HSR is gradually becoming the new Koramangala with a slew of new restaurants, pubs and cafes. And this watering hole is a new addition to the area’s bustling food scene.
I was always curious about this place because of its name, and was very happy when Mr. H suggested it for lunch this weekend so that I could tick it off my list 😀
Their menu says the place is not named after the lower house of parliament in UK. It is called “House of Commons” in a more literal sense, a place which welcomes anyone and everyone 🙂 The establishment is spread over two floors, with plenty of both indoor and outdoor seating.
Weekends always turn both of us into gluttons, not that I’m complaining 🙂 And since it’s a mandate to have pizza on Friday/Saturday, we ordered from good ol’ Domino’s after noticing high delivery times for other places.
After polishing down food from Domino’s with some beautiful Sula Dindori Reserve Shiraz(yes, wrong pairing I know!), we felt the need to have something spicy.
And so I placed an order from Empire, HSR for dosa chicken. Hubby of course being mostly vegetarian, opted for jeera rice and paneer butter masala.
I was browsing through Zomato order to satiate our mid week food cravings, when this place popped out because of its unusual name. It looked like a cute little cafe with an interesting menu comprising of Lebanese, Chinese, pasta etc.
I placed an order for shawarma chicken platter, veg momo platter and a combo of noodles with mushroom curry.
Somehow I’m always at a loss of options, when everyone at home decides to have good North Indian food. This Saturday for a change, the laborious task of choosing a restaurant was taken over by Mr. H and he suggested Roots in Koramangala.
I remembered crossing this place many times, but never paying much attention. It’s a comparatively new place, and last I checked it didn’t have great ratings, but this time it had got amazing reviews and ratings had shot up!
So we booked a table for four at 8 p.m. (thank goodness we did!), and reached the place on time to find it completely packed. The place was extremely noisy, and their tables were not placed well making the dining area somewhat cramped. We even started contemplating moving to another restaurant for main course, though that never happened 🙂
Ever heard of BDS? No, I’m not talking about Bachelor of Dental Surgery. This is a new term coined by Mr. H and stands for Biryani Deficiency Syndrome, and apparently I suffer from it time to time 😀
So yesterday after being diagnosed with BDS, I decided to order some medication and was very happy to discover that Nandhana Palace had started delivering to our place. No one else was in a mood for outside food, so I ordered just one Hyderabadi chicken biryani.
Visit to Goa is never quite complete without enjoying its nightlife 🙂 Last time it was Club Cabana, and this time around, we thought of doing some pub hopping in Tito’s lane.
After dropping parents off at home, four of us reached Tito’s around 10 p.m. Entry fees per couple is INR 1000 and you can redeem it against any F&B. The place looks beautiful with a variety of seating. The decor is charming with perfect lighting, elegant furniture and looks like a perfect place to unwind. Dance floor is in a separate section, if you want to shake a leg. Continue reading →
