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 🙂

Andhra Ruchulu, JP Nagar

I had been craving for some Andhra veg food and luckily came across this place called Andhra Ruchulu in JP Nagar over last weekend. In case you haven’t had a typical Andhra meal before, I highly recommend you try it out.

Andhra Ruchulu is a very simple restaurant with comfortable seating that serves mouth-watering food. The meal had the usual assortment of dishes and we enjoyed every single thing on our plantain leaf.

The Vape, HSR

‘The Vape’ is a beautiful breezy rooftop cafe in HSR layout. The place looks lovely with wooden patio furniture, a small vertical garden and some beautiful planters.

We were out for some chores over the weekend and went here for a late lunch. Both of us were famished and ended up ordering a lot of food 🙂 Our order comprised of veg noodles, a veg curry (don’t remember the name now) american chili corn and a veg sandwich.

Simon says brew, Koramangala

‘Simon says brew’ is a relatively new microbrewery, located right above the very popular Boozy Griffin. I was primarily excited about this place because of its amusing name. The place is split into three sections and has a decent amount of seating. Interiors are very simple; there’s a DJ console and the usual display of beer kettles and fermenters. Reservation is recommended on weekends since it gets quite crowded after 9.

Pazzo, HSR Layout

‘Pazzo’ is a nice little eatery in HSR. I googled the word and found that it translates to insane/crazy in Italian 😀 I guess the name was chosen for the insanely good food that this place serves!

We went here over this weekend for dinner. The place is not very big, and can feel a little cramped when it’s full. Most of the seating consists of high chairs; there are a couple of benches as well.

Hangover, HSR

Hangover is the latest addition to HSR’s swiftly increasing number of watering holes. It’s sort of hard to imagine such a swanky place in HSR, and for the lack of a better term to describe the ambience, I’ll just say the whole place looks quite interesting.

The place is pretty big and has three levels of seating. Drinks menu has a decent variety of spirits to choose from, but the food menu is disheartening. It hardly has any vegetarian options and you have to play a guessing game to see what a dish might contain.
