This one is for foodies

THIS COASTAL city is a favourite among sailors from across the globe. But what the city was lacking for so many years was a sailors' bar. However, Mangalore has one that could be called a sailor's own place in a manner of speaking.

The new bar cum restaurant is Round the Clock at Bendoorwell Circle. It might not be one of the happening places in the city but it is on the way there, says Ravikumar, the proprietor.

But what's with the name? It sure reminds one of the Chuck Berry classic of the '60s, but the spirit that flows in the sailor's bar is brand new, Ravikumar says. A film artiste himself, he is also engaged in shipping and was once a sailor.

This small yet cosy restaurant, situated on the first floor of Plaza complex at Bendoorwell can be quite an addiction. The variety of food is mind-boggling as the platter boasts traditional Coorgi dishes and the pandhi curry, and various other pork dishes.

There is also continental, south Indian and coastal vegetarian and non-vegetarian stuff to pick from.

Check out crisp pachhile rawa fry (green mussels). And large fillets of seer fish cooked any which way you want, coated with rawa, masala, or deep fried. But the best part is the Indian bread section. Fluffy sannas in the company of the Kundapur chicken, akki rotis with hot chicken curry, and the very filling appams along with rice items are quite a variety to choose from.

The air-conditioned section is bit cluttered but can seat two families comfortably.

If one walks in with a purse of Rs. 800, one can wine and dine with three others without having to rush to the nearest ATM.

Round the Clock will soon have continental breakfast and introduce happy hours, Ravikumar promises.
