“Rural Blues” was on my list since it opened, and last weekend Mr.H graciously agreed to go there for lunch(finally!) 😀 The place has a beautiful entrance which looks more like someone’s residence than a restaurant. They have some beautiful outdoor and rooftop seating, but both of them were booked for a private parties that day.
Interiors are very simple and neat, and I liked the fact that they hadn’t crammed in too many tables. There’s a bar counter on one end and an open kitchen on the other.
Their food menu is vast and they have dishes from many cuisines, Indian, Thai, Italian to name a few. Bar menu has decent choices for cocktails and liquors, though I wish they had more choices for beers. We started off with our usual bira along with veg nachos and magic mushrooms.
The Whitefield Arms is a colonial style pub located in The Waverly Hotel and is attached to VR Bengaluru mall. I was always intrigued by the name of this pub and it seems to have an interesting history indeed(read about it here).
The pub looks striking with dark wood furniture and a beautiful bar counter, black & white being the dominant colours everywhere. We were blown away by the beautiful patio seating and got seated outside to enjoy the lovely evening breeze.
“That Garage Cafe” is a garage themed cafe in HSR and part of the place rents/sells cycles and bikes too. The cafe is not very big and has an interesting decor with tables shaped like bike tyres, napkin holders made out of audio cassettes etc. There are some board games as well like scrabble, monopoly etc.
I saw some massive stunning Enfields(I could identify only Americana) outside for sale/rent. So if you are a bike lover, do go to this place.
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 :)).
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).
