There was a lot of hype about this new lounge called 612 East in Indiranagar, even before it started functioning. I had added it to my list and a couple of days back while crossing Indiranagar, we decided to drop by and check it out.
The lounge is spread across three floors and we straightaway went to the terrace. It was a beautiful area with comfortable couches and looked like the perfect place to unwind. But it was just around three in the afternoon and hot outside, so we descended to one of the lower floors and took a table inside.
Bangalore has its fair share of microbreweries, and after having visited quite a few of them I can say this place probably has one of the best brews(Windmills Craftworks still tops my list though :)).
The much awaited long weekend was finally here and after some convincing, Mr. H agreed to go towards the crowded end of intermediate ring road 🙂 He loathes the traffic towards Indiranagar, but thankfully it turned out to be smooth (thanks to the long weekend!).
An unexpected and interesting find! The Bangalore Pantry looks just like a college canteen and has a very interesting menu. We had actually planned for Glen’s Bakehouse that was long pending and after no food and some really bad experience there, we thought of going to Toit. And as luck would have it, Toit turned out to closed! And then I guess the food gods took pity on us and I noticed the board for Bangalore Pantry.
The place doesn’t look very appealing from outside with its scary metal staircase. The decor doesn’t have much except for plain wooden tables, some wooden benches and metal chairs. We were contemplating whether to stay or go when the gracious owner lady showed us to our table. The place has some old style switches, not sure if they are intentional, but they surely did bring back memories of my ancestral house in Bengal 🙂
Have mixed feelings about this place. I had visited the Southindies outlet near Infantry road quite a few times, when I was staying in that area, and I must say that outlet was far more beautiful than this one. Even though the food is good here, the place is slightly mismanaged.
We went here this Saturday, with a reservation through Zomato, but still had to wait for a while before we were ushered to our table. They have some outside seating too, and I was glad that we got a table there overlooking the busy 100ft road.
Yay! Hubby finally agreed to drive to Indiranagar for lunch (maybe due to my relentless requests :P). But the place we were were planning to visit had no valet parking, and finding a parking place in Indiranagar is a challenge.
Habanero was nearby and we decided to stop there since it had valet parking. Their Koramangala outlet is closed now, and there are no other Mexican places in that area. This one looked like a rustic village house with minimal decor consisting of tiles etc.
Spotted this small place located above royal enfield showroom over the weekend. We wanted a quick evening tea, so decided to visit here. There were not many customers, which was quite surprising for a Sunday on 100ft road.
