On the corner of the 6th block opposite Sony world Koramangala is the “America’s healthiest restaurant” as they claim, the Au Bon Pain (pronunced as o-bo-pe).  Au Bon Pain started in Boston and has been selling fresh baguettes and croissants since the 70’s. Finally, it has found its way to India through Bangalore.  Their coffees are cheaper than other cafe but taste really good, though their pastries and breads have the same prices in most cafes.

It’s been awhile since I had homemade meatballs so I thought of making one this weekend. I prepared the meatballs and freeze them. Tonight, I fried several meatballs and toss them in the spaghetti with tomato sauce. So, Monday night is spaghetti and meatballs night 🙂

Whenever my laziness overcomes me, a trip to Delicacy in Koramangala saves me from hunger. Delicacy is a small restaurant on the 4th Block in Koramangala that especializes on Chinese, Thai, Singaporian, and Malay noodles and vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes.   My favorite is the Malaysian noodles, which is a flat noodles with dark brown sauce mixed with chicken and vegetables. Another regular pick is the crispy chicken. Momos and dumplings are really good too. A must-try is the crispy chopsuey. ...

Along the residential houses and sometimes beauty parlors and some software offices in Jakassandra Road, Koramangala, hidden a sweet treat, Mamamia! Gelato.  Driving along the road, it would go easily unnoticed, maybe the location is not really good, as it is quite hidden, however, the ice cream flavors are really yummy.   I love to try new flavors, and Mamamia! just really gives those flavors that you would normally not get in a typical ice cream shops. In my several visits, I had the flavors...

A friend recommended me to try momo or dumpling at Zingron. Zingron is a restaurant in Koramangala that serves Naga cuisine as well as other North-East India dishes. Zingron is one of the restaurants in Bangalore that serves pork aside from the usual fish, chicken, and mutton. I ordered two servings of momo, one was steamed and another was fried. The momos were delicious however I waited at least 30 minutes before I got my order.  The price was quite expensive compared to other momo restaurants...

Jam is really sweet and sticky, isn’t it? Yeah, yeah :p I’m not really fond of jam because it’s too sweet that I feel I am just eating sugar and corn syrup, and aside from that, I always think that those fruits that are made to jams are the rotten ones.  However, from my recent trip to grocery store, I found this bottle of whole strawberry preserve and thought of trying it. Well, the bottle of this whole strawberry preserve really has whole strawberries, as in whole, not cut...

I’m a big fan of Gouda cheese, well, most cheeses, but I found gouda cheese as best accompaniment with the cheddar cheese for pizza, cheese sandwich, spaghetti sauces, cheese and wine, and the simple cheese and crackers. Few weeks ago, there seemed to be a shortage of gouda cheese in the supermarket that I panic bought the only whole block of gouda cheese available in the cheese counter in Spar. Now, with only 3 months left before it expires, I am wondering now on how can I finish it…...
