One day excursion to Area 83 resort

Usually corporate companies arrange for a team outing every year, even the company I work for arranged a day’s trip to a resort on the outskirts of Bengaluru. It’s named Area 83. 

Area 83 is located in South Bengaluru, on the Bannerghatta road. It’s just an hour’s drive from Koramangala. Road leading to this resort is not in a good condition. However once you are inside the resort you have a totally different experience.Read More »

Kamath lokaruchi, South Indian food paradise

While heading back from Kokkare bellur to Bengaluru, we were searching for nice place to have evening snacks in Mysore Road. And one hotel caught our eyes with plenty of people around, Kamath lokaruchi, a vegetarian restaurant near Ramanagara.

Being on the side of national highway NH-275 there is no shortage of parking space. Once we got inside we were welcomed by the rustic setup and traditionally dressed waiters. Menu had almost all famous South Indian snacks like dosa, idli, obbattu, vada, mirchi bajji etc. This place is quite famous and taste is worth every penny.Read More »
