Worth a repeat visit only for the icecream.
That long shaped lemon its called "Gondhoraaj lebu or lemon". The king of smells lemon
If you want that lemon you can get it in bengali market in HAL and also at HKGN fish stall on CBI road. I get it from these places mostly.

There used to be a bengali shopkeeper who used to stock all the bengali newspapers and magazines. Ive forgotten the name of the shop. But its in the HAL market itself. He also used to make bengali sweets too which tasted better than or rather more bengalier than the KC Das ones.

The Cbi road is one that comes on the Mekhri Circle - hebbal- BIAL road.
This fish stall is right next to the Shell petrol pump on the cbi road. He stocks all bengali fishes plus some rare bengali vegetables and gondhoraj lebu. Fridays morning is the best time to go as it is then that fresh stocks for the week arrive. Fridays and saturdays.

We have currently shifted our loyalty to this shop as its close to my residence and also journey to HAL during evenings was quite a hassle. Hope this was helpful.

I did not see Corner House in your list,if you havent been there,then its a must go place,easily one of the most popular places in town.There is an outlet in Jayanagar 9th block which was my haunt right from my college days in Blore.They also have newer outlets at 5th block and in Basavangudi.

Corner House Ice Creams Pvt. Ltd. - Locations

Apart from that Cream n Fudge is another must try place,but this is in Koramangala 7th block, opp Forum on the Robert Bosch side.The Ferro Rocher one is a must try there.

I cant agree more with you.I think I know the shop you are talking about,it used to be a regular haunt during my Bangalore days,his samosas were mind blowing and it was always hot,people wouldnt even have the patience for it to cool down!The one I am referring to was the last shop iirc in the line right before you step into the vegetable market.Hope he is still there though.

As already mentioned, Corner House in Jayanagar 9th Block (opp Ragiguda temple) and Cream and Fudge Factory (this one is expensive as compared to other brands) would be decent choices.

Another one you can try is Polar Bear- they have some good flavours. The parlour is in JP Nagar 7th phase, near (i.e. after) Nandhini junction, asyou go towards Brigade Millenium.

You can try Natural's (the nearest one I know of is on Bannerghatta Road, near Adiga's, but there might be a closer one) and Svensen's (in Royal Meenakshi mall).

Yes if the guy wears dark rim specs and if his aged mom also used to sit in the shop with him, then you recall correctly. His sweets are definitely better i feel. Mostly i think you also would have tasted hot rosogolla. its amazing. KC Das here doesnt serve as good as what I get in my native place.

And you should taste the biryani and chicken items he brings in the palace grounds during Durga Puja. too good

Yes bang on the very same people.Yes the way he serves those rosos are amazing and its one real big mouthful!They have been there from time immemorial,I remember them from my college times to the times I was staying in LB Shastri Nagar some 7yrs back.The moment you enter the building itself,the aroma gets onto you even though this was the last shop in the lane.

Yesterday we went for dinner at California Pizza Kitchen on Indiranagar 100 Feet road, we came out of the outlet in about 2 hours completely dissatisfied with the food. Overall food was just ok, and not very tasty, we had Garlic Bread, Pasta, and Thin Pizza's, all vegetarian. My daughter commented about Pasta hardly having any white sauce.

Comparatively the Little Italy and Italia down the road are much better.

Apart from this there is Polar Bear and also a Gelato shop in a restaurant called Renee in 7th Block at the junction of 30th cross and 2nd main opposite Coffee Day

Found 'Barrels and Berries' at Brigade Gateway to be average. Their olive chicken was nice but over cooked, i felt like Chaplin cutting the boot. If it had been tender, it would have been fantastic. Their Olive pudding was also not soft, it wasnt moist either and quantity good enough for a baby. The chicken sandwich, it was good but nothing special there.

Don't go to CPK if you are a vegetarian - not worth it. However their non veg stuff is heavenly. Atleast the one in phoenix mall has quickly become one of my favorites. Its not even close to italian - their best selling stuff is a mix of italian and tex mex.

Wow that's surprising. CPK was the only place I could go to for decent veg food when I was in the US.

Any reason why you say it's not worth it for veg? Is the menu different from the US menu?
