Alfaham Chicken at Savoury Restaurant Kammanahalli  It isn’t difficult to spot the Savoury restaurant on the Kammanahalli main road (Bangalore east), a landmark in itself. It’s a big property with high-class interiors perfectly suitable for family dining. When you dine here, choose between Arabian, Indian and Chinese cuisine.  Savoury Restaurant in Kammanahalli (Bangalore East) Alfaham BBQ Chicken  My order for the day was the Alfaham BBQ Chicken and the Jumbo Shawarma Roll and I chose to parcel it to home instead of dining-in. It is less safe dining out during the Covid-19 pandemic. Alfaham Chicken BBQ - Savoury Restaurant (Parcel) There are several restaurants in Kammanahalli where you can reach out for mouth-watering dishes. The Savoury is certainly the best among them, they serve quality food at an affordable price. Their menu list runs several pages and I will have to visit the restaurant many times to try it all. There is a lot to try in the vegetarian segment as well. My favorit

Angry Birds Birthday Cake (Amma’s Pastries)

Angry Birds Birthday Cake (Amma’s Pastries) My daughter is a big fan of Angry Birds and we decided to present her an Angry Bird Cake for her 11th Birthday. We ordered it from Amma’s Pastries in HRBR Layout, Bangalore. The cake was delivered to us at no extra cost. The print on the Angry Birds Cake was perfect and I hope the colours are edible.   This design consumed 1.5 Kgs of pastry and the Ammas Pastry charges us Rs. 925 including delivery charges. That’s $12.3 when you convert into USD.

They now give door delivery so there is no need for us to go there and stand in line. I liked their service and full marks for this.  Full marks to Angry Birds Birthday cake too, there was no flaw in the print. The pastry was awesome but th

Hotel Hanumanthu Pulav Mysuru (Mysore) Hotel Hanumanthu is a popular restaurant in Mysore that serves yummy Mutton and Chicken Pulao.  Hanumanthu Pulao Hanumanthu Pulao Mysore is not only a tourist destination but also a destination for food. Unlike Bangalore, the “city of palace” has few restaurants that is worth visiting. The Hotel Hanumanthu is one such restaurant.  It is about a type of “Mutton or Chicken Pulav” that you will not get to eat in any other restaurant. If you are in Mysore and a “non-vegetarian”, head straight to this restaurant. They are open from 7 AM and are closed on Monday’s. Mutton Pulav Mutton Pulav Mutton Pulao sometimes reffered incorreclty as Mutton Biryani The restaurant has put a name board “Hotel Hanumanthu” but they are not a hotel. They serve just food!

Now there are several of them within in the city.  Most of the time people ask for “Hanumanthu Biryani” which is no
