The Colony Gastropub - HSR, Bangalore

HSR is tending to become the new pub hub and foodies favourite next to Koramangala and Indiranagar. Hanging out in Koramangala has been my daily routine. For a change, driving further we landed up in HSR. The Colony Gastropub in HSR is newly popular terrace bar and impressive graffiti arts - which has gained popularity among the foodies. So I decided to check in and explore this place.

Ambience


The Colony Gastropub is located in the 27th main road, HSR with the honey seeking bear logo. There is a public parking space in front of the restaurant and also they provide valet parking for the cars. Parked the vehicle in front of the restaurant and walked into the lift. As I entered the 3rd floor, the beautiful graffiti arts on the walls caught my sight. They have a rooftop terrace bar on the 4th floor and decent indoor seating on the 3rd floor. Coming to the rooftop ambience - its magical for a night mood and party lovers. The wall graffiti, posters and quirky quotes will really bring a smile on your face.The vertical gardens, cosy lightings and wall art are a plus. Background music played is well chosen and adds up to the night.

Food


The menu is perfect for Continental cuisine lovers. They have unique varieties from starters to deserts. They also have options in Modern Indian cuisine. They also serve beef and pork menu. The food presentation tempts any foodie to grab a bite here.

Starters
We started off with Greek Mushroom Saganaki - The fried cheese and tomato base went well with the mushrooms. This is one of their signature dishes and a must try for mushroom lovers. From non-veg starters, we ordered Peri Peri Chicken - The peri peri sauce and spices were prepared in-house and the chicken was tandoor grilled. So this dish is absolutely delicious and spicy. Then we got the Rosemary Paneer Tikka - Paneer marinated in cashew nuts was aptly grilled and tasty.

Pizza
We ordered Mexican bell peppers-pesto-zucchini pizza - Thin crust pizza was hot, delicious and lip-smacking. If you are a thin crust pizza lover, you will really love it.

Desserts
Lavender Pannacotta with Blueberry sauce - The Blueberry sauce is addicting and impressed me. This was more like a cheesecake topped with blueberry sauce. The combination was good as we ate.

Mocktails
Fruit punch and Virgin Mary - The mocktails were great too. Fruit punch was amazing.

Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace, Bengaluru

"To not know what happened before you were born, is to forever remain a child" - Cicer, Roman philosopher. History and heritage have always excited me. The palaces, forts and rulers, and what remains today is a small part of their dream centuries ago. Being in Bengaluru for such long years, I had this urge to discover Bengaluru's history and heritage. A weekend fortnight before, I chose to visit the Bengaluru fort and Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace, Bangalore which is located in the heart of the city market. The Bengaluru fort covered a huge area and also enclosed the Tipu's palace. Sadly, only 5% of the fort remains today. Have a look to discover Bengaluru Fort and its history. Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace is a unique palace. A typical palace will have rich marbles, carvings and filled with luxury. But, this is an unconventional palace made up entirely of teak wood and has its own grace. So, let me take you through the tour of this palace. [caption id="atta

Vani Vilasa Sagara - Magnificient dam view and an Engineering marvel

As we grow older, our time with our parents becomes more limited. I believe that at some point in our adult lives we should take the time to travel with our parents.  My parents are the coolest and supportive of my travelling endeavours.  When it comes to planning the trip with my parents, I take extra care to choose places of their interest - mostly architecture and nature. I'm born and brought up in Bangalore (also my mother's hometown) and we have settled in Bangalore for around 25+ years. My Dad's native is a small village Sirihalli, which is in Shimoga district. It had been a long time we visited my grandparents as a whole family. So we decided to take a road trip to Sirihalli. A list of places marked down on the way and we started out to hit the Tumkur road. The first destination - VaniVilasa Sagara dam. My Dad loves driving car, I can say its the best thing he enjoys.   Often, I travel with a group of friends and sometimes for a family break, I plan a trip with my pa
