Tom’s Restaurant has its roots since 1983 in Bangalore. They serve some authentic Mangalorean food in the city. Though I’m nowhere near in understanding the culinary arts of the Mangalore region, I totally loved the food served here!
I visited the Brigade Road outlet, located in the busiest streets yet gives you the vintage feels. I started my binging session with “Chicken Ghee Roast”, “Prawn Pepper Fry”, “Pork Dry Fry”, and, “Mutton Sukkah”. The prawns and mutton dish won my tastebuds. The blend of flavors was deliciously peculiar in all the dishes.
Well, my visit was a pure non-vegetarian one so can’t really comment on the vegetarian cuisines. For the main course, I had a “Kori Roti (Chicken Curry with Rice Wafers)”, this was something new for me. A “Seer Curry (Fish Curry) and Plain Rice”, and a “Tom’s Special Chicken with Appam”. Mangalorean food is all about the coconut, just the way I like. Non-veg food prepared in coconut curry is an absolute love for me. In the dessert, I had a “Choco Caramel Ganache” topped with ice-cream and a show-stopper “Creme Brulee”, it was classic and the yummiest I have had.
The ambiance is an old-style and a spacious one, with the seatings complementing it. I loved the use of glass all around, making way for the natural light in the day time. This is for sure one of my favorite eat-outs in Bangalore. I shall definitely visit multiple times!
