No.3, 80 ft road, 2 nd stage, Ashwath Nagar, Bangalore.
After a grueling week, we just wanted to get lost in some good music and food. Hammered was always on my must try list. So why not now I thought. Though the place is a bit far from our place, we drove all the way. What I feel happy about is that the drive didn’t go a waste.
Hammered is a bright, bubbly and fun place to be in. the ambience is so lively, even the most boring people enjoy here. Colourful seating arrangements, green plants, white walls filled with crazy one-liners, this is surely what you want on a boring weekend.
The staff was courteous and ever smiling. Much to our relief we got a table as soon as we entered. This place had positive vibes and I couldn’t wait to begin our lunch. We began with the classical Caesar salad. I hate salads, but this one I finished half much to my husband’s dismay. It was tasty, healthy and beautifully presented. Then came the juicy chicken wings. I just love chicken wings. And these were high in both quantity and taste. The chicken wings were drowning in peri peri sauce. You could opt for other sauces too. But this one was spicy, juicy and succulent.
The mila jula chicken kebab which came next just stole my heart. It came inside a toy truck kind of a thing. I just couldn’t stop looking at the thing. And, after taking a dozen of pictures, we dug into the trucks load. It was a combo of four kinds of chicken kebabs – chicken tikka, chicken haryali, chicken lollipop and chicken achari. I liked the tikka and achari. The barbeque sausage pizza was just out of the world.
I skipped dessert and instead took one of their freak shakes. The shake lived up to its name because it was huge, colourful and freaky. There were all kinds of sinful stuff in it – gems, ice cream, kit Kat, sprinklers, whipped cream, chocolate sauce and milk. I was in seventh heaven just by drinking this shake. Trust me, you must try it when you are at hammered. The freak shake had a little group of its own admirers when I posted its pic on Instagram. Some even went to Hammered within the next week!
Over all, this was a fun lunch with good music, tasty food and a wonderful company (my husband). Hope to go back soon. I give this place a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
