Grilled Pomfret and Fried Prawns – just taking those names makes my mouth water! If there is one type of food that I could eat for the rest of my life, it is seafood. Call me a seafood connoisseur as I have gone all around Bangalore looking for the best and freshest seafood delicacies. Here are the 5 seafood dishes that you must try at different restaurants in Bangalore.
Raw Oysters at Fort Kochi, MG Road
Don’t get worked up yet – although the name of this dish is Raw Oysters, you aren’t actually served anything raw. Fort Kochi is known for serving some of the best seafood in Bangalore, and these oysters are oh-so-fresh! The main thing that makes this dish so mouthwatering is the red wine and shallot sauce that these oysters are cooked in.
Fish Biryani at Fishland, Majestic
Fish and Biryani – talk about a mouthwatering and palate-pleasing combination! Order Fish Biryani at Fishland and you will keep coming back for seconds and thirds. I cannot decide whether it is the marinated fish or the fragrant rice that is cooked perfectly that is responsible for making this seafood dish so tempting.
Stuffed Fried Fish at Carnival de Goa, Ulsoor
Whenever you think about seafood, the first state that comes to your mind is coastal Goa. If you want to enjoy the taste of Goa in Bangalore, head to Carnival de Goa. Indulge in a stuffed fried fish here, and you will be talking about it months later. You can choose between King Fish, Mackerel, and Pomfret, which is first stuffed with red Goan masala and then shallow-fried. It is cooked so well that the meat just melts in the mouth!
Mussels Rawa Fry at The Fisherman’s Wharf, Sarjapur Road
A well-known restaurant chain in Goa, The Fisherman’s Wharf is an outlet in Bangalore that is renowned for its authentic Goan food. Step into this restaurant and you will feel like you are at some seaside restaurant in Goa. Even though the Mussels Rawa Fry is a simple dish, it is finger-licking good. Perfect accompaniment to your drinks, don’t you think?
Khubey Sukkah at Mangalore Pearl, Frazer Town
If you have ever tried cooking clams before, you know they are difficult to get right – you never know if each and every clam is cooked properly. Mangalore Pearl has somehow found a trick that we are unaware of. The Khubey Sukkah here made with freshly grated coconuts is made of clams that are cooked to perfection – every single time!
