From Burgers To Noodles, Here's Where To Eat (And Drink) In Electronic City
The Hungry Shark Cafe
A pretty and quaint rooftop cafe, order everything from breakfast to pasta and quesadillas here. Oatmeal pancakes or Egg chicken frittata for those lazy Sunday breakfasts while Butter Paneer or Chicken Coleslaw Quesadillas for those 4 pm hunger busters, and pastas, burgers, and Thai curries for those quick lunch scenes. Desserts in a jar should sort out your sweet tooth cravings while Oreo Frappe or Aam Panna Mojito should pair well with your mains.
The Rasoiya Street
If you are looking to eat some good vegetarian grub, head here. In fact, they have Jain options too! Be it with work colleagues or the fam, the restaurant North Indian, Continental and Chinese fare. Their Baked Canneloni and Achari Mushroom come highly recommended. Do try their soup section and if you are feeling like mixing things up, order a round of nachos to go with your Zafrani Broccoli. Or probably order Schezwan rice with pav bhaji. Yup, it’s almost the world on a plate!
A through and through bar, Gilly’s is where you need to head to post work or for weekend scenes. With contemporary music blasting from the speakers to an always packed crowd on weekend nights, the bar offers you all the ingredients required to make it a night to remember. Or not depending on how many drinks you have ordered. LIITs, Cosmos, Sangria, and signature drinks such as Eye of the Tiger, should keep you all high and happy. Pair that with Onion Rings, Chunky Cheesy Potato Wedges, and BBQ Chicken Nuggets to nibble on. But more mains, there are plenty of meaty options such as Bhatti Da Murg or Coorg Pandhi Roast that also go well with your beer or cocktail. Order a round of pizzas and burgers if you are coming in a big group.
If you are looking to escape the crowd at Gilly’s and looking to unwind with whiskey, pick Z-Bar. The rooftop space is perfect for date nights or when you want to enjoy that Bangalore breeze. EDM and Bollywood nights are a thing here and while it brings in the crowd, you won’t feel suffocated while you are on the dance floor. Grab a chair by the bar counter if you want to just sit and enjoy a game on the telly. Else you could head straight to the gazebo with your squad and catch up over drinks and plenty of finger foods.
Republic Of Noodles
Craving Asian? Head straight to Republic Of Noodles located inside Lemon Tree Hotel. Singaporean, Chinese, Thai, and Malaysian cuisines are on offer with plenty of grills and noodles. Thai-style Grilled Chicken, Wok Flashed Prawns in Garlic Pepper, and Indonesian Beef Satay should keep the meat eaters happy. Vegetarians pick from Grilled Mushrooms, Steamed Tofu, and Chilli Apricot-Glazed Babycorn. Do check out the wok stir fried section as well. The menu keeps all the winners when it comes to curries, noodles, and rice with Burmese Chicken Curry and Vietnamese Beef Curry all getting a spicy makeover. Singapore Rice Noodles, any day!
