Corner House – Preserving the memories

Hot Chocolate Fudge

Corner House has always been one of Bangalore’s iconic hangouts. It stands firm with it’s traditions while the city around it keeps changing. I remember their excellent hot chocolate fudge and cake fudge, two of my favourites from their short, but full menu.

Matteo Coffea – My New Hangout

I walked in with great hopes for Matteo Coffea and I was not disappointed. It has an excellent ambiance which, in spite of it’s large rectangular layout, doesn’t feel too exposed or open.

Angeethi – Museum Inn, Church Street

Dal Makhani, Kadai Sabz and Naan

The ambiance was nice and very low light, which made it difficult to take proper photos. We sat down at a table for six and ordered a hara bhara kabab, dal makhani, kadai sabz and a couple of naans (all in photos).

Noodle Bowl

Initially, I thought of just ordering a lime soda but then I read the description for ‘Walk to the Wok’ and was intrigued. I have been to countless buffets but nothing quite like this one before.

5 Spice – A Must Visit in Mumbai

5 Spice, Fort, Mumbai

All in all, 5 Spice is a restaurant that would have got a 5 on 5 had it not been for the degrading service standards. I wish they pick up. For now, a 4 out of 5 is all I can give.

The Great Suspender – Save your Memory

The Great Suspender

I used to run Ubuntu on my work laptop and while it was great at almost everything I routinely did at work, it was horrible at browsing.
