F&B ≤ 330, a new bar in Indira Nagar with a unique concept
Everything on the menu is priced at Rs. 330 and below at this new establishment
A restaurant in the heart of happening Indira Nagar, but where everything on the menu is priced at Rs. 330 and below, seems too good to be true. But that’s exactly what newly opened F&B ≤ 330 is, just as the name suggests.
The place is colourful with fun and quirky interiors. The owner, Harish Lakhiani, has taken a global approach with the menu. “The dishes on the menu are from various parts of the world,” he says, adding, “You can see little flags next to the names of dishes, indicating their place of origin.”
The first dish on the table was the Shaken Masala Fries, a spicy Indian version of the classic fast food. They also offer Batter Fried Fries (yes, you read that right) and Pot Roast Fries. Next, we sampled a few dishes from their appetisers section. The Aloo Masala Samosas, are bite-sized mini versions of the much-loved Indian snack. Served with a mint and coriander chutney, these babies disappeared from the table very fast. The Japanese Wasabi Mushrooms were crunchy and the zing of Wasabi from the sauce made it a winner, especially with our sweet drinks. Other options from that section include American Cajun Shrimp Canapes, Middle Eastern Falafel and Indonesian Chicken Satay.
Moving on to the wrap section, we had a go at the Fajitas. The vegetables with the traditional Mexican spices were a hit. From their Flatbread section, we tried the Chilli Paneer version. What set the dish apart was the cheesy stuffed crust and the fresh basil topping. We wrapped up our meal with the Thai Green Curry — fragrant and subtly spiced.
The extensive drinks menu also has internationally-inspired signature cocktails. We tried, and loved, the Indian Doodh Ka Dhibba, a milky tea and rum drink served in a small milk jar. The Mango Lota, a mango based-drink and the Trashy Tourist a mix of whiskey, caramel and coffee, are some of our other recommendations. But our favourite was the Ramune section, which is the Japanese version of Banta or goli sodas — bottles of fizzy vodka. Try the thyme-flavoured one for a herby kick.
With its location and budget, and the laid-back atmosphere, F&B ≤ 330 makes a great entry into the bar and pub segment of the city.
