What Makes It Awesome?

As the name suggests Sea Rock is a specialty restaurant serving quintessential sea-food dishes at affordable prices in the heart of Bangalore. Located in Seshadripuram, Sea Rock is a multi-storied restaurant wherein the decor is simple with walls covered with pictures depicting the traditional cuisine they specialize in. They also have a family section where larger groups can be accommodated with the utmost comfort. This restaurant was founded in 1985 and has been serving authentic Mangalorean dishes since then. They also serve liquor here which can be paired well with the scrumptious starters that they offer! If one plans to reach this place via Metro, the nearest station is Mantri square which is less than a km.

Coming to the food, I am always eager to know the dishes that are in the menu as I'm a vegetarian. But Sea Rock did surprise me with their wide offerings! Due to fertile soil and abundant water resources, most coastal states are treasure troves of vegetables and spices, many native to a particular region and Mangalore is one such place in Karnataka!
I had a 4-course meal consisting of appetizers, mains, drinks and desserts.

In appetizers, I decided to try the mushroom ghee roast and paneer ghee roast. These were extremely fresh and aromatic! Paneer Ghee Roast is a fiery red, tangy, and spicy gravy with a flavor of clarified ghee in which the spices are roasted to perfection. The same goes for mushroom ghee roast wherein they use button mushrooms here.

In mains - Pandengi Gassi, Neer dosa and Palak rice were recommended to try here. Pandengi Gassi which is green moong dal gravy is a native Karnataka dish that is had as an accompaniment. This complemented really well with the hot and delicious Neer dosa! Neer dosa can also be had with the ghee roast dishes here. Palak rice is a delicious combination of rice, palak and everyday spices which was very homely to taste.

To end the meal, they serve Ragi Manni which is an Indian take on Panna Cota and is a traditional, healthy dessert made with ragi finger millets, sugar and milk that originates from Karnataka. This pudding with its jelly-like texture tastes great when served chilled!
