Thanks for the details. Without onion garnishings and other toppings haleem won't taste nice IMO

Yes even I had similar experience. Tried haleem in a local counter near JNC Koramangala and it tasted way better than pista house. May be not, may be I am fed up with same taste from pista house I am experiencing since years

Yesterday my wife and I went to The Fisherman's Wharf at Ambalipura.
We reached there at about 2.30 PM, so the crowd was less.

The place is beautifully arranged. They have divided the dining areas into various sections called Casa Sossegado, Casa Colva, Casa Dona Paula and a few more.

Sossegado means 'quiet' in Portuguese/Konkani. Doesn't really make sense because this is the first dining area you have to pass through!

We chose to sit in Casa Colva, since Colva beach is closest to our house in Gogol .

For starters, we had shrimp cocktail and rava fried king fish. I did not find anything extraordinary in the shrimp cocktail. Rava friend king fish, in my opinion, was a little over fried. It wasn't juicy. But my wife prefers it that way. Also, the dip served with the fish was good. It was a chutney made mainly from red chillies and vinegar.

For main course, we ordered fish curry rice that comes with king fish. The waiter was kind enough to let us know that it is sufficient for two!

We also ordered stuffed crab. We were disappointed with this dish. Crab meat was mixed with some condiments and filled into the back shell of a crab. Cheese was sprayed over it and the dish was baked. It wasn't what we imagined when the waiter had explained it to us saying this dish comes with the shell but is easy to eat.

We were pretty full by the end of main course, so we did not order dessert. I noticed only one Goan dessert in the menu, the Bebinca. I don't remember seeing Dodol or caramel custard.

And what to eat where, please! Want to go there tomorrow evening. Never been there, so no clue!

@shinuak, where exactly was this "nondescript stall"?

I had been there last week. Its a meat lovers paradise As given few threads back, head from coles road KFC (park your vehicle beside or oppsite to KFC)towards mosque road. Just as you cross the mosque there are plenty food stalls lined up. Frankly I could not taste even 20% of the food as an evening is too short. All the best, enjoy the food.

Waseem.
Try Patthar ka gosht at the Hyderabadi stall which is ahead of Savera.Haleem is pathetic at these stalls, so better stick to Pista house haleem which is sold at Fatima function hall, which is before Mcd.

Waseem

Millers 46 is very good for continental food and then Anjappar for traditional chettinad food. I went to the Koramanagla Anjappar and found the crab lollipop and grilled king fish to be really good.

It depends on your taste buds. There are so many of them.
I would say try each type (Hyderabadi, Moghlai, Afgani) and you can adventure into all kinds of meats like chicken, mutton, beef, camel, quail etc. They are available in all formats like curry, deep fry, tandoori, barbecue.
Also lot of treats for the sweet tooth.

Start at Chichabas restaurant and go all the way till Richies.

Waseem.

That bad, huh? I don't go anywhere near them after the biryani disappointment (quality, quantity)!

I am getting mutton Haleem (and the chicken version) from a lady called Mrs. Khizra Mueen this evening. Someone posted her ad in FB Foodies threads. Hope it is good. Also picking up some other stuff like Nargisi Kofte and Shikampuri kabab.

Do we get Murtabaq (chicken parotha?) in the fete?

Here's the ad:

Address:
Coronet Apartment,

Phone number is in the ad. Call in the morning (I guess she is too hassled with deliveries to pick up in the evening) - she needs a day's advance notice.

Visited the Mosque Road today at 5:30pm. Here is my brief review:

So, started off with Haleem at Pista Housa - For a first timer, It was nothing out of the world , maybe I was expecting something else.

Next, Pattar Gosht (Chicken) : Was decent, nothing to write home about. Can be avoided.

Fish Fry: Good, should be tried

Haleem (again) at Savoury at Bangalore: One of my friends insisted on it, tried, found it better than Pista House, but still nothing out of the world.

Mutton Seekh: Good, probably the best of the dry lot.

Mutton Biryani: At the Calcutta Styled outlet: Definitely the best dish I tasted, absolutely needs to be had.

Sweets: Really nothing to write home about, were decent all around. Firni at a couple of outlets was a severe disappointment.

No problems in finding a parking till 6pm I suppose. I reached early just in case. Park near KFC and walk down.

Its my 8th year in Bangalore. From my bachelor days to married days to father days. I had heard a lot about the Ramazan food fest during Eid. Never been there.
This year after a lot of push from wifey and friends (tbhp and non-tbhp), we decided to pay a visit to Mosque Road, Frazer Town.
I took the bike as it was a weekday with evening rush. Best decision made when I reached Mosque Road around 7pm. Parking a bike was painful, imagine if I had taken my car.
The rush at the food counters was maddenning. I have never been in such a rush and crowded place.

So we started:

Heritage - Chicken Satte
Opposite to Heritage (near Empire) - Grilled Prawn, Chicken Kadi Roll
Pista House - Mutton Haleem
Ali's - Mutton Seekh Kebab
Another outlet - Mutton Seekh Kebab
Some outlet - Chicken Tangri Kebab
Some outlet - Grilled Chicken Slab, Chicken Tangri Kebab
Some outlet - Falooda
Heritage - Mutton Katakat
Heritage - Firni, Gulab Jamun

Missed - Patthar ka Gosht, Haleem at some other place.

Finished off by 9pm. Reached home @ BTM by 9:30pm.

Overall, a well spent evening. All the delicacies cannot be tried out in one evening. A second or a third visit is a must.

Here are some snaps from yesterday's visit.

Haleem from Pista House
Feedback - I am a first timer for Haleem. It tasted flat and nothing exciting. Mutton stew mashed up. Add to the pain, lots of broken bones. Hardly found the peace to chew on the mutton flesh. My mom and wife makes stew item better.

Chicken Haleem - After the disaster of Mutton Haleem at Pista House, we tried it at another place (forgot the name). Tasted crap there too.

Grilled Prawn - Vey much flat in taste, as you can make out from the picture.

Chicken Kadi Roll - Tasted good.
