This minimalistic but tastefully done restaurant on St. Johns road is a delightful new spot for Bangalore's gourmet enthusiast. Their multi cuisine menu favours European style of food with the typical entree(starters soups and salads), mains and desserts classifications. Though not very extensive the food here needs to be tasted to be believed. In all my travels and food conquests over the country i have never come across another chef that can put simple ingredients on your plate in combinations, presented quite as well as it is here.
Everything from the ingredients to the small subtleties of how a particular dish and its accompaniments is planned and presented is an absolute joy to relish. Few restaurants understand how to treat their proteins (meat,fish, chicken seafood etc.) right in India i have been through many an overcooked steak that tasted like rubber and many and over cooked tasteless fillet of fish. At the pepper cafe though they know how to handle all their food and the quality of preparation reflects either a well trained and experienced chef or a foodie with unmatched passion for his trade.
If you are looking for something off the beaten track and refreshing change this is the place to go to in Bangalore. Some of my favorites on the menu include the Green apple Lemonade, The crab cakes, Spinach Humus with Pita, Butterfly beef steaks, grilled line caught basa. And a special mention to my two absolute favorite mains the Portuguese fish and the lamb and feta meat balls with tomato spaghetti.
The absolute icing on the cake is that this place is well worth the price they charge for the quality of food, it is reasonably priced to say the least.
P.S They also make some of the best pizzas in town traditional italian style thin crusted.
Pros: - Amazing menu (very Different)
Very Consistent food
Easy on the Pocket
