Morse code for “V”, Victory. Quite an unusual name for a pub, with quite an unusual ambience, three dots and dash has an amazing Tiki cocktail bar and a Polynesian food menu. One year after its opening, I was here for a new menu launch as a part of blogger’s table.
Starting with the ambience, I loved the theme of this place.Hawaiian theme, surrounded by bamboos and a coconut tree was very refreshing. A great place to hang out with friends. There is an open setting which is amazing on a breezy Bangalore evening and an indoor setting which is equally nice.
Three dots and a dash has an amazing cocktail menu from its tiki bar. I especially loved the presentation of cocktails over here. Some of the new drinks are Dark and Stormy, Rob’s Mistake, Fog Cutter and Pineapple Daiquiri. Most of them are rum based and are all served in beautiful Tiki mugs, which are very pleasing to the eyes. Rob’s mistake, a rum cocktail was my personal choice.
Amongst food, we started with Waldorf salad and lemon coriander soup. An odd thing to be on a pub menu, but this is something for that one health freak in the group. I liked the Waldorf salad but the soup had a zing missing.
The finger food here was delicious. I loved the Calfornia Spud, more popularly known as baked potato. The preparation was delicious both with chicken and vegetarian fillings. There is Vegetable croquet and herb cheese stuffed mushrooms amongst the vegetarian options. Both were delectable. For non-vegetarians, there was a tasty Polynesian baked fish, which is cooked in banana leaves as twist by the chef.
Vegetable tagine with Cous-Cous, a vegetarian preparation was the best dish on the menu. Spicy veg whole wheat and whole wheat chicken supreme pizzas were both delicious with generous toppings. Although Mazzi’s farm chicken, which was basically fried chicken with potato wedges and peri-peri dip, did not do it for me. I found it very dry.
Bailey’s & Rasberry Gateau was just amazing. It looked beautiful and was just delectable. Hawaiian Banana split with Vanilla Ice cream, however, missed a wow factor.
Over all, I loved the ambience, drinks and food. Slightly on the expensive side, but three dots and dash is a place worth visiting.
My rating: 3.5!
