Mobydick Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Mobydick, a restaurant located at a prime location in Koramangala, Bangalore is truly a multi-cuisine restaurant that serves delicious food from all popular cuisines. The reason I emphasized on the multi-cuisine term is because they have a variety of food and drinks in their menu, from the local favourite, Nati specialities to Pan Asian, Bengali cuisine to Italian food, and American to English. Everything is served under one roof and the food is just superb in taste and quality!

Because, I went with a group of friends, I had an opportunity to taste most of the items from their menu and almost everything was great in taste and a few were above average, if not very good. In fact, their mocktails and some of the dishes left me awestruck!

I am wondering why I didn’t visit this place earlier. They have an edge over the competitors with their pricing, which is a bit on the lower side thereby, making them a reasonably priced restaurant in the restaurant hub of Bangalore.

ORDER

I started off my food explorations at Mobydick with their signature drinks. I tried their Melted Brownie Hot Chocolate, Chilli Guava, Strawberry Lemonade, Blue Ice Crusher, Orange Lemonade, Red Velvet Shake, Iced Tiramisu Shake, Lemon Ice Tea, and Peach Ice Tea.

In starters, I had their Barbeque Chicken Wings, Kasundi Fish, Double Pepper Lamb, Mac n Cheese Samosa, and Garlic bread.

In main course, I tried the Nati Chicken Curry with Rice, Philly Cheese Steak Burger, BBQ Chicken Steak, Grilled Lamb Steak, Indonesian Curry Noodles, Black Pepper Fettuccine Pasta with Wild Mushrooms, and Thai Green Veg Curry.

They have a good variety of desserts in their menu, I tasted the Salted Caramel Cheesecake, Sizzling Brownie, and Tiramisu.

TASTE AND QUALITY

I have recently developed the taste and love for hot chocolates and so, I couldn’t resist myself from tasting it, whenever I get a chance. As it was in Mobydick’s menu, I tried the Melted Brownie Hot Chocolate and was amazed to see that they made it so perfect. It was very tasty and I enjoyed it.

Chilli Guava is a must-try beverage at this restaurant. It tasted somewhat similar to a Virgin Guava Mary mocktail, however the hotness of the chillies in it was not very high and in control so that you actually enjoy it while drinking. The aroma of Guava and a hint of chilli flavour was amazing! The glass had the red chilli powder coating on the edges, so you get an absolutely lip-smacking taste and a wonderful flavour altogether.

Strawberry Lemonade was another special drink that they have in their menu. The taste of fresh strawberries and lemon juice is a delightful combination. It was really refreshing and another must-have drink at Mobydick.

Orange Lemonade, Blue Ice Crusher, Lemon Ice Tea, and Peach Ice Tea were refreshing, and I liked it. Along with food, it was a nice combination to sip these drinks.

When I ordered the Red Velvet Shake and Iced Tiramisu Shake, I was speculating about the taste and quality of the beverages. As I love the taste of Red Velvet cake and Tiramisu, so I knew that if they make it well, it would be delightful experience to enjoy my drinks. So, no wonder that they made it really well and my expectations from them were absolutely correct. I loved both the drinks and would recommend them.

Barbeque Chicken Wings was delicious and cooked to perfection. It’s a worth trying it at Mobydick. The sauce was good and flavourful. I’m a fan of Chicken Wings and this is definitely a good one, the taste was slightly sweet and smoky.

Kasundi Fish was pleasing to the eye and tongue. It’s a Bengali-style Basa fish starter, which had the essence of Kasundi, which is a Bengali mustard sauce. I really like Kasundi and its pungent flavour, so it’s always there in my kitchen. I had high expectations from this dish, and it lived up to its name. Although, the flavour and aroma of mustard is there in it, but it doesn’t overpower the fish and doesn’t make it pungent, which is good as you get the taste of fish as well.

Double Pepper Lamb was hot and spicy! Recommended for people who love to eat spicy. But it’s not all, it has all the flavours and ingredients to justify its name. The mutton was tender and well cooked.

Mac n Cheese Samosa was appetizing! I loved the taste and the quality was also good. The stuffing inside was superb and made it a good to try item in starters from the menu.

Garlic Bread was absolutely lip-smacking, and its presentation was enticing. It was served like a pizza and I liked it. This is definitely an innovative way to present such a simple dish.

Nati Chicken Curry with Rice was slightly above average in taste. Although, they tried to make it the way it is supposed to be, and the authenticity was there to a good extent, but some chances of improvements are there. Perhaps, this is not a bad option as you get to taste the local cuisine at a cozy place that serves almost everything.

Philly Cheese Steak Burger was scrumptious. I liked it and the overall quality was good.

BBQ Chicken Steak was yummy, and it was served with garlic breads and salad. The chicken was well cooked, tender, and tasted very well. I liked the way they had presented the steak.

Grilled Lamb Steak was not impressive and although, the presentation was really good, I didn’t like the taste much.

Indonesian Curry Noodles was delightful, and I enjoyed having it. It was just perfect; the flavours and aroma were authentic, and the taste was too good.

Fettuccine is my favourite type of pasta and I always crave for it. It’s not easily available at every other restaurant so whenever I get a chance of having it, I make sure that I don’t miss it. Having said that, I found that Mobydick had Black Pepper Fettuccine Pasta with Wild Mushrooms in their menu, so I decided to try it. It was creamy and cheesy, too good to resist and an absolutely drool-worthy preparation. I loved the taste and quality and would recommend having it at this restaurant.

I am also a Thai food lover and have tried the authentic Thai food during my trip to Thailand. Some of the popular Thai recipes are already a part of Mobydick’s kitchen, so I wanted to try out something. Keeping this in mind, I ordered their Thai Green Veg Curry. The aroma was mouth-watering, and the taste was too good. It was a scrumptious and authentic preparation. I would call it as a must-try item at Mobydick.

Salted Caramel Cheesecake was a scrummy dessert that I had at Mobydick. It was fluffy, palatable, and its texture was perfect for a cheesecake.

Sizzling Brownie with Ice Cream was absolutely yummy. It came in the sizzler tray, and the brownie was sizzling and hot to justify its name. The Ice Cream, which was melting all over the brownie made it a really tasty preparation. I loved the taste and presentation.

Tiramisu was another favourite dessert that looked tempting and was toothsome.

AMBIENCE AND SERVICE

Ambience is classy with nice décor. They have two floors and ample seating area to accommodate a group of friends or big families. The setup is done nicely like a café with medium lighting that is neither too bright nor too dim.

Service was pleasant and prompt, they prepared everything quickly and served with a smile. The staff is polite and courteous, they also ensured that our experience is a good one.

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.
