This legendary place called ‘The Hole in the Wall Cafe‘ had been on my list forever and I never got to visit it due to the never-ending queues there. The place doesn’t take reservations and parking is a hassle, which doesn’t help the case either!
So the other day when this place popped up on my Swiggy app, I was very happy and we both decided to order from there. They have a superb breakfast menu as well as lots of burgers/sandwiches to choose from. I placed an order for a grilled double chicken sandwich, big ‘shrooms & onions sandwich and a portion of hash browns.
It’s great to have more options in the city now a days for satisfying late night hunger pangs. I found this place called ‘Midnight Mania’ on Zomato while looking for a quick takeaway after a late movie in Koramangala.
The place is located at the same location as Hangout Cafe, but is a little difficult to spot since there are no lights outside. I had called them beforehand for a takeaway of mushroom punch thin crust pizza, so we didn’t have to wait for long after reaching the place.
The recent alcohol ban seems to be really hard on some lounges, but Koramangala Social seems to be completely oblivious to it. I went to this outlet of Social on Saturday afternoon with a friend, and was quite surprised to see the place completely packed.
I was amazed at how beautiful and green the place looked. While Whitefield Social has more of a garage decor, this one kind of resembles a large greenhouse. There are beautiful plants all around and a big bar counter(now a mocktail/smoothie counter) in the middle.
The Beer Cafe claims to be the largest beer chain in India and offers a plethora of choices for beers from all over the world. Of course the place is not just for enjoying beer, it does have a sizeable cocktail and food menu too.
The place is spacious and has a lazy vibe to it. There’s an outdoor section too, with beautiful garden furniture. I recently visited for lunch with a friend and had a nice time.
Smally’s is a chain of hole-in-the-wall kind of places that churn out delicious comfort food every single time you visit. I have tried their Church Street outlet and had some lip-smacking food there. This weekend we went to the Koramanagala outlet for some takeaway and got a hamster sandwich, magic mushroom burger, chicken stroganoff and red velvet cupcake.
Though the place was not packed my order took a really long time, but their food kind of made up for it.
There are times when quaint cafes and rustic microbreweries just don’t cut it. This was one such weekend when I was yearning for some booming music & dim lights, and moreover it had been a while since we visited a pub.
So this Saturday we decided to go to Tilt. It’s a gastropub located in Koramangala 5th Block with excellent F&B choices and great service.
I made a reservation through Zomato and we reached there just a little after eight. The place has two different sections of seating. Outer one is more like a casual lounge with not so loud music. The inner section has a small dance floor and is split into different seating areas. It has just the perfect kind of dim lighting.
After being stuck at home for most part of Saturday(first due to a long jam and then thunderstorms), we decided to go out for lunch on Sunday. Boca Grande was chosen because of its beautiful photos and tempting menu.
We reached the cafe around 1:30 and took a table inside. Their outdoor seating is picture perfect with wooden benches and cobblestone ground, but it was quite hot to sit outside. So we moved in and took our time choosing a table since the place was almost empty(now I think we should’ve taken the hint :)).
