Fabelle Chocolates – one of the most celebrated luxury chocolate brands in the country, launched its latest gourmet chocolate boutique in the city at ITC Windsor.
As part of the launch activity, the folks from ITC Windsor arranged an elegant musical soiree, which was paired with the most sumptuous dessert plates – four courses of pre-plated creations, made from single-origin chocolate sourced from Venezuela, Ghana, Ecuador and Madagascar.
On Monday, Snubnose and I did our regular stop at Barbeque Nation to sample some of their special edition Southern Heat food festival that focuses on South Indian foods.
Barbeque Nation always does these events in a big way – so when you go, you can expect a humongous variety of dosas, idlis served table side, live counters serving food prepared to your taste, and tons more food in the main buffet. You never leave hungry from a Barbeque Nation.
There was heavy traffic (so what’s new about that in Bangalore) all the way to the restaurant, and Snubnose and I entered ravenous and ready to do justice to all the food on offer.
The kids always expect something big for our wedding anniversary celebrations, and it’s usually pretty easy to deliver as our anniversary is just one day prior to Children’s Day in India. So, there’s always something to do.
This year, we opted to do the Sunday brunch at Limelight in Royal Orchid Hotel off Airport Road.
Last weekend, I was down with a very bad cough and cold. As I prepared to reach for my trusty Benadryl for some relief, K suggested that brandy would make a better alternative.
I have had a bottle of Janus Brandy in my pantry for quite some time lying unopened – ever since the Janus Brandy event, and it was definitely more tempting to have a glass of brandy than a thimbleful of cough medicine.
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.
