Get Stoned with Ice Creams at Stoned Monkey!

Koramangala is a food hub, with a new restaurant opening every now and then! The recent addition is Stoned Monkey, a dessert parlor which serves some fresh and delicious stoned icecreams. A tiny outlet with a bright-backlit wall and colorful illustrations of monkey.



Visited post-lunch with a friend to grab some of their special sundaes! The place had few customers who were indulging in icecreams and the happiness on their face said everything. I even had an opportunity to interact with the owner of the branch, who was kind enough to explain the process of Stone Icecream (sundaes made by beating up icecreams and sweet add-ons on a frozen stone).


Interesting fact – The Master (person who works with ice-cream), creates 31 varieties of stone beaten sundaes with 6 basic flavors (Vanilla, Chocolate, Butterscotch, Coffee, Strawberry, and Blackcurrant). The ice-creams are brought in from the central kitchen in small quantities to maintain the freshness and taste. They also sell Red Velvet and Chocolate cupcakes in small quantities.

Strong Coffee + Dark Chocolate + Milano Cookie = Via Milano! Probably the best way to describe. The usage of original Milano cookie adds flavor which is not found in its substitutes. Subtle in flavor, with light bitter notes. The joy of being able to have coffee and chocolate is immense!


Black Mischief is the only blackcurrant-based sundae. It is mixed with vanilla, sponge and white sauce (liqueur flavored) giving it a punch! A scrumptious treat not to be missed.


Cheese Garlic Bread, soft bread topped with chili flakes, garlic and a generous amount of melting cheese! This is a must need in between icecreams.


I’m a kind of person who loves to end a meal with sweet paan and in this case, icecream meal 😛 It is pretty obvious where I’m heading with this – Paan Banaras! A vanilla based ice cream with home-made maghai paan, dates, gulkan, topped with tutti-frutti and whipped cream! A delight in each bite 🙂


The prices may seem little high, but the taste and quantity make up for it. Three cheers to the entire team and happy helpers. I had a great experience and will surely be back for more! Highly Recommended 🙂

Cost: ₹500 for two people.

Coffee and more at Chetty’s Coffee

Weekends are lazy and we usually head out for breakfast! This weekend turned out to be better with an invite from Chetty’s Coffee to try their menu.

Chetty’s Coffee is a small place located on 80 feet road, amongst many other restaurants. Wooden interiors, bright yellow walls with a little place to stand is the best way to describe this outlet 🙂

The menu is designed well, consisting of 8-10 dishes which are simple yet unique. Avalakki Dose, Vegetable Dose, Pickle Dose, Paddu (paniyaram), Anjeer Halwa, Shavige are their special dishes. They also serve the regulars such as Upma, Idli-Vada, and Masala Dose.

Upma-Kesaribath and Shavige, is probably the best way to start any day! Piping hot Upma, delicious kesaribath, and perfect ottu shavige, not to forget the tasty Chutney, which blends well with upma and shavige. This place can change your take on upma, so give it a try even though you’re not a fan of it!

Anjeer halwa packs right amount of sweetness and is an absolute pleasure to indulge in!

Moving on to dose, they serve 3 varieties – Avalakki, Pickle, and Vegetable dose. Avalakki Dose is soft and just melts in the mouth. However, the Pickle dose needs a little work on its taste. The vegetable dose probably leaves you wondering which all vegetables are in it! Needless to say, a different try yet tasty.

Indian breakfasts usually end either with a coffee/chai and in our case, a coffee and masala chai! Masala chai flavors were on point, it’s tough to just stop with one cup!

On the whole, we had an amazing breakfast experience. Since it’s a small joint, take away is the best option. The place is well maintained with quick service. Three cheers to the staff who made sure we had a happy breakfast 🙂 Will surely be back for more.

Indian Paratha Company

Indian Paratha Company is an upscale cafe which sits on the NH4, near to Bengaluru International Airport with one of the best views to offer. The main concept is to be a pitstop for riders and travellers which provides fresh, fast vegetarian food.


We were here as a part of FBAB meetup and IPC had decided what they wanted to serve us. They had a list of items which were popular and we started with a lassi – Patiala Lassi is what we needed after a long drive on a hot sunny day. It was more than just a welcome drink. The curd is blended perfectly, the sweetness is on point and was topped off with Kesar for additional flavours.


Pakoda Platter is the best way to spend an evening while sunset was a bonus view! The platter contained Onion Pakoda and Paneer Pakoda, were crisp and the spices were perfect.


Achari Masti Paratha was one of our favourites. The filling was just amazing, spices were a treat to taste buds. It was served with curd, pickle, chilli chutney and few slices of onion and capsicum which went hand-in-hand. Spicy food lovers gotta try this.


Parathzza, a unique combination of Paratha and Pizza,  we got to try Paneer Tikka Parathzzaa. The base was perfectly cooked while the stuffing was made up of paneer and topped with cheese. Spices could’ve been improved and addition of sauce or pickle would’ve been better.


Kulfi is our all time favourite dessert. Nothing can match the fun in eating it. The plating of Kulfi was just so simple and appealing. We were served with a great Kulfi indeed.


Irish Coffee was a layered drink with Caramel at the bottom, Cream in the middle and Coffee on top with ice cubes. Three layers with three different flavours was surely a tickle to taste buds.


A very well maintained place with friendly staff to take care of the customers. Small world which offers great food. Three Cheers to IPC team 🙂

Address – Kasaba Hobli, Devanahalli, 10KM from International Airport, Bengaluru.
