Restaurant experience: Kobe Sizzlers

Restaurant Name: Kobes Sizzlers
Place: Kormangala, Bangalore, Karnataka

I had never been to a place before which specializes only in sizzlers. This was an interesting experience. Boiled, slightly charred vegetables and a patty with French fries were the common contents.  Ordering french fries instead of mashed potatoes was a good decision.

I ordered Vegetarian Satellite with rice! This is vegetarian sizzler with mushroom sauce, fresh cream and cheese.  It looked good but the white sauce and rice combination was not at all flavourful infact quite bland.  Can you see the big white piece of melted cheese? I bet you would be tempted.

Nevertheless, the vegetarian sizzler ordered by my husband was very tasty. He ordered Vegetarian Sizzler with schezwan sauce and noodles! It was spicy and tasty!

Though, it was a heavy meal we were tempted to order sizzling brownie with vanilla ice cream. Yummy 🙂

Verdict:
Service was good, yet brownie could have arrived earlier on the table. Also,  brownies are not supposed to be served so sizzling hot that almost half the chocolate gets burnt! Don’t order Vegetarian Satellite and definitely not with rice.

Mauritius food experience

Few days back, I was in Mauritius!  We were staying at Le Telfair Golf and Spa resort at the South Coast of the island. This resort is part of Heritage group of resorts. What a beautiful place to stay when in Mauritius.

I cannot forget the welcome drink (in above picture) given at the reception area when we arrived at the resort. It was delicious and extremely refreshing!!

We stayed in a room which faced the  beach and swimming pool.  The view was fabulous (image below)

I could write in lengths about the amazing beach of the resort (read: clean, long, no stones and different shades of blue colored water) or unbelievable hospitality/service at the resort.

But, I want to describe my fine dining experience during the stay. Le Telfair has a restaurant called Annabella. The restaurant has an entire French inspired/white paint wooden decor, which is actually the theme for the entire resort.  Besides Annabella, they have a restaurant named Ginja (beach facing tables), which has an Asian cuisine based Menu.  We were also lucky enough to have dining experience at La Chateau resort facing the golf course.

Usually a dinner comprised of starter, main course and a desert.  I have photos from one such dinner.

 We had a triangular shaped vegetable pattie bound by gelatin like substance.  A cold drink made from watercress leaves and plate decorated with chocolate sauce. In main course, I had the vegetarian option of spaghetti and tofu. The brown paste placed on tofu pieces is made from mushroom. Desert was coconut panacota, chocolate and vanilla flavor ice-cream with berries. Yummy!! In all it was a very tasty and unusual experience for an Indian palate. Enjoyed it thoroughly! I will end the post with this cake picture, prepared on occasion of Christmas.
