Brekkie

Brekkie

If you’re looking for format here, then you won’t find it because Brekkie is all about swapping things around. So idlis tossed in chutney and lime, cheesy croissants and cookies make it to their hotlist. Poha, chila and sandwiches throw in the health aspect but what we love is the fact that you can order breakfast from Monday to Friday for a sum of merely INR 400 and for a month {20 days} for INR 1,500. And for those looking to pick up some breakfast on-the-go, you can place your order the day before and pick up your parcel from Brekkie’s cute little carts at two locations in the morning {100 Feet Road and 12th Main} in Indiranagar.

Price: INR 80-100 daily {approx.}

Dropkaffe

dropkaffe

Relaunching itself with cold coffees {made using the cold brew technique} and milkshakes, Dropkaffe’s selection of classic and flavoured beverages are just what you need to cool down. Available in pairs and combos, their Coffiato Classic and Coffiato Hazelnut are what you must try. Read more about their cold coffees here.

Price: INR 80 upwards

Chefkraft

Chefkraft

Skip the pricey mains here {though they do serve two-three people} in favour of their full-meal salads which range from the simple Greek or Teriyaki dressed ones to the more exotic Udon Noodle Soup which loads you up with Bulgarian mushrooms, garlic and noodles. If you’re feeling moreish then the ‘Minis’ {think chicken wings, paper rolls, tacos and skeweres} should do the trick. Those not counting calories must try the Chefkraft Fried Chicken with wasabi ketchup and potato wedges. The only hitch: you need to order in by 9am to be able to get lunch by 1pm. And did we mention that LBB loves ordering from Chefkraft. Read our review here.

Bringing the warriors of the kitchens under one roof, this app delivers grub straight from the heart and hearth to you.

If you fancy minestrone soup, or butter chicken with makhani paratha or perhaps some Szechuan fried rice with garlic chicken, then they’re on it. Packed in microwaveable boxes, they’re eco-friendly and make it easy to eat at a desk. Kerala cuisine tops the favourite here.

Red Cooker blends gourmet dishes with comfort home food.

Oriental favourite such as Thai curry, Singapore Chicken and Vegetable Manchurian also make an appearance.

Baba Fattoosh

Needless to say, Pindi Chole, Aloo Bhujiya, Bhindi Masala and Paneer Kasturi make their way to the list, courtesy a centralised kitchen. All accompanied by fluffy phulkas and steaming rice, of course. If you pre-order lunch before 11am and dinner before 6.30pm, then you get a 10 per cent discount.
