The good news is that The Fatty Bao, the Asian dining and fun bar experience that has taken Bangalore by storm, has come to town, located just next door to the pulsating Monkey Bar in Bandra.
Foodies and party people were in for a treat at the two celebratory evenings, hosted by Sabina and A D Singh, MD, Olive Bar and Kitchen along with celebrated chef Manu Chandra and Chetan Rampal, both partners of The Fatty Bao.
Tucked behind an unassuming red door lies this lazy, happy animal in its cozy abode. And into this abode were the guests who gushed at the assortment of delicious baos, melt-in-the-mouth pork belly, brie tempura, dim sums, ramen that went down perfectly with the signature cocktails on offer, like Bora Bora, Mickey Ninja and Fatty Sour.
They also admired the interiors designed by Anshu Arora with Ayeshe Sadr and Ishaan Dasgupta of 211 Studio joyfully contributing to bring alive the walls with art. The first painted work is an abstraction of a food map where the viewer takes a journey through the magical East, while being introduced to the ingredients and food. The paintings focus on beautiful ceramics and kitchen implements weaving them into the topography along with motifs, which tie it all together against the background of a dreamy landscape.
There is also a Samurai Panda with a quintessential peace offering to keep you company at the bar. Large glass windows offer views of surrounding greenery, while arches frame almost all private dining spaces, creating cozy nooks, yet maintaining a visual connect with the main space.
Seen relishing the fare and the merry mood of the place was Neha Dhupia, Rahul Bose, Eli Avram, Simone Singh, Fahad Samar, Konkona Sen Sharma, Dalip Tahil, Aparna Badlani, Surabhi and Nachiket Barve, Anil Chopra, Nisha and Vikram Raizada, Rashmi Nigam, Payal Kothari, Rajesh and Zeba Kohli, Ashiesh Raheja, Ujjwala Raut, Sangita Sinh Kathiwada, Seema and Jaideep Mehrotra, Deveika and Suresh Bhojwani, Shriya Saran, Kintu and Kishor Bajaj, Ponam Soni, Vishesh Bhatt and Sumeet Chopra among many more.
