It’s that time of the year again when tosses are won, crazy cricket fans cheer their favorite teams and stadiums across the country get ready to host the most exciting cricket extravaganza - the T20 Series of 2018. Have you ever seen a menu which is exclusively on cricket theme? I came across one recently at Monkey Bar, Bengaluru as they have come up with an interesting T20 IPL special food menu, ‘Monkey Bar Full Toss’ menu clubbed with offers on drinks. It doesn’t matter whether you support RCB or Mumbai Indians or Kings XI Punjab; your team preference may change after tasting the scrumptious food which has interesting team names. IPL started early this month and just like it’s a celebration for Indians, Monkey Bar’s Full Toss menu live up to the expectations and keeps you going while you watch the match on their big screen. The special Full Toss menu is only available till May 27th 2018.
This time I tried the Watermelon Mojito while exploring the T20 special food and they also have options like Mangaa pitchers, shots, beers and Toss hour specials. The Watermelon Mojito was refreshing and it’s a perfect drink for the hot weather in namma ooru.
Inspired by the local favorites from around the country they have T20 inspired small plates menu which is perfect for the thrilling season. I tried the following –
Rajasthan Dahi ke Pithore – A melt-in-mouth combination of Semolina crusted hung curd and gram flour cakes on a bed of green peas masala served with sweet yogurt and date-tamarind chutney. While editing pics, my mouth was filled with water as this was one of my favorites.
Kolkata Fish Fry – If you’re a fish lover, then you must try this dish and because this dish is too good, you may not share it with anybody else for sure. The crumb-coated fried bhetki fillet served with Kasundi Mayo and Pui Shak (a Bengali side dish made of Malabar Spinach/Basella leaves).
Another favorite of mine from the menu was Delhi’s Butter Chicken Samosa. I was bowled over this one. The crispiness of Samosa and creamy, flavorful butter chicken filling was like match fixed :P The portion size was also good.
Chennai Pulled Pork Paniyaram – South Indian’s favorite Paniyaram got a twist in shape and taste with the addition of Pulled Pork spread. The rice crisps gave that extra crunchiness to this dish.
Hyderabadi Nagarjuna Chilli Chicken Roll – Nagarjuna inspired Chilli chicken in paratha wrap and served with coconut chutney was good but I would prefer it bit spicier.
Mumbai Malvani Chicken Tacos gave a desi twist to Multigrain Tacos with its tasty Malvani Chicken Sukka filling. This was served with coconut chutney.
Punjab Sarson Di Shammi - Sarson and Soy cooked with Punjabi Garam Masala and served with Makai Phulka. As Punjabis can’t avoid Ghee and aachar (pickle) from their food, this dish was served with a small bowl of ghee and pickle. A spoonful of ghee takes this dish to the next level.
Desserts are not part of the Full Toss menu, but when at Monkey Bar we can’t skip the desserts. We had the Cinnamon sugar dusted Churros with Mexican Chocolate Dip and Chocolate Pot De Crème with Salted Caramel.
Whether your favorite team will win or lose, I don’t know, but Monkey Bar’s Full Toss food will surely win your heart. You can also have loads and loads of fun by playing some indoor games like Beer Pong, Beer Relay, Flip the Bottle and Swing Shots. The T20 IPL special Full Toss menu is available till May 27th 2018.
