I first heard of Tangerine, Sizzlers & More when it used to be in Indiranagar around 4 years back. We had celebrated our friend’s birthday there around 3 years back and really enjoyed the food there specially the steaks and the sizzlers. So when I saw around 2 years back that the cafe was closed in Indiranagar, I was really disappointed. I felt as if one of the best food joints of Indiranagar and Bangalore will be missed by foodies and food connoisseurs! But I was very happy to know sometime back that it had reopened in Koramangala near the busy Sony World Junction. I was really hoping to visit it soon to taste all my favorite steaks and sizzlers in the same way as before!
The cafe has wonderful views of the traffic outside specially during the evening times as there are full length glass windows. It gives a good feel of enjoying a relaxed time while the world passes you by. The decor is very minimalistic yet well light which gives you a cheerful and relaxed feel. We made ourselves comfortable with some wonderful mock tails like Blue Hawaiian and Tangerine Fizz.
In the starters, I particularly liked the non-vegetarian starters like Crab Cakes which were served with a capers dip and Garlic Lemon Prawns which were Tangy batter fried prawns with peppers and garlic. The prawns were very juicy but I felt maybe that Crab Cakes could have been a bit more juicer rather than being dry like the way they were. Another favorite of mine was the Take Five starter which is Chicken grilled with lemon grass, oregano and garlic. In vegetarian starters, there were Corn Fritters and Potato Skin which were very well received by my vegetarian friends.
In the main course, my wife tried out Jamaican Jerk Chicken which was very yummy and recommended to anybody visiting Tangerine. One of my friends ordered for the Fillet of Fish York which was not good at all as it was over fried and didn’t have any succulency left in it. Â I would avoid it next time. I personally went for Steak Peruvia which is tenderloin marinated in a red chilly & peanut paste, roasted bell peppers and topped with roasted garlic butter. I think it was a good choice as really loved the flavors and juiciness in this.
Vegetarians in my group tried Fricassee of mushroom and corn which was spiced mushroom and corn cajun style finished with cheeese, served on a bed of rice. Some others tried Panner and Corn Cutlet which is Grilled Paneer and Corn cutlets served with a cheese and pepper sauce. Another vegetarian dish was the Vegetable Shashlik which is mixed vegetable Shaslik marinated with yoghurt, grilled, served on a bed of rice with a mild curry sauce. I think the most favorite was the Spiced Mushroom and Corn Cajun Style Sizzler.
Desserts could have been better though. We could only try out Death by Chocolate which I personally didn’t enjoy so much as the chocolate was too bitter. Fresh fruit based desserts could have been there. But totally it was a wonderful gastronomical experience and very competitively priced Sizzlers make Tangerine an amazing place to hang out with friends and family!
