At Sotally Tober first you take a drink. Then your food takes a drink. Together they take you on a tizzy tumble town the dairs. I mean, stares are there but there’s no need to care. Situated in Koramangala’s posh parts, Sotally Tober has great plans for you from breakfast till dinner.
To Err is Human; To Slur, Divine
After a week of saying all the right things the right way at work (and wrestling traffic) we decided to go all in. Sotally Tober’s potent cocktail menu stayed with us through every course, turning our tongues loose. For starters the vodka-based Pear Cobllins with thyme, and sparkling water with thoughtfully grated pear at the bottom appetized our palate. The Sotally Spice (Vodka with peri peri and mint) added fire power to our main course. We replaced other spirits in the cocktails as suggestions and experiments are always welcomed here. The spirits rose high in our body and we agreed to consider the dessert cocktails later.
Snacks To A Song
Continuing on our Vodka-filled voyage, we had the SoTo corn on the cob that came drizzled with Vodka and spices. An expected argument broke out among us about whether the potency of alcohol reduces when mixed with food. “Only if it is cooked,” shouted our nerd. Tipsy enough to test this, we had the Tech-illa Congress (peanut masala drizzled with Tequila) and Prawn Beer Bhajjis (south indian tempura). Slowly the paint spattered on the walls started to shimmer and time started to move at a cozy and comfortable pace as we started to sing.
The Best Southern Touchings
Meat cravings took over and the decision was unanimous to go south Indian. “Cheta Oru Beef” (malayalam for ‘bring one beef brother’) had all the undertones of being carefully home cooked on a wood fire in an earthen pot with the best Malabari spices and a coconut base. The Coorgi Pandi (pork) Chilli Fry melted in the mouth, thanks to the traditional recipe (overnight marination) being followed.
One Last Blurry Look
We gave the menu one last look and realised they offer weekend breakfast in different sizes (yes, some even laced with booze). Cumberbatch’s Favourite, God’s Own Breakfast (Appam Stew and more), Wake and Bake – all names that made us vow to return. With the Tober Chocolate Fudge Cocktail to top things off we reached the final stage of boozy – the heaviest drinker among us saying, “I’m still Sotally Tober”.
Quirk Tip– If you love prawns (and aren’t allergic) do try the Beer Prawn Bajjis which are easily the best prawn appetizers you’ll find in town.
