I was conned today by a woman selling 'naati motte' (country eggs) in a bamboo basket. Bought a dozen for 6/- a piece. It was small in size and looked brown. On opening it the yolk was yellowish and not reddish, and suspecting it to be fake, i kept the shell under open tap and scrapped the surface with finger nail only to expose the while (original?) shell underneath.

Here is another biryani specialist in Maratahalli, The Bawarchi. Friend's feedback is good and will give a try this weekend.
Location: Karthik Nagar, just after the ISRO junction/U-turn.
For those who are not aware, in Hyderabad Bawarchi serves the best Biryani.

HSR Layout 27th Main seems to be evolving to a eating hub. Apart from a branches of all the regular outlets, noticing a lot of small eateries opening up. In addition noticed a lot of road side food carts and also a full fledged mobile food van.

I tried the Pav Bhaji and the Mumbai Tawa Pulao guy opposite the police station. Wasn't impressed with the taste. This is the autorickshaw guy on the footpath.

Sukh Sagar in Kormangala is still the place for Pav Bhaji.

Thanks for the feedback. Did notice the Auto guy. The food van was a different one, a tempo traveler kind of van. It was around the police station area itself. Noticed as I was driving by, so could not stop to see what kind of food was being offered.

27th main is evolving as a street food hub. If you are coming down from ORR, near the police station, you have the auto guys - Chinese, pizza on wheels, pani poori etc. Further down the road, there is one auto turned food truck and there are two tempo traveler turned food trucks - one is called hell's kitchen or something and have been there for some time. The other one is a new entrant.

There are many Momo guys, peppered through out the 27th main. Among them, my favorite is the guy who is next to the famous chat place (near to Multiplex super market) and the least favorite is the Big Fat Momo guy, next to NIFT.

Recently visited Naachiyaar Restaurant at Ulsoor, Bangalore. In simple terms I can describe it to be pathetic. I haven't had such worst food in my life ever. This is the first time I visited this restaurant. I have listed out few points below:

1. They are not connected to Chettinad cuisine by any way. They are just using the name and fame of Chettinad to run their business. I mean to say that the Cook who manages things is no way connected to Chettinad or has learnt Chettinad food preparation.

2. We had Crab soup, Chicken biryani, Chikken sukka, Veg meals. The chicken pieces in the biryani were like hulk. So big and so hard. I can strongly say that chicken will not be so hard when cooked, infact it is the rooster meat which becomes very hard when cooked. The biryani rice was so dry and absolutely no aroma in the biryani that it should have.

3. Veg meals was average. But the rice that was cooked looked like broken rice which is of low quality and cheaply priced.

4. The quantity of Chicken sukka was very less and the taste was average.

5. The lime soda which we ordered had a small hair at the bottom of the glass.

6. Hygiene seems to be simply not existent in this restaurant. Honestly I haven't seen any restaurant in this category to be so untidy. It looks like a cheap mess in terms of ambiance but not the price.

7. They use very old crockery items to serve. The biryani bowl had lost all its copper coating, the water pot looked like an untouchable thing, the soup bowl looked like it was never washed for years.

8. Service is very bad. We could see just one guy running around all the tables which was time consuming and irritating for all.

Hope I don't end up with food poisoning. I am happy that food was served on a plantain leaf. I can't imagine to eat food on their plates, if they had one.

Generally I get going with things and don't complain much. But this one was a very horrible experience which I never really expected. My family members just gave a nasty look at me for having suggested this restaurant I am more than 100% sure that I will never visit this restaurant for the rest of my life.

Can somebody recommend a nice bar where they'll be screening the semifinal match on Thursday?

My go to Chinese places after 3 very bad experiences at china Pearl are now:

1. Hunan Kormangala - Food is superb and quantity is good too. Price is above average but well worth it.
2. My other usual place is Chung Wah off MG Road, in the residence road cross. The lane which connects residency road and MG road. This is by far the best Chung Wah branch. VFM stuff and good food.

These are Indian Chinese places. Any other Chinese places worth checking out?

The Chung Wah in Koramangala near the Mosque, close by to Raheja Arcade used to be good a few years ago, no recent experience though.

I've heard good feedback from friends about Luo Han in HSR Layout (Veggie Chinese) and Aromas of China, Eva Mall (Both on "to-try" list for me).

Chung Wah, what I know is the MG road one I mentioned is the main one and rest are franchisees. Makes a huge difference cause the other 2 I went to Kormangala after Anand sweets and Sarjapur road were horrible.

Luo Han, went there thinking pure veg place run by chinese folks must be good. The food is not bad but here's the thing, they are extremely stingy in adding the chinese veggies like broccoli, mushrooms. All veggies just have tons of greens and peas and capsicum. After 3 visits I got bored. Secondly, never go there when it's crowded. The family members running the place serve and they have 1-2 waiters but extremely slow. There have been times when I waited for 1.5 hours for the food to arrive.

Aromas of China, yet to try out.

Apart from the regular chinese haunts, the 2 premium restaurants with awesome chinese food are Memories of China (Taj MG road) and Yauatcha (1MG Mall on MG road).

I have to also try the new stir fry place Ginger tiger in Indiranagar.

THE ONLY PLACE on Muesuem Road used to serve very good Lasagna. Even LaCasa on Jayanagar 10th Main. You can try any of these two places and you wont go wrong

For lasagna, try the old favourite, The Only Place on museum road.

Went to a couple of restaurants recently:

1. Paradise: Superb biryani (chicken), and extremly good kababs. Guys muct try the Seekh Kabab
2. Hotel Citrus, Cunningham road - Pretty decent but priced ok for the ambiance
3. Banjara Melting Pot - Super food and super service. I really enjoy the Indian food here. A must go if you are in Cunningham road. Not cheap though
4. Chung Wah - Has been my go to place for Chinese for a long time now. They always have the same quality of food, which suits me just fine. I dont know about the franchisees but the main restaurant on MG Road is superb and its very reasonably priced
