Meal Diaries – 20th FBAB Meetup!

Bengaluru is known for being a platform for start-ups to shine. As technology improves, even other aspects need to improve and thus opening unlimited opportunities. In the brink of food delivery problems, Meal Diaries has started it’s operations. It’s a new startup from 3 close friends who are working hard to provide Indian & Continental food while being light on the pockets. They’ve a daily changing menu and deliver in the time slots prefered by us. We were invited to try their dishes as a part of FBAB meetup and here’s our take on it.

Salads weren’t our go-to dish, but this changed our take on them. They served us three varieties of salads, Asian Green Salad with Lemon Coriander Dressing, Yasai Salad with Spicy Mayo Dressing and Vietnamese Salad with Sweet & Sour Dressing. For the first time, we liked salads. Exotic greens, fresh crunchy vegetables, soft chicken, mayo, lemon coriander and flavours made the whole eat a great joy! Asian Green & Vietnamese Salads are available with chicken too.

We were served three quick bites, out of which Pita Pockets were one of our favourites. The pockets are soft, the mixture (Corn Fritter/Chilly Chicken) was perfect and dressing makes it a great start.

Wheat Wrap, a definite filler. A wrap stuffed with Veg Asian/Chocker Tikka leaves you wanting for more.
Just when we thought the quick bites were done, we were served with Burgers.

Chicken Schezwan Burger was one of the best that we have tried to date. Soft & juicy chicken patty, layers of vegetable and cheese left me with happiness. All the quick bites were served with Chilli Sauce or Spicy Mayo, Fried potatoes or Potato Wedges.

Main Meals had a lot to offer without compromising on taste. It is divided into two sections, Homely Indian (Indian dishes) and Exotic Global (continental dishes). Bhindi Masala with Pakodi Kadhi Meal is a complete package both in terms of the taste and the items served, which contained Dry Bhindi Masala, Pakodi Kadhi Curry, Paratha, Ghee Rice, Raita and Green Garm Salad.

Gobhi Paratha with Chola Meal & Onion Cheese Chilly Paratha with Black Dal Meal where the parathas are flavoured and served with special gravies.

After a long list of Indian meals, we moved on to the Exotic Global. We started on a high note, Sri Lankan Fish Curry with Steamed Rice which packed a lot of flavours and fried fish chips accompanied the curry perfectly.

Veggie Laksa Meal was a huge burst with flavours, and visually has a great set of colours. Slices of lemon, coriander, nacho chips and curry leaves are a great extension to the dish.

Tian Vegetables with Saffron Rice, a simple dish with a variety of vegetables cooked with large amounts of cheese and spices which go hand in hand with rice. It is served with cucumber-capsicum salad and fries.

Mushroom Ravioli in Tomato Concasse, a dish which is usually found only in a decent Italian restaurant and isn’t found in takeaway menus, but Meal Diaries have worked out and are able to get it done. It is best when the dish is warm. It is served with cucumber-capsicum salad, fries and garlic bread.

No meal is complete without desserts, and here we finished in style with Ras Malai & Gulab Jamun. Ras Malai was perfect, the sweetness and the flavours were on point. Gulab Jamun is undoubtedly famous in Indian meals, and having them was a joy.

The Egg Factory

Love Egg Delicacies and can’t find a good place? Fret not, as an outlet of The Egg Factory has been opened in New Bel Road, right opposite to Truffles. This is the place just made for eggetarians says “The Egg Factory”.

So for starters, we ordered ‘Kejriwal’  just because of the name 😛 which is a bread toast with a half-boiled egg placed on it and topped off with Onion, Tomato, Green Chilli’s, Coriander leaves and very few spices giving a mild taste.

Burma Toast is kind of a sandwich of egg top casing and toast with few veg fillings and chili sauce. It was in contrast to Kejriwal toast in taste being very spicy.

ef (13)

Bull’s Eye is a simple sunny-side-up egg topped with traces of  pepper powder, served with 2 slices of toasted bread and butter.

ef (8)

Hot Chocolate is a decent drink, fluid in consistency and not much of chocolate.

ef (10)

For the main course, we ordered Frittata A’la Mexicana, 3 egg omelette filled with Mexican beans, salsa sauce and cheddar. We apparently forgot to a take picture of this amazing dish! and continued with Scrambled eggs with toast, because we wanted to try!

ef (6)

For desserts, we ordered Choco Sin. It’s just a chocolate mousse with chocolate brownie in the base and topped with cream.

ef (4)

And for smoothies we ordered Chlorophyll Fix which consisted of Basil, Mint and few other natural ingredients and Blend it Like Hawaii which is a mixture of tropical fruits!

ef (2)

While each dish had a unique taste, Chlorophyll Fix and Blend it like Hawaii had a different tale which finally changed the entire view of the place. We felt the Chlorophyll Fix was not properly done in terms of ingredients added while it’s aroma was like taking a stroll through a rainy forest. The Blend it like Hawaii, couldn’t taste any distinct fruits and it tasted more like normal pulpy mango drink.

Must Try – Toasts and Frittata A’la Mexicana.

Downsides – Some of the smoothies need a work around and needs improvement. And it’s also difficult to find a parking space as it attracts lot of crowd easily.

Few more amazing pictures!

The whole set up is wonderful when it comes to the staff and the ambiance. Pleasing ambiance with indoor and outdoor wooden seatings and the natural light added up to the beauty of the place, and to make it more interesting the menu is printed in Kannada and English which is rarity nowadays 🙂 We would surely be back for more Eggxotic memories down the lane! 🙂

Address – #67 Ground Floor, Opposite to Truffles, 80 Feet Road, New BEL Road, Bengaluru.
