Tito’s lane, Goa

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

Baithak, HSR Layout

Baithak translates to “living room” or “lounge”(in a more formal sense) in Hindi, and is indeed built like that. I noticed this place last week when I went to Tea Trails, which is located right opposite to it.

The place looks quite beautiful with some gazebos for group seating, and lots of smaller sized tables. Special note to ladies, don’t go to this place wearing your pretty heels, all the floors(outside and inside) are covered with sand and you’ll have  a difficult time walking around 🙂

Grapevine, HSR Layout

A dreamy little cafe, hot cup of tea, some yummy snacks and a crossword puzzle with Mr.H and I felt I could spend my entire evening here. How could I have failed to notice this place!

This charming cafe has simple yet classy decor, an open bookshelf built around a huge tree trunk and a wine rack with some wines on display near the entrance. The place has a cozy feel to it, and the glass wall on one side makes it look bright and spacious.

I think I spent first half an hour just gazing around at the lovely surroundings, and then my eyes fell upon coloring sheets and a crossword puzzle on our table (yay!). Our server handed us their beautiful menus and a big case of color pencils for the coloring sheets 😀

They have varieties of coffees, teas, shakes and appetizing dishes. We asked for coco berry tea, macchiato, a portion of spinach & artichoke onion rings, and started off with the crossword puzzle 🙂

Service was super quick and our server appeared soon with our food and beverages. Tea was accompanied by delicious chocolate cookies. Both tea and coffee were excellent, but the showstopper was onion rings.

Slices of onion stuffed with spinach and cheese, dipped in a light batter and fried to perfection, sinful and delicious 🙂 I loved the light batter, which made the onion rings light and fluffy rather than weighing them down. The dip served along with the dish was equally good. I wish they start serving even number of rings, so that we won’t have to fight over the last piece 😀

The cafe is an absolute delight, and we had an amazing time with incredible food and puzzles. It’s a perfect place to relax. I am definitely going back for dinner soon!

Malgudi Vattika, Mysore Road

I had seen some beautiful photos of this place on different websites, and when hubby suggested it for lunch, I agreed immediately. But going so far for lunch, I thought the place better be good.

Malgudi vattika is spread over a large area and is covered with lush greenery. They have basic wooden furniture, which looks quite charming. The place reminded me of my village actually 🙂

They have a separate section for a-la-carte North Indian and South Indian food, and for South Indian meals. We opted for meals and bought tokens for jowar thali (thali with jowar roti) and poori thali (pooris instead of jowar roti).

Good times @Chavadi, Bannerghatta Road

Chavadi is a beautiful place tucked away from the hustle bustle of the city and the ever busy Bannerghatta Road. If you are looking for a quiet rooftop place with quirky cocktails and yummy food, this is where you should go.

This week, after an afternoon movie in JP Nagar, I suggested this place for a late lunch and snacks. So after braving traffic on bannerghatta road, we reached here and I must say this was worth all the traffic.

Singkong, UB City

It had been a while since we went to UB  City for food. Over the weekend, everyone agreed for Chinese/Thai and I decided to tick off another place on my list 🙂 And we headed to Singkong.

It is located in the beautiful UB City piazza and we decided to sit out, since it was not hot and we could also have a view of the food fest which was going on there.

The gentlemen ordered beers and ladies sangrias. For appetizer, hubby thought popiah looked interesting. Service was good and everything appeared shortly.
