Woodstok, Bangalore

I have been a little busy and plenty lazy this past month. This is the first of many overdue reviews. While Woodstok's decor screams artsy cafe, its menu is surprisingly dominated by unhealthy, greasy pub food.  The menu extends to several pages and includes pizzas, sizzlers, burgers, pastas and continental fare. 

The loaded potato skins with bacon is the sort of food that is sure to send your cholesterol sky-rocketting and lull you into a carb-induced high.

For mains Asma ordered the Chicken Marsala and I chose to sample the Veggie Pot Pie. The Pot Pie was a let down. So much cheese and cream sauce and a miniscule portion of vegetable hidden somewhere inside that cheesy, gooey mess. I have on many previous posts made it very clear that I don't believe in overpowering a dish with cheese. None of the other flavours even had a chance.

The Chicken Marsala, on the other hand, had a wonderful flavour. A light, subtle flavour in an understated wine sauce. It wasn't the kind that would blow you away but it will leave you content. Their desserts looked mediocre so we decided to give them the miss.

Portions at Woodstok are MASSIVE. Two people can easily split a starter and a main course and be happy. The food at Woodstok is also of the heavy variety. So be careful with what you order. Service at Woodstok is average. 

Woodstok isn't fine dining, it isn't the best restaurant in the world. But it is a nice place to have a heavy-duty lunch. 

Pricing: A meal at Woodstok will easily set you back by Rs. 600.

A big shout out to Asma for joining me.
