Bathinda Junction, HSR

On the last day of pujo, we went for a dinner takeaway to Bathinda Junction. The place has a dhaba like setup with charpais(woven rope beds) etc. It was completely packed when we reached and there was a queue even for takeaway.

The restaurant has too many tables and charpais crammed into a small area. There isn’t much to the decor apart from a few photos of Punjabi singers/actors, but they do have loud Punjabi music playing in the background.

The Marina, Shimla

Why go to a resort when you have a view like this from your house!

2017-08-31-20-38-06

It’s been almost two years since I visited Shimla. Weather was lovely and not very cold, though it remained cloudy most of the time.

It was hubby’s birthday too, and we all decided to go to the very beautiful Hotel Marina for dinner. It’s a lovely boutique hotel near Mall road. The restaurant looked neat with comfortable seating and well spaced tables.

Kapoor’s Cafe, HSR

Last weekend we were looking for some good Punjabi food nearby, when I remembered Kapoor’s Cafe had recently opened a branch in HSR. The eatery is spread across two floors, one with the usual table & chair seating and another one with dhaba style charpais/khatiyas (woven rope beds).

The restaurant doesn’t have valet parking, but that’s the good thing about HSR, it’s never difficult to find a parking place in front of restaurants 🙂

We wanted to get some takeaway and placed an order for pudina khasta paratha, khasta paratha, matar paneer and dal makhni(you cannot go to a Punjabi place and leave without having dal makhni 🙂 ). Their menu is pretty big and has lots of combos as well. I also noticed white butter, but I guess that won’t be suitable for takeaway/home delivery.

Roots, Koramangala

Somehow I’m always at a loss of options, when everyone at home decides to have good North Indian food. This Saturday for a change, the laborious task of choosing a restaurant was taken over by Mr. H and he suggested Roots in Koramangala.

I remembered crossing this place many times, but never paying much attention. It’s a comparatively new place, and last I checked it didn’t have great ratings, but this time it had got amazing reviews and ratings had shot up!

So we booked a table for four at 8 p.m. (thank goodness we did!), and reached the place on time to find it completely packed. The place was extremely noisy, and their tables were not placed well making the dining area somewhat cramped. We even started contemplating moving to another restaurant for main course, though that never happened 🙂

Pind Balluchi, Garuda Mall

We rarely visit Garuda Mall these days, partly because it’s far and there are not many eateries in the mall 😀 Moreover, yesterday I discovered that the Mango store which used to be a fav, had closed 😦

After some frantic last minute shopping for our upcoming vacation, we decided to dine at Pind Balluchi which is located on the 3rd floor.

Salt Indian Bar & Grill, Forum Mall, Koramangala

Finally a good restaurant in forum!

We went here with parents over the weekend, thoroughly enjoyed our meal and left with smiles and  happy tummies 🙂
This place is located right next to Toscano, and has an interesting menu of different Indian dishes, desserts and a special Punjabi menu for the weekends.
