Broadway – The Gourmet Theatre, HSR

Last weekend I was craving for some nigiri and there are very few places nearby that serve sushi, “Broadway” being one of them. Their menu offers a fairly decent range of Indian fares as well, along with the Japanese staples.

I am glad we made a reservation since the place was packed during lunch. Ambience is simple and the place is done up in neutral colours. They have some outdoor seating as well, which I am sure is lovely in the evenings. But it was way too hot in the afternoon, so we chose to sit in.

Wok Paper Scissors, Koramangala 5th Block

“Wok Paper Scissors” probably gets its name from the very popular hand game “Rock Paper Scissors”. I haven’t visited the restaurant, but sampled some of its food over this weekend.

Here is what I ordered:

Shizusan Shophouse & Bar, Phoenix Market City

I had been planning to visit this place since it opened, and finally did this weekend for lunch.

The place is quite spacious with comfortable seating. I loved the simple yet beautiful decor and decided to take one of the tables outside since the weather was lovely.

Their menu looked pretty good, but unfortunately I couldn’t find kake udon or ramen in there. So I asked for a Hainanese chicken rice(which is apparently on the menu of a michelin star winner!). It was somewhat disappointing after our server mentioned that this dish would take long, and asked me to order a fried rice instead. I eventually settled for salmon nigiri.

Teppan Japanese Grill & Sushi Bar, Ulsoor

I was craving for some sushi this weekend and Teppan seemed like a great choice. Teppan literally translates to “iron plate”, that is used for stir frying in Japanese cuisine. The eatery is located on the 3rd floor of the same building that houses two more popular restaurants- Benjarong and Ente Keralam.

The restaurant has an understated elegance and calm about it. The decor consists of simple but classy wooden furniture, lovely paintings and some pretty geisha dolls.

Wok to Asia, Marathahalli

It’s nice to see more and more authentic Pan Asian places opening up in the city. This weekend we spotted a new place called Wok to Asia and went for lunch.

The restaurant has valet parking, so you won’t have any parking woes 🙂 Interiors are neat & bright with colourful origami birds dangling from the ceiling. It serves both buffet and à la carte, and has a beautiful bar counter too.

Aroi, Sarjapur Road

Aroi means delicious in Thai, and this place truly lives up to its name. We decided to visit it for lunch over the weekend, climbed four flights of stairs(totally worth it!), and had some amazing food.

The place looks simple yet beautiful and overlooks Kaikondrahalli lake near Sarjapur Road. They have plenty of seating and we decided to take a table outside that had a nice view of the lake.

High Ultra Lounge, Malleshwaram

Braving the city traffic and going to High Ultra Lounge in Malleshwaram this Saturday was a feat in itself!

This lounge is located on the 31st floor of World Trade Center, and is touted as the highest sky lounge in South India. It took us more than 1.5 hours to reach the place, and was it worth? Read on.

I had made a reservation through Zomato, and reached an hour late (thanks to Bangalore traffic!). The receptionist said they had tables available and I heaved a sigh of relief.
