Fun, Food & Friends:

    The wonderful evening where we got to be apart of an amazing menu launch by Sous Chef - Joaquin Albarreal Sanctum

 Being in Bangalore for almost a decade I am not sure how i missed this place. As this is one of the best tapas bar i have visited, which serves quality food and head Bang Music. Coming back to food, I got an opportunity to taste the new menu which was set by the Chef and trust me it is amazing.

We Bloggers start the evening by few cocktails & I enjoyed the " All Time Special " Which had Cucumber slices with London Dry Gin. It didnt give a strong taste of alcohol but was smooth in every sip.

And after few minutes we were served the first dish from the menu " Broccoli and Almond Espresso "  with every sip on to your palette you will taste the creaminess from the espresso and Small bites of almond. To go with the espresso we were served the toasted bread with cheese and Broccoli as topping. It was just prefect !!

Between all this wonderful tasting the music played was just awesome. It perfectly blended with the evening and journey towards the next dish continued. 
It was time for the starters and for Veggies like me the chef had something different in stored for us. It was " Grilled Aubergine and Wild Rocket " in which the Aubergine was grilled to perfection and gave a sweet taste at the same time Rocket leaves are mixed with balsamic vinegar to cut the sourness of the leaves. As i am not a big rocket leaves fan i found that it didn't cut the sourness and actually gave a bit more bitter taste.

And so its was time to order another cocktail and hence went for " Jamaican " Which was a blend of Bacardi, Malibu, Fresh Mint and a hint of Citrus oil to give that Kick.


 In a few minutes we were served the Main Course which was " Beer Infused Grilled Chicken "  Though being a veggie i got to taste the Mashed potato and i was truly in love with it. it was creamier and made to perfection once again. The presentation of the dish caught a lot of eyes as well.

And we were served with 2 most wanted dishes in Sanctum - Beer Infused Grilled Chicken and Wild Mushroom Risotto with Truffle Oil.

It was Heaven for me to taste the most creamiest Risotto ever, totally Loved it.

The White Chocolate Mousse as the base and Liquid Mango Sphere on top, its's the ultimate combo that you will ever taste which is served along with apple fries and strawberry ketchup.
