Grills, Gains, And Glasses Of Wine - Fitness Enthusiasts, Head To This Jayanagar Grillhouse
Protein Grillhouse in Jayanagar serves continental food, keeping in mind health goals and conscious eaters, and if you like none of it, just have some wine.
What Makes It Awesome
Has anyone given you grief for eating healthy or called your food boring because it's fitness focussed?Just take them to Protein Grillhouse in Jayanagar, because they’ve managed to marry taste and health, and even serve wine.
Right above Udupi Upahara and below a gym (literally halfway between food and fitness), the ambience is basic (brown and white colour scheme), with a well-stocked wine cabinet and what looked like a live kitchen. The menu mentions macros under the dish's name (don't take it lightly because they're more filling than they look), but don't let that put you off because food tastes pretty good. We tried the vegetarian nachos and enjoyed it for its freshness and is best shared. We then tried the Firecracker Chicken (honey baked chicken and roasted veggies) and Veg Veracruzana (grilled cottage cheese, Spanish rice, sour cream, and salsa) neither of which disappointed, though the honey glaze on the chicken would've tasted better with another pinch of salt. .
Even though we overestimated our appetite and struggled to finish the mains, we ordered drinks and dessert. The strawberry iced tea and the white wine-Berry Sangria were refreshing, and washed down the protein rich chocolate pancakes (which counts more as a heavy breakfast than a dessert for one) just reminding us of all the gym sessions we should've gone for. And if you do stay fit, then everything on the menu works for gains while tasting great.
What Could Be Better
In trying to stay healthy, some of their food might taste less flavourful compared to their more conventional counterparts due to minimal condiments and processed ingredients used.
If you have any dietary requirements, let them know and they'll modify the dish accordingly if possible.
