I was taken for lunch to this place by none other than a Nepali friend of mine who grew extremely fond of it since the first time she stepped foot there. When you enter the place, you’ll find yourself checking out the décor, which is simple but very nicely done. Ceiling lights hanging inside Tuborg bottles look beautiful. No sooner than you place your order, the restaurant starts giving you a feel of being in Nepal itself – the ambiance is adorned with pretty lights, flags with quotes about food and traveling, and there is Nepali music playing in the background. Having visited Nepal, I can safely say that this place is the closest to the Thakali Kitchens you’ll find there, and the only one that serves the authentic Nepali food.
Situated in one of the high profile areas of Bangalore, next to UB City, Bootleggers has always been one of my favourite drinking joints in the city. An ease on the pocket, Bootleggers is the perfect place for pre-drinking if you’re off to another place later; or you could also just hop in for a quick mug of beer and lunch.
In spite of Chili’s being around in India for quite some time now, both in Pune and Bangalore, the two cities I’ve lived in, I had never got a chance to visit this place before. However, I happened to go there with a couple of friends recently and I must say that I was highly impressed! The food was amazing; the staff was kind, efficient and provided good service, and overall the night turned out to be a lot of fun!
A place that gets its name from the famous rabbit and tortoise story that has been a part of each one of our childhoods, The Black Rabbit opened up quite about a year ago on the always-buzzing 100 feet road of Indiranagar. With its explicit golden nameplate outside, this place is elegantly done on the inside as well and has a nice, chill vibe to it.
Nachos are everyone’s favourite and the amount of restaurants you can go visit to have them is innumerable! But if you want to have some Real Mexican Food and gorge on to tacos, burritos or tostadas, Chinita in Indiranagar is the place to be!
If you are in the mood for a wholesome and filling English, Spanish or Ultimate breakfast, Crème and Crust in Indiranagar is the place to be! Although the place has been designed in a manner that it is apt for a breakfast for two, or for one of those solo breakfasts you have when you’re in the midst of working or contemplating about life/relationships/breakups, you can go there in a group as well, just like I did.
Living in a place like Bangalore where the city is popping up with new drinking holes every day, the moment you hear of a new place, you want to go and try it! Sanctum was that place for me and hence I decided to pay it a visit with a few friends. Turns out, the place has been around for two years and two months. Well, that must say something about their publicity.
