A favourite destination in Bengaluru✈️

My alarm starts to ring, it’s 5:00 am on a Sunday morning; it’s still dark outside and my head feels groggy initially, but soon settles on a single line of thought, that I have to get a head start on the To Do list for the morning so as to make it out of the…

Lunch @Maya, Jayanagar, Bangalore🍽

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…

Biryani on Brigade road (Anjappar) 🍲

My first destination on the late Saturday morning was Commercial street in downtown Bangalore; it took more than an hour to reach there from Sarjapur side, the notorious Bangalore traffic is back in full josh. I was dropping off a few fabrics with the tailor, I had earlier bought a few Orissa Ikat printed fabrics…

Kappa Chakka Kandhari: Sweet and savoury, a taste of Kerala 🛶

The reason for the salubrious weather in Bangalore is its elevation at 3000+ ft above sea level. Ask any resident what they love about the city, after the weather, the next on the list will be the green canopy enveloping the city followed by the many eateries that abound the cityscape. And like every metro…

Nasi & Mee: A scrumptious affair 🍝

Our eating out expeditions usually see us heading towards the Koramangala, Indiranagar and MG Road neighbourhoods in Bangalore; but closer to home at Sarjapur, there are a few good places to dine out too and Nasi & Mee at the Bay building in the IT park Brookfields Ecoworld is one such place. The Bay building…

Sly Granny: A medley of flavours 🍝🧆

1 Apr, Friday afternoon and we were off to downtown Bangalore for lunch. The traffic is back in full josh on Bangalore roads. The outer ring road in Bangalore has metro work going on and this has taken up one lane on the road; another lane was demarcated as an exclusive bus lane, thus leaving…

The Only Place (TOP) in Bangalore 🍔

The restaurant is located along the Museum Cross Road which runs perpendicular to Church Street in downtown Bangalore; their USP are their meaty steaks and burgers, together with the nostalgia of yesteryears. It’s a standalone restaurant and an old establishment dating back to maybe thirty years or more; the brief history is printed out, laminated,…

Revisiting favourites 🍝

It’s the weekend before Valentine’s Day; some shop windows display red balloons and heart shaped cut outs to mark the occasion; for him and her 🎈. We ventured to Church Street to see if we can sell some old books at the second hand bookshop. Their quoted price was very low and no cash offered;…

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…

Smoking sizzlers

Saturday, 26 January, was our Republic Day. In the past when I was working, it used to be a holiday in Jan that I used to look forward to; a day to spend at home. But now being at home full-time, it has become a day I look forward to venture outside. The morning kicked…
