PinXX - Dickenson Road, Bangalore

DessertPinxx is the 24 hour coffee shop in Central Park hotel. [info]mannu and I had a second dinner cum breakfast there a little while ago — an appam with bacon and cheese, and another with chicken tikka, followed by coffee.

The place is quite nice looking. Good decor, nice music - even at 3am. They have a bowl of water with a flower floating on it on every table, and well, the place is all pink... enough to remind you of its name, but not enough to hit you in the head. The washrooms are labelled XX and XY - after the human gender chromosomes, and the basins are large bowls. Quite interesting in all.

When we got there, the tables were already ready for breakfast. There was butter, jam and marmalade at every table, and tea cups with tea bags on the side.

The appams were tasty, and the coconut gravy was really good, as were the two chutneys, one coconut based (green) and the other tomato based (orange). We felt that the quantity of meat was a tad insufficient though - especially for the price. The coffee (filter) was good.

I guess the price reflects the decor, and the fact that you are in a large hotel.

They have a breakfast buffet from 6:30am to 10:30am, I believe it's for Rs.165, and at lunch time there's a multi-cuisine lunch buffet.

Blues rates it:
Food - Quite nice
Service - Good
Price - Very high
Decor - Excellent
Overall - Great place if you can afford it, breakfast should be nice

Recommendation - If you're earning well, or you have a hot date who isn't into dancing, then this is one of the places you should visit. The bar closes early though.

Getting there:

Get to Manipal Centre on Dickenson Road, just off MG Road. Central Park hotel is at the back of Manipal Centre - the entrance is right at the back. Pinxx is on the first floor on the inside.

Sounds cool. Appam with bacon - me want.

Reading this a month late :(. Do you cross post in the other journal?

The appams were great, but quantity was not that much. We should prolly try making these things on our own. I'll try it at home when I set my stove up again.

I don't crosspost always.

If only I had kitchen access :(. Keep us informed on experiments.

How do you want to (of course, assuming it is ok) post on sigfood? Idea is to minimize effort. Saw my recent green signal mail?

I'll start posting soon. Too much load at the moment.

No worries or insistence about writing reviews. More interested in comments and directions the thing should take. Not at the cost of work time for sure.
