Bangalore restaurant reviews Breakfast

Breakfast in Bangalore: Isys

Thursday, September 17, 2009Me! In words

I had just landed back from Mangalore. I got off the train and realised that I seemed to have brought the rain with me. Anyways, since it was breakfast time, Sudhakar decided for us that we would head to Isys. I had this nagging feeling that this was an itch he was dying to scratch for a while now. The word Isys kept cropping up a few times in the last few conversations.

Anyways there we headed. And as last time, I loved the place. What I loved even more this time was that the non-vegetarian offerings were much much more. To start off - there was the health counter with lots of sprouts and green salads. Tomato juice was on offer to wash it all down. Hmmm... didn't really get around to eating from here since am not really a health freak. Figure I still have time for that.

The health counter begins

Next a counter that I can't really put a name to - it had a huge loaf of bread dusted with flour, and a selection of margarine and spreads for the health conscious. There was also a selection of sachets teas, all leaning towards Twinnings and its offerings.

Next came the vanilla milkshake and pineapple juice, the muffins and cupcakes, fresh cut fruit with watermelon being the most prominent, a choice of cereals with cold milk, sugar and honey. There was also a selection of cold cuts which was quite nice and a herb chicken which turned out to be quite dry.

Milkshakes, fruits, cold cuts

Muffins, cup cakes, croissants, doughnuts, cereals and milk

Going further was the toaster where you could get your bread done to your liking, an orange marmalade and then the counters of piping hot breakfast options. Idlies were of two types, masala and plain and there was coconut and tomato chutney as well as hot and nice sambhar to go with it. Next came the masala vadas as well as the medu vadas, crisp and generous in size. There was also plain and onion uttapam.

Moving on was the standard masala uppitu neatly shaped, pepper fried sausages and another semi-dry chicken whose name I forget. There was also an interesting pine-apple flavored french toast and yummy red beans to mop up with. A neat standalone counter for dosas with all the works and eggs made to order served well. Keep one thing in mind when you ask for a bullseye - say eggs done on one side and not bullseye or sunny side up - Only then will you get what you asked for.

The non-veg section

With all the additions since my last visit, I thought the price would have gone up. But no. it remained rock steady at Rs 110 per head all inclusive. The loos are clean. And just to repeat myself, this restaurant is a part of Hotel President in Jayanagar 3rd block. They also have an interesting theme restaurant called Gufha which I have reviewed in this blog.
