Big Pitcher needs no introduction per se to Bengaluru. With being as one of the most recognized breweries in town, the concept of different experiences in each level is the one that intrigues me a lot.
The Star Lounge at the rooftop level is one which specializes in grills and cocktails. With indoor as well as rooftop sitting with quirky lights and live grills setting. The chefs engage in live cooking skills.
As a brewery, we had to start our meal with Beer tasters with in-house beers and some seasonal beers too. Adjust Maadi is another dry Hefeweizen with tropical fruits taste. American IPA is another moderately strong drink with citrus and berry melon taste.
We started with some Galouti kebab with mutton minced to perfection and with a mini Tawa paratha at the bottom. The main star dish of the day was Prawns Espanol with juicy
jumbo-sized prawns drizzled with spicy and tangy gazpacho sauce.
To talk about the vegetarian starters, we had the hara bhara kebab and Veg cheese corn balls stuffed generously with corn and mix of mozzarella and cheddar cheese.
One of the best chicken dishes I have ever had and I can’t get enough of was the Green Chicken Ghee Roast served with Neer Dosas on the sides. A Mangalorean delicacy with green chili and southern spices oozing with lots of ghee. A lip-smacking chicken dish with slight spicy taste with new exotic flavors.
Another signature dish of the place is Naanza which is a pizza served with naan as a bread topped with Indian flavors of veggies and chicken. Tandoori Chicken Naanza goes well with beers. The base is flaky and crispy with makhani gravy used as a sauce and grilled tandoori chicken and spices as toppings. The vegetarian version varied with paneer and other veggies of choice.
However full you are, you always have room for desserts, hence we had to order their Naked Chocolate fantasy which is one of their signature and premium desserts with a rich multi-layered chocolate cake which is flambeed with spirits which goes so well with the chocolate and adds an extra bitter taste of the alcohol which is mellowed by
With some new additions in the menu which are sure to remember. The Star Lounge is one of the best choices to enjoy Bangalore crisp weather and good food.
