Food for the soul

Adding yet another flavour to the diverse culinary landscape of Bengaluru is Bloomsbury’s Boutique Café and Artisan Bakery, their first ever outlet in the city.

With a menu is a mixture of hot food and artisan baked delicacies, the place features a perfect mix of  international comfort foods and world favourites as well as homemade pastries, desserts, cakes, cupcakes, cookies, puddings, tarts and more.

As you sink into the comfortable seats and take in the ambience, which is a mix of a casual cafe and a restaurant, you can give a leisurely start to your meal by choosing from the ‘nibbles’, salads and soups.  Choose from options like ‘chicken tikka and tomato bruschetta’, ‘Taco salad’, ‘Caesar salad’, ‘Roasted tomato and basil soup’ and more. Turn more pages of the menu and an array of choices beckon to you.

Under the section ‘Small plates’, a variety of bite-sized offerings like ‘paneer pops’, ‘chicken tenders’, ‘bang bang prawns’ and so on. A special recommendation is the ‘chicken sliders’, mini buns stuffed with crispy yet juicy chicken and south west chilli lime chicken patties.

For something more filling, turn to the burgers and pizzas which come in a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, with the ‘Slider chicken burger’ being an all-time favourite.

If you are really hungry, try one of the options under the ‘Big plates’ header.
Ranging from skewered Lebanese spiced lamb and Indonesian classic fried rice to ‘Prawn americano’ and the Italian veggie delight ‘Melazane parmigiana’, these are sure to take our tastebuds on a world tour. If you want to stick to something closer home, try the mouth watering ‘tikka masala’ or the ‘fish o’ chips’.

Next in line is the ‘pasta’ section, with its plentiful varieties bedecked with spaghetti, smoked chicken, broccoli, tomatoes, sausages, prawns, feta, olives, peppers and quite a few tangy sauces.

Wash the heavy meal down with a soothing beverage. Take your pick from shakes, fresh juices, iced teas and other concoctions.

And with a tag of an artisan bakery, the dessert section has to be the show stealer and it lives up to this expectation.

Spoil yourself silly with cheesecakes, chocolate cakes, red velvet cake,
chocolate mousse and many more.
