Level 5, Kothrud,
Porky awesomeness in K-Town!
They say that Pork and Apple is a match made in heaven. Well, Heaven is what I tasted when I dug into the Pork Belly with Apple Sauce at Level 5 Bistro & Bar! PERFECTLY cooked pork belly, with beautifully rendered down fat, served with apple cinnamon sauce, a barbecue sauce and a hot sauce, this pork belly is to DIE for! So soft, you can cut it with a spoon. Yes, I am gushing, coz I week after I tried this at the #foodtasting, I took my family and a couple of other pork-premi friends to eat this again!
Giving solid competition to the awesomeness that was the pork belly was the Ham and Cheese Croissant. The Croissant is baked in house, and is airy, flaky, and oooh so buttery – so good that I bought 3 plain croissant to eat on my way home! The Croissant is sliced and stuffed with slices of ham, cheese and a half fried egg, so when you cut into it, the egg oozes out. Bite into it, and you get the buttery crunch of the croissant, followed by the gooey egg and cheese, with the ham nicely rounding off this beautiful meal.
Rounding off the trifecta of Pork, were the Pork ribs. Cooked so beautifully, that lifting the rib made the meat fall off! Coated with a spicy african spice rub, the ribs were a stark contrast to the Pork belly.
Well, the menu does contain a bunch of other items as well, including the delicious “Mahim Kheema Cutlet” – a very Bombay-ish dish (i wish they served pav with it) and the Asian Mutton Chops – a gorgeous plate of mutton cooked in sweet n spicy sauce.
End the meal with the Rum n Raisin ice cream to get a solid hit of Old Monk!
