Happy You Happy Me – 11th FBAB Meetup!

They say happiness comes in small packages and Happy You Happy Me is one such cafe. It’s small cafe which easily fills up and it’s relatively new. We got to try this place as invitees for 11th FBAB meetup.

They offer an amazing menu which consisted of few starters, burgers & sandwiches, desserts and couple of drinks. We started off with Corn Cheese Patties and Chicken Croquettes, both being a soft patty served with amazing choice of sauces.

Then we tried Chicken BBQ Burger and Mini Veg Burger. The veg burger had a great patty, but the bbq patty could’ve been improved.

In the sandwich section, we tried Mumbai Masala which was a spicy grilled treat. Mushroom-Chicken, which was served in a special bread topped with mushroom bits and filled with shredded chicken.

Pasta in Pesto was a filler for sure. They serve pasta in white sauce with broccoli, baby corn, tomato and chicken. The veggies go great with the pasta and sauce.

For beverages, we had Oreo Shake, a smooth drink that goes great with any of the sandwich/burger served here. The tiny bits of oreo are crispy surprise and it taste amazing. Lemon Grass Lemonade a drink which leaves you wanting for more. I would prefer if they served it chilled.

Desserts left us speechless. We got to try Orange Chocolate Marble, a cake with the zest of orange which reminded me of childhood. Banana Walnut Muffins. Chocolate Mousse, a small sized perfectly blended mousse. Blueberry Muffins didn’t live up to other desserts, could be improved.

Selling your sauces can be a dealbreaker, they’re amazing. Spread them with fellow foodies, it will be divine. This cafe packs an amazing ambience even though it’s small. They’ve used the board to put up the menu instead of getting it printed. A pocket-friendly cafe which serves amazing food. The place can host seats for 6-8 foodies. Finding a parking space isn’t a problem. Kudos for the staff and management, very humble and friendly in approach. We liked most of the dishes, but few of them need a workaround. We would surely be back for more oreo shakes and Chocolate Mousse.

We thank Nameesh for the invitation and Neha for having us over there.

Onesta

Onesta was on our MUST TRY list. After reading few reviews on Zomato, we got to know about their Gourmet Pizza collection.  We couldn’t wait to taste them and very recently we checked in!

We were given a table at the entrance and it’s arranged with ketchup, spicy toppings, zomato cards, menu card and what not! The menu is something special about this place. They offer some of the best dishes at amazingly low price. We ordered a couple of starters, pizzas and desserts to wrap up.

For starters we ordered Roasted Broccoli with Cheese. If you ever had a bad opinion on Broccoli, then this dish will definitely change your view. A perfectly roasted broccoli placed on a crisp base topped off with melting cheese *-* Not the best, but it’s a great dish!

and Sun Dried Tomato Bread was one that filled us the most. It’s a fresh bread, filled with a tomato that is purely sun Dried and little spicy filling which makes it an awesome starter!

For pizza’s we ordered Roast Potato & Garlic pizza, it was a great start with a small mistake. Garlic’s skin isn’t peeled before it goes on the pizza which leaves a bad taste after eating, one thing that can be changed.

and Bullseye pizza, a feast to the eye. Colours looked so appealing.  The perfectly cooked bull’s eye egg placed on a pizza with a medium crispy crust is a must try if you love egg.

For desserts we ordered Chilli Chocolate Tarts, soft based tart with layers of chocolate, caramel and red paprika to spice it up. It is an explosion of sweetness and a little spice. Black Forest Pudding, a pudding with layers of cake, cream and topped with Choco chips.

Food tastes amazing, and fills up your tummy soon. Some of the dishes were not available, so that’s a bummer! It’s a restaurant with outer, semi-open, wooden seatings and inner, closed seatings. The interior is best of the two while the exterior one is filled with greenery but prone to dust from the road. A Plus point is, they have a separate parking lot, so no worries about it. Kudos for the staff and management. Very humble and friendly in approach. Cleanliness and maintenance at its best. Ambiance is eye pleasing, externally filled with lush greenery and internally the walls are up with paintings 🙂
Reservation would be preferable if you’re planning on a weekend. We would definitely be back for more pizzas. Recommended!

The Great Indian Thali – 10th FBAB Meetup!

For those people who say vegetarian food is boring, must visit The Great Indian thali located on the 3rd floor of Lotus building at Kormangala. One of the best restaurants that serves authentic Indian Thali. Simple and elegant in ambiance with subtly lit lamps that creates a dramatic environment.

As invitees for #10thFBABMeetup, we visited TGIT. We were about 20 and had a large table reserved for us.

Welcome drink was Watermelon juice which was sweet and tasty. Starters were, Paneer Pancharatan Tikka – It wasn’t great but yes it tasted good. Paneer was a bit hard.

Mint aloo kebab – it was medium level spiced and tasty. Mutter kachori – miniature version of real kachori served with different types of chutneys. Tasted yumm. Golgappa – it was served with sweet and mint pani. One of the best golgappa ever had.

and Dahi Papdi Chat –  Papdi being dipped in different chutneys and topped with various spices, dahi and grated beetroot, carrot and pomegranate. Thumbs up for this chat.

Then, came the BIG PICTURE 😛 , the most awaited thali. Main course was started with Batura and Punjabi Chole. It tasted really great. Batura was soft and big enough that it just fills up the tummy. Fulka and roti was other varieties of breads served. As a combination for these, Dum aloo, Vegetable korma, Kadai paneer were served. They also had a dish made out of bitter guard ,forgot the name, but it tasted amazing. First ever time we liked a bitter guard recipe.  Then, Veg Biriyani with Raita, Steamed rice and Dal makhani were served and wrapped up the main course with simple curd rice.

Any meal isn’t complete without desserts. So, Gulab Jamoon, Moong Dal Tamatar Halwa and Rasgulla were served. To add up to this, Shrikhand was also served.

Each recipe had it’s unique taste. Our taste buds craved for more food but tummy was out of space 😛 Indeed, we had a great time at TGIT with other foodie friends.

Service was little messed up because we were too many in count, each time the server had to ask us and then serve it on the plate. But they tried their  best is what we have to say. Kudos to the organizers of #FBAB!

Must try – Golgappa, Papdi Chat, Dum Aloo, Vegetable Korma, Batura, Shrikhand.

Suchi Ruchi

Suchi Ruchi has been a regular visit in our neighbourhood. Situated near Malleshwaram 10th cross, more of a foodie cross, this restaurant has a pull even with Food Camp and few others being nearby. We have been here many times before and have tried varieties of food. This time was no different and visited on a weekday with a bunch of school friends in the late noon. We were all hungry and started ordering. They serve a lot of cuisines and we had many options to select from. Sorry if the images are bit bright.

We started off with Panner Tikka, Paneer manchurian, Panner Pepper Fry, Gobi Pepper Fry, Mix Manchurian, Baby Corn Manchurian.

Later on, we continued with Roti & Paneer Butter Masala and Benne masala dosa.

Must try – Panner Recipes and Benne Masala Dosa.

Downsides- Finding a Parking place is a huge task as it’s located in a busy junction. Service time is high, one should have patience to try here. All time crowded, so it’s difficult to find a seat for yourself. Maintenance could have been much better.

Pictures from our earlier visits.

No doubt they serve the best paneer dishes. The Paneer used is really fresh. Benne masala dosa was good, but the chutneys weren’t tasty. Other starters were all tasty but were disappointed with the taste of Gobi Pepper fry.

Pocket-friendly prices and yes, it is one of the good street food store. They’ve expanded and have made the space bigger than it used to be while being under the same management. They need to work on the service time if they plan on keeping foodies happy.
