So there are few places in Namma Bengaluru that flash my mind when it comes to describing the ideal nightspot for partying with DJs who are hosting parties, famous international and local bands coming down to play, various live performances and so on. Blue Frog is one among them, and with a location that is right at the centre of the city, it has managed to do extremely well even in the times of turmoil (read as highway alcohol ban and the dull period when church street was getting renovated) But then, Blue Frog being a casual lounge does offer an amazing array of food and cocktail options to choose from and this post here will give you all a quick glimpse of what a meal for two on a quiet Sunday afternoon looked like for me. Plus, they’ve got a new menu as well so let’s jump in straight to check out what it looks like.

A laid-back afternoon it was and we were glad to catch up with Chef Vikas himself who started the proceedings with the signature Sriracha’s Som Tam which we all loved, it is a green papaya salad that’s prepared on your table. But this is not it, read on to know more about our entire journey across all the courses of our meal.

We have many restaurants in Namma Bengaluru, some of them are functional, some are considered to be posh and some restaurants claim to use homemade ingredients, am sure whatever I mentioned up here doesn’t follow any sequence and probably sounds meaningless but what I want to convey is that the list of variety available here is literally endless! Maia is a restaurant that follows a very interesting concept, as the name itself suggests this restaurant is all about giving back to the mothers, the most important person in our life. It is not a typical restaurant where you walk in, order food and then scoot after paying the bill, there is a lot more that they have to offer! So read on to know more about this wonderful venture 🙂
I’ve been working in an IT company for over 3 years now and one primary source of entertainment for us folks are the traditionally hosted Team outings which in most cases end up in a restaurant! Adding more salt to the wound is when you’re office is in typical localities, i.e around Whitefield or Marathahalli. So after trying out almost all the eateries in these localities in the form of various types of visits – via office, on my own and blog coverage, there was a period of lul. Not many interesting options were left, and then when I heard the news that Dhaba is opening in Marathahalli, I was like okay this is something that I need to check out as my previous two visits to their Indiranagar outlet were so so good. This 30-year-old brand from Delhi has been expanding gradually and this is their 9th outlet in India, and second in Bangalore.
Smoke House Deli is having a special menu offering extremely delicious dishes with their own signature twists that will surely be a treat to your taste buds.

Milkshakes vs. Thick shakes? If you too are in this confusion then you got to visit Temptey’s. Yes, I know not all Bangaloreans will be aware of this brand and that’s when Grubitizer will come to the rescue 😎 So, Temptey’s as a brand is around a year old and they have opened 13 full-fledged outlets across India in this span one year, well this alone speaks loudly of their favoritism among the crowd. BTM Layout gets Bangalore’s first outlet and the place is so vibrant that will please you from the moment you step in.
Seafood is comfort food to a lot of folks out there (including me). But in my case I usually don’t get to eat much of these dishes at home, reasons being difficulty in getting your hands on the best ingredients and complexity of preparation as the meat is overly tender when compared to other meats. There are a lot of seafood restaurants across Bangalore that can satiate your cravings, some of the new and some legendary. This post is about one such legendary place, Searock that is serving some of the most authentic coastal dishes since 1985!! This is by far the best seafood meal I have ever had and if you’ve been following me on Instagram then you’ll know what to expect from this post here, if not you definitely gotta read it to know more about what possibly can be called one of the best coastal cuisine restaurants in Namma Bengaluru.

What is Sotally Tober … or was it supposed to be Totally Sober?! For me, this is the perfect example of a situation where you’re high on good spirits and start reading things upside down. Similarly, the place itself is very catchy in the eye – you find dim lighting all around, paint splash on the walls, chairs stuck onto the roof and many such titbits that make Sotally Tober a hit among the partygoers in Koramangala. A good party place has to have amazing music, great food, and exceptionally good cocktails … Well, this post will try to give you a glimpse of what you can expect from the new cocktail menu that was launched sometime last month.
