Desi Coke

with 2 comments

Coke may not reveal their formula, but so won’t we … of the Masala Coke that is. First, tandoori chicken pizza with raw onions and green chillies from Pizza Hut, and now coke with chaat masala added to it. Both marked improvements on the original products.

Daily Bread

leave a comment »

Found a bakery called Daily Bread on Church Street. It makes a bread flavored with curry leaf, cumin, and turmeric, called rather cheekily the Dakshin Housewife’s Loaf.

Got a whole wheat loaf from them, which I shall try for breakfast tomorrow. They also had the cutest little tart (of the food category) about the size of a one rupee coin. It was competent and bears further investigation. Tempting cakes and gelatos on display too. But I overcame my temptation and decided to be happy with the tart. I think I need some more happiness.

Cakes or Payasams

Cakes? Where is the Payasam

Institute of Baking and Cake Art in B’lore. Maybe explains all those croissants and tarts, rather than payasams and mysore paks, in the fancy new malls.

Ugly Bangalore Palace

Bangalore palace

Ugly because the ex-maharajas need 200 rupees of your money before they allow you to take photos of the exterior of the palace. And those little pretend battlements look pretty stupid too.
