BENGALURU: You can seat yourself in a swing or lounge on a cot, as you sip on a citrusy cocktail. Or you could order the espresso-based drink while you sit around angular tables with colleagues at Harry’s Bar + Cafe, Koramangala. The restobar now serves a newly crafted menu at this larger format venue.
There is a private dining section that can accommodate up to 70 guests for personal or professional gatherings. The dining area even has projector, for official meetings.
The restobar has also introduced a few games to keep the customers entertained. The fun ring-toss challenge can win you a free beer and also a camera click with beer-shaped spectacles. You can also take a beer challenge if you are confident that you can break the record by drinking 500 ml chilled draught beer in less than six seconds. Yes that’s right. A customer has created a record by gulping it all in six seconds.
You can kick start your evening with a Expresso Martini. The dark maritni shot with expresso and hazelnut tastes as interesting as it sounds. The strong flavour of hazelnut and light bitterness of coffee served in the martini glass topped with a Kit Kat bar is de-stressing. Coffee lovers will love this drink.
The Midnight Mojito is a well-balanced cocktail. The dark rum bubbles with lychee, fresh mint, sugar and lime. Light golden in colour, the iced drink is refreshing with a strong mint flavour and a sweet taste of lychee which is placed over the glass, stuck to a stirrer.
The Eye Candy is a Absolut atermelon martini. The Blood on the Roof Top is truly a killer with four spirits and peachy lemonade with some red wine.
If you love breads, you must order for the The Pita Chips with Classic Humus. The pita chips are breads that are soft and crusty, the top layer of these triangle-shaped breads tastes good even if you have them without dipping them in humus.
The Thai Curry Rice Balls are crispy and crunchy. These chewy balls are served with coconut tomato chutney. The Pineapple and Paneer Tikka is a unique combination. The delicate, square cottage cheese is served with a pineapple slice. The spicy tandoori marinade of the paneer overpowers the sweetness of the pineapple.
For mains, try some Penne with Wild Mushroom Ragout. The mixed mushroom, chillies, garlic and parmesan cheese pasta is rich in its texture and taste. The creamy penne has a persistent milky taste.
The Harry’s Cajun Chicken Burger has a distinct taste. For a first, this is well assembled with a layer of cheese, chicken and some greens. Take a huge bite of Creole-spiced chicken patty, crisp greens and corn relish. The potato wedges that are served with the burgers, are fried to a perfect brown and crispness.
The highlight of the dinner was the dessert Drunken Volcano Cake which will make you crave for more. One is just not enough. Alcohol is poured into the warm choco lava pudding and set alight, briefly, and blue flames dance over the chocolate base. Served with vanilla ice cream, the chocolate oozes out as you dig your spoon into it. The bitterness of the warm chocolate blends well with the cool vanilla ice cream scoop.
