So there are few places in Namma Bengaluru that flash my mind when it comes to describing the ideal nightspot for partying with DJs who are hosting parties, famous international and local bands coming down to play, various live performances and so on. Blue Frog is one among them, and with a location that is right at the centre of the city, it has managed to do extremely well even in the times of turmoil (read as highway alcohol ban and the dull period when church street was getting renovated) But then, Blue Frog being a casual lounge does offer an amazing array of food and cocktail options to choose from and this post here will give you all a quick glimpse of what a meal for two on a quiet Sunday afternoon looked like for me. Plus, they’ve got a new menu as well so let’s jump in straight to check out what it looks like.
The beverage section begins with the usual listing of drinks that you can have straight up, wines, classic cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks, the varieties available here covers almost all the bases and the prices are extremely competitive as well. What got me interested was the House Cocktail section that has 11 options to choose from, we had the Espresso Martini and Strawberry Basil Martini. They were refreshing and perfect for the weather, especially the Espresso Martini that was tweaked a bit by replacing the vodka with baileys. Vodka went well with the aromatic basil and succulent strawberry essence, these two cocktails will definitely be on my order list the next time I visit Blue Frog!
One glance at the food options here and you might be wondering that it is not very vast, but then when you carefully look at the menu you see that almost all the famous dishes, crowd favourites are included and to me this is good as you spend less time in ordering and at the same time get to enjoy your favourite dish.
Getting back to our meal, we first had the signature vegetarian dish that is hummus made from sprouts and served with Tikki and miniature pita breads, a preparation whose name I forgot 😛 Moving forward, we had the Beer Batter Fish and the Thai Spiced Chicken Tikka. Chicken Tikka comes with a slight twist, you get the much-needed change in the way it feels when you bite into the meat, and the flavours from the Thai spices go well with it.
The main course was Chicken Tikka Masala that is served with steamed rice and pita bread. The Tandoori Spiced Chicken in makhani gravy comes in XXL portions. I would recommend to order another portion of pita bread or rice to make full use of scrumptious gravy.
Wanted to take a break from continuous eating and thought we’ll take a pit stop, then came in the Bira White to provide that break 😀 Chef then sent in one of their signature preparations from the menu, the Naanza! These are everything you get on top of a pizza but with a base that is made from a typical Naan, it was really good, especially the amount of cheese and topping you get for 250-300 bucks makes it feel so much value for money. We had the Tandoori Chicken Tikka Naanza.
Dessert was Dates and Caramel Pudding with their speciality ice cream, vanilla flavoured that is treated with charcoal to make it look black, what a great way to end our lunch!
So overall, though Blue Frog caters to the party crowd in the evenings, it does have an amazing range of F&B options that are sure to please your taste buds. Do check them out people.
