Seriously, I just can't seem to get enough of this place, and any and every time I'm in the vicinity and it's time to eat (when isn't it?), I meander towards this place like a gondola heading downstream with the current. I started off with a fresh lime soda and decided to try out a pasta dish this time, since the owner, Yogesh, had suggested it when I visited the place the first time with Mr P and Mr VP.

So a penne Alfredo with cilantro pesto and eggs it was. This order is also served minus the eggs for those inclined to stick to flora at all times.

The pasta was indeed as good as any pasta I've had anywhere (save for my own cooking, which would beat even the pasta at Fiorana hands down any day ). The quantity was sufficient, the pesto wasn't too oily; in short, just perfect. The garlic bread at the side along with the order really complemented the dish and there was nothing that I found lacking at all. And to round things up, the owner, Yogesh, came and sat with me and we had a nice chat about Bangalore, food & beverages, the economy and how it could (would) impact the F&B industry and what not.

I rounded off my lunch with a poor knights of Windsor for dessert, something that I've always had when I've come here (except when I came for breakfast with my brother). And it was just as good as it was when I first had it.

wow this looks yum. Someone recently told me about The Egg Factory but I've not managed to make it there as yet. This will definitely provide some extra motivation! :)

I had some yum pasta recently at Bangalore Bistro, as well as some delicious mediterranean food you should check out if you haven't already!

I have been to Bangalore Bistro; it's there among the initial few posts of this blog, and yes, the food there is amazing!

This place is brilliant. I am surprised that it is empty as it is. Evenings on a Friday/Saturday, all three times that I've been there, there was no one else to be seen, except one couple once.
The food is great, reasonably priced. Whats not to like? Why is it always empty?

It's actually a fairly new place, and also it's location is a lil in the interiors, and so is a tad difficult to spot if ur taking the turn onto St Marks from Museum Rd or Lavalle Rd. Also, I guess the few who've been there wanna keep its location limited to a few so that it can remain a resort of sorts to the regulars, much to the consternation of the owner :)

Hi Anant,
Against our wishes and desires we seem to be getting categorised as a morning,afternoon and evening hangout place. Dinner seems to be a little dull except for the last 3 weeks or so. Might be the perception that eggs are not for dinner..would appreciate your coming in the evenings though...will keep us busy atleast:-)
