Located diagonally opposite J W Marriott the Ten One opened a few days back apparently. The place is modern with vectors and caricatures on the walls and the Udipiesque banquette seating is comfortable. The menu on a A3 hardboard is a melange of Udipi fervour and continental awareness. From the Kolhapuri Misal to Bagel Pizza, from the Gowd Saraswat Biscuit Ambades to Risottos. from Puri Sheera to Quinoa salad, from Malaysian coconut soup to the humble Rasam, the place has a bit of everything.
I tried the Malaysian coconut soup it was mild and tepid, the bagel pizza was good, the biscuit ambade and rasam perfect. What stood out was the Kolhapuri Misal with tari on the side and the rice vermicelli upma a rare find in the city. I ended with a sinful ghee Sheera and a filter coffee. I left the continental fare for some other day. Last words, Ten One is not a fine dine, but it is certainly a very fine Udipi.
