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.
Sula wines recently presented all the alcohol that are under their umbrella in a roadshow recently.
As you can imagine, it was one massive exhibition with a huge number of brands showcasing their wines and liquors that they work with. Experts from all over the world – Brazil, Argentina, the south of France, all were there keen to explain to us what makes their wine different, and how they make it.
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.
Piglet’s horse riding classes are going on in full steam. His initial reluctance and fears were wiped away within the first five classes, and he’s now getting confident on his seat, even eschewing the beginner ring, and instead holding his reins to control the horse.
I have also started to feel a little more relaxed about these classes. I was nervous initially because a scared Piglet can be pretty unpredictable, but the teacher was wonderful, calming him down, and riding with him until he got comfortable.
So now that I am a little relaxed, I thought I’d spend a little time honing my till now non-existent photography skills and try to capture those free horses who are not involved in the class.
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.
