Great place for seafood
After going thru the 2 reviews posted earlier went to this place yesterday. Great place for seafood - crabs, prawns and fish. Not exactly great ambiance for a romantic outing but if it is Value for Money you are looking for then this is the place for all seafood lovers.
My pick - Prawn Burger & Crab cutlets
I have only tried the prawns here, so far- the prawn burger, the Chworinghee Prawn(prawns in Kasundi-fiery Bengali mustard), the Malpe Prawn(kind of like aghee roast), and the Serangoon prawns(prawns in a black peppery sauce). As well as packets of their prawn chips which transports me back to my birthplace where these are so popular;)
The prawn burger rocks! chunks of prawns welded into a largish crumb-fried patty. Thank god, one can actually taste the prawns, and of course anything deep fried in crumbs would have to try really hard to go wrong...
for the rest, I had two problems:
The sauces were just a bit too pungent(not to spicy but had a slightly raw smell) and need to be tempered more. I am no authority on how prawns are cooked in Malpe or Rangoon/Serangoon? but I can say for a fact that the mustard in the Chowringhee prawns was just a bit too strong too be an authentic Bengali dish:)- the other thing is, it seems that the prawns were separately cooked and then thrown into the sauce rather than cooked in the sauce itself.
However-I will give this place four stars, because of the concept (my Bong heart jumps in joy at the idea of a cafe solely for seafood) their sincerity-the prawns were fresh , fleshy and well cooked not raw, cleaned and de-veined properly which is often a rarity in this town-Helpings are good too, for Bangalore, six medium prawns for Rs99. Hopefully with a little practice they can improve their cooking and then they can easily achieve full marks
Another suggestion-please give customers the choice of Seer Fish. I don't like Tilapia ;(.
Nice Seafood @ Reasonable Price...
We went there yesterday night and tasted almost all in menu.
It's a open Cafe in a shopping mall, so nothing to write about ambience.
The food was very good and reasonably priced. Most of the items are priced at 99 Rs. I felt their Fish items were better than Prawn items.
We had :
Kerala Parota (Good)
Crab Cutlets (Very Good)
Chowringhee Prawns (Very Good)
Karaikudi Prawns (Good)
Malpe Prawns (Good)
Serangoon Prawns (Good)
Karaikudi Fish (Very Good)
Malpe Fish (Very Good)
Rechado Fish (Good)
Tandoori Fish Burger (Average - bun can be better)
Fish & Chips (Average - too oily)
Indian Berry Drink (It's okay, but I didn't like it)
They have only one drink (Indian Berry), and they should seriously consider at least Soft Drinks.
The Quantity of food is reasonable, but I felt can be slightly higher.
