La Casa

This review is also available on burrp!

A no-frills, down-to-earth restaurant with a dash of eclectic and Old Bangalore thrown in, La Casa seems to be a favourite haunt of the budget college-goer as well as the 40-50 year old catching up with his friends over a mug of beer and Maharajah mix.

The décor is pretty non-descript and functional, with an outdoor seating area and an upstairs non-smoking section. Rock and roll classics from the 60s and 70s play in the background. The most interesting part about La Casa is the cuisine – pastas, mousakkas and steaks rub shoulders with fish tikkas, kebabs, aloo gobi, chopsueys, rice and naans. The chicken manchurian I tried was reasonably good, but was what even better was the main course, the chicken pepper steak. Covered in a thick white sauce, with a side of home fries, steamed vegetables and garlic bread, it hit the right spot and was delicious.

Desserts include baklava, brownies, sundaes and cakes. The chocolate walnut brownie had a nice homemade taste. La Casa serves beer, which my friend complained was not cold enough, and some interesting cocktails and mocktails.

La Casa is located at Chintal Plaza, 33rd Cross, 10th Main, 4th Block, Jayanagar, Bangalore, ph: 26554613, 26910732. Parking is on the street and a meal for two with a drink each is approximately Rs.550.

    Aaah.. La Casa, the only “hip” restaurant in the early ’80’s in Jayanagar… it is a credit to them that they have survived the test of time…
