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.
I was on a photography trip a couple of weeks back. Only instead of taking candid shots of the kids or the pup, or lovely stuff, or verdant Cubbon Park that I like to do (and share on Instagram), I have been taking ugly photos of Bangalore, of the havoc that the heavy rains caused on our roads.
I guess I was bored stuck in traffic jams (sometimes for a record 3 hours), just to travel a 5-km wide stretch of Outer Ring Road to get to my office.
Last weekend, I was in a mood to try something new. It’s been ages since I experimented with Italian food – so much easier sticking to the tried and tested recipes that work when you have two small kids (and especially when one – our Piglet is such a picky eater).
But I was bored and wanted to eat aglio olio spaghetti which I’ve enjoyed in a number of restaurants lately, and thought of replicating it at home.
It’s been a long time since I did a Mailbox Monday post. Sadly, I have not been receiving too many books of late. I’ve been rather disenchanted with the books that I did get, and well, things have been very ho-hum when it comes to my reading lately.
I am really loving all this back story into the Targaryen family that I am getting reading these various prequels to A Song of Ice and Fire. Dangerous Women that I read last year was fantastic, dramatic, and bloodthirsty all at the same time.
