Inside Ferry Wharf, Bandra | All The Deets
Sea-food lovers, Ferry Wharf is for you!
Ferry Wharf is a straight up Mangalorean sea-food joint. If you’re looking for a quick lunch that hits your Mangalorean palette with fresh seafood, then this is your stop for the day. It is not too heavy on the pocket and it delivers what it promises.
Without the frills and flounces, the ambience is comforting and soothing with a paint palette that has stuck to the sea and sailor vibe. Beige and sky blue walls, walls framed with anchors, with an indoor and outdoor seating, make Ferry Wharf a cozy dine-in for patrons.
The menu, reflecting the ambience, is fuss-free. You start of by being introduced to the palette of flavors: butter garlic, ghee roast, pulli munchi, a prawn pickle, the ‘sukha’ and the ‘gassi’ which gently eases you into the flavors of the coast. You know the terminology now, all you need to do is pick your choice of sea food and they can have it ready for you.
We couldn’t resist some bombil fry, which were lovely and crisply battered and soft on the inside. Moved on to the crab in butter garlic and we are definitely recommending this one to any crab lover out there! We also tried the Clams Sukha and the Ghee Roast Prawns. It does sit slightly heavier in the stomach, but for flavors like that, we don’t mind taking the hit. We also tried the Malai Chicken and Tikka and the Hyderabadi Chicken, and the Hyderabadi Chicken was a winner for us.
The Prawn Thali was a good call as well. If you just step in and have this for lunch, its going to be a very satisfying plate. A tangy tamarind curry, prawn sukha and gassi with ‘chauli’ and roti sits well in the stomach while appeasing the palette. You might miss rice in the plate so you would have to call for it separately.
We gulped down this satisfying lunch with Sol Kadi and oh boy, were we ready to hit our bed some afternoon nappin’! Walk in there if you want a fill of the coast, it won’t disappoint!
