It’s been a while since my last visit to the Republic of Noodles, which Bangaloreans love to call RON. But I happened to be in the area and the urge for some good food hit and RON was two minutes away. Nothing has changed in the space – not the seating, not the water body that flows through the restaurant and definitely not the top notch service. We began with the 'Bangkok Roast Pork' with Chilli Jam. Lovely chunks of pork, well balanced in terms of fat to meat ratio that has been marinated and grilled. It is the chilli jam that works wonders and trust me the caramelized onion sweet sauce that comes with it is priceless! The pepper hit from the 'Thai Garlic Prawns' is great, the 'Pot Stickers' are brilliant and the 'Clear Chicken and Basil soup' will soothe your soul. The 'Vietnamese Pho in Pork' was my main course choice. A nice broth that seems to have been simmering for quite a while and had quite a body to it. The portion is substantial. The accompaniments make it all the better. I wanted something simple and the 'Nonya chicken curry with jasmine rice' was just perfect. Creamy curry with a strong hit of basil and lemon, this is best had steaming hot. The restaurant serves its drinks from its lounge next door and does some good cocktails, though I stuck to beer for this meal.
