2015 has been an exciting year for food in Bangalore. There has been a substantial increase in restaurants, pubs and lounges. Not to forget the star hotels that have also come up. Making the food industry very competitive. Chefs around Bangalore have striven more than ever to have innovative dishes on menu. One among the major trends of 2015 has been pub foods with a twist. We at My bar launched Chicken tikka Poutine, which has been overwhelming appreciated.
