Grubitizer is back again after a brief hiatus. A lot has happened in the last 2-3 months, a mix of both positive and negative things, but then let’s save that story for some other day. Right now we’re going to talk about your favourite Pan Asian restaurant in the city, Sriracha! I’m sure a lot of you folks will be familiar with this brand, the iconic Pan Asian restaurant in the uber posh property, UB City! So when I heard that they are opening their second outlet in Indiranagar I was happier because it was now closer to my home. Feb 2019 is when this new place opened its doors to excite the gourmands, what sets this particular outlet different from the other one is the presence of two distinctive experiences, the Live Robatayaki and the Cambodian Khmer cuisine. We were here on a Saturday afternoon to check out the offering and the place was packed, like literally. Read on to know more about our dining experience.

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.

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!!
