WHAT THEHEEBEE SAYS :
We were invited for food tasting session at Fattoush by proprietor Mr. Abdullah on one friday. We started with lot of excitement from Electronic City to reach the restaurant located at Bannerghatta road. On the way rain greeted us and by the time we reached there it was a crazy downpour. But all the experience of splurging on delicious Middle Eastern Cuisine made everything else feel irrelevant.
AT THE FIRST STEP :
Fattoush is the latest buzz in the city among the restaurants serving Middle Eastern cuisine. ‘Fattoush’ is a Middle Eastern salad dish consisting of tomatoes, cucumber, and other vegetables together with croutons made from toasted pitta bread.
We reached the venue on time and were warmly greeted by Mr. Abdullah. He took us for a restaurant tour and helped us settle down. Two tables were set aside for us – one for dining and the other one ofcourse for photography!!! 🙂
The thing which created a ‘WOW’ factor was the designated ‘Children’s Play Area’ which they had set aside. It contains some toys, see-saw, chairs and a small plastic-balls play arena. This was very well thought of and among the very few restaurants in Bangalore having a separate ‘Children’s Play Area’!
It has a large dining area. Most beautiful part is the ribbed ceiling which creates a very soothing effect and makes the place look huge. There are two dining areas with almost similar ambiance. On one side there is a juice counter. One row of tables face directly on the Bannerghatta Road and we were having a great time with the downpour going on.
THEHEEBEE TASTED :
Green Fair, Blue Orange, Mint Mojito, Passion Mojito, Raw Mango Shake, Sweet Mango Shake, Lady Mist.
Our most favorite one was Passion Mojito. It was created using passion fruit, very spicy chilli and Sabja seeds. The kind of kick which it gave was amazing and we could not resist but have one more at the end.
Next favorite among all was Lady Mist which was made using vanilla ice-cream and herbs. It was very refreshing and popular among the ladies and kids.
Next came a series of starters : Mutton Yoghurt, Sheesh Tawook, Malai Tikka, Mini Mix Tikka, Tiranga Paneer and Crispy Chili Babycorn.
The first two starters came as a surprise – hanging from the skewers. Very tender and perfectly marinated. Malai Tikka was again very tender and tasted excellent. Tiranga Paneer was a favorite among the vegetarians.
Red Dragon Chicken, Lal Maans, Pahadi Murg, Dal Tadka and Roti.
Lal Maans was heavenly. Very tender meat which was well spiced. It was made very delicately and up to perfection. Every spoon of it was delicious and finger licking. Lal Maans is a #mustHave at Fattoush.
Pahadi murg was tender and good in taste.
Dal Tadka was again voted high by the vegetarians.
We ended the dinner with Kabza Dejaj, Mandi Mutton and Black Pepper Chicken Rice.
Kabza Dejaj (Arabian Mutton Biryani) & Mandi Mutton were very different than any other rice preparation that we get around. You can feel the difference and the Middle Eastern feeling. It is amazing to know that the folks there eat it as a staple… need to plan a visit!! We#highlyRecommend these two dishes at Fattoush.
Wjen we were about to end, Mr. Abdullah inquired for desserts – ‘Would you like to have some Falooda?’!! I mean ‘Falooda’ and ‘?’ never goes along!! Just bring it on….
We were served two kind of Falooda – Royal Falooda and Dry Fruit Falooda! Both were damn delicious and could not had been any better end of the meal. We also ate Matka Kulfi, but it was nothing to Falooda!
Good thing is that they are sufficiently equipped on man-power. There are stewards and senior managers designated to look after different tables. They ensure of timely response and cleanliness.
It was a wonderful experience to try this cuisine from the other part of the world!!
