Koramangala has an exuberant supply of bars and pubs all over. Every other day a new watering hole pops up and the crowd goes wild to check it out. Something unique and something new to offer keeps the folks entertain and startle at the same time.
Drunkling is another additive in this lot and it is here to stay. The place is revamped from a sizzler joint to a casual hangout now. It offers drinks, sizzlers and on the top environs in one package. A three-level building with casual dining at first, an intimate bar at the second followed by a dance floor at the top level.
A bunch of us decided to hop on a weekend to try out the place. Warm colours in the dining place welcomed us, and we decided to hop on the upper seating.
Beverages & Bar Bites
I started with a glass of sangria, a total delight, everyone else went with a draught beer. The one dish that attracted me on the menu was PopCorn Aglio Olio – a combination of fresh popcorn with olive oil,chilli garlic, and parsley. Hence, we hogged onto that first. A great combination as a bar bite.
We started with the lasooni kebab in non-veg delicacies and paneer tikka in vegetarian dishes. Chicken kebabs were tender and a recommended dish. The most noteworthy dish here has to be the Chicken Bruschetta- minced chicken topped on garlic bread with a side. Above all, it had a generous topping of cheese to add more flavours.
The other favourites included Paneer Tikka, soft and mouth melting paneer pieces marinated into spices and then cooked onto a tandoor. The charred flavour added an extra element in your mouth when you bite into these heavenly pieces. It was served with stir-fried green bell peppers and onions. The green mint chutney at the side added a cherry on the top.
The menu was enticing and we went ahead with Mushroom Basil Pizza and Peri Peri Chicken Burger for the main course. The huge burgers really justified the taste well.
The pizzas are thin crust and generously topped with cheese and veggies/meat according to the preference. The Mushroom pizza was well combined with the sweet and sour sauce along with caramelized onions.
I ordered the stuffed paneer sizzler, the star dish of the place. With a bed of spicy noodles and a big chunk of stuffed paneer on top, added with well-sauteed veggies and fries on the side. The mashed potatoes were creamy and rich in butter.
The perfect way to end the meal was with a chocolate brownie and caramel custard and whereas it did not disappoint. I felt the caramel custard consistency could be better.
A place to hang out and drop in with your friends for some good time and music. Very pocket-friendly as well.
