatte Idli next up is Kamat Loka Ruchi which serves authentic north karnataka and mangalorean cuisine. Must try dishes at Kamat is Mude idli  which is steamed rice cakes in screw pine leaf moulds the flavor and taste is unique its also steam cooked on coals so the smoky flavors adds to the taste its always served hot with spicy chutney.

The ambiance is rustic and calming. warli art on walls is an ancient Indian graffiti art form the pops of color and thatched roofing ties the whole space togeather the space is bright and airy. they have also used veggies like onion pumpkin and garlic for decor this is not only decor but in the old days they used to hang the veggies from the ceiling to prevent from bugs and rats. this also helped to keep the mosquitoes and flies away.  

They also have options for breakfast buffet. we chose a-la-carte the second dish to try is chow chow bath which is upma and sweet sajjige. The flavors and taste is amazing since its all cooked in ghee the upma is perfectly spiced and the consistency is right.

Next Up is Neer Dosa which is served with 3 different condiments neer dosa is a must try mangalorean dish the soft dosas are yum its always served with kara chutney, kobari bella and saagu.

Saving the best for last is filter kaapi and Jalebi which is cooked in pure ghee over all must try restaurant if your on Bangalore Mysore highway.

Our Bill was 240/- worth every penny.
