We’ve been away for a while. But back now with the latest on places to eat, new restaurants, scrumptious recipes, food festivals and all the other hot ‘food khabar’

And to set things rolling  – BLIMEY!  which is not just an exclamation of surprise but a trendy new place in town.  This quirky Irish gastropub is located at the 5th level of 1 MG Road.  Ceiling to floor glass windows allow for a great view of the city especially if you sit on the Ulsoor lake side. (Quick Tip – Tables W5, W6, W7…will give you the lake view). They also have seating in the open terrace but we went for lunch so we chose to sit downstairs.

The menu had a wide array of stuff. We dived into some beer batter onion rings – an ‘Onion Ring Tower’ to be more specific. Though the number of rings for a ‘tower’ seemed pretty less (maybe 5 – 6 rings), they were pretty good.

The Fish and Chips was outstanding – fresh and light, yet crisp and golden brown! I loved it.  Served with tartare sauce and other dips which were quite nice.  We also had the Chicken Baps which is basically curried shreds of chicken in a bun with fries and coleslaw which was very good.

The menu has some other interesting stuff – Chicken Crok pot, Tuna Melt Twist, Boxty (Irish Pancakes) and some other steaks and stews, pastas,  that looked interesting. Desserts included Creme Brulee, Chocolate Marquise and of course Baileys Irish Cheesecake!

Definitely recommend the Blimey! experience.
