Fondue Festival @Cafe Mangii - UB City Bengaluru


Fondue is all about huddling enjoying cool weather and hot melting cheese in a group. The swiss love their fondue it's also a kind of festive ritual with its own customs and rules. Fondue is prepared during winter and summer monsoons. In India fondue has become so popular after the pizza Indians simply love the gooey goodness...

Fondue is normally prepared with   Gruyère and another cheese such as Emmental or creamy Vacherin fribourgeois. Traditionally fondue is prepared with white wine nowadays people want fondue with out wine the taste and preparation is adjusted as per customers desire.

We wanted to savor the fondue at Cafe Mangii which is located at 2nd floor UB City. Cafe mangii is know for their wood fired pizzas, pastas and desserts. I have visited cafe mangii many times we have always enjoyed the wood fired pizzas here must try pizzas margarita and al-funghi must try drinks are Brownie smoothie and spice girl..



Ambiance: The ambiance at ub city cafe mangii is bit crammed but the second outlet located at orion mall is spacious. The seating is comfortable...Needs more air conditioning during summer we were sweating and this was irritating us and did not enjoy each others conversation...

Service: They need to be bit more attentive and help the customer with menu. Once the order was placed we were served with in 15 minutes which was lovely. The staff was friendly and accommodative...

Fondue Menu Card 


We were there for lunch by 1 pm. Once seated and the menu cards were given we ordered some wine and apricot iced tea...along with 2 pizzas frutti de mare and peri peri chicken pizza...

I totally did not like the wine it was bad not edible my dad who was with us did not like to waste anything so he had the wine...as far as the apricot iced tea I totally loved it was so refreshing packed with flavors...


Apricot Iced Tea..


They do not serve beef and pork here...only chicken...I totally remember having pork in the other outlet was bit confused when the waiter told me its all chicken...

Frutti De Mare is a thin crust pizza topped with a thin layer of pasta sauce and peppered prawns, crab meat and scallops its then topped with bocconcini mozzarella cheese and grilled to perfection...I totally loved the pizza it was tasty fresh fish used for preparation must try pizza if you love fish...

Peri Peri Chicken Pizza is also a thin crust pizza thin layer of pasta sauce is spread on the crust and topped with chunks of peri peri spiced chicken, bell peppers and caramelized onions then topped with cheese and grilled to perfection...I felt the chicken was bit dry but loved the flavor and taste in the pizza could have been spicy to suit Indian taste palette..
