There is a feeling of warmth as soon as you step into Mustard, a cosy little cafe on 80 Feet Road, Koramangala. The cafe that was started by Lincy along with her husband Manoj offers some great food but it is the personal touch of the place that impresses one almost instantly. The couple take time off to socialise and understand the customers’ needs.

A great deal of thought has gone into naming the eatery. Lincy and Manoj confess that they reflected at length before zeroing in on the name.

“A mustard seed is very small but grows into a huge tree. We conceived this eatery to cater to the multiple needs of the urban young. We’ve chalked out a menu that promises to pamper the taste buds of the young. There is also a small library that stocks the choicest of books and a small recreation centre where people can just laze around and chat,” explains Lincy. 

Lincy was in the food industry for close to a decade and served in various capacities before she decided to give it up to start ‘Mustard.’ Manoj, a financial consultant, too left a corporate job to join Lincy in realising their passion for food and meeting people.

The menu includes a salad section, appetisers, main course, desserts and a host of beverages. Lincy explains that the smoked Caribbean jerk chicken wings served with garlic bread is popular with the regulars.

The other fast-moving dishes are grilled carolina mustard chicken drumsticks, tempura fish fingers and crispy fried chicken strips. The wraps slot includes grilled cottage cheese wrap and the chicken ‘tikka’ wrap. The pricing is reasonable and just perfect for a college-goer who wants to hop in for a quick something.

The dessert and beverage section has equally attractive things to offer. There is the chocolate walnut brownie served with vanilla ice cream. “This is home-made and the butter is replaced with oil for a healthy choice. We also don’t include cheese in all the dishes. However, we give it as an option,” adds Lincy.

The  Zoay’s Opera served with vanilla icecream is a must-try. Interestingly, in the beverages, two of the drinks — Zara’s pinacolada which is pineapple juice mixed with milk and cream and Eva’s strawberry punch has been named after the couple’s two daughters Zara and Eva. 

The eatery is located at No 1053 ,1st floor, 7th Main, 3rd Block, 80 Feet Road, Koramangala. The place is open from 12 pm to 10 pm. For details, call 9611132475 and 9611132479.
