Dhaba by Claridges
Dhaba by Claridges Bangalore has been unveiled in Indiranagar who prefer to hang out at more casual haunts that serve great food. The menu, crafted especially by Chef Ravi Saxena, is divided into three parts – tawa, tandoor and patila, and includes typical rustic dishes like Kanastari Baingan (Baingan ka Bharta served in a copper canister), Dhaba Chilli Chicken, Balti Meat and Tandoori Mutton Chaap. Dhaba by Claridges doesn’t just have a bar – it has a complete Theka, which apart from being well-stocked with IMFL and imported liquor, also boasts of signature cocktails – speciality tharras which come in actual Pauva bottles!
A meal here is rounded off with Desi Paan made by the legendary Panditji, whose shop outside The Claridges Hotel is as iconic as the hotel itself.
Intriguing kitsch elements come together to recreate the ambiance of a signature highway eatery – nalka chandeliers, nimbu-mirchi lights, vintage Bollywood posters, rustic interiors, truck art elements and an actual truck that you can enjoy your meal on – all enhanced with the masala of Bollywood music. And if you stick around long enough, you may also witness the staff breaking into a dance when the song of the month comes on!
Twenty nine years after establishing the iconic Dhaba inside the hotel, Claridges is set to recreate the same magic again – but with a twist. The Claridges has now brought this unique dining experience outside the hotel premises, presenting the quintessential Dhaba in a lighter and more fun ambiance.
