The Rogue Elephant opposite to Krishna Roa Park in Basavangudi is one of the best garden cafes in the city of Bengaluru. Located in a area where there are very few cafes that serve the wide varieties ranging from Italian to Mediterranean and some continental food, Rogue Elephant sure has the perfect food with a beautiful ambiance that one could enjoy. Most of the tables are setup in an open area while there are few options under a roof as well. Getting a seat sometimes maybe tough as they are booked full more often than not.
The Cold Coffee was a perfect blend of milk, coffee powder, ice, and ice cream. There is nothing to complain about this one, sip on this and have a great time admiring the place.
Cajun Fish Fingers with Tomato Salsa was our pick for the starters. The Fish fingers were cooked well and had the right amount of crisp which was not over done. The tomato salsa however was too thick and had a lot of dry fruits which I never expected to encounter in a tomato salsa and that for me was a big no.
Cape Malay Chicken with Yellow Rice is a nice take on the famous Malaysian dish. The yellow rice with onions and chilli was beautiful, the chicken curry was rich in onions, ginger, and garlic. It was the perfect combination with the chicken cubes nicely cut and cooked to perfection.
Aglio Olio is a retro favorite here at The Rogue Elephant. The pasta dish was dominated with the taste of garlic which was too overpowering, a little less would make the dish a lot better in terms of balancing out all the ingredients.
They have a seperate snacks menu from 3 to 6 PM every evening and they are worth a shot as well. The service is spot on, the ambiance is one of the best in the city, and the food is as good as it can get. You can find them at 93, Opposite Krishna Rao Park, Jayanagar, Bangalore. Parking is a challenge here as you cannot park your four wheeler on the main road, so I would suggest you find a spot on one of the side roads and walk your way to this beautiful cafe.
