Lunch Buffet @ Indi Joe

I had been to this restaurant called "Indi Joe" for lunch yesterday along with a friend of mine. My birthday treat for him was still pending :D. They have a lunch buffet costing Rs. 175. And the food was so delicious *drool*. The spread was mainly continental. There was around 5 different types of salads, two different soups, pasta, noodles, pizza, cheese(yes, u read it correctly), flavoured rice, plain rice, curries and related stuff. But, the best part were the desserts ;). Lemme count.. There was Black forest mousse, fruit salad, chocolate and walnut pudding, two kinds of pastries, strawberry ice-cream and kulfi. Whew !!! I had all the desserts except the strawberry ice-cream. Infact, you can make a meal out of the desserts itself. Both of us hogged like pigs. Infact, we hardly spoke during the lunch. Both of us were busy wolfing it down.

Shub: U will love this place. I dont know why we over looked this place while looking for restaurants for our friday lunches.

One important thing I realised: Dont ever have soup at a buffet. It fills you up and you will not be able to do justice to the remaining dishes. I skipped the soup yesterday and realised how many dishes I was able to eat.

And ofcourse, it felt real great when my friend said that It was an awesome treat :)

Bombay Blue

Although I claim to be a total foodie, I realized that I have not even put up a single post on any particular restaurant. So I am gonna start with a restaurant called "Bombay Blue". This is definitely one of "my kinda restaurant". I am sure certain people know what I mean... For the others, My kinda restaurant would be the one, which serves a variety of my favourite cusines (Italian, Mexican, American, Continental), is kinda fancy :D and the food is amazing. Generally in these multi-cuisine restaurants, they end up screwing up any non-indian cuisine... But Bombay Blue was nothin like that. The cuisines which are available are : Italian, Mexican, Lebanese and Indian. I am not gonna talk about the indian food there, cos I felt it was nothing great. It was good, but there are other places which are much more famous...

Coming to the other cuisines, I particularly liked the mexican fare served there. My fav being "Tortilla Chips with Salsa sauce". This is one of the must haves.... Even the nachos were good.

Among the Italian fare, they have a nice collection of pastas with the regulars like Arabiatta. I had Spaghetti with a mexican based sauce, mexican beans, american corn and sprinkled with crushed tortilla chips. This was quite good, but felt that the corn could have been baked along with the sauce so that it soaks up the flavour.

The soup was really good. I ended up having the regular "Sweet Corn soup". And he does not have a Tomato soup (another of my favourites).

Oh yes I forgot to talk about the Menu.... I mean the menu booklet. It was huge !!!! 16 pages in total (yup, I counted the pages). The pictures in the menu looked totally appealing.... U look at those pics and it induces a craving for the food depicted there.. atleast it happened to me... :D

The drinks were quite expensive... Iced Tea cost Rs. 69.... and the quantity is quite large too.... My suggestion, take one glass of iced tea and share it among two... Also happened to taste white wine... It was good tooo...Hmm.. me currently fantasizing about the wine I had that day.. *drool*.

Try the "Pita pockets" among the lebanese fare.. Its good too.... Sizzlers are also available... Have not yet tried them there.. Next time I go there, Sizzlers is what I will be having...

The dessert menu was nothing special though. Just the regulars...

Bombay Blue, Level-2, Bangalore Central, Commissariat Road, Bangalore-1

Be prepared for some pocket pinching.

Absolutely Nothing

Yesterday was one of those days when I did absolutely nothing. It was quite some time since I did that (absolutely nothing). Hee Hee. We had a holiday yesterday. So, got up late and did nothing. It was so amazing to just sit the whole day with nothing to do.... I agree it would get quite frustating if this was an everyday routine, but it would be great to do it (absolutely nothing) once in a while.. Try it out. Its worth it... Me feeling very very nice and relaxed today.

No Title

I find it so hard to come up with some meaningful title to my posts. I end up spending more time thinking about an apt title for my post than in composing a post.

Has it ever happened to you guys ?

Currently Listening To...

"Tu Hi Meri Shab Hai" from the movie "Gangster". I just love this song. Must have listened to it for more that 25 times in the past week.
