A new suburban spot for a weekend get-together
MishMASH, a restobar in HSR Layout, offers locals a mix of Indian and European-inspired cuisines and cocktails in a pleasant, understated space.
We decided to dive into the drinks, starting with a fresh watermelon martini – vodka, Cointreau liqueur and juice. Then, Love for Sale – orange vodka, Cointreau, orange juice and passion fruit syrup. On the side, we nibbled on finger foods such as a mild Mangalorean pan-grilled chicken dish called chicken sukka and machli ki tikka — seer fish char-grilled in tandoori masala which we washed down with the death by chocolate — a heady whisky-based drink, a classic margarita and a perfectly balanced Bloody Mary. We also had the Amadeus — a sweet mocktail of apple juice, grape, peach and kiwi syrup that was like a refreshing fruit salad in a glass.
If you are done with starters, we recommend the pasta primavera — penne with sun-dried tomatoes and a creamy basil pesto. We also enjoyed the tequila-marinated chicken, cooked with a spicy tomato sauce, served with steamed rice and veggies and the methi murgh — a fenugreek-flavoured dish that was served with naan.
