There was this bar near Bowring Hospital, Bangalore. Food was decent, prices reasonable, the crowd a quiet one. Given all this, it should have been very popular. But it wasn’t and it was never full.
They claimed seafood as their speciality and the nice Mallu owners chose to have ocean themed interiors. That meant a lot of blue.
A popular theory goes that the reason for the mediocre patronage was mainly due to the fact that while the colour Blue was clearly the colour of the sea it was nowhere close to being the colour of food. Samudra Bar and Restaurant no longer exists.
Today I drink at Manoj Dhaba.
