What Makes It Awesome?

What more can I say about ebony that has not been told in the last 26 years of their glorious existence in barton centre. It’s a place every true blue Bangalorean has visited for the food & the views from barton centre.

But I can definitely write to change the misconception that it’s a buffet place that caters with a wide range of popular cuisine with amazing views. It is, but not many people know the legacy of the place specialising in Parsi, Konkan, Arcot & Nawabi cuisines. Thanks to the chefs, family members and managers who grew up with such amazing cuisine memories & influenced the menu over the years of their association with ebony.

Their new restaurant ebony in Whitefield chooses to celebrate these wide cuisines and celebrating the employees and family members who brought amazing dishes to us, through ebony. First, the decor is fabulous, bringing in an old world colonial charm with cement tiles, duck egg white walls, dark teal furniture, amazing bay windows, with indoor & outdoor seating. The menu is something to cherish for, simple, rustic & a back story to some of the fabulous dishes that are celebrated here.

Let me jump right into the food while sipping my virgin colada spiked with curry leaves & crushed black pepper [btw the drink was amazing]
I started off with a yummy mushroom Galouti Kebabs on an Ulta Tawa parantha. These melt in your mouth, smoky, tangy & delicious kebabs were delicious, albeit a little chunky.

My first time having Kakori Kebabs and am glad I had it here in ebony. Just fell in love with these soft, melt in your hand, dissolve in your mouth texture, which is something unheard of, even in a Galouti. This was an absolute delight to have and I believe truly this is how Kakori kebabs are made.

This unique Patiala Talli Kukkad. This hot n spicy Punjabi tikka spends double time in the tandoor, first time to cook the tender meat through, a second time with a crispy coating for a nice fried chicken layer in the tandoor without a deep fry. Unique, crispy, tasty tikkas, another must try here

Next, I tried the Arcot mutton chops. Beautiful slow cooked triple mutton chops in a simple Arcot Mudaliar Spice mix finished off in a Tawa with homemade ghee. Bold flavours on Lamb loved every bite of this delicious lamb preparation.

For mains, I was recommended the Mudaliar prawn pulao. Succulent prawns tossed in a pepper gravy and topped with light fluffy flavoursome and fragrant rice. The style is more like a pulao but the flavour profile can beat any biriyani variant. A must try here at ebony with the tomato Thokku served alongside.

With very little room for dessert, I still braved myself into trying the house-made tender coconut soufflé, a recipe perfected over 22 years. Nice and firm soufflé with the required tender coconut hit, with a base of jaggery (palm variant I suppose) and toasted coconut shards, with a topping of hot caramelised Kerala Nendram bananas, I was on tropical paradise heaven, perfect on a plate.

I can’t recommend this place more, this place celebrates food in its many forms, course after course serving only delicious food of excellent taste & quality. If you love food just be here and they will wow you with their delightful creations. It would take at least a few visits for me to explore their entire menu & start ordering my favourites, again and again.
