Restaurant Review: Vaho Kafe blends health, fusion and taste! [3.5/5]

There are two versions of this review. Short version: Visit Vaho Kafe; order their fusion food if you are feeling adventurous, health food if you are feeling bloated or fat, and the weekday or weekend combos if you want to chill and enjoy their food. It’s simple, somewhat reasonable, and you can get takeaways! For the longer version, read on…...

Restaurant Review: Flechazo offers good food and experience! [4.5/5]

What are restaurants for? To sit down, order, enjoy the food, converse, pay the bill and be done with it? Many a serious foodie – more like food critics a la Anton Ego from the Pixar blockbuster Ratatouille – would say that is exactly how restaurants should be. However, times have changed. Food – from being a necessity once – has...

Restaurant Review: Echoes Koramangala, where food and service speak volumes [4/5]

The oft-cliched understanding in the restaurant business is that food quality and service speak much louder than a blitzkrieg of advertisements. But there’s a reason it has become cliched: It was widely true once, and still holds true – albeit in much fewer cases. Echoes Koramangala is one such place. We – some like-minded friends – visited the place, and...

Restaurant Review: Cafe Azzure is great for sundowners at the centre of Bengaluru, with not too much strain on the wallet [3.5/5]

Mahatma Gandhi Road, better known as MG Road, has been one of the best-known thoroughfares of Bengaluru, right from the days it was Bangalore. And one of its best-known intersections if the one where Brigade Road meets it. Having an eatery a few floors above the ground at one of the busiest intersections of one of India’s most happening metropolitan...

Restaurant review: Zaica on Nagawara Road is a genuine treat and reasonable on the pocket [3.5/5]

So here we were – just a handful of us on invitation – at Zaica on Nagawara Road, near Elements Mall in north Bengaluru. The light was dim, the place was mostly to us thanks to Mahashivaratri, and the review turned out to be a culinary treat of sorts, with Rajesh Pandey – when he got time from helming the...

Deja Vu Resto Bar review [****/5]: A slightly pricey but very entertaining eatery

Another one that I, Arkadev, somehow did not get around to writing. This was a visit to Deja Vu on September 10, 2016. Yes, I know. No, I’m not exactly lazy: I seem to be perennially tired. But that’s not the point of this post. Here’s having some deja vu – having the strong sensation that an event or experience...

Restaurant review: Yumlok [****/5] in Bengaluru is a pleasant surprise!

So, Arkadev here, with gratitude to you guys for being so patient. Here’s the review of Yumlok, a pure-vegetarian eatery where I and some other members of Food Bloggers’ Association of Bangalore, or FBAB, were invited to. This was in Brookefield. Full address: 1343 D-Block, AECS Layout, Kundanhalli, Brookefield, Bangalore. And we visited on December 11, 2016. This is the place: Imagine...

Restaurant Review: Freedom Cafe, an activist’s push for financial freedom [4/5]

Manohar Elavarthi has been an activist for more than 25 years. He has fought for the rights of sexual minorities, workers in the unorganised sector and women. But he is an activist with a difference. He wants his activism to continue, no matter what hurdle comes his way. The biggest such hurdle is money. And things are especially tough financially...
