Launch of the Retro Asian Brunch at High


High Ultra Lounge launched its Retro Asian Sunday Brunch followed by a record-breaking activity of Domino Trail of 421 Jägermeister shots. 
Here's a photo tour of the exciting afternoon interspersed with tasty food, pleasant weather and kite flying fun...


At the 32nd floor of the World Trade Center, High Ultra Lounge is south India's tallest lounge bar. The view is quite awesome...


The flirty sun peeked through the clouds...


And I sip the Raspberry iced tea and look around...


Colorful hats...


A counter where Jägermeister shots are poured. Jägermeister is a German digestif made with 56 herbs and spices at a strength of 35% alcohol...


Some yummy appetizers arrived...





The weather and the setting was wonderful...


Lemongrass infused fish was good...


Hot, freshly made Dim sums arrived... 


 Prawn dim sums are my favorite...


  The brunch featured many interesting cocktails...

The Sushi from the live food station was beautiful and nice...




Vodka...




For the mains I had Jasmine rice with the flavorful Thai red curry...


Dessert...


Meanwhile Jägermeister shots were carefully placed to attempt a Domino trail of 421 shots...



This is not easy...


The glasses started toppling one after the other and this new record, 'Domino Trail of 421 shots at 421 feet' will be featured in the next edition of Limca Book of World Records...


And here's my glass...


The activities, the atmosphere, the cocktails and the delicious food make this place ideal for a Sunday brunch with family. 
Leaving you with some beautiful smiles..




Better Ingredients Better Pizza

Papa John's claim to serve pizzas made from the freshest and best ingredients. According to them, safe, unbleached, high-protein flour is used to prepare the hand-tossed dough. The dough is always made fresh, and is never stored. I ordered some of their stuff to verify if better ingredients make better tasting pizza. 
Here's a photo tour...



Cheese sticks and potato wedges...


Oven baked tender Chicken Wings, marinated with secret spices and served with Barbeque sauce....


Chicken Super Papas - Premium Capsicum, Chicken Salami, Spicy Italian Chicken Sausage, Onions, Fresh Mushrooms and Black Olives, Chicken tikka layered on top of pizza sauce and smothered with Mozzarella cheese...


Fajita pizza is their signature tomato pizza sauce seasoned with tangy fajita spices, topped grilled chicken, fresh onions, green capsicum,  sweetcorn, mushrooms and jalapeno . Finished with mozzarella cheese and sprinkled with  with  mouth-watering  fajita seasoning...


Tandoori pizza is tomato pizza sauce, flavored with tandoori,  topped with grilled chicken,  red onions, green capsicum, golden corn, red paprika. Finished with mozzarella cheese...


Garden salad has Iceberg Lettuce,  Red Onions, Tomatoes, green capsicum, red cabbage and golden corn with Thousand Island Dressing...


Royal flavour of Zaffran pizza with Mozzerella cheese, green capsicum, red onions, chicken keema and chicken tikka topped with unique zaffran sauce. This remains my favorite...

Choco mousse cup...


The verdict: The ingredients definitely looked fresh as they claimed and some of the pizzas were really interesting in terms of flavor with right amount of toppings and cheese.

New menu at Cafe Mangii


A change of season always brings with it a new menu at Café Mangii, the charming Italian restaurant in Orion Mall, Bangalore. I have been here so many times and always look forward to the new gourmet additions in their menu at the beginning of every season. 

Here is a photo tour of the new magical menu additions, this summer...


Lemon iced tea...



They served Plateau De Fromage at the beginning of the meal and it appeared to be a mixup as the cheese platter is typically served after the main course. 
But I was glad to have the fine assortment of cheese at the beginning as I wouldn't have had any appetite left after the main course. 
The fine cheese included Brie, Emmental, Cheddar, Chèvre served along with Walnuts, Gala Grapes, cured Olives, Crostini and Grissini...


The delicately flavored Potage Parmentier (Creamy leek and Potato soup) was good. The spinach crisps were an interesting improver...


Roasted red pepper soup with Melba toast...


Mini watermelon cups were cute little watermelon cubes filled with Feta fondue, Arugula, Pine nut and aged Balsamic reduction...


Strawberry and Guava cooler...


Cranberry Apple salad was a crisp celery fennel slaw with Gala Apples, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds and honey dijon dressing. It was simple and refreshing...


The small plate appetizers  (left to right) were 
1. Jerk chicken Olivetti - Scotch bonnet peppers fumed chicken supreme served with Jerk Mayo and Pina Colada dip,
2. Chicken envelope - Scamorza gorged Bacon chicken blanket, slow-smoked barbecue basted in an Apricot Orange glaze
3. Baked Jalapeno molten - Creamy stuffed Jalapenos, salsa verde, sweet paprika and garlic dipping sauce
4. Crostini di polenta - Grilled Parmesan Polenta cakes, peperonata and Chive Aioli
5. Gorged Mushrroms -Herbed cream cheese and parmesan stuffed mushrooms in smudged barbecue...
