Celebrate Bollywood and lip-smacking grub at this Desi pub.

Though we may not admit it far too often, a whole lot of us are die-hard Bollywood fans. Of course, we all go through the precarious head shake when films break into unrealistic plot lines or no-brain entertainers, but at the end of the day; a good dose of masala Hindi movies can relieve stress like nothing else. So, what happens when there’s a deadly fusion of Bollywood and delectable cuisine, that is every movie buff’s dream come true? Give thanks then, to Big Bollywood Adda, the new resto-bar from Hotel Prestige, at Balmatta junction, which manages to look glossy and still delivers food with a serious kick. Of course, there’s a lot of decor to whistle. Big Bollywood adda welcomes you with a popcorn machine, quirky Bollywood movie posters right from ancient Indian cinema to the likes of Padmaavat and everything is set up in retro Bollywood style. The menu, table mats, cutlery and even the staff’s uniform, assures you of a filmi ambience and is remarkably different from the rest of the pubs in the city. Your juice can arrive in a skull-shaped jar or a bulb-shaped container, and for all you know, you may even marvel at it.

GPRS – (Ghee Roast Sausage Pulao)

The dish which sort of stood out amid the starters: a rust-coloured cone overflowing with cheesling bhel and crunchy fried chicken, aptly named Chicken Khurana bhel, is distinctive, to say the least. The flavours are subtle, but unique and give an exciting twist to our ever-popular street snack, a kind of indulgence that lifts it far beyond a plate of mere bhel puri.

There’s another crispy seafood, and chicken papad dish served in an overturned umbrella-shaped bowl, holding in place two sauces-mayonnaise and spicy ginger-garlic; to scoop and dredge into, that make an interesting appetiser while you wait for the main course. We are still wondering why it’s called Crackpot though, a mystery for another day, perhaps.

For the mains, we very much liked the sound of Sorpotel Na Milegi Dobara: Portuguese spiced mixed pork with ladi pav where the earthiness of the meat spoke of a different calibre, altogether. Not to forget, the incredible ghee roast sausage pulao, because life without ghee roast is bleak, and, for us an unmissable dish at any place that serves it.

Dessert may be less thrilling, but good for all that. A tooth-achingly sweet candy floss with caramelised popcorn and Toffee, topped with strawberry whipped cream Nutella freak shake that plays out as a less indulgent and aromatic dessert. If you’re in the mood for some tipples, the alcohol is moderately priced, and they do serve an astonishingly good cocktail called Candy floss, essentially a vanilla vodka flavoured with basil leaves and Malta orange. Order a couple of these and get armpit deep in a menu that is sure to make a mark.

 Onyx will bowl you over with it’s freshness, zip and zing.

There are some restaurants when they have everything else that’s going for them, offer food that’s better than it should be. The view from Onyx air lounge and kitchen, overlooking M.G road on one side and the T.M.A Pai hall on the other is so vast, and the sense of floating above so engrossing, that the magic of the food and ambiance is merely a bonus. Add to it, a bartender that expertly swirls the bottles like in the movies, and your life seems complete.

A monumental live screen with a separate large 17 seated table is poised ever so royally in the already classy, vivid atmosphere. In keeping with its name Onyx, i.e., which removes negative energy, here is a unique place perfect for get-togethers to bond over food, drinks, music and more! Interactive elements like Teppanyaki live, an exclusive dessert counter and an expansive island bar, you name it, and Onyx has it.

On a hot summer’s night, when Mangalore shimmers yellow and green beneath a topaz sky, Onyx air lounge and kitchen is much the same. With a sub-level party room, separate smoking section, great selection of alcohol and high-quality cutlery, the friendly staff is an extra.

So with all this going on, the food is as robust and sturdy as the place that it’s a part of. It’s also as international as the contemporary interiors they display.

Their Oreo shake is made of a crisp, tasty wafer and crumbly oreo bits and cream, that does smoothly tingle your palate. It comes with colorful sprinkles decorated all around the top to distract you from the chocolaty brown oreo hues.

If it’s a mocktail that stands out, it has to be the Bell Pepper, comprising of cantaloupe, orange juice, and bell pepper melon. Though it has a high bell pepper flavor, it still isn’t overpowering and is nice and smooth. Dislike Capsicums? No worries, because the Melon Sour Mocktail scores big time with a watermelon base and a minty flavor that is undoubtedly for the sugar fans.

There is, naturally enough, a varied menu dedicated to the superstar contents and yet we opt for the Chicken Kalmi Kebab because what’s life without a kebab?However, only one thing matters with a Kebab. Has it been adequately cooked and crisped? Here, it has. It comes with a green sauce that complements it perfectly.

Meanwhile, we can’t skip out on a Paneer dish, so the Paneer Peri Peri it is. The tinge of Peri Peri is best savored when eaten slowly. Another dish that we highly recommend is, the Chilli cheese rum-flaming pizza, crispy, delectable balanced with the bitterness of the rum in a nice contrast. And then, there is the Bhatti ka murgh presented beautifully in a brass jug with charcoal pieces at the bottom and juicy Chicken kebab skewers.

Afterwards, as you move stealthily onto the vast dessert station, you can find a tempting array in the Masala Chai Panacotta and the ravishing cheese paan. A unique sponge cake is seen in the Tres Leches but full points to the dessert winner for us -Marble Cheesecake that we scarfed down in seconds

With nothing short of a ‘pitch-perfect meal,’ your love for the place just intensifies. An in-house DJ spins out pulsating music and is raring to rock the place while the inventive cocktail menu is impressive(read Tamarind Martini). The VIP lounge in a stylish cubicle with a customized menu and personalized hostess is enough to lift your spirits.

Onyx air lounge and kitchen sure has raised the bar, for party dwellers of the city making it swanky, sassy yet affordable for Mangalore’s clubbing culture. What are you waiting for?

Chow on their delicious chicken lollipop or their curiously addictive BBQ chicken wings served with spicy chilli sauce as you soak in the easy-going vibe, contemporary wall art and blaring music. Be it Mughlai cuisine in the form of Chicken Mughlai stew or pitch perfect Macaroni served elegantly in white sauce, they’ll keep you coming back for their extraordinary flavour experience.

Desserts are worth saving space for with their array of pan ice creams like Banaras pan, rum and raisins served with /without liquor.

Sunday brunches are the raison d’être for exclusive friends and family get-togethers, and at The Old Bison, there’s all the more reason to celebrate, with a combo comprising French fries, cheese nachos, chicken /paneer cheese sliders, chicken n’ sausage pasta and more, all for INR 799.

Mesmerising ambience, flavoursome food and rhythmic music awaits you at The Last Stop Lounge

Now that Mangaloreans are willing to take a break from conventional restaurants and explore quirky, new age eateries, The Last Stop Lounge emerges as the ideal tavern for an “out of this world” experience. Uniquely built around a garage theme, the attention to detailing about decor deserves an accolade like none other. From tool-shaped cutlery, a vintage bike elegantly perched just after the main entrance or the confrontational slogans dotting the walls, they’ve got it down pat. Why they even have bi-cycle pedals as foot rests below the table! Talk about innovation!

Food spans to a variety of continental, Indian and Chinese and The Last Stop Lounge scores high in the continental cuisine.
For starters, the Charmoula chicken skewers served with a sublime honey mustard mayonnaise is a crowd-pleasing dish. As, is the Corn crab Tikki, if you prefer something sweetish.

Furthermore, vegetarians can breathe a contented sigh. Here’s a place that serves some exceptional vegetarian cuisine like Dahi ke sholey, Paneer hilltop, stuffed mushrooms and paneer chilli with well-balanced dimensions of flavour.

With every plate executed in perfect technical detail (like the fries, for example, come in a tiny snack trolley, and the potato wedges served in a little red scooter), The Last Stop Lounge never ceases to amaze in their exemplary service.

Ostensibly, they believe that a good laugh gives your appetite a boost, which is why their bar menu is brimming with witty one-liners to crack you up, while simultaneously prepping you to savour from their extensive spread. The novice drinker can indulge from a range of alcoholic beverages including cocktails, and mocktails(if you intend to stay sober). The Cosmopolitan is worth luxuriating in, and they do serve some decent Sangria.

For the mains, tuck into some ravishing chicken scallopini comprising juicy chicken served with portions of steamed rice and veggies. Pasta is a delight, and the Mac and cheese, with heaps of sauces and cheese, are a cut above. Bear in mind, that you may not eat for a couple of hours after devouring this. If not days. Nevertheless, you can dig into some Chimi Churri Rubbed Basa, which is a tasty, value-for-money dish.
