This All-day dining Café serves some of the best burgers in town. This Café in a prime location has got the beautiful ambiance. Still confused? I am referring to Café Felix at 1MG, Bangalore. Located on Level 5 at 1MG Mall near MG Road, this Café is a must visit place for good food. My recent visit to Café Felix was more than just interesting as they decided to go retro and came up with an ‘Old Classics Menu’ which is going to be there until this month end.
Winter is here and most of us can’t skip a bowl of hot soup while dining in a restaurant. We started off with ‘Potato and Leek Soup’ topped with bacon and it was damn good. We were all happy for that extra dose of bacon along with flavors of Chives, and truffle oil in the soup.
Toasted Ham and Potato Salad -After a delicious soup, this was an absolute bliss. We, ham and potato lovers vouch for this salad.
Prawn Cocktail -No shot glasses, please! Prawn Cocktail salad presentation was totally different from the one we get nowadays. True to the theme, this was served on a salad platter and the dish was so-so.
As were a small group we ordered different dishes and we ended up tasting some absolutely wonderful dishes. This includes Braised Lamb Shanks, Spanish Seafood Paella, Beer Battered Atlantic Cod and chips, and Crumb Fried Chicken. Star dish from the entire menu was the Lobster Thermidor with Gruyére and Crabcake Benedict. Who would expect a treasure (crabcake) while waiting for Lobster Thermidor? Though I am not sure about the quantity, Chef did a wonderful job by creating this dish.
If you have a sweet tooth like me, then head to Café Felix. I love the desserts at Café Felix, they always have my favorite desserts on display. Happy souls will never say no to desserts even after a heavy main course. I tried Caramel Custard, Tiramisu, English Trifle and Baked Alaska. We polished off these desserts within seconds. Fresh and finest fruits used on Caramel Custard and English Trifle, took this dishes to a different level.
I was not keen on trying any drinks from ‘The Classics’ menu, so settled with a glass of ‘Orange you glad you got this?’ which is nothing but a Vodka based drink with fresh Orange and basil.
Overall I had a great time checking out the Old fashioned menu and I would love to visit again for trying more dishes and some old favs. Chef Ritvik has done a wonderful job by creating this menu and it was so nice of him to take individual feedback from all the diners. A meal for two would be ₹1800/- (approximately). Check out some of my favorites from the previous visit to Cafe Felix :)
