Eating out with kids

Eating out with kids

by

I get to visit a lot of really cool dining joints because of the blog. But when it comes to eating out with the kids, I tend to visit the same familiar haunts pretty much all the time.

That’s primarily because of Piglet. He’s not very adventurous with his food and he’s still not at that stage where he will sit patiently while we eat. Of course, we have taken him to plenty of restaurants but we’ve ended up relying heavily on the iPad to keep him occupied. Not the best of situations. When we are all out together, I really like to have all devices put away as much as possible.

But there are some restaurants that hit the family friendly sweet spot just right, and we tend to visit them again and again. Here is a list of our favorite joints and why we love them.

If you love Delhi street food, head out to the nearest Barbeque Nation immediately as they are having a fabulous Dilli street food festival going on till Sunday.

I visited last week to find out what was on offer, and as it turns out, there is quite a lot.

Inspired by the Spring weather in Italy, Chefs Vittorio and Sasha from Ottimo, ITC Gardenia have come up with a set of unique dishes that showcase all the best qualities of the asparagus – both green and white versions.

And of course K and I had to visit and try out their delectable creations.

Fine Dining Options on Outer Ring Road – The Courtyard Marriott and Fairfield

Fine Dining Options on Outer Ring Road – The Courtyard Marriott and Fairfield

by

If you live or work in the Outer Ring Road section of Bangalore (particularly in the IT hub from KR Puram to Sarjapur), you would know and lament the lack of decent dining options available.

For quite some time, it seemed that for office gatherings, you were confined to the Park Plaza hotel (a good option but gets tired if you go there every time), or Absolute Barbecue (which is impossible if you are trying to book a place on short notice). If you opted out of these, well, there was pretty much nothing decent on offer close by.

All that’s changed now with the fine dining options at Courtyard Marriott / Fairfield hotel near Kadubeesanahalli. We tried out MoMo Cafe and Kava, and absolutely enjoyed our experience there.

Last weekend, Burger King unveiled a new limited-edition whopper called appropriately enough Angriest Whopper. It has been available in other countries

It comes with an extremely angry looking red bun (red because it is baked with hot spices, and not because of any food coloring).
