Pot o Noodles has found its second home in the premium locality of Lavelle Road after successfully spreading good word about Ramen Culture in its Indiranagar outlet. It is a place inspired by Ramen bars from across Japan and South East Asia. This new outlet is located above CCD which overlooks Biere Club and the famous Lamborghini showroom. The Ambiance is airy and brightly lit up, the entire place is filled with colorful walls with quirky Ramen quotes that manages to lighten up your mood.
Pot O Noodles has a menu that spans over dishes inspired by Ramen noodles, Ramen Burgers, Rou Jia Mos (aka Chinese Hamburger), Donburi which is elaborate Japanese inspired Meal in a bowl and various other Oriental specials. In short this place is going to satisfy all your Asian food cravings in a way that’s going to surprise you with the authenticity and rare set of dishes that can be ordered here.
Our lunch began with Roasted Chili Pork and Chicken Pot Stickers, the former had a nice saucy glaze on top which gave it a sweetish taste and the meat was cooked so well that we ended up asking for another one. Pot stickers in general are known as Chinese dumplings which are lightly browned by heating it in oil and cooked till they are crispy on the outside, we had Chicken Pot Sticker here where the meat filling was flavorful and it was further complimented by three sauces you see there.
Then came in the signature Ramen burgers, traditional bun here is replaced by crispy fried Ramen. These are thick and can get messy as the Ramen buns beautifully hold the layers of fried egg, cheese slices and Teriyaki chicken/Grilled Tofu and Mushroom (we had one veg and one non veg). The burger tends to get messy which is gooood and you do find few crunchy bites that give it a much needed contrast in the overall texture.
Like I mentioned this place serves certain items that are difficult to find elsewhere, Rou Jia Mos being one of them. These Chinese Hamburgers come in sets of two and are good tummy fillers, we had the Panko fried Mahi Mahi and Pork Belly. I loved the pork belly one, the meat had a nice punch of flavors which was dully subdued with the sweetness of bun that wraps the entire filling.
Next we had the Donburi and Ramen Bowls, these are one dish meals and comes in XL sized bowls!! You get Prawns, Fish and Calamari draped in Soft rice noodles which is then dipped in spicy coconut broth if you order the Seafood Ramen bowl. Orange Chicken on Stir fried Rice with Wilted Bok Choy was another colorful dish where the Chicken had a unique tinge of sweetness that went well with rice, it comes with a Sunny side up egg that gives the entire dish a buttery texture.
Dessert was Apple Cinnamon Rolls and Kaffir Lime Ice Cream (another unique item on their menu!). On the whole Pot o Noodles is one of those places that serve Asian food just like how it is supposed to be, the dishes here look elaborate and offers a treat to folks who love clicking food pictures 😀 Will I recommend this place for you next meal? A big YES!
