Copper Kitchen had been trending on most of the platforms for it’s unique dishes that they were serving and this was one of the reasons why I had to visit Copper Kitchen. Located in HSR, this is one of the most visited places for their Andhra and Chettinad cuisine. We were here for dinner, the ambiance is normal, nothing unique, the service was fast and the food was a bit of a up and down roller coaster ride. We had the following dishes.
Nenjelumbu soup is a spicy mutton broth with traditional South Indian spices and muttons ribs. This was the best dish of the day, the taste of the soup was pure bliss.
Andhra Kodi Vepudu is Copper Kitchen’s take on Chicken Fry. With the right amount of spice mix and fried chicken this starter was sure a hit with our taste buds.
Fish Pollichathu is a fusion of Andhra and Kerala styles of cooking, we honestly were expecting a lot from this but were disappointed to know the masala tasted the same to what was used for the chicken starter. The fish was cooked well and was big, but was surely not worth the money or the taste.
For the main course we started with Chef Special Chicken Biryani, which is long grain basmati rice with masala and fried chicken. The quantity of the dish is massive, it is accompanied with raitha, eggs, and a few slices of fruits. The Biryani is a let down, the fried chicken was too hard, the masala was as good as red chilli paste which was used for the starter and many other dishes.
The last dish we had was the Special Kizhi Paratha. This dish was widely spoken off and made to go viral on every platform available and so we were excited to finally taste this. So much expectations and such a disappointment that we could not even finish a quarter of this dish. The same old red chilli masala, with paratha wrapped in a banana leaf with Chettinadu Chicken and Chicken 65. The fish, the chicken starter, the biryani and this all tasted the same and that was such a disappointment.
Copper Kitchen as a place has many dishes to offer and with such a wide variety of dishes one would hope for a tasty roller coaster ride but in reality this was a bit of a let down. The spices were repetitive and the meat was hard to chew on. There is a lot of room for improvement but at the moment I would say this place is not worth the money. You can find them at L 147, Lakshmi Chambers, 5th Main Road, 6th Sector, HSR, Bangalore.
Here is a full recap of our visit to Copper Kitchen.
