From the first of a cafe chain that puts the spotlight on healthy eating to a quick service bao shop, or a Polynesian-themed tiki bar to a bar that is slightly tipsy in theme as well as menu, the city’s newest restaurants {some just-launched and some coming soon} promise enough F&B action. Watch out for detailed reviews soon.

Sotally Tober

The decor here is slightly tipsy what with chairs perched on walls, paint splattered tables, and teapots moonlighting as sources of light. The cocktail menu reads like a mishmash of influences such as Sour Chai {whiskey, black tea, sweet and sour}, Tober Chocolate Fudge {tequila, chocolate, Triple Sec and ice cream} or Tiffanies {whiskey, orange marmalade, cardamom and honey}. from their bites , look out for the alcohol-infused ones that are sure to elicit a chic or two from you. Soto Corn on the Cob {corn tossed with an in-housespice mix and drizzled with vodka} or Soto Chicken Sausage {spicy chicken sausage and potatoes in a brandy sauce}.

Where: 769, 80 Feet Road, Koramangala, 4th Block

We have no information about Kylie except that it is going to be a quick service format bao shop that is opening right next to the LBB workplace. We have been walking up and down in front of Kylie’s {only the hoarding up right now} imagining what kind of baos they will offer. We are hoping for a juicy sweet and roasted Char Sui version for sure. Watch this space for more.

Where: opposite Hotel High Gates, Church Street
