I had been to the launch of Golden Rice a few months ago, back then it was one of the few exceptionally good North Indian cuisine restaurants in Marathalli area serving delicious signature preparations in an affordable manner. This time they are hosting a limited period food festival to celebrate the history of Kebabs and Roti, a combination that has been savoured for a long time now and I was all eager to check it out!
North Indian food
Dhaba Estd 1986 Delhi – Marathalli, Bangalore
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.
Spice Terrace at JW Marriott – All New Menu by Chef Abdul Quddus
Spice Terrace is one of the many premium restaurants housed inside JW Marriott which is located steps away from the lush gardens of Cubbon Park and close to the UB City, the heart of CBD. I was here around a week back to experience the launch of revamped Spice Terrace which also included a delectable Awadhi and North West Frontier food trail designed by Master Chef Abdul Quddus.
Helloo Delhi – Koramangala
Koramangala doesn’t shy away from options when it comes to choosing a dining destination, the entire space is packed with every kind of restaurant you can ever imagine of. But then I personally feel that there are relatively few restaurants that cater to true North Indian cuisine. Helloo Delhi is one such place located at the heart of Koramangala, 4th block to be specific (lil ahead of Flipkart Signal when traveling towards Sony world), the brand is well established and their first outlet is located in HSR Layout which was opened 3 years ago.
Box8 – Online Food Delivery Service!
Box8 is a successful online food delivery start-up which emphasizes on technology and delivery aspects to provide a wholesome dining experience at your home. Their current operations are spread across Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore with over 10,000 orders per day, which is huge! So I’ve been planning for a long time to order from them but never got a chance to do so as I stay with my family which translates to less home delivery eating sessions. But when Box8 contacted me for a small tasting of their offerings i instantly took it up, and at the end of it we (folks at my home) all loved the overall experience.
The Yellow Chilli – Church Street
The Yellow Chilli is a chain of restaurants designed and curated by celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor, a renowned face in Indian culinary space. He is known as a TV Show host, author of best selling cookbooks and winner of many food awards. TheYellow Chilli is known for its premium and high quality family dining experience. The brand offers a gastronomic tour of our nation as the menu here showcases some of the classic dishes inspired from North West Frontier, Mughlai and Punjabi cuisines.
Great Thali Experience – Indian Kitchen, MG Road
Indian Kitchen is your one stop destination to get authentic signature dishes from Kashmir to Kerala, so basically it is known for Pan Indian cuisine. The place takes pride in presenting the rich heritage of Indian cuisine in a very humble manner with more emphasis on taste and richness of every preparation. A lot of restaurants are known for serving full sized Thali (which is usually vegetarian), but at Indian Kitchen you can choose between 4 variants of Thali – Veg, Chicken, Mutton and Fish! The fact that all of this is unlimited makes it even more tempting and irresistible. Adding to that, decor of the place is quirky as the walls here are covered with some intense art work which beg you to stare at them.
Salt – Indian Restaurant Bar & Grill, Koramangala
Salt – Indian Restaurant Bar & Grill is the latest entrant in Koramangala. The place is known for serving modern Indian cuisine with a healthy twist. One glance at their menu will make you realize that the food options available here is a well balanced combination of North Indian and South Indian delicacies along with certain unique snack items which breaks the monotony found in other restaurants.
