Fusion Food @ Stuffd | Indiranagar | Bangalore

Do you believe that simple things can be re-done differently & end up giving you a refreshing splash?

If you do, then you belong in our league!

If you’ve read through other posts in our blog, you’ll know that we talk about our responsibility of visiting new places to eat & this is one such instance.

Fusion food is generally something chefs experiment with during “food festivals” but rarely do you find eateries with the courage to focus solely on fusion food.

Unveiling the curtains now: We recently visited a café named Stuffd in Old Airport road, Indiranagar Bangalore which specializes in fusion food.

Stuffd serves a small variety of items at the moment as they’ve recently opened but they’re soon planning to expand their menu. These are the list of items you can gorge on if you visit them: Gol Gappas with fillings, variety of food bowls, Toastizzas & lastly our favorite, the Conpati or chapatti cones with fillings.

For drinks, they serve flavored Lassi & cold beverages ranging from cold coffees to floats.
We visited on a cloudy weekend evening & ended up having a great time! They only have outdoor seating so you can feel the wind in your hair.

So, here’s what we tried:

Alfredo Mac Gol gappas, Cold Coffee, Kiwi Float, Noodle Rasam Bowl, Arrabiata Mac Bowl, Mexican Corn Toastizza & lastly, the Chicken Chapati Cone.

First up, their gol gappas are refreshingly different. They serve the Alfredo Mac filling inside & topped off with a black olive. They serve the sauce separately in a shot glass. So, either you fill it up first or have it separately.

The beverages were both very refreshing. The cold coffee especially was exactly the way it should be: dominant flavor of coffee, chilled & mildly sweet.

The noodle rasam bowl was one of a find. Well done noodles in a bowl of rasam & served with a masala papad. Hard to say, but we actually liked it!

The Arrabiata was lip smacking, but a little bit more tanginess from the tomatoes would’ve done wonders.

The Toastizza was perfect in terms of quantity & there’s not much you can go wrong with. The bread could’ve been crispier for a solid crunch. It had generous amounts of paprika, corn & cheese. All it needed was a bit more crunch & that’d be it!

Lastly, the chicken chapati cone was simply a meaty treat. It had loads of chicken & the balance between sauces & spices was perfect.

Overall, their items are very simple & that’s the trick. We often forget that the simple things can give us the most amount of joy & fool us at the same time.

Stuffd works on a customer centric model & they tweak their menu based on customer preference & feedback. They’re planning on opening other outlets across the city of Bangalore.

Their pricing is reasonable, pocket friendly & definitely VFM.

 We’ll be revisiting them soon & post about our experience to let you guys know about what’s new & happening.

Till then—always try experimenting a bit with your palette/food & bon apetit!

The Sriracha Experience | UB City | Bangalore


It’s been quite some time that we’ve written on the blog & we don’t have a good excuse for it. We haven’t announced it yet, but we’re now in Chennai too! Although, we haven’t had the chance to explore Chennai as much as we’ve done with Bangalore but we’re getting there.
Recently, we’ve been to Sriracha in UB City, Bangalore & the experience is what this post is about.

They have a pretty elaborate menu, the reason being we tried sample portions of most of the items to try as much as we can. 

We tried Salads, Dim Sum, Baos, Sushi and the general starters & main course. We were completely stuffed towards the end so we couldn’t have dessert! Can you guys believe that? We were a bit out of the game but we’re coming back strong for sure ;).

Regarding the ambiance: We enjoyed the open air seating which was a bit uncomfortable as the more the food you ingest, the hotter you feel. The inside had air conditioning with oriental designs.

Coming down to the food:

The items are priced appropriately & the quantity & quality are at par. Now we’ll list down the items we recommend & the ones we didn’t like so much. Our preference is different so it won’t be fair to list as not recommended. 

Must try: Som Tam Green Papaya Salad, Honey Hunan Roasted Pork Bao, Steamed Prawns Spinach Roll & Aromatic Spicy Chicken Dumplings, Grilled Lemongrass Chilli Fish, Coffee Rubbed Pork Riblets, Pandan Leaf-wrapped Cottage Cheese, Stir-fry Tenderloin in Sesame Hot Garlic.

These are the stars & we definitely recommend them. We tried a couple of cocktails to quench our thirst: Cancun tea (a highly intoxicating mix of alcohol) & 2 alcohol based cocktails: one with Black Dog & the other with JW Black Label.

The Som Tam salad was fresh, citrus-y, sweet & sour & had a good crunch to it. The Pork Bao was a classic. Everything was spot on. The Prawns Spinach roll was remarkable. The simplicity & natural flavors excited us the most. The black bean sauce complemented the rolls. The Aromatic Chicken Dumplings were very different in taste with a hint of lemongrass. The chicken was cooked before steaming & was mildly spicy. The Lemongrass fish was aromatic & juicy. The Riblets were spectacular. Good amount of meat and can be handled single-handedly ;). The tenderloin prep was spicy & full of meaty goodness. The Cottage Cheese prep was mind blowing. It melted in the mouth & the taste was unparalleled. 

We tried 2 Sushi variants: Cucumber & Cream Cheese & Prawn Tempura. Both were decent but we’d suggest tampering with the combination inside the Sushi. The balance was flavors need to be improved. 

We felt a couple of dishes can be made lip smacking: Wild Mushroom Purple Dumplings, Rock Corn, Togarashi Dusted Sriracha Prawns. 

The first has a fascinating color but the taste doesn’t complement the first impression. The Rock Corn needs more effort. We found it to be too plain. The third is a Sriracha signature but we have to be honest: The preparation can be made much, much better! The coating of the prawns need more zing. 

That’s all from our side!

Overall, we had a super Saturday lunch. 

Nowadays, most restaurants tend to overcharge for items but certainly not in this case. The items provide VFM & we’ll definitely try re-visiting. A special mention to their Khow Suey which is mouth-watering, crunchy & aromatic.

Do check it out & let us know what you guys feel.

We’ll be back soon with tasty news ;)

Till then—Enjoy life & bon apetit!

Kadu | Our new additon on the wine list

As you might not know, Priyanjana is a bit of a wine lover {read: wine addict } and we love trying out wines from different brands, both Indian and International. 

And if the wine is coming out of the state where we stay, then how can we pass that down,So we recently tried out all of the wines they have to offer and we were not dissapointed.I will let you read about them and then tell you which is my favorite from what they have to offer.

KĀDU (pronounced Kaa-du) is the first premium wine offering from the Karnataka vineyards of Sula Vineyards, India’s leading wine producer.

Kādu, meaning “wild” in Kannada, is India’s first “Wine for a Cause”. The beautiful label, handiwork of renowned label designer Simon Frouws, depicts a tiger in all its glory in the wild jungle.

Karnataka is home to the most wild tigers on the planet in its many reserves. But the majestic beast - India’s national animal - is endangered, with its habitat under threat.
Sula has decided to take up the cause of the magnificent tiger with Kādu, India’s first “wine for a cause”. With each bottle of Kādu sold, Sula will contribute to tiger conservation within Karnataka. To ensure the optimum end-use of the funds contributed, Sula is collaborating with Mud on Boots, the pioneering initiative by the Sanctuary foundation.

Bittu Sahgal, legendary conservationist, founder of Sanctuary and Sula founder, CEO Rajeev Samant launched Kādu in Bengaluru on 6th November 2017.
Kādu is Sula’s homage to Karnataka as one of India’s most important wine regions. Kādu is the fruit of Sula’s efforts to bring the best from Karnataka’s terroir to your glass.
Four delicious Kādu wines will be available initially:

Ø  Kādu Chenin Blanc – is delicious, slightly sweet, floral and fruity
Ø  Kādu Sauvignon Blanc – has delicate aromas and flavours of passion fruit, cut grass and green peppers
Ø  Kādu Shiraz Rose – is light, fruity and full of luscious berry flavours
Ø  Kādu Cabernet Shiraz – is lush, medium bodied and peppery with subtle oak
Winemaker Gorakh Gaikwad has crafted Kādu from the choicest premium Karnataka wine grapes to produce this wonderful “Wine for a cause”!

Come help Save the tiger, one sip at a time!

So, time to let you know my choice,  The Shiraz Rose is what we loved the most. Rose is a very misjudged wine, but I really like the crisp and the deep notes it hits, at the same time! And the rose from Kadu definitely didn't disappoint! 

I would urge you to try these wines out and see for yourself!

Dhyaana Health Cafe

I have been keeping a close watch on what food I am consuming these days. Not because I am trying to achieve something, but eating a lot of heavy food has taken up a toll and I sort of want to cleanse my body.
And healthy food, consciously made with the ingredients kept under close watch, is what I am gravitating towards. And at the perfect time Dhyaana Health Café, located in Indiranagar, Invited me over to try their offerings.

Dhyaana health café is designed in such a way that you would get a beautiful positive vibe from the place. Plenty of natural light, calming and cozy interior is what makes this place perfect to relax and eat. 

They are not only a café, but they are a holistic center where they host yoga classes and mindfulness workshops. But in this post I’ll tell you about the food I had there! 

Let’s start with the drinks. I had a wheat-grass shot, called “Oh she glows” and honestly, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be! Because the last time I had wheatgrass, I immediately regretted that decision! 
masala tea


"Oh she glows"

The smoothie that I had is called Nirvana. And honestly, one of the best guilt free drinks I have had. The almond and the coconut water together make it a wonderful drink!  The masala chai is also quite good here. Love the fact that they serve the sugar separately. 

They also have dosa here, served with a light coconut and tomato chutney.  I had the mixed millet dosa. Apart from being quite flavorful, it was filling, which I had not expected. Also had some momos, I actually tried all the variants they have to offer and I loved the spinach momos. They are wrapper is made of whole wheat, if you were wondering. These are served with a spicy and garlic-y tomato chutney, which by itself it a treat! 

The khichdi bowl that I had was a hearty meal, with very subtle flavors. But again it was quite filling without any compromise on the taste, which I had not expected and was happy to be surprised! 

Mixed Millet dosa

Lastly, I had a delish dessert, called malabi. It takes a bit like Phirni, but healthier version of it. The powdered rice makes this mildly sweet dessert a treat along with dry fruits and some pomegranate seeds! 

I would highly recommend that you visit this place. You can call it hip, on trend or necessary, but healthy food like this would always be a delight! 

Bon appetite!
