Hoot, Sarjapur Road

I had been frequently working Hoot into our weekend conversations of “where do we go for lunch today?”. Mr. H finally gave in this weekend, and we went there for a late lunch 🙂

Hoot is a massive microbrewery located on Sarjapur Road and is a new addition to the rapidly expanding list of microbreweries in the city. It is spread over a whopping 40000 sq ft and resembles a warehouse or garage from outside.

I had seen some beautiful pictures of its striking ambiance on different websites and blogs, and was looking forward to visiting it.

Murphy’s Brewhouse, Domlur

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!).

The Biere Club, Whitefield

153 Biere Street is a picturesque address tucked away in Whitefield. The place has a microbrewery, couple of cafes, boutiques etc and has a certain old world charm to it. It feels like a different world altogether with beautiful brick lanes, victorian lights and antique wrought iron furniture.

I had seen some beautiful photos and reviews of the outlet of Biere Club here and decided to visit it over the weekend. I had been to the one on Lavelle road and liked the brews and food.

Caffe Pascucci, HSR

I absolutely love cheery bright eateries, where I can see and admire what I am eating 🙂 And Cafe Pascucci is one such beautiful cafe in HSR.

This Friday night, breaking our usual tradition of not stepping out into the mad traffic, we went to HSR for a late dinner. I had crossed this cafe loads of times, but never got around to visiting it until this weekend. We reached around 10:30 p.m., and the place was completely packed. We had to rush for cover as it starting pouring out of nowhere!

Goa diaries, Day 1

We made a pit stop at Dudhsagar Spa Resort on the way to North Goa. It’s a big open place near Mollem check post, you can’t miss it. 

Service was very slow but our pakoras turned out to be fresh and tasty. We finished our snacks and started for our first destination Calangute, which took around an hour and half to reach.
We had booked a lagoon villa in Calangute Casitas on Airbnb this time, since we were staying for a longer duration and didn’t want to eat out all the time. This was first experience with Airbnb, which unfortunately didn’t turn out to be all that nice due to various reasons.

Ovenstory, HSR Layout

Both of us were craving for some outside food, and after a lot of discussion(as usual!) we decided to order pizza from Ovenstory. Their menu looked interesting with loads of varieties, and the best part was that they had only thin crust pizzas.

We placed an order for veg medley pizza and a corn & olive bruschetta. Order arrived almost on time, and I was quite impressed by the packaging. But was the food as good? Read on.

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.
