Harry's - KoramangalaTuesday, September 09, 2014Me! In words
Sudhakar had the Sex on Pattaya Beach - a drink that aims at bringing the tropics to your table. Light flavors of watermelon, lime, Bacardi Limon, soda and sprite fill up this glass for quite a refreshing drink. Do not miss the bit of watermelon that was in it - pickled in tequila, I say - talk about spicing things up a bit!
To nibble on, we moved on to one of Shatbhi's favorites on the menu - the chicken schnitzel - let me give you a few reasons why this has "favorite" potential written all over it - the chicken is tender - a tough thing to achieve when you are working with breast. The crumb coating is crisp enough to hear it when you bite into it. The butter will pave the way to cholesterol heaven - but am sure you couldn't be bothered with that.... reason enough?
It was meant to be a long, leisurely afternoon and we were being plied with good food and drink - nothing to complain about. Next up - probably a favorite of the duo - the Thai Fish Fingers - you may think that this looks like your average Chinese wok tossed fish, visually perhaps - but its the flavors that elevate - for all the fierceness of color - the flavors were mild, gentle and quite soothing for the robust drinks we were having. Good stuff!
Sam, the manager of Harry's in Bangalore had a favorite too and there was no way we were leaving without sampling that as well. And so the Jazz Burger made its large way to the table. A lamb burger with the works - sauteed onions, egg, salsa - everything you need to make a full meal and then some! My watch and rings came off - for those of you who have read my blog, you know I love to eat my burger messy and this one has all the juicy trappings of one.
If you have Darell on the table, you will be in the company of temptation himself - Now if someone tells you of a martini glass layered with shots of Bailey's Irish Cream, Kahlua and Blue Curacao over which is built a tower of a glass, over which is poured a flaming shot of sambuca and you have to shoot the drink through a straw - would you say no?? We didn't!!
So Harry's in Koramangala is a great place to kick back. Fingers crossed that the bar sustains the standards set by Shatbhi and Darell - I can so see the duo tweaking ears if they hear otherwise. An afternoon of serious binging may set up back approximately Rs 2500 for 2. The loos are clean. Valet parking is a super plus point for the location.
