Japanese Pancakes To Nasi Lemak: Play Boardgames As You Load Up At This New Pan-Asian Eatery


    With a Pan-Asian menu, laid-back setup {they’ve got board games!}, and pocket-friendly prices, this Indiranagar cafe could be your next favourite hangout.

    On A Hungry Road

    Remember J’s Cafe on 100 Feet Road? We had to bid it farewell to make room for Hungry Walker, the new kid in town, serving up a Pan-Asian storm. The little cafe is run by a young couple and is set up in a way that makes it easy for you to lose track of time. With board games, books and a nice al fresco space too, this is the perfect spot to catch up with friends or to take a breather from work.

    Just one look at the menu will have you drooling. With options like Japanese Pancakes, Nasi Lemak Sambal Udang, which is a coconut rice dish, served with a spicy prawn sauce, and Kra Pao Gai, which is diced chicken served in a black sauce, and prices all falling under INR 350, we were sold. We went with the Chicken Teriyaki and the Tofu Sambal Udang. Doused in a spicy sauce, these pack quite a punch. A bit too spicy for my liking, but those who enjoy a fiery kick will enjoy this. We also tucked into the Mushrooms with Black Pepper Sauce, served with a portion of steamed rice. Much more tame, this one is probably my top pick for its strong Asian flavours and a hint of spice. You can swap the mushrooms for a prawn gravy too.

    Take A Break

    Not in the mood for a full-fledged meal? They got plenty of quick bites and drinks on offer too. Curl up with a hot cup of tea or coffee {we recommend the Hazelnut Latte}, and a dessert from straight from their in-house bakery {they’ve got cheesecakes and muffins}, or opt for some chocolatey waffles. We went with the latter and ordered the Brownie Waffles, which came to us dripping in chocolate sauce, with a side of ice cream. We also tried their chocolate cake, ideal for those with a strong sweet tooth.

    Wash it all down with a shake or smoothie. They’ll even customise your drink, so be sure to let them know what you’re in the mood for. Sit inside on their simple chairs and tables, or make your way to their small al fresco space and kick back. How’s that for a coffee break?
