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.

Absolute Barbecue – 8th FBAB Meetup!

Our first visit to Absolute Barbecue, and this was as invitees for the 8th FBAB Meetup. We had heard a lot of good things about the outlet in Marathalli. So with same hopes we visited this outlet with many great foodie friends. Nevertheless, it reached our expectations and yes, we were happy with their service. This restaurant offers nothing more than a solid buffet. This place is like none other, offering an unlimited buffet on restaurant-wide dishes, no restrictions at all.

For veg starters, we had Vietnamese Grill, Mediterranean Mushroom and Paneer Rawal Pindi on the Live Grill. Veg Soup, American Cheesy Potato and Caramelized Pineapple were served separately.

On the veg main course list, they offered veg Dum Biryani, Corn Cheese Kofta, Achari Aloo, Bendi Fry, Dal Makani, Thai curry and few more options of curries with Plain Rice. Each recipe had a unique taste. We enjoyed the main course food. Except for the veg soup, everything else was pretty good in terms of taste.

On the non-veg main course list, they offered Chicken Biryani, Srilankan Shrimp Curry and a Fish Curry. Buns and Rotis were served common to both, along with the above-mentioned dishes. The Srilankan Shrimp Curry was simply amazing, and it went great with rice and biryani. The soup, however, had too much of garlic.

The desserts were one of the best which offered a lot of choices. We tried Phirnee, Paan Icecream, Pineapple Delight, Coconut Flan Celebration Pastry and Angoor Jamun.

The ambiance is one of the best. Live-Grill on each table is a great way to keep foodie excited. There’s live music at all times and the singer is amazing! They use plates with green/black colored stem to differentiate between veg/non-veg to avoid confusion. They refill the grill constantly and you won’t feel empty at any moment. The place gets crowded easily, so it’s recommended to have a reservation. The staff and management are friendly. If you use Google Maps, it shows directions to the back entrance of the building and it’s located on the 2nd floor. Thanks for the invite, Chef BB and Naveen Suresh 🙂
