Sated at Chef Plated

Away from the rush of the main street leading to Parkala from Manipal, situated in a little detour, is Chef Plated. At first glance, it appears rustic and unassuming with simple furniture and elegant wood décor, distinctive of a bistro café, a striking contrast to the flamboyant facades of a number of restaurants in town....

Ginger Garlic – A Review

There are quite a lot of places in Manipal that provide savoury food for all of our culinary needs.

Restaurant Review: Basil

When Basil opened its doors back as millennium turned, it must have been a very different place. But so was Manipal, and so was the world. Through the years, Basil has seen consistent reinvention even as the world around did the same, dispelling any possibility of going stale on the palate. Which is not to... Continue Reading →

Annapoorna: The Mess You Deserve

  Annapoorna. Situated in the shady crevice between 9th block and Manipal Institute of Jewellery Management, this mess has been the savior of students who have dared to go that extra half mile for hand-made rotis.

They also plan... Continue Reading →

With outlets both in Manipal and Udupi, we chose to review the latter.   Polar Bear serves a myriad of ice creams, sandwiches and shakes to suit virtually... Continue Reading →

Restaurant Review: De Mouths

The experience: A haven for those with a sweet tooth, De Mouths is a tiny ice cream parlor located in an easy-to-miss spot near AB5. The place exclusively serves Cream Bell ice creams, cold coffee, milkshakes, granitas, mojitos and lemonades. The ice cream sandwich is a specialty of Cream Bell and is truly addictive (from experience).... Continue Reading →

Restaurant Review: Sellfish

Sellfish was conceived as a gustatory tour of the aquatic world, and that shows in every fiber of the restaurant. The subtle aquamarine light dipping down on patrons and the pebbled wallpaper evoking clear rivers and beautiful riverbeds, all bolstered by soft rustling music creates an unique dining experience. The menu consists of exotic dishes,... Continue Reading →

Restaurant Review: Dollops

The experience: Dollops, once a movie hall and then an ice cream parlor, is now an iconic restaurant, serving Indian as well as Chinese, located right at the heart of Manipal. Exposed stone walls hung with posters of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Hendrix and Bob Marley, a skylight allowing natural light to filter in... Continue Reading →
