Travelling has always been a passion for me, and nothing gives me more satisfaction than exploring places and different culture. So your’s truly is in the Southern part of India, and I have to say, this part of the country is blessed with so much beauty! I’ll have a separate post to update you all on that, but this post is about the lovely restaurant that I reviewed in Mysore, on one drizzly evening.
In Mysore, you can find the best of the South Indian food, but if you want to eat some great north Indian food, than the options are few. Luckily for me, I got to know about Oyster Bay.
Oyster Bay is a foodie’s haven, especially if you have a bias for traditional north Indian food. They began with an Italiano pesto soup and a Three treasure dish,for starters. The three treasure, was essentially a dal papad (an Indian snack made out of lentils) with spicy vegetable fillings inside. Now who would’ve thought you could make use of a papad like that? Spicy and yummilicious it was finger licking good! After that, the Oyster Bay staff served me another spicy dish (Yes, they were told I have a weak spot for all things spicy ;)), called American chilly flakes, which was a green mix of super spicy vegetables with a serving of green salad on the side. I am sure the picture says the story, how delicious it was! For the main course I was served a subzi mazedar, which was again a mix of vegetables, and yet again spicy and delicious.
While the food was delicious, the dim lit ambience, with a water fountain by the side, enhanced the taste so much more! For anyone who is in Mysore and looking for a place for great food, Oyster Bay is the place to go to! So the next time you are Mysore, and are in a mood to spend a lovely romantic soiree with your loved one, I strongly recommend you visit this place once!
