Sancha Tea House in Bangalore is a bright and airy space tucked away in a corner of Lavelle Road, so small from the outside, you can barely see it. A friend and fellow blogger Soumya was invited for a tea tasting session here, and she kindly invited me to tag along with her, so one extremely hot Saturday afternoon, we went up and down Lavelle Road trying to find a parking spot, and trying to find this place, amongst all the teeny tiny boutiques over there.
Last weekend, I met up with fellow food bloggers when we all descended upon Kalmane Koffees in VR Mall for a sampling of some of their lovely coffees and short eats.
Once we were done with that event, we spent a lot of time shopping and generally hanging around in the mall, and there was so much to catch up on, that we ended up drifting into Cafe Noir for a late lunch.
Hangover on 12th Main Road in Indra Nagar celebrated its first anniversary recently, and they did it in style with a lovely printed invite to our house. Hangover does some marvelous alcohol, so in spite of release deadlines and everything, we cleared up our calendars for the evening to go visit.
I have never actually been into watching TV as a group. Movies, yes, but not TV. But watching the Suits premiere last month as a group was so much fun that I thought watching the VMAs would also be a blast.
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.
