Refreshing blends of your choice, only at the drnk lab
“Sugar, spice and everything nice”, while these were the ingredients chosen by the infamous Professor Utonium to create the Powerpuff girls, in the American superhero animated series, it indeed comes to mind when you visit drnk lab as you sample delicious concoctions that are whipped up with your favourite ingredients. That’s right; Chemistry just got a lot more exciting because when there’s food involved excitement peaks levels for grub lovers everywhere.
Rightfully called “drnk lab”, this exuberant yet pretty modest eatery, situated in the Nalapad Residency Building at Light House Hill Road, soothes your taste buds with delectable experiments where you get to pick what ingredients go into your drink. With its nicely lit up ambience, quirky seating area, European vibe and colourful panels, it’s always brimming with fun, food and conversations.
From creamy sundaes, mouth-watering sodas and faloodas, to teas and sizzling ice creams, the delicacies served at the drnk lab are nothing short of phenomenal.
While the cordial staff recommended us several drinks and quick bites, here’s what #aroundmangalore liked:
Berry lovers, dig into this humongous glass, that is incredibly flavorful, soothing and refreshing with generous amounts of raisins and nuts and chilling vanilla ice-cream to top it off.
This tempting mixed fruit lassi with apple, banana, grapes and strawberry is pleasantly sweet and the type of drink that you would want to keep sipping on again and again.
Nutella milkshake with ice-cream and toppings makes up for a divine treat that only Nutella fans would get.
Nut get together:
Besides the apparently bizarre name, this one does have it all together with an intense honey flavour and a copious sprinkling of nuts and whipped cream.
Yes, we do love our drinks, but what’s a place without food, so of course drnk lab has their fair share of quick bites like burgers and kinds of pasta. If you’ve been hitting the gym regularly, then you can have a go at their salads too.
So, since we’ve now run it all by you, it’s time to head out and conduct your own little experiments at the drnk lab. And while you’re at it, we sure would love to hear about them too.

Located opposite Big Bazaar, it encompasses a menu that runs the gamut from steaks, pasta and chicken to biryani, seafood dishes and the continental fare with creative twists to their desserts. The kitchen dishes up numerous varieties like Balls of Fury (stuffed cheese balls with spicy sauce), Butterfly Prawns (crispy deep-fried jumbo king prawns served with schezwan mayo) or the Chefs special – Kill the beast burger.
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.

Burger Lounge – Mangalore
Grab some delectable burgers at burger lounge
Haven’t there been days when you’ve just wanted to dig into a scrumptious, juicy burger? It’s time then, to make a quick dash to-burger lounge, a fast growing burger joint in town.
With a varied menu: chicken steak burger, cheese burger, zinger burger, chicken 65 club sandwich, sausage club sandwich, chicken lollipop, fish burger and more. They have some refreshments like ginger lime, watermelon juice, ballgrape, pista milk…
The burger meal is an excellent way to satisfy those hunger pangs, and it comes with a choice of chicken or vegetable burger, a side of crispy, golden fries and a milkshake of your choice.
We recommend the Zinger burger and the smoked chicken sandwiches, with the burgers having a delicious pate and loaded with garlic mayonnaise, lettuce, cheese and cabbage. Also among the quenchers, the Mint lime is refreshing, with just the right amount of sweetness and the tall glasses of milkshakes are rich and creamy.
The use of subdued brown to the cafe gives a homely, mellow feel and portraits of old telephone booths, Eiffel tower and the likes are placed on a wall.
Overall, a great place to chill with a group of friends and grab a quick bite.
