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.

Breakfast Express, Electronic City

I think we’ve finally found our perfect breakfast delivery joint in E-city. We spotted this place called “Breakfast Express” on Swiggy and have been ordering from it. Everything we have tried so far has been delicious.

Z-Bar, Zone By The Park, Electronic City

After our delightful experience at Bazaar, I was looking forward to our visit to Z-Bar which is a rooftop lounge in the same hotel Zone By The Park. We visited it over a weekend and the place was not very crowded, as is the case with most eateries in E-City.

Seating was comfortable; the place had both chairs and couches. Food menu had limited choices for bar nibbles, so we asked for our usual order of nachos. Unfortunately our server informed that nachos were unavailable (really?), so we had to settle with potato wedges. Cocktail menu had a decent number of options and both of us asked for Old Fashioned.

Gilly’s, Electronic City

Last friday we paid a visit to Gilly’s Restobar for dinner. Having never been to Koramalagala Gilly’s, I was looking forward to this one near my house.

We had made a reservation, which seemed unnecessary later on since the place had plenty of vacant tables. There was a minimal cover charge, which made me wonder why it was there at all 🙂

Bazaar@Zone By The Park, Electronic City

Over the last weekend, we went out to Bazaar for dinner. It is one of the restaurants in Zone By The Park and serves North & South Indian, Oriental and Continental cuisines. I usually don’t hope much from multi-cuisine places since they fail to do justice to any of the cuisines. But this one turned out to be an excellent surprise!

The restaurant is designed to look like a bazaar(market). There are shelves filled with pulses, spices, utensils and myriad other items. There’s an auto kept at the entrance which adds to the whole market scene.

Fire Station, Electronic City

We recently moved to Electronic City and as much as I love the comparatively quieter streets here, I miss the ample food delivery options and eateries in HSR Layout and Koramangala 🙂 I have, however, made a list of places to check out in E-city and the first one was Fire Station.

This place is spread across two floors, one of them being open air with a pretty chilled out vibe. The color red can be seen in abundance, probably to be in line with the fire station theme. You will also get to see tiny fire extinguisher buckets used for chutneys etc.

The Reservoire, Koramangala

The Reservoire is a beautiful resto-bar located in Koramangala and is truly a reservoir of good food and drinks. It’s one of those places that serve multiple cuisines and manage to do justice to all of them. Both food and drinks menus are vast, and there are plenty of interesting cocktails available.

The place is spread across two (and possible terrace also) floors, has very simple interiors with exposed brick walls. There’s plenty of seating and open space, so the place doesn’t feel suffocating even when it’s packed. Music is decent, the DJ playing that day was a big Pitbull fan I guess 🙂
