Ever dreamt of having a place like Hard Rock Café? Well say hello to Eye of The Tiger, cozily tucked away at Tiger Circle in Manipal.
You, enter to a blast of ambience something you never expected to see before, only seeing it personally will make you believe it. Suddenly a famous statue in the middle of the floor attracts you, lo! Behold, its none other than the legend of rock FREDDIE MERCURY. This statue is truly a piece of art and it definitely catches your eye. Is the food as great as the place? Read on.
We started off slowly we had some soup, the French Onion soup, Spinach and Garlic soup were average but the Cream of Seafood soup is utterly delicious, before you realize it your bowl will be empty!
We ordered an array of starters from a few grills of fish and chicken which we deliciously prepared. But the ones that deserve Ultra special mention are the Stuffed Crispy Potato which is by far one of the best vegetarian starters we have ever had! Filled with soft black eyes beans with sauce and cheese on top done to perfection, crisp in every bite. Don’t leave without trying this. Next up were the Peri Peri Prawns, which were whole bodied huge prawns blended with the legenday peri peri seasoning, you have to try this. The Stuffed Mushroom we had next was a good one too. Honestly, the veg starters had won our hearts!
All this surprise had to be washed down with a drink. We ordered their special, “The Eye of The Tiger” which is a mixture of 8 spirits, generously topped with red bull and served in A HUGE MUG! Fit for a Hungry Man! This drink is expensive but worth every sip! As the taste and quality is uncompromised! Some good Mocktails we recommend are the Kiwi Virgin Mojito and the Banana Berry Shake!
Finally we created space to have the main course. We were recommended to have 3 of their best steaks as that’s what their specialized in. so we had Chicken Steak with Demi Glaze, Mutton Steak with demi glaze and finally a deboned Bbq chicken leg with Hawaiian BBq sauce. In 1 expression we’d say MIND BLOWING! All the preperations were extremely tasty. The chicken steak is undoubtedly the best in town. The bbq chicken is on the sweeter side due to the hawaian BBQ sauce. The mutton steak was excellent as it was combined with spice. Each serving comes with a serving of rice, 2 slices of garlic bread, veggies n yummy mashed potato. Very filling mind you!
Main course was great hence we expected an even greater desert! And boy were our expectations fulfilled. The first one is the spice bomb! A unique creation exclusive to this, which is made of a spicy Jalapeno patty and white chocolate mouse! (please ask the waiter instructions on how to eat it for maximum pleasure) this ladies and gentleman is the BOMB of deserts, try it and find out why! Also try the duet bar made up of peanut butter and chocolate another unique preparation.
We were very satisfied. Great food, great ambience, great drinks and Value for money! This is definitely one of the best Manipal has seen. Go here, you wont be disappointed.
