Food Review: All things healthy and organic at Green Theory
Green Theory is a perfect place to unwind and catch up with your friends and family while you dig in the best from it's World Cuisine offerings.
The latest addition to the list of new restaurants in the city is ‘Green theory’. As the name suggests the restaurant aptly conceptualizes the ‘go green’ theory by staying true to the nature. Situated on Convent Road, this place comes as a boon to Bangaloreans who crave for a glimpse of lush greenery in the heart of the city. Green Theory has an extremely innovative concept and is the pet project of a young restaurateur Bikash Parik. He changed the entire look of a bungalow to make it a cafeteria boutique which boasts of everything organic in nature.
As you enter the bungalow you will be blown away by the lush greenery of its garden café called 'Gardenia'. This place will instantly make you dream of a rising sun in an orchard. And just a little further on the other side of the garden is another seating area (the gazebo) with comfortable low couches which overlooks the entire garden letting you glimpse at the Buddha statue which welcomes you at the entrance. We were so excited by the whole look of the outer space that we couldn’t wait to explore what was in store for us inside the Bungalow. The foyer of the house is turned into an organic boutique called 'Goodies' where the customers can buy organic products like coffee, tea, oils and spices. And a few steps inside the house we realized that Bikash has very comfortably changed the living area into a fine dining place. There's also a ‘Geek Corner’ where you can pick up a book or two to read while you dig into the delicacies.
There is another separate section which is solely dedicated for professionals who can have their business meetings. At Green theory there is something for everyone which also reflects in their extensive menu as well. “I have incorporated a vegetarian world cuisine menu which will cater to everyone’s taste buds,” says Bikash.
And definitely we were flabbergasted glancing through the menu which had just about everything from soups, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, burgers, pastas, sizzlers, and desserts. Their range of organic tea is seriously beyond imagination. We walked back to the gazebo and seated ourselves looking at the clear pleasant sky just when Bikash encouraged that we try the Zucchini soup mentioning it’s his favourite.
The soup was mildly flavoured and tastes luscious with dollops of cream. The next on the table was the Russian salad which satiated our cravings for the mayo. The fruits and veggies were freshly diced and each bite resonated that feeling. For the mains we sampled the pasta and a cottage cheese sizzler which came in generous quantities and were perfectly cooked and seasoned with their best organic spices. The beauty of organic spices is that it is never too strong and is beautifully aromatic. We were tempted to try the pizza but we settled to for an oreo cheese cake which could have been better.
Considering the restaurant is just a week old we aren’t complaining for sure. The pancake served in banana and maple syrup was a perfect end to our hearty ‘organic’ meal. After a gastronomic luncheon we were craving for their concoction of organic tea. We ordered the rose tea which was served beautifully in a glass garnished with rose petals. The tea undoubtedly tasted heavenly and yes it’s something you ought not to miss. Bikash and his team played the perfect host and that's something we will reckon for a very long time. And yes the scrumptious meal is bound to pull us there again and again.
A meal for two will cost you around Rs 600/- The restaurant is open from 11 am to 11pm. To get regular updates about Green Theory on your Blackberry phone add them on Pin: 218A28A6. Also find them on Facebook
