Weekend Lunch at Flechazo

Flechazo is a Spanish word. According to Google Translate, it means love. It can also mean revelation or love at first sight.

Whichever meaning you choose to take, it would be an apt description for our dining experience at Flechazo last weekend.

Have you heard of Fantasie Chocolates? I confess I hadn’t until a wonderful invite landed in my inbox asking me would I like to come take part in a workshop about chocolate by the founder and creative head of Fantasie Chocolate – Zeba Kohli.

Would I? Of course! For a chocoholic like me, an opportunity to try out a new brand of chocolate is like an opportunity to try manna from heaven.

Zeba Kohli is an Indian chocolatier, philanthropist, and entrepreneur. Swiss-trained in a Cordon Bleu confectionery school, this is a woman who knows her stuff. She worked for Lindt Chocolates for many years before deciding to create her own chocolate brand – Fantasie Chocolate.

A Toony Brunch with Nickelodeon and JW Marriott

A Toony Brunch with Nickelodeon and JW Marriott

by

JW Marriott does a regular Sunday brunch at their property on Vittal Mallya Road in Bangalore, and it’s quite a nice brunch. However, last weekend, the brunch was a tad extra-special thanks to the intervention of Nickelodeon.

Nickelodeon India – the TV channel that has spawned the likes of Motu Patlu, Pakdam Pakdai, and Shiva organizes plenty of live events across India giving kids the opportunity to mingle with their favorite cartoon characters and generally have fun with Nickelodeon outside of the house as well.

Last weekend, Nickelodeon partnered with JW Marriott for their Sunday brunch, and we just couldn’t resist the opportunity to have a go-see. We have attended past Nick events with my daughter Snubnose, but this was Piglet’s first time, and he was super-excited when I mentioned all his favorite cartoon characters would be there to meet him.

Sunday Lunch at The Whitefield Arms

Sunday Lunch at The Whitefield Arms

Last weekend, Soumya a blogger buddy invited me to lunch at The Whitefield Arms in VR Bengaluru on Whitefield Road.

I have seen this place several times when I visited the mall, but never actually ventured in. I am usually accompanied by my kids, and I didn’t think it was a kid-friendly place.

But last Sunday was relatively free, and so I fed the kids some lunch, strictly instructed them to play with each other, no fighting, and then trotted over to VR Bengaluru to get some once in a blue moon kid-free time with friends.
