barbeque desserts unlimited-buffets

Barbeque Nation @ Rajajinagar with Disco King Bappi Lahiri!

Whenever we think of unlimited buffet, Barbeque Nation is the name that pops right up! Barbeque Nation started their journey sometime in the mid-2006 with the concept of do-it-yourself (DIY) cuisine involving the live-grill on the table for the foodies to have the joy of grilling. This year being their 10th anniversary, they’ve decided to extend to potential areas which they’d missed earlier. As a part of this expansion, they’ve opened a new outlet in West Gate Mall, Rajajinagar – a place within the reach of our neighborhood. We got an invite to witness the inauguration of the outlet with the Disco King Bappi Lahiri starting off the live grill and performing the Disco Barbecue and a couple of other songs to entertain the crowd.

When asked what Bappi Lahiri feels about Barbeque Nation, this is what he had to say – “I am passionate about food and particularly enjoy barbeques. I think Barbeque Nation captures the essence of a barbeque quite well – not just the delicious smoky flavour of food grilled over charcoals, but also the relaxed and friendly atmosphere that accompanies barbeque parties everywhere. I am sure that this outlet, like others across the country, will appeal to food lovers of Bengaluru.”

We started our meal with quite a good appetizers. Virgin mojito, lime soda and Alphonso mango-flavoured iced tea. The iced tea tasted really good.

The unlimited buffet consists of a long list of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Starters like Pasta Steak with Sweet Chilly Sauce, Coastal Barbeque Fish and Fried Chicken Wings in Schezwan Sauce deserve a special mention.
Mediterranean Chicken which was well marinated and grilling just makes it a good try! Kalmi Kebab is a leg piece cooked in special kebab masala, a good start along with the barbecue skewers.

For veg starters we had spicy potato and crispy corn chilli pepper. Crispy corn being our all time favorite. It was perfectly fried and tasted just right on our taste buds.
Apart from this, live grill on the table added to the list of starters. Mix-veggies, pineapple, mushroom, corn, cottage cheese were on the skewers.

The main course has a number of mouth-watering dishes ranging from Corn Mushroom and Mutter Tamatar to West Coast Fish Curry and Roasted Chicken in demi glaze sauce. They offer Hyderabadi Vegetarian Dum Biryani and Kadai Paneer too. Overall, the main course dishes were tummy filling and tasty 🙂

Desserts are the best part of any meal. We had a wide range of desserts to munch on. We tried few cold cakes , caramel pudding, malai phirni, gulab jamoon and gajar-ka-halwa with vanilla ice cream. Interesting thing here was the LIVE KULFI COUNTER. We got to witness many varieties being served as we were in the queue. Tasted the chef’s choice kulfi. Kesar badam kulfi diced into equal pieces with condensed milk and rooh-afza on it. Topped with falooda, vermicelli & slices of badam & pista.

Ambience – The appearance and feel of the restaurant follows the basic design of Barbeque Nation which is rustic and casual, with wood and brick wall interiors. The Rajajinagar outlet can accommodate up to 128 people. Live-Grill on each table is a great way to keep any foodie excited. There’s live music square. The place gets crowded easily, so it’s recommended to have a reservation.

They’ve a main kitchen at HSR layout and a processing outlet in Indiranagar. They’ve experimented with royal dishes from all over the country and is brought under a single menu. The menu changes every week and all prices are inclusive of taxes, so what you see is what you pay!

Tandoori Malai Broccoli – A great dish to start off a royal meal! It is cooked in creamy malai mixed with few spices, and light fried in tandoori. The floret of broccoli is crunchy, packs spices and malai adds a cheesy texture to it.

Malai Paneer – Fresh paneer cooked with malai, cheese and ground cardamom. To make it tastier, it is topped with partial cheese dipped onion. The softness of paneer is carried by the creaminess of malai and cheese. A must try if you are a paneer lover!

Lamb Kebab Gorkhar – This dish is similar to Makhmali Murg Seekh, except for it’s made up of lamb and doesn’t have a cheese filling. The dish is said to be originated from Gorkha, a tribe of Nepal. Mince lamb, combined with spices and herbs, cooked in tandoor. The dish goes great with green chutney.

Nachini(Ragi) Bhutta Paratha – You got to try this even if you don’t like ragi. Ragi paratha stuffed with a mixture of potato & corn and cooked to perfect softness. A dish which can be consumed without any gravies but tastes great with all gravies they serve.

Murg Burrani – A garlic flavoured chicken leg piece marinated with spices and cooked in tandoor.
