Daddy – Earthy and Quirky
Daddy is one of the newest additions in the Bangalore pub scene. Located in Indiranagar 12th Main road the whole building is lit up in the evening. The place is spread over two huge floors and the interiors are earthy as well as quirky. We sat in one of the side tables with a background of funny posters. One of the highlights of this place is the revolving bar area. The menu comprises of a variety of fusion, Indian and Continental dishes.
We started with some of their signature cocktails like the Berry Blast and the Porn Star Martini. While the Berry Blast is made up of infused rosemary flavors, berries, lime poured over cranberry juice. The Porn Star Martini is infused with vanilla, passion fruit, lime and vanilla sugar. Both the drinks were great in taste and the taste of fruits and flower came out really well. We also tried their Edamame and Cauliflower Soup. The soup was super creamy and had edamame beans in it.
The appetizers included Iced Caesar. The salad is made of Iceberg lettuce, creamy Caesar, olives and cherry tomatoes. The Dal Makhani Kulcha are stuffed butter kulcha served with sour cream and salsa. The Kulcha was delicious and the combo was a hit! Next came the Thai Basil Green curry dumplings. The dumplings are served with red chilli paste and a green curry paste which were amazing. Don’t miss out on the Chettinad Paneer Boa, a fusion dish with creamy paneer with loads of mustard seeds. The boa was soft and a bit sweet. The Mushroom and Pea canopies was out of the world. The dish is served on cripy bread pieces with soft and creamy mushroom and pea topping. The appetizers at Daddy are amazing and are perfect with a drink.
In the main course, we had the Grilled Mushroom Soft Polenta. The dish is made of creamy polenta on the sides with mushroom curry in the middle. We loved the combination. The Thai Red Curry with Rice was good in taste. The curry had variety of veggies and made with coconut milk and turmeric. Lastly, we tried their Cottage Cheese Steak and Jalapeno Salsa. The steak is grilled on pan and served with salsa made of Jalapenos.
For desserts we tried the Melody Brownie and the Blueberry Blossom. The brownie was gooey and chocolaty, and is served with vanilla icecream. The Blueberry Blossom was made with blueberry cream instead of cheese. The cake was topped with poppy seeds to give a crunchy texture. The desserts quality could be significantly improved.
Overall, Daddy is the place to go with extraordinary appetizers and drinks.
