Because of rat races all around, people work exceptionally hard to earn their daily bread (or at least most of us). Sometimes, it is best to let go, relax & unwind for better mental & psychological health. This time we experienced something very unique at one of our favourite go-to places in Bangalore: A Night of Comedy & Gastronomy!

Yes, you heard that right! The word comedy is loved by most as it is a light hearted mode of entertainment (with spare usage of abusive language) & laughter is good for the heart. This time around we were invited to Vivanta by Taj- Yeshwantpur to experience this one of a kind event.

Two well-known comedy veterans from Bangalore: Ahmed Shariff & Shadab Aziz tickled our funny bones till we were famished.

This was a complete package: the comedy show along with an exclusive Italian set menu dinner at Azure, curated by Exec Chef Agnimitra Sharma.

Without further ado, we’ll take you through the items we tried:

Pan Seared Scallops, Chicken Consommé, Grilled Indian Sea Bass, Roasted Tenderloin Rib Eye, Slow Cooked Lamb Shank for appetiser, soup & mains.

For dessert we tried Panna Cotta & the classic Tiramisu.

Each individual can pick any one out of the list & leave the rest to the chefs to please their palate.

The scallops were fresh & perfectly done. Generally they bear a typical seafood smell but in this case, nothing! The presentation was amazing. They were served on shells with ratatouille vegetables. It also had a sweet after taste.

The consommé was very appetising. This lukewarm soup did not have a thick consistency but was high on flavour. It had chicken tortellini in it with finely minced chicken. Tasted delightful!

Now for the mains:

The Indian sea bass or Tilapia was fresh & juicy. Generous amount of fish was served in this & the dish was well balanced. It had sautéed spinach, raisins & olives. Lastly, a bit of pine nuts for the extra crunch in each bite. The overall combination was smooth, well thought through & praise worthy.

The tenderloin chunk was massive in size. This preparation had cauliflower puree, spinach & braised potatoes. Yet another killer combination which tasted marvellous. Especially the cauliflower puree was lip smacking. The sauce had a homely feel to it. The only disappointment was that the medium rare tenderloin was over cooked.

Lastly, the lamb shanks were too good to be true. The meat was tender & perfectly cooked. Moreover, the sauce was to die for. The sauce was so good that it was very hard for us to keep our hands away & lick the plate clean. It was served with mashed potatoes.

We also had the chance to taste the Gnocchi. It had loads of Mozzarella & Parmesan. They were smooth & the taste was as expected. This was pretty heavy on the stomach compared to the above.

Dessert time:

The Tiramisu must be tried. The consistency was equal throughout & it had the right amount of sweetness. Moreover, judging from the taste of the mascarpone cheese, it was made fresh. The rich aroma & flavours of coffee & cacao were evident.

The panna cotta came last. It had the right wobble & it came with berry compote. This was served with thinly sliced fruits as well. Very light on the stomach, very smooth mouth feel & the perfect ending to a fab evening.

We had the perfect evening comprising of a heavy dose of laughter & a satisfying meal. Kudos to the Azure team for arranging such a unique event.

The AI price for the set dinner is 2000 INR. Similar events are soon to follow & these are open to the public, so what are you waiting for?

We recommend visiting for both the comedy & the food, because they were equally good.
