Sunday…🍹🛍

We were once again at the Hole in the Wall cafe at Koramangala. A 30 minute wait for a table, no problems…. we set ourselves comfortably on the waiting bench. In addition to the usual crowd of bipedals, we had also in line some cute furry friends. They were extremely well behaved 😘 Finally it…

Apartment complexes

Stolen milk packets, missing newspapers, plumber not responding..…. it’s going to be another eventful day on our apartment resident’s WhatsApp group. You can grab your morning tea and lean in to the ensuing WhatsApp drama. I like the life in an apartment, its like a beehive, buzzing with activity. The quiet life in a bungalow…

Taneira – Indulgences in Silk

If we had the sari emoji, I would have definitely added it. But will have to wait. Nearing the month end and planning ahead, I was thinking of a few gifting options and on top of my list were saris. I need to go shopping and I need company; my cousin would be perfect. Unlike…

Social – Meet & Celebrate 🍻

Social is one of the recent additions to Bangalore’s dining out options. The restaurant at Sarjapur is on the 7th floor and as you step out of the lift (so many people and so little space) and walk in for the first time, a smile naturally blooms as you see the large french windows opening…

To Be Continued

Dining out options in Bangalore are aplenty and there are new places opening everyday. To stand out in the crowd, a quirky name is a boon and so it’s no surprise that we have a restaurant named To Be Continued (TBC) at HSR Layout in Bangalore. It’s claim to fame is an open air roof…

Charcuterie

Last weekend’s lunch out was at a restaurant called The Smoke Co. located in  Koramangala, Bangalore. And here we encountered the Charcuterie Platter. I have never heard the word before, sounds foreign, European; should have googled it; the waiter suggested we try the mix charcuterie platter with an assortment of meats; but instead we decided…

Misty allure

A hill station ? No… A restaurant at the Bangalore airport. School has closed for the kid; he is off to his grandparents home for the holidays. He is travelling alone and I dropped him off at the airport. He was taking an Indigo flight and Indigo has been in the news lately for cancelling…

A December to remember

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”  Nelson Mandela 2018 is about to end and I reached 100 posts. Starting off in Jan 18, to reach 100 by the year end was a plan, publishing 2 posts a week and its done !! Maybe targeting a definite number of followers or views or likes would…

A weekend away

We have routines for the weekdays; many have vouched that it is the best way to get things done. We are on auto pilot, things are pre-planned, compiled from the many lists we keep and we simply have to stick to the final to-do list. The days are devoid of the daunting task of decision-making…

Bangalore to Goa: A picturesque road trip

We are driving down to Goa in our Jeep Compass and will be clocking a distance of over 600 kms in this road trip. It’s always tempting, easier and less exhausting to fly rather than drive down. The thrill of a road journey is often marred by the eventual tiredness on reaching the destination due…

Chitradurga fort : Walls of magnificence

I have never heard of this fort before; it was a discovery made while embarking on the Bangalore-Goa road trip. Extremely happy to have visited it; but we had only two hours to explore the fort before we resumed on our journey. Hence could only cover the major structures and may have missed a few…

Brunching in Bengaluru : Fatty Bao

We had a birthday to celebrate in the last week of September and we head to the pan-asian restaurant called Fatty Bao located at Indiranagar, Bangalore. The restaurant has a cute decor with colourful chairs and I liked the simple while umbrella suspended open on the ceiling with the string lights and paper boats. They…

A city heirloom : Koshy’s @Bengaluru

This restaurant in Bangalore, stands on an island triangle, surrounded by roads on all three sides. It is located in the heart of Bangalore, on St. Mark’s road, close to the famous MG Road. From the outside, it is a dilapidated looking building, a full reflection of its present age. The inside is also old world;…
