Lunch @Maya, Jayanagar, Bangalore๐Ÿฝ

Jayanagar is one of the older suburbs in Bangalore, which still has broad tree lined roads enveloped in thick green canopy that blocks the sunlight from reaching the ground; hence even on a hot afternoon, it feels quite cool. “It’s where all the moneybags in Bangalore stay; not the nouveau riche, the old money.” remarked…

A glorious sunday brunch @Lavonne
