Sweet Escape

I’ve been dreaming of the beach- a lot ( I even spent an hour on pinterest last night looking for pictures of the most beautiful beaches) . This morning I booked my bus tickets to Goa for a vacation next month, so it was perfect that my friend and I decided to grab lunch at ‘Om Made Cafe‘ in Koramangala.

Originally from Anjuna beach, Goa, this cafe can be a quick fix when in need of a vacation. As soon as I walked in, it felt like I’d been transported to a restaurant right by the beach. Its very laid back, and an ideal place to unwind while listening to some reggae.

The ambiance and decor are incredible- the space almost demands to be photographed.

Omelette from Outer Space

There is always that tiny cafe or restaurant that you love, that you hope no one else will ever find out about, because once other people realize how awesome it is, the whole world will start going there.

This is exactly what happened with ‘The Hole in the Wall’ cafe. 
It opened when we were still in college, in a garage behind Maharaja hotel in Koramanagala ( the cafe was quite literally a hole-in-the-wall) . Soon enough it became a place we frequented all the time- we bunked our morning classes to eat their warm waffles, went there during our lunch breaks for their club sandwiches, and when they opened up in the evening at 5 30, there we were again, waiting patiently so we could have an ‘awesome sausage sandwich’ or some french toast. Their English breakfast is the most famous, but their sandwiches and burgers are equally good . 
Cut to a few years later- they’ve got a space twice as big ( it’s not really a hole in the wall anymore) , and an ever bigger loyal fan base.
My recommendations for when you visit :
1. Waffles with caramelized bananas ( or pancakes, but I prefer the waffles)
2. The Meaty Cheeseburger
3. The Awesome Sausage Sandwich
4. The Hangover Remedy
Waffles with caramelized bananas
For those of you who wish to eat something healthy, they even have egg white omelettes with spinach ( The Great White) and Freshly sliced bananas with yoghurt, muesli and home-made syrup (below)

Disclaimer- For people who do not eat egg, this place doesn’t have too many options. But for the others, it is totally worth a trip!

I know that when I visit, I usually eat till I burst, so I wore something a little forgiving 😉

Killing It- Singh Size!

‘People who love to eat are always the best people’

These famous words by Julia Child couldn’t describe by brother in law, Pavandeep Singh, any better. Always a foodie, he pursued his passion and first love and so was born Tadka Singh!

Tadka Singh, the newest Punjabi fast food restaurant in Bangalore, opened its doors yesterday (you can see their facebook page here)

It has been so inspiring to see Pavan leave a successful family business to open his own restaurant!


My opinions are obviously highly biased, but I think the food is great! They serve authentic, fresh, healthy Punjabi ghar ka khaana . 

Tadka Singh is located on CMH road, opposite the Metro Station-  it is the brightest restaurant on the street and if you’re walking out of the metro station, there is no way the logo can be missed. 



It may have been a little cheesy of me, but I wore the restaurant’s colours to show my support on its first day 😛




Necklace- Colaba Causeway, Bombay


Peplum Top- Forever 21, Orange Clutch- H&M , Black Pants- Forever New;
Gold Bow Flats- Forever 21; Aviators- Only

A very happy me after a full meal (attempting to bust out some bhangra moves 😛 )




If you happen to visit the restaurant , and have any feedback- good or bad, please do mail us at tadkasingh@gmail.com

Love and hugs :))

Dessert Date

My first week of being unemployed is coming to an end, and I must say I really am enjoying it! ( for the time being at least)

Having a dessert date with your best friend on a Friday afternoon is extremely satisfying, especially when its at Spoonful of Sugar, which for us has always been a place of delicious gluttony.

People living in Indiranagar may have heard of it, it is located near the old Hema Stores ( now Nilgiris)

We had the Raspberry and Bailey’s Chocolate Gateaux and  the Strawberry Tart.

 Since it is the Chef’s birthday week, they were giving away complimentary Oreo Sin-Phony bars, which would be my recommendation if you ever visit there!

Sunglasses- Mango; Necklace- Forever New

Post our indulgence, we took a stroll in a park in Defence Colony  and proceeded to spend the rest of the afternoon there. (Details of my outfit below)

Scalloped Blouse- Forever New

Boyfriend Jacket- Forever 21
Nude Studded Flats- Steve Madden

Sitting on a bench under a tree all afternoon with good company is highly underrated :)

Black Skinny Jeans- Pepe Jeans

Rainy Day Out

I took the day off  from work and spent the day with a very close friend of mine. We started the afternoon with a dance show at the Alliance Francaise.  We went to watch the incredibly talented Tarantismo Creative Dance Company ( Check them out here ) take part in the Short and Sweet dance competition.

White Shirt- Zara ,  Oxblood Pants – Tibetan Plaza 

These oxblood pants are from Tibetan Plaza and were a steal at Rs 800. I love the gold zip detailing, and the fit is great.

Gold Hoop Earrings – Aldo Accessories

Watch- Fossil, Bag- Forever New

Gold Bow Flats- Forever 21

The afternoon was then followed by an evening of spiked nachos and Mangas at Monkey Bar.

The weather was lovely and the company, even better.

The perfect day off  :)
