The Big Bang Theory
A brand new casual dining restaurant in Kammanahalli opens with the promise to serve the very best from its wood-fired oven and kitchen. The Californian owner at Rocket Pizza and Grill is on an earth bound mission to create an experience where science geeks like himself can kick back and enjoy quality entertainment, alongside a menu that serves comfort food.
So why Pizza?
“Pizza is such a staple of humanity since it was tossed in Italy in the 18th century,” says the owner.
“It flows in every direction of the Atlas after that. On the edge of the west coast, in California we made pizza global as an expression of our diversity. So it’s a privilege to get the chance to showcase pizza classics from my neighbourhood and to get to work on local varieties.”
The highlights include Döner kebabs, that revolve around Mediterranean, Moroccan and Italian flavours with slices of spiced meat or vegetables – harissa fish, shitake mushrooms, chicken tikka, lamb shawarma, mince offset with an in-house tzatziki or a spicy sauce, swaddled in pitta – A late night snack. The wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas, made with buffalo mozzarella and tomato sauce, baked in a wood fire oven until soft and aromatic, has a variety of toppings like asparagus, spinach, goats cheese, chipotle chicken, prawns, egg, ham, pineapple, pesto and more.
The restaurant offers an all-day dining menu with pocket friendly American breakfast options at Rs. 99/-that includes a spread of eggs, buttered toast, waffles and pancakes served with maple syrup, chocolate or fruit, or healthier options like a protein shake or a bowl of cereal. It also includes a variety of salads with a choice of crunchy greens, vegetables, fruit like sliced apples, arugula, roasted beetroot, finished with grated cheese, and nuts in a refreshing dressing of lime, orange, balsamic vinegar and more.
