Fusion food is always a good idea to break monotony, but very few people manage to make fusion food taste good as it does require to fulfill 3 main parameters, guts, experience and good ingredients. At The Ocean Pearl, Mangalore these aspects would not be difficult to come by.
So we decided to give their Fusion food festival (at Coral) that is currently going on.
The first glance at the menu gave us fair idea that we were up for a surprise. So, let’s get right down to the details and tell you the top 3 dishes in each course:
Chicken Tikka Spring Roll
Quite juicy and stuffed will chicken, this Indian twist to you everyday spring roll will leave you pretty satisfied.
Egg & Shredded Tandoori Chicken Wrap
Though not very fusiony, this roll is massive in size and you can be rest assured that one will definitely leave you stuffed.
Golden Fried Veg Sheekh
Sheekh Kababs, dipped in golden batter and deep fried, a very awkward combination but the taste kind of grows on you.
Stir Fried Prawns in Curry Leaf & Cilantro
Sounds fancy? Don’t get confused, this dish in a twisted version of ghee roast but the masala is not at all spicy, goes well the unpolished rice and curry that it is served along with
Coriander & Chilli Infused Baked Veg Au-Gratin
Picture this, exotic veggies, laced with coriander and chilli, topped with cheese and gratinated, heaven right? That’s exactly what best describes this dish.
Available in both veg & non veg, this dish won’t disappoint anyone who has been craving for an Indian kick in a Arabbiata pasta! Eat pasta run fasta!
The desserts truly stole our hearts, and we wouldn’t mind coming back only for the desserts:
Carrot Halwasandwiched in between pie pastry and baked, YUM! Eat it like it’s hot!
Fresh Orange Kulfi
Orange flavored Kulfi, stuffed inside an orange, sounds impossible right? See it and taste it to believe it!
Gulab Jamun & Gajar Halwa Pastry
Wait? What? Well you read it right, Gulab Jamuns and Gajar Halwa, stuffed in between cake and cream! Now we can die peacefully!
On the whole, we would definitely give the fusion fest a thumbs up! It’s on till the 26th of this month so head there today and make the most of these once in a lifetime dishes!
