Food Review – Fattoush, Bannerghatta Road, Bangalore.

Standard

Got an invite from FATTOUSH Restaurant – A Multi Cuisine Restaurant (www.fattoush.com) for their food tasting event, on last Friday for dinner. The event was around 7.30 but due to heavy rain and traffic, got struck up a while and reached there around 8.15. The food there was delicious and perfectly cooked, I would highly recommend of all meat lovers.

About Fattoush: Fattoush is Euphoria’s pride, multi cuisine restaurant which served delights from Arab, Chinese, north and south India. They serve hearty breakfasts, Sumptous lunches and lavish Dinners. They also have a Popeyes Banquet Hall, ideal for conducting business meetings and family gathering.

Location: It is located in the Bannerghatta Road, next to Fortis Hospital and opposite to IIMB.

Ambiance: The ambiance of the place was perfect with a good car parking at the basement, a perfect place for kids, as they have a kid’s area, it was very spacious with beautiful lightings and wall hangings.

Food: We were served with varieties of food ranging from Chinese till Arabian dishes. Arabian dishes were cooked to the perfect, especially the meat was awesome and perfectly done. I would strongly suggest this place for all the meat lovers. Let me share my experience in detail:

  • Mocktails: Green Fire – This green fair was a combination of chillies and passion fruit, the punch of chilli in this mocktail was awesome. A must try here. Ginger fizz – It was too good, one could feel the punch of ginger, also good for digestion. Blue orange, Mint Mojito, Passion mango, Fattoush special – raw mango cocktail, lady mist. All their mocktails are totally healthy with helps in digestion.
  • Starters: Mutton yogurt, Sheek tawook, mini mirch tikka, Tiranga paneer tikka, Crispy chilli Babycorn – No words for this Crispy Babycorn – it was as the name 100 perfection, Malai tikka, Red Dragon chicken – Even now I am drooling for this Red Dragon chicken. A must to try here.
  • Main Course:  Lal Maas – Here comes the Hero of all the meat lovers – the color, taste, texture and way the meat was cooked are perfect – a finger licking dish – Highly recommended to try. Pahadi murg – The chicken was tenderly cooked with masalas and a bit of sourness, made the dish heavenly. Mandi mutton – Arabian Fragnant Rice, cooked with right quantity of spices – perfectely done, black pepper chicken rice, fried rice, Kabsa mutton – I usually love this kabsa rice, but this time it was delicious. A perfect place for Arabian Cuisine.
  • Dessert – We had falooda – Royal falooda – was loaded with dry fruits and nuts and then Matka Kulfi was awesome.

Servings: Very happy about the servings.

Suggestions: A must to try for all the Arabian dishes. May be its tooooo far from my place and hardly takes 1 ½ hrs to reach the place in peak times, but I would say I will visit soon for their iftar specials. As one can even travel miles for heavenly food, I like to travel to this place soon.

Food Review – Yauatcha, Bangalore

Standard

Here comes my lovely experience with FBAB 4th meetup in YAUATCHA restaurant, Bangalore. As it was my 3rd meetup with FBAB, this time I enjoyed a lot and got in touch with few of new foodies. Thanks to FBAB for their invite.

This time it was on a weekday, 28th of July around 7:30 to 9:00, this time I was bit late due to the heavy traffic on C.M.H. Road.

Yauatcha is Chinese restaurant created by Alan Yau in 2004, who is also the owner of Japanese Wagamama and Busaba Eathai. We have been invited for the review of their Dim sum trail and Dessert platter.

These Dim sums are something new to me, thought they are the same as that of momos. But both are different whereas momos are native to Nepal and they are wrapped with dough and juicy filling at the centre.

Dim Sum: Dim sums are Cantonese food that has grown increasingly popular in western world. Dim sum mean “touch the heart” in Chinese, which were designed to touch the heart and were served as snack with flavorful tea. Really a good experience and love the taste of dim sums.

There are few varieties of Dimsums with unique taste, those dimsums were not only steamed but also baked and fried. First we were served with dimsums and we were also guided to hold and eat with Chopstick, a good experience. Finally we were served with dessert platter, I love the macroons (6 varieties).

Sauces: Burnt Chili sauce, Soy sauce, Hot Garlic sauce and Duck sauce

Dim sums:

  • Fried Turnip Cake: It was delicious, the very first time I experienced the taste of turnip – Heavenly. It was crispy outside and was very soft inside. Also it was served along with fried garlic pieces.
  • Crispy Vegetable Cheung Fun: I loved it to the core, it was folded with the dough and filled with crispy vegetables inside as its name “Cripsy Vegetable Cheung Fun”. Cheng Fun are served with in a pool of salt or sweet soy sauce.
  • Prawn shanghai Dumpling
  • Crispy Duck roll: Basically I am fond of Duck meat, these crispy duck rolls was too good with a crispy layer outside and the duck filling, moreover when accompanied with Duck sauce — no words.
  • Chicken char sui bun: It was sweet, filled with mildly spiced chicken and the dough in the outer portion is softly steamed. My favorite among all these varieties.
  • Vegetable Crystal Dumplings: It looks very attractive where the outer layer is very transparent filled with vegetables.
  • Pickled vegetables

Dessert platter:

The dessert platter has mousse, cake and 6 varieties of Macroons. Macroons was perfect, may be their shape, taste and texture.

Last but not least even my family was having dinner by that time at Yautacha, my kids loved their Turnip cake and my hubby their Crispy Duck roll with Duck sauce. Later on I was telling them about the other varieties which tasted more delicious, so maybe soon I will be visiting with my family.
