Sea Rock – Paradise for Sea Food Lovers

Sea Rock Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Sea Rock, a name that makes me drool over the ghee roast masala and seafood. It is a legendary restaurant that primarily serves the coastal cuisine of Mangalore. The irresistible aroma of fresh ghee roast seafood and the awesomeness in taste blends together for an impeccable and satisfying experience. This place serves one of the best seafood in the city. And it’s not all, they also serve Chinese cuisine and some delicious vegetarian dishes, so the vegetarian friends can have wonderful options to choose from. Their service is superb, and ambience is also classy!

ORDER:

I went to this restaurant with a group of foodies, so I had an opportunity to try out many of their signature dishes.

In soups, I had their Crab Soup.

For starters, we ordered Prawns Ghee Roast, Squids Ghee Roast, Chicken Ghee Roast, Crab Ghee Roast, Kane Tawa Fry, Pomfret Masala Fry, Anjal Masala Fry, Mussels Masala Fry, and Egg Ghee Roast.

In main course, we tasted the Mangalore Fish Curry, Kori Roti, Neer Dose, Palak Rice, and Boiled Rice.

In desserts, we tried Ragi Manni and Gulab Jamun.

TASTE AND QUALITY:

Although, I am an old-time seafood lover, but this was my first introduction to Mangalore’s cuisine, which I relished to the extreme.

Crab Soup had the distinct aroma of crab and it was yummy. Broccoli added with Crab, made a really healthy and tasty combination.

Special mention for their Ghee Roast items, the masala in all the Ghee Roast food is absolutely drool-worthy and made me salivate!  It’s heavenly and gave an extremely fulfilling gastronomic experience.

Prawns Ghee Roast had the freshness of prawns blended with the flavourful masala, and the aroma of pure ghee, a fantastic combination! Now, what else does a seafood lover wants? Maybe, squids and crabs but need not worry, Sea Rock has all of them to offer.

Squids Ghee Roast was very also very good in taste. I love Squids, so it was one of my favourites at Sea Rock.

Chicken Ghee Roast was OK but the seafood and vegetarian at this place are far better!

I like the savoury taste of crab and but it’s not always that I look forward to eating it wherever it’s available. This is because you don’t get fresh ones at any other restaurant, so, I mostly try them during my visits to any of the coastal places or at a few selected restaurants in Bangalore. Crab Ghee Roast absolutely quenched my desire to have an amazing crab-eating experience in Bangalore.

Well, it’s time for something fishy! I am talking about the incredible variety and taste of the fishes here, Kane Tawa Fry, Pomfret Masala Fry, and Anjal Masala Fry. Unquestionably, the taste got to be perfect and yes, it was! I loved the presentation too.

Do I like mussels? If anyone would have asked this question to me before I visited Sea Rock, I would have shaken my head no. Probably, because I never got to try much of the mussels except in Goa, where I had a bad experience with it, at a restaurant. This place changed my perception completely with their Mussels Masala Fry. I had many of those and can vouch for its palatability.

Egg Ghee Roast is not only for the eggetarians, but it made me crave for it even while writing this article. I hope this clearly communicates my opinion about how delightful it was.

After having an overdose of the appetizing starters, I didn’t have much appetite left for the main course, but I certainly wanted to try Mangalore Fish Curry. I relished this speciality with Neer Dosa, Boiled Rice, and Kori Roti. The curry had all the awesomeness in it, however, I didn’t try the pieces.

Apart from seafood, I also love vegetarian food a lot. In vegetarian, spinach is one of my favourite leafy vegetable. So, Palak (Spinach) Rice, another speciality, and a signature dish of Sea Rock did a thoroughgoing justice to its name our exceeded my expectations. Not only it was luscious but also healthy.

If you’re still reading, you would know that it’s time to talk about the desserts we had. Although, I never had Ragi Manni before, so I am not the best person to comment on its authenticity and taste, nevertheless, in my opinion, it was just not up to the mark. Therefore, Gulab Jamun, served hot was good enough for me to change my palate.

SERVICE AND AMBIENCE:

The staff is polite and courteous, they served us well. The service is prompt and considering that they were serving a big group in the peak hours, kudos to them for their attentiveness.

Ambience is decent with nice interiors and décor. It looks upmarket and the seating layouts are also relaxing and comfortable. You get a feeling to relax and have a good time while dining.

Tiger Zinda Hai – My Opinion on the Bollywood Movie

India wants peace? Of course, yes!

Other major countries of the world want peace? Yes!

Many common people from Pakistan want peace? I think so, yes!

Pakistan’s army, dictators, terrorist from Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) want peace? A big NO.

A movie for Salman Khan’s fans but far from reality! Please read the complete article to understand my point-of-view.

Tiger Zinda Hai movie was recently released, and within a short duration the movie has already seen a huge success. The storyline is based out of Syria and Iraq, where a terrorist group ISC (in actual ISIS) is operational and has created a panic situation by abducting a group of nurses from India and Pakistan.

While, a lot has been said and already there are many reviews floating online, my post is about what the movie is trying to achieve and if it’s just a money-making business for the producers and director. The movie shows that India and Pakistan, precisely Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and ISI that are the intelligence agencies of Pakistan and India, have worked together to destroy the empire of ISC and set their countrymen free. Moreover, US also played an important role to finish ISC. A lot of dramatic sequences are included that defy any possible logic and are far from reality.

Of course, movies are not meant to show the reality and it’s not a documentary where you show the facts. However, what I felt is that the director was hallucinating while shooting because they portrayed Pakistan as a peace-loving country. Initially, you might feel that the movie is trying to give a message of Indo-Pak peace. Many common people in Pakistan might not be supporting terrorism, as what we usually hear but it’s definitely not the case with ISI or Pakistan’s army and politicians.

It’s a well-known fact that Pakistan is a country that supports terrorism on its soil and ISI is its major wing that executes the hateful plans of killing innocent people. How can anyone forget that the prime terrorist, Osama bin Laden was being sheltered in Pakistan and very close to their capital city of Islamabad when US forces found him and shot him dead.

Keeping this in mind, if a movie shows that the common people from both sides of the border want peace and they don’t want war or hatred, it is true and will send a peace message to Pakistan’s politicians and ISI. Instead, the director showed that ISI shook hands with RAW on a common mission, which is next to impossible at least in near future.

We all want peace but am I expecting more as a peace-loving common citizen of India, that an Indian movie should have at least a basic patriotic sense and a message of peace should have been given in a slightly different way keeping in mind the real facts! A big question is what is the role of censor board and do they pass such movies just because it has a great star cast?

They could have showed that India wants peace, the whole world wants peace, and even many people of Pakistan want peace, then why does the Pakistan’s army, politicians, and ISI support terrorism? They should also care about their own citizens and stop brain-washing the youth for killing and perform mass-executions of the innocent people. This is for the safety of their own citizens, which will also help in making a better image for Pakistan worldwide. If an Indian movie communicated this message, certainly, it would have made a better impact.

Don’t get me wrong, I am a fan of Salman Khan for almost two decades and really admire his acting and humour. I love the fact that whenever a Salman Khan-starred movie is released, it automatically becomes a blockbuster and that has become a general trend. But I am also a fan of my country and its generous foreign policies for Pakistan, but this has not been reciprocated by Islamabad, and as a result, India has always been cheated by Pakistan’s dictators and Army. I also wish that both the neighbour countries should have peace and the people should live happily.

But this looked like an effort to make Salman’s fans from Pakistan, happy. Salman Khan has numerous fans on both sides of the border and to appease the fans from a terrorism-supporting country, this is perhaps the best effort.
