It’s been a long time since Snubnose and I visited our favorite restaurant – Barbeque Nation. And when I heard that there was a new food fest coming up, well, traffic-jammed weekday or not, we had to go.
Band Baaja Barbeque is a wedding themed food festival, and the dishes served are popular wedding favorites. Post-Diwali is the wedding season in India, so it makes sense for the restaurant also to echo this festive spirit.
The North Indian wedding feast theme extends from the menu to the decor, to the waiter’s clothing even.
When we walked into the Barbeque Nation at Lido mall, it felt just like we were walking into a wedding – festive is a mild word to describe the atmosphere.
Last week, I received an invite for a foodie event hosted by Danone. This type of event is not my usual thing, but since the brand was Danone – which is the yogurt staple in our house, I was interested to find out what they had new and cooking.
The get-together was officially to talk about their new line of Greek style yoghurt, but really it was an eye-opening discussion on all things health and fitness.
The keyword was #thehealthyswap – and the theme was how you could stay fit without suffering hunger pangs, by simply substituting healthy options instead of junk food. This theme is probably age-old, but I have to say Danone covered it really well, with a talk by a knowledgeable nutritionist, and cooking demos by Chef Abhijit Saha.
Regardless of when you are set up within your very own backyard, or just located in a picnic area, perhaps maybe even in a campground, being aware of outdoor food safety tips or measures will very easily make certain that both you and the family members of yours are actually shielded through food-borne health issues and avoid crashing through common accidents.
If you live in north or central Bangalore, District 6 is the place I recommend for a chill hang-out session with friends over a beer, or two, or many.
Even if you live in other parts of Bangalore, hoofing it to District 6 is not at all a bother as the place is situated within a 2-min walk from a Metro station (Sandal Soap Factory) on the North-South line.
Our gang went there for a relaxed Sunday afternoon to catch up over drinks and their limited time only sizzler menu.
It’s been a long, long time since I had some good (and I mean gooood) Pan-Asian food. So when I got an invite to come try the Mandarin Calling food festival at Oko in Hotel Lalit Ashok, I didn’t think twice before accepting.
I’ve visited Lalit Ashok several times before, but it’s been mostly on work – seminars and conferences, and the like. This was my first time there dining at a proper sit-down restaurant.
