The Academy of Pastry Arts - Learn baking and culinary by experts

Who doesn't love desserts? In fact, I would wait for the desserts to arrive at my table during buffets. The plus point of the desserts is their ability to please the eyes and palate in one shot. While I enjoy the desserts, a thought process of what ingredients were used, how much effort and how's it prepared makes me always curious. Because I believe baking is an art! I have realized it in a hard way after failed miserably at my attempts to bake a foolproof cake. Well, Apart from Google & Youtube, I always wanted someone to guide me throughout the process of baking and making the most delicious pastry. Thanks to the Academy of Pastry Arts , which aims at churning out budding pastry chefs and entrepreneurs, who no longer need to look for overseas opportunities to master the art of baking and culinary. The Academy organized a live demonstration of Berry Vanilla Gateaux - a Modern French pastry by Chef Kimberly Rozario

Sindh Kitchen, Malleshwaram

Positive - Decent fine dining place, Sindh cuisine

The food trails of India are infinite and one among them is Sindhi cuisine. The Sindh, though not a part of modern India, but has its food roots widespread in India and beyond. Sindhi cuisine has numerous signature recipes curated long ago and the food culture is still favorite of many. This was my first introduction to Sindhi cuisine at Sindh Kitchenand I was curious & ready for a Sindhi palette.

Sindh Kitchen, Malleshwaram

Located in Malleshwaram, near to Mantri mall - A metro ride led me to this place. A lift to the 3rd floor opened up an ethnic ambiance of Sindh Kitchen. The well-arranged seatings with the windows curled up with curtains overlooking the streets of Malleshwaram. The aptly chosen ceiling lightings with subtle interiors and jaali partitions were pleasing to me. They do have a private dining area well maintained rustic look…

Have you BEEN THERE & DONE THAT yet? Well If you haven't - then you must be there! Wondering which place am I referring to? Formerly popular as HighNote, now retitled as BTDT? - Been There Done That?

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, HSRwith 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 artson 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…

Magnolia - Pan Asian rooftop restaurant, Koramangala

Koramangala has always been an ideal place when it comes to restaurants. In fact,  I envy the Koramangala residents for having great restaurants in the vicinity. A number of times when I drove 80 feet road, Koramangala 3rd block - The red lanterns of Magnolia always impressed me. Also, read that this place started in early 2000 -  used to be the go-to restaurant to dine in Koramangala and still has been the recommended restaurant for Pan Asian food. On an evening, we finally stepped into this rooftop restaurant to savour our taste buds with Pan Asian cuisine.

Ambience

The ambience here is spectacular with spacious lit up roofs - a feel of starry nights, hanging stars and umbrellas, red lanterns to adore, water wall - a feeling of rain, comfortable sofa seatings and indoor plants. The special interiors include a 3D wall- this was one of the unique interiors which Magnolia impressed me. Shockproof led lights to capture a long exposure shot - that's interesting to try some photography …
