The Biere Club, Whitefield

153 Biere Street is a picturesque address tucked away in Whitefield. The place has a microbrewery, couple of cafes, boutiques etc and has a certain old world charm to it. It feels like a different world altogether with beautiful brick lanes, victorian lights and antique wrought iron furniture.

I had seen some beautiful photos and reviews of the outlet of Biere Club here and decided to visit it over the weekend. I had been to the one on Lavelle road and liked the brews and food.

Smally’s Resto Cafe, Church Street

Looking for some yummy comfort food? Well, this is your place!

We landed here one hot sunny afternoon, hungry, tired and looking for cafes with parking places.

Smally’s is a small place with a sizeable menu on Church street. And it has valet parking!(we all know how hard it is to find a parking place in church street :))

Safe House, HSR

It’s funny(and incredible too!) when you see your partner knows you a bit too well 🙂 And mine knows that I get cranky if we spend the whole weekend at home 😀 So after spending most part of Saturday catching up stuff on Netflix, he suggested we check out ‘Safe House’ in HSR.

We made a reservation through Dineout and reached the place. It is located on outer ring road opposite to Pindi.

The decor is typical, with dim lighting, high chairs and a pool table in the middle. We got seated and started scanning through their menus. The first thing that I noticed was their pricing. I don’t think you can get such low priced cocktails at many places in the city. They have a good variety of beers as well, everything from Kingfisher draft to Stella Artois.

House of Commons, HSR

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.

Candolim, Goa

This was our last evening in North Goa and we thought “you can never have enough of beaches, isn’t it” :)? And so, we went to the lovely Candolim beach.

Mum & Dad enjoying the lovely beach

This beach was less crowded than Baga and Calangute, and hence cleaner too. Waves were high here and we couldn’t go much deep into the waters. But we did have lovely walk to Fort Aguada.

Goa diaries, Day 4

We moved to South Goa on the last day of our trip. We had booked a house in Benaulim using Airbnb, and it took us around 1.5 hours from Calangute to reach there.

As you move South in Goa, you’ll notice a steady decline in the number of eateries, pubs, shops etc. And at times, you might end up with no mobile network as well 🙂

Goa diaries, Day 2

Beautiful sunny beaches, food, beer and wind in my hair..that’s Goa for me 🙂

After finishing breakfast at home, we walked to the beach. The main road in Calangute is lined with loads of restobars and shops to eat and shop from.

After enjoying the lovely waves and turning a few shades darker :D, we got seated at one of the shacks for beers, fries and sandwiches. Frankly, I have lost track of the amount of beer I’ve had during this week 🙂 Veg sandwich was good, and chicken sandwich was super delicious. It was cheesy and loaded with tender chunks of perfectly cooked chicken.
