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.

Aroi, Sarjapur Road

Aroi means delicious in Thai, and this place truly lives up to its name. We decided to visit it for lunch over the weekend, climbed four flights of stairs(totally worth it!), and had some amazing food.

The place looks simple yet beautiful and overlooks Kaikondrahalli lake near Sarjapur Road. They have plenty of seating and we decided to take a table outside that had a nice view of the lake.

Sizzling Monk, HSR

It’s hard to reach a consensus at home when everyone wants to have something different for dinner 😀 Yesterday night, “Sizzling Monk” came to our rescue; it had something to please everyone’s tastbuds. The place has recently opened(not more than a week old I suppose) and boasts of an interesting menu which has everything from Chinese, pizza, pasta to sizzlers, shakes etc.

It’s good to see HSR Layout rapidly evolving as a foodie’s delight. I always used to complain about it not having enough places that serve good Chinese food, but it’s not the case anymore, thanks to places like Sizzling Monk. Before entering here, I also spotted a ‘Cream & Fudge’ outlet right next to it and decided to have desserts there post dinner 😀

Devil goes veg, HSR Layout

Mr. H had been eyeing this place since its inception. He used to be quite fond of 49 Parantha Gali (which was located here), and was heartbroken when it closed its doors 😀 Soon after, this new place with a quirky name and interesting menu opened at the same location. There are plenty of interesting and tempting things to choose from, and everything from North Indian to Chinese to Continental and much more.

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.

Asia Kitchen by Mainland China, Koramangala

Hubby was asking for a Pan-Asian place on Saturday, but did not want to drive any further than Koramangala. I started raking my brains for places on my not-yet-tried list and suggested we try out Asia Kitchen.

This place has valet parking, so you don’t have to struggle for a parking place on that ever crowded street. We reached around 1:30 and found the restaurant was surprising empty for a Saturday afternoon!
