Loved and hated this place at the same time! It’s like a slightly upmarket dhaba that serves excellent food and beverages at low prices, but you can’t be finicky about hygiene here. You’d be spoilt for choices of both food and beverages, since they serve everything from chakhna (titbits like salted peanuts, fried moong dal etc), nachos, baos with quirky fillings to biryani and much more.
The first time we came here, there was a long queue. The next time we were there, it was closed due to prohibition 😦 Today was our lucky day and we got a table. They have some seating outside, but it was way too hot, so we chose to sit in. There was no one at the reception and none of the servers seemed interested in showing us a table, so we found a place ourselves and settled in.
Such a sad day. I was having such a good time shopping in Phoenix Market City a couple of days back and looking forward to a delicious lunch afterwards in Noodle Bar. Unfortunately, we reached the restaurant and saw it was closed. And then it got worse, when we found out that most of the eateries were closed due to prohibition in the city 😦
I was in no mood to have lunch in food court, and thankfully we stumbled upon Hungry Monk, which is located in a secluded corner of the mall.
If you are a Bangalorean and haven’t visited this place, you are missing something 🙂 I can’t stop gushing about this place, so this review is a long one 😀
This place had been on my to-visit list for a while, but it’s really far from my place (somewhere around 23 kms), so it was still pending. We finally got a chance to visit this paradise on a weekday. Thankfully it didn’t take us very long for reaching this place, but a long time to come back home.
It is spread across 6th and 8th floor of a particular building in EPIP zone, Whitefield. We both instantly fell in love with the place, the moment we stepped in. It is classy and not at all loud in terms of decor and music.
Last time when we went to this place, it was yet to open. So this Saturday after our movie in market city, I subtly suggested that we go to VR mall and see how this place was doing 😀
The pub looks beautiful from outside, they have put up vintage wall clocks on display on the outer wall, along with some beautiful portraits of Ireland.
We were quickly ushered to a table and I was momentarily stunned by the gorgeous interiors. Lighting was just perfect, not so dark that you’d keep bumping into tables, and not so bright either.
Was in phoenix market city for a movie this Saturday and spotted this cute place with gorgeous looking desserts on display. I immediately dragged Mr. Husband for a quick coffee and some macarons before our movie show 🙂
We ordered for an americano(Hubby has a thing for black coffees), a hazelnut macaron and a chocolate macaron.
Came far from our house to Phoenix market city over the weekend to catch a certain movie that I didn’t want to watch (I was lured into it by Mr. Husband, but I came out happy since he didn’t like it either ;)).
We had some time to kill before the show, and having never been to Cafe Noir, we decided to visit it. “Noir”(pronounced as nwaa) literally translates to “black” in French, and “café noir” means “black coffee”.
Spent most of this Saturday shopping, and after finishing in Koramangala, decided to visit VR Bengaluru. After getting disheartened to see an almost deserted Whitefield Arms and yet-to-open Irish House (which looked very good and is opening on 12th), we thought of going to Harry’s in Phoenix Market City.
