For me being a nibbling Rat, the name The Pied Piper café, itself stirred an interest. But then I wonder, is this a trap to make me fall for their food? Hmph. I decided to go and meet the pipers.
Basically, I enjoy eating out and especially when they serve delicious food making my experience delectable. And, I must have said this so many times by now. Last week I headed to The Pied Piper café. You know, it is always fun and interesting to visit a newly opened café. As a food lover, the new cafés attract me. Particularly, to see if they have a sense of freshness and uniqueness in their outlook and menu.
Here it is.. Aged a month, The Pied Piper, a new start up café that sets one good example for a unique menu and a quaint ambiance.
The Pied Piper is situated amidst the hub of Cafés in Jyoti Nivas College road, Koramangala. And it needs a good level of confidence and courage to open a new one and that too with a limited space. Though small, the café has adequate tables for its customers and it looks like a garden café with potted plants as decor.
As we entered, we were greeted with a cheerful smile by its owner, Snigdha Swaroop, a software professional who left behind a comfy desk job to pursue her dream of opening a cafe. She named her café “The Pied Piper” because just as the pied piper had a rampant following of rats, she too wanted the cafe to attract a lot of food lovers. Well, definitely it caught my attention to have a joyful nibble.
What caught my eyes was the wooden tables and the large logo of The Pied Piper. The tables with paper windmills were just as playful as the logo and the ambiance was pleasing.
About the menu, they offer both Veg and Non Veg. They specialize in Sandwiches and Burgers with a fusion theme. Plus, lovers of Salads and Soups won't be disappointed too. The menu also has a decent selection of beverages. I loved the way she named her food. They are very quirky.
We were offered the Cafe's special. First they welcomed us with a delicious cup of Hot Chocolate and a glass of Lemonade. The richness of the Hot Chocolate would delight any chocolate lover and the Lemonade was perfect to quench our thirst.
After the welcome drink, they served us the choicest sandwiches of the cafe. Marty, a veg lovers' sandwich with all the winter vegetables such as Mushroom, Zucchini, Bell Pepper and Broccoli. Unlike the usual veg sandwich, this was really tasty.
We also had Must-A-Chicken sandwich, a yummy combo of Herb and Mustard Chicken and then Spiced BBQ Chicken sandwich, both packed with flavor.
Then we ordered a salad, Hakuna Matata, special of the day. It's a spin on veggies and fruits, which is light, crunchy and colorful.
We didn't want to leave before trying their burgers. We were served with Wicked, the spiced Mutton Mince burger. The bun was soft and the patty simply enslaved us. What made their food unique was the flavor of their sauce.
They are all Snigdha's fusion recipes and are sumptuous. They infact made us hungry and wanting for more. It was a wonderful food experience at The Pied Piper.
And for the finishing touch, came the dessert. Snigdha's very own Chocolate Brownie. It was sinfully extravagant and the presentation was salivating. Though our tummies were bursting we still managed to gobble it up.
Bangalore food lovers! If you happen to be in Koramangala or even elsewhere don't miss to visit The Pied Piper. It is a cool place to hangout with your friends and family. Because The Pied Piper plays yummy tunes to your tummy!
It costs around Rs. 500 for two. And yes, they offer home delivery too through different apps like RoadRunner etc. Would I go there again? Oh yeah, definitely I'd love to.
Rat enjoyed her nibbles at The Pied Piper!
