The Tuck Shop

My hunt for good food at new places is always on. Then there are places which are so familiar and comfortable that I just I just get up and head out there. So, on this lazy Sunday I ended up at Tuck Shop, a cute little place in Koramangala with menu which will satisfies my breakfast craving like no other.  Interesting graffiti and paintings make this place even warmer.

Four Seasons Gourmet Indulgence- Good Food and Fine Wine

Four Seasons Wines is one of the most satisfying yet classy wines that I have had the pleasure of having. The colour, the taste and the essence of this drink is what has made me an ardent follower of this beautifully crafted drink. Last weekend Four Seasons launched the curtain raiser for the event ‘Four Season Gourmet Indulgence’ and I was lucky enough to be a part of it. The event took place at the Tower Kitchen, UB City, a beautiful place in the heart of the city.

The event consisted of pairing some of the finest Gourmet with Four Seasons Wines for a three course dinner. The food was carefully prepared for this occasion by the chefs of the partnered outlets; it was a truly mesmerizing gourmet experience. It was quite a treat for the food connoisseurs and at the same time, a challenge for the chefs to prepare their meals in accordance with the wines and they did not disappoint. The way the food blended with the wine was truly mesmerizing.

Sunday Brunch

Sigh! Good food! Its a rush when you order something new from the menu and then wonder, how good will it be, if at all, it’ll be worth the excitement.

I keep contemplating the amalgamation of the recipe as mentioned in the description section of the menu. Imaging in the back of my mind, the probable outcome how ingredients combine to deliver a sweet, salty, dreamy or heavenly treat to my taste buds. My brain just won’t stop!

Food!

Then, there are those places which never disappoint!. I am a fan this place called ‘Truffles (Ice & Spice)’ in Kormangala, Bangalore. Bangalore residents would recognize this place as everyone who’s once been here would assert on the same.

I have tried almost everything from the menu and I love them all. My personal favorites are Ceasar Salad, Spicy Chicken wings and of coarse the Ferrero Rocher Cold Coffee.

I was lucky to get a table there last Sunday afternoon, as it’s flooded over the weekends. As a result the service is pretty lame during crunch hours. Also, if you want to catch up with friends, it is advisable not to come over during the weekend. The noise and the hustle-bustle might ruin up a good meal/meet.

I ordered, the Grilled Chicken in Mint and Rosemary Sauce and its was really good. The taste of Rosemary dominated the plate but I liked that! On the side, mashed potatoes, steamed rice, bread and steamed vegetable complimented the chicken. It was filling. A 10/10 from my side to Ice & Spice for the food and maybe a 10/10 for ambiance and service on weekdays when it’s moderately empty.

Make sure you give it a try and the next time you’re there. There’s another Ice & Spice at the MG Road, here.
