Inorbit mall Whitefield, next to Marriott is in the league of high-end malls of Bengaluru to visit for a satisfying shopping experience as well as a culinary one. Running nearby to the giants like Phoenix and VR, Inorbit mall keeps surprising us with a hoard of events and culinary festivals.
After the successful conclusion of the Biryani and kebab festival, Inorbit is now running a Chilled and grilled festival, or also commonly being referred as Beer and Grill festival,sponsored by HQ, serving various Punjabi and mughlai grill delicacies as well as street food delights of north in a single open chilled space. To top it up, live music to render the patrons a soothing dining ambience is also arranged.
As we enter the mall open area, we are taken over by beautiful lighting and breezy ambience of the festival space. Round Chinese lights oscillate in the wind under the major canopy arranged for people to sit under and relish their grilled delights. Trees are covered with round rope lighting and we see a cool food truck from Wow Momos next to it.
All the mall’s food brands and restaurants have set up their kiosks and provide limited varieties in line with the festival theme.
We started with Being bites and tried their yummy drums of heaven, pepper chicken and chicken spring rolls. These were served on disposable plates with relevant sauce.
Next in line was the Square Table, the North Indian specialty place. We had lasuni murgh and tandoori murgh. Live tandoor was visible behind the kiosk where in brisk drizzling in Bangalore’s beautiful weather, they continued to tandoor the chicken and provide us soft chunky flavorsome bites.
Next was NH8, possibly my favorite counter. I tried chole kachori Chaat, dahi balle, badam milk and Jalebi from here. Badam milk was excellent here and adequately sweet. Jalebi if not best, definitely doesn’t disappoint. Dahi balle were excellent and I couldn’t help but take more than one bite. Chole and kachori were decent as well.
To render the street food touch, we tried cheesy pav bhaji, cholle bhature and gol gappe at Dilli Dil Se stall.
Similarly there were other participating brands like Marhaba, Southern spice, Organic ice cream counter, dominoes, McD, KFC, California burritos, petoo, WOW Momos, Indian tadka, Pizza hut , Only patanthas and our chocolate king -The chocolate heaven.
Also the newly launched place HQ didn’t hesitate to participate. It made the overall festival experience more worthwhile.
They provided us with delicious paneer tikka and chicken tikka in garlic mayo sauce.
They had arranged an extremely beautiful seating outside, where they serve the chilled beer, regular to craft whichever we like. We tried the ever famous Weiss Guy.
Drinks start from 99INR and a plate of barbeque and drinks costs roughly 299INR.
The festival will run for four days- 18-19th August and 25-26th August. Good food accompanied with mesmerising live music and breezy ambience, also in hand with a Beer, what else does one desire?
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at this festival and will look forward to future events hosted by Inorbit.
