Café Felix
We made it to Café Felix just the day before the Highway liquor ban was imposed on MG Road. Built at the space that used to be Blimey at 1 MG Mall, Café Felix has a fresh new urban vibe. There is a great view from the life-sized windows. The multi-level cafe balances a blend …
And what have you been up to this long weekend of Labor Day? We are in town, and I am trying to catch up on my writing. I love the interesting summer food scene that’s going on in Bangalore now, new menu launches and lots of fun new places opening up. And speaking of new, …
Pot O Noodles
I first heard about Pot O Noodles when their outlet opened in Indiranagar. Soham had some lovely pictures of noodle bowls.

Grasshopper
It’s not common for me to have a place on a to-visit list, and not make it there. But that’s what happened with Grasshopper, for years now! So finally when the opportunity arose, schedule and travel plans cooperated, and ta-da, one fine Thursday evening, Tapash and I were off to Grasshopper. The maps are quite …
An incredible SulaFest unfolded this year in February – a Gourmet World Music Festival that was amazing as it celebrated its 10th Anniversary. First of all, the festival this year being a 3 day affair, as opposed to the standard 2 days.  Friday was dedicated to Indian artists had also added one more stage – …
It is not often that we get an opportunity to meet the Chief Winemaker and Director of Four Seasons Wines. We had a nice quiet evening last week meeting Abhay Kewadkar for a tête-à-tête – on his favourite drinks and place. Abhay has worked with wines and vineyards from all over India for many years …
