Street Mama – The new vibe

20180530_210621.jpgThere are few places where, the moment you enter you smile – Street Mama is such a place. I was not in town when this place opened its doors to all, however, the day I landed here, I felt I did not miss anything.

20180530_210629.jpgThis place gives a street café feel the moment you enter. As you walk inside, you will realize it has more than this view and there is a different vibe altogether.

There are different seating arrangements, an Amphitheatre like place, a regular restaurant and even a fine dining one.

20180530_232205.jpgThe bar is right in the middle catering to all the liquid requirements. There is another interesting way to quench your thirst– it’s a cart which keeps doing rounds, wherever you are sitting the cart comes to you and you can place your order. I ordered for a jalapeno mojito, which was served in a small cup and I absolutely loved it.

The drinks start as low as INR 100, which, in today’s terms is pretty pocket friendly. I have seen burnt wine priced at that range, however I did not get a chance to try my hands on them. Hopefully next time I am there, I will check those first.The cocktails here are referred to as ‘Street Chemistry’ and they are mind-blowing. We tried the following.

Pah Ya Mama‘  is a jamaican all time favourite,  dark rum and pineapple

Overall amazing cocktails and a special mention for Akash aka Masti who is the brain behind these cocktails.

Coming to the food , it is prepared and served right in front of our eyes, just like the road side food joints would do – except the fact that they are served in very thoughtfully chosen china.

As you know, this year Monsoon has already reached Bangalore. Even that evening it was drizzling. I chose the Amphitheater sort of sitting arrangement where I could see the junction right outside Garuda Mall.

20180530_224623.jpgThe Bangalore showers, nice drink, good side dishes as accomplice, really left me, very relaxed. I stretched my fatigued legs and watched the road for a long time. It was soothing after sometime. If I think of the situation now – I shall quote WW – “I gazed and gazed and little thought”

In terms of my overall experience with food and drinks, if you ask me – will I recommend this place to someone, without batting my eyelids I shall say “yes”. As part of the upcoming football world-cup they are also  planning a special Russian menu.So please visit and explore this “happy place” that’s what I would like to call this new hangout joint, right on top of Garuda Mall.
