|Special Irish Swiss Roll Chicken|
With the increasing number of F&B establishments all around it is getting more difficult by the day to spot unique names. With that said, our recent visit was by invite to a bloggers tasting at a newly opened Resto-Bar in JP Nagar, Bangalore named Churchill’s!
The pubbing concept first originated in England and this impressive Resto-Bar tries to pay tribute to the one and only Winston Churchill, one of the greatest English Prime Ministers of all time.
A few words about the place: The interiors are classic with plenty of ambient light and woody finishes all around. It does not have air conditioning yet and ventilation is totally on ceiling fans and Mother Nature. The walls all around have original quotes from the man himself.
Now about the food: A very well planned spread yields expected results and in this case this meet was very well organized. The best part being we ate after photographs were taken so no interruptions while eating!
There were plenty of starters for non-vegetarians and only a few for vegetarians. So we will speak about the highlights only.

The Egg on Nest was pretty interesting for those who love eggs. In place of the yolk there was a sweet mayo filling and it tasted great but there was nothing outstanding about it.
The Paneer on Fire is a highly recommended dish if you are into paneer. The paneer is well done and soft and spicy. It tastes very difficult and a big thumbs up!
The Hara Bhara Kebab was excellent. It was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The stuffing was hot & spicy and it can be coined as a perfect snack.
The Butter Garlic Mushrooms were the best they can be. By character mushrooms do not suck in flavours but they just remain on top. The quantity was very impressive.
The Crispy Chicken Tenders were too thin. There were many in number but too much of crumb and too little chicken in each bite—not worth it.
Peri Peri Chicken Wings? Oh yes! This was a marvel and was done to perfection. It was spicy and the chicken literally fell off the bones. Perfect pairing with beer!
The Nagamese King Chilly Pork was another amazing preparation. It was not as spicy as expected but tasted brilliant. The pieces contained fat and meat unlike in other cases where it is totally fat.
They served 3 variants of Tandoori Chicken: Cheese, Hariyali and the Classic variant. The chicken was perfectly cooked and tender. All the 3 were spicy but the best part was that they were balanced. The Cheese variant tasted weird at first but it is something to slowly get used to.

They have an array of colourful cocktails but we ended up on the dry road and had the Blue Lagoon and a Mango mocktail. One suggestion to them would be to improve on their consistency.
The main course was not as colourful as the starters were but some items deserve a try and a retry.
Their Alfredo Pasta was well done. The sauce had good consistency and the quantity of toppings was sufficient.
The Copacabana Pizza deserves a special mention. The balance of the herbs, cheese and pork chunks were amazing and this topped the pizza charts for sure.
The English Fish & Chips was as expected. The presentation on the bed of fries looked appealing. No extra oil and the all mighty combo of tartar sauce and good fried fish always wins!
The Jolly Good Mix Grill was a combination of grilled lamb and chicken. The highlight of this was the lip smacking sauce.
Lastly, the Special Irish Swiss Roll Chicken was the dish of the tasting (sort of man of the match!). Excellent presentation and the taste was even better. It is sort of like a crepe with loads of chicken and baked with cheese. It is sinful but worth every bite!

That’s all from this tasting session. There were plenty of items and some of which we have intentionally left out as it is not possible to talk about everything and they lacked the special zing. Not that they tasted bad but if a Lemon & Coriander Chicken tastes excellent with the flavours of lemon & coriander there is nothing much to stress on ;)
From our side, we believe that this is definitely a good place to hang out with colleagues and friends. They serve good food, play good music and have a classy ambiance.
They are new on the block and still working on adding desserts to their menu so nothing for your sweet tooth yet.
The entire place is smoker friendly so if you can’t tolerate smoke: reconsider.
We’ll be back soon with another tasty foodventure.
Till then—keep rocking and bon apetit!
