Lunching At Sancho’s

I’ve always considered Mexican food to be the perfect pick-me-up. Maybe it’s the merry crunch of nachos, or the vibrant salsa, the indulgent cheese, or the heat and the all-round freshness of the cuisine. It hits the spot every time, but sadly, the city has very few favourites for a fun fiesta. After a recent…

Sunday Brunch at The Glass House

We had heard much about The Glass House before we decided that it’s about time we paid a visit to see for ourselves how much of the chitter chatter were real. I liked the sound of it. In my mind, I had pictured a swanky place exemplifying modern minimalist architecture, and with dreamy lights lending…

Weekend with Mr. Bean

Where do you take a 10-year old to grab a quick bite? Amongst the many places that were hovering in my head, a cafe seemed like the best bet. Especially with a kid who is extremely picky about her choice of food. So it was Mr. Bean’s Home Cafe at Koramangala.

Easter Baking Class at Lavonne

Long weekends always bring a cheer. And this Easter weekend, we decided to spend it learning to bake some festive treats. Lavonne, the popular patisserie and baking academy at Bangalore, is also known for their baking classes where one can learn to make a whole range of delights such as cupcakes, breads, tarts, pies, quiches,…

Unlimited Dim Sums at Szechwan Court, The Oberoi

Before you jump the gun and assume that this post is about an exorbitant meal at The Oberoi, let me assure you that you are in for a big surprise! When we heard about the unlimited dim sum lunch at Szechwan Court, we were excited to learn all about the tempting inclusions in the menu…

Naga Food Festival at Cafe Thulp

Say Naga food and I am always up and ready for a fiery feast. So when we heard about the ongoing Naga food festival at Cafe Thulp, Bangalore, it seemed like the perfect excuse to kickstart the weekend food fiesta. Naga cuisine, though notoriously popular for its exorbitant spice level, is also known for some…

Summertime Gladness

The sun is shining bright (with evil intent, if you ask me!) and the mercury seems to be rising by the day. We know what that means – it’s time to ditch everything rich, and bring out the flavours of summer. The Market, at the glitzy Ritz, is flagging off the season in some serious…

Rendezvous with a Michelin Starred Chef

When you are about to meet a chef who comes with the Michelin badge, your expectations of him and his culinary art automatically soar high. You picture extraordinary concepts and creations that would completely bowl you over. So on a fine afternoon, I eagerly set out to meet Anupam Banerjee, Executive Chef, The Ritz-Carlton, Bangalore,…

Tea Mania At Infinitea

The concept of tea parties has always fascinated me. Something about those delicate crockery with pretty patterns, the sparkling clean linen, the aroma of freshly brewed tea and the assortment of delectable short bites to keep conversations going. And growing up in a tea estate being part of this culture, any such occasion here in…

Rediscovering South Indian Cuisine At Bon South

A decade ago when I first stepped into the southern part of the country, my knowledge of South Indian cuisine was limited (shamefully) to dosa, idli, vada, sambar and curd rice. Back in the East, those were the commonly served items at the restaurants and growing up, I thought that was the end to South…

Pure Indulgence at Cafe of Joy

Sometime back, I had stumbled upon this quote by a famous Persian poet called Rumi, “When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.” I felt that joy when I started my own food blog. It is a different high! So when I met the baker of a…

Lunching at Om Made Cafe

Just the other day while carrying out some chores in Koramangala 5th Block, I came across the hoarding of Om Made Cafe. Perched atop a building, the glimpses of the cafe that I caught from the street seemed inviting. This is also because I love rooftop spaces and I feel they automatically score points before…
