The Grub Central, HSR

Have you noticed the colorful trains in children’s books? “The Grub Central” is a cute little cafe in HSR that looks just like one of those trains, colorful and cheerful.

We went here for a late lunch over the weekend and tried out a few things. Menu had the usual cafe fare – burgers, sandwiches, pizzas and some snacks. There was only one server, and we were the only customers so service turned out to be good.

Here’s what we tried:

Auro pizza, White Town, Pondicherry

‘Auro pizza’ is a nondescript tiny eatery in the beautiful White town of Pondicherry that serves delicious wood-fired thin crust pizzas. I’m glad we decided to eat there even after getting discouraged by the looks of it.

They had a good variety of toppings and we asked for a Feta Chicken pizza and a Funghi pizza.

Hopper’s Bar & Kitchen, Pondicherry

We recently made a quick trip to Pondicherry. Weather was lovely (sweltering summer hasn’t arrived there yet). On our first night, we went to this lounge called ‘Hopper’s Bar & Kitchen’.

The place was not very crowded since it was a weekday and we got a table of our choice. Seating was comfortable and lighting was perfect. They had an excellent cocktail menu and I was impressed with the number of whiskey based cocktails they had. Here is what we tried:

A La Carte, Hotel Ajanta Sea View, Pondicherry

On one of the days during our stay in Pondicherry, we went back to White Town for a considerably late lunch. All of us wanted to eat at a rooftop or open air place. So we went exploring towards Promenade beach and discovered this restaurant with a breathtaking view.

I am not sure how this hotel is, but I loved the restaurant (probably due to the view). It has some tables on the rooftop, which overlooks the gorgeous Bay of Bengal and gets a lovely breeze.

HQ, Whitefield

Happy New Year! Hope you enjoyed your holidays. I sure did and now I am having a tough time getting back to work 🙂

We had a fun new year’s eve celebration in Marriott Whitefield, and before that we went to this beautiful restobar called HQ. It is spread across two floors in Inorbit Mall, which is right next to Marriott. The place looks beautiful and airy with plenty of comfy seating, hanging pots and greens all around.

We took a table outside where the breeze was lovely. Menu is good and offers plenty of drinks and grub to choose from. They had Geist brews on tap, and we asked for an unkel dunkel, witty wit, onion rings and veg sliders.
