The Yellow Submarine


No Beers Yet, But There's Pork Noodles & Rogan Gosht To Be Had At This New Brewery

The Yellow Submarine, a newly-opened, Beatles-themed brewery on Bannerghatta Road, puts a delightful spin on familiar dishes. Once their brewery opens, there’s nothing to stop them from rockin ‘n’ rollin, we reckon.

Chow Down

Dahi Kebabs, Oven Roasted Pumpkin Fettuccine, Stir Fried Pork in Burnt Garlic Noodles, Rogan Gosht, and Housemade Snicker Bar

Sip On

Their liquor licence should come through in a week’s time. For now you can stick to mocktails or colas.

Winning For…

They have a real knack for taking classic dishes and elevating them with a few modern twists or with varying cooking techniques. Plus, the breezy rooftop ambience and the attentive service. 

Lowdown On The Ambience

Located right opposite IIM Bangalore {they are in the same building as Big Bazaar}, The Yellow Submarine makes for a charming rooftop spot. The place is pretty huge, so ideal for you and your squad. Of course, being Beatle-themed, you’ll spot plenty of odes to the rock ‘n’ roll band. The bar counter is a Yellow Submarine, there’s an Octopus Garden, and even a water cascade that evokes While My Guitar Gently Weeps.

What’s Brewing?

In about a week’s time, the brewery here is expected to swing into action. They’ve roped in St. Martin — a Belgian brand with a history of over a thousand years. The brewery will be accompanied with a full bar. But for now, there’s a flavour-loaded food menu to look forward to. If you are here on a warm summer night, the Cubed Watermelon Salad with Feta Cream will get you off to a great start. The chunks of sweet fruit come soaked in a slightly-spicy Sriracha Vinaigrette and the creamy feta cream adds a delicious, salty dimension. We also loved the almond-crusted Dahi Kebabs and the Malai Broccoli, that wins over even the most ardent broccoli-hater.

The Slow Cook

What we loved best about The Yellow Submarine’s culinary efforts is their willingness to go the extra mile. For example, with the Hoisin Pork Belly, the cut of meat is cooked for 8 hours before being presented with a pork and burnt garlic broth along with sauteed onions and bell peppers. The meat simply melts in your mouth although we found the broth a tad underwhelming. Similarly, the shank in the Rogan Gosht is cooked for 20 hours and simply falls of the bone with a gentle prod. These pair perfectly with the flaky Karachi Naan {the size of your arm} or their coconut stuffed Laccha Paratha.

The Stir Fried Pork Noodles will make for a great eat after a few rounds of beer. The slivers of meat coat the slight chewy hand-made noodles with just the right amount of grease. Also a great after-guzzle dish is the Oven Roasted Pumpkin Fettuccine with generous shavings of cheese {yep, made in-house}, flaked almonds and sweet, slow roasted pumpkin. Finish up, with their Housemade Snicker Bar — an airy, reinvention of the classic candy bar.

So, We’re Thinking...

For those of you, who don’t live around Bannerghatta Road, this is worth the trip! For those of you who do, we won’t be surprised if this fast becomes your hangout spot after a hard day’s night. Weekends will need reservations.
