Drink Drank Drunk - Drunkling Sizzlers & Pub | Restaurant Review

Nothing Brings people together like good food .

Specially so when its for drinks and comfort food like sizzlers in this cozy weather in BLR .

Drunkling has opened doors recently where Yana Sizzlers used to be before
 in Koramangala 5th block .
A year back We were a regular ,at  Y
ana sizzlers .
Now the management  has changed and decor has been revamped but almost the same staff
So you know where to head for your sizzler cravings !

Ambiance :




Spread over 4 floors , first two floors is a  casual dining serving sizzlers and the 2nd floor being a intimate pub space and the last is a dance floor.
Higher you go , the higher you get ;-)!
The Décor is uncomplicated . Reminds me of the old Blore pubs , slightly influenced by English pubs unlike the lounge bars or bar cafes you find trending nowadays

Food :

Bar  Bites:

Red wine Sangria

Pop Corn Aglio Olio 
Red wine Sangria - Few sips down and  it grows on you. 
It went so well with Popcorn Aglio olio .
Popcorn made with olive oil and very well coated with a Masala made out of chilli , garlic & some herbs . Loved it .
Virgin Mojito

Chicken Kheema Bruschetta
Virgin Mojito An all time favorite .
Ordered Chicken Kheema Bruschetta to go with it.

Fruit Punch 

Draught Beer
we also had fruit punch & Draught Beers , Fruit punch was well made and refreshing .

Starters:

At a sizzler place I usually prefer to dig into the sizzler straight away , but since this is a new place wanted to give different dishes on the menu a try .
So glad  we did !

Lassoni Chicken Tikka 

Paneer Sholay
Lassoni Chicken Tikka and Paneer Sholay was succulent & delicious .Recommended  in the starters  section.

Hussaini Gobi

Achari Pineapple
Some of the vegetarians in the group also ordered Achari Pineapple and Hussaini Gobi

Pizza & Burgers :

Pepparoni Pizza 

Open Lamb Burger 
We tried the Pepparoni  pizza , slightly sweet Barbeque sauce pizza but it was delicious and also tried open lamb burger 

Sizzlers :

There was a time , every week we would end up going out for sizzlers .
Its our go to comfort food when there in a Nip in Bangalore air

I ordered Drunkling Special chicken sizzler with Noodles .
A generous portion with a good mix of veggies , noddles , chicken and Mash

Was too full to try more , but check out some of the  pictures.



Desserts :

Caramel Custard

Brownie & Icecream

We had the caramel custard & Brownie with vanilla icecream .
This dessert on sizzler would have been even better nevertheless a good one   .

Eating caramel custard after a long time was very satisfying and a nice end to the meal  . This is a good old favourite from old times .

Overall :
Like the saying Drink Drank Drunk , in no time we were a bunch of Drunklings having a good time .
You should head there soon with your brunch and let out the inner drunkling for a sizzling experience .


Till the Next time

The Rig is in town | Restaurant Review


Good Food  + Food Drinks + Good Friends = Good Times

At The Rig Good Times are guaranteed

Rig can be a bit of everything !
A party place on the weekends
A place to find a quiet corner somewhere amongst all the different spaces with your partner for lunch
A place to relish some amazing cocktails and bar bites with your gang .

Lucky you sarjapur folks , you have another happening massive place to Hangout !
But we are ready to put that extra effort to drive down as well !

So Bloreans , be hold – The Rig is in town .


Detailed Review: 

Ambience / Décor :  



This space is unique and interesting with 4 split levels of seating.
The décor is slightly  rustic  at the same time has  bit of Victorian classic elements like the vintage style doors & windows panels on an accent wall l   and the light posts in the outdoor seating area . 
It also has a sense of grandeur to it, like the large entry way and the main  door and almost a t triple  height central space .

I was blown away by the massiveness of the place . I think evening time the space might look really lively and buzzing  .

Drinks :

We were there on the first week of operation and were pleasantly surprised how well made the  drinks and food was .
Special mention to the cocktails . Really well made . Adding it to the Top five places for cocktails we have ever tried in Bangalore .


Big Boy Basil :
This was close to perfection . Just the way I like my cocktails.
Quirky and beautiful presentation
A  citrusy & sweet cocktail .
It’s a Rasberry and basil flavoured with Vodka blend


Lullby :
Another great cocktail .
A blend of pineapple , honey , whiskey and the golden touch of saffron !
Big shoutout to the Mixologist for coming up with such a nice range  !

Wake me up:
The Lemon Garnish took my heart away .
Simple yet beautiful just like the cocktail
A Mix of vanilla , Lime and white wine

Mimosa &Wine Based Cocktails

Shots :

Shots

Some of the good looking Cocktails

Mocktails
Coffee Based Cocktails
Food :

Very good range of bar bites .
My favourites :

Ranch Mac & Cheese Balls 

Ranch Mac & Cheese Balls :
I could eat a plate full and still not be satisfied . Just my kinda starter . Cheesy & crispy .
This was a popular starter on the table

Brandy Chicken Tikka

Brandy Chicken Tikka :

Most places I have tried flambe dishes , post flaming the dish with alcohol the dish turns soggy or excess alcohol gets infused making the dish a bit bitter.
But here they managed to get  this bang on !
The chicken was soft , juicy and the slight hint of brandy with the smokiness of the Tikka masala  made it a good dish  and a must try when here

Pizzas:

Chicken Sausage Pizza

Pepparoni Pizza


They  work so well with beer .
At rig they have managed to come up with good pizzas . They have a mild  desi – ness to them which works well with the drinks


Some of the starters we loved 

Some of the Main Course dishes

Desserts :

We tried 2 of the desserts . Both left me wanting for more .

Zauk e Shahi
Interesting innovation by the chef .
Gulab jamoon dunked in chocolate forming a  thin crust dipped inside a rich kesar rabri and accompanied by shahi tukda .
A must try when you are here

Torta de tres leches

It’s a popular Mexican desert , but I had not tried it anywhere else before in blore . I realy enjoyed this one .
Sponge Cake dunked in flavoured sweet  milk . Really makes the cake moist  and cuts down the sweetness from the cream on the cake .

We are sure the lovely range of cocktails and food has got you drooling .
Drop by and let us know your experience .

Stay Tuned for more
