Food and Other stories..!!!! :) Sufi and Frio Bangalore

If you dint know I was on Twitter, you really need to pay attention to the corner of my blog as well.. because on the right  left hand top corner, there is a button which says FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER.. and its because am on twitter.. TWEETING...!!!!!

so If you haven't followed me yet.. do it..!!!

Hey there.. well here I am, just as promised, with my today's photo blog post and today's theme is FOOD..!!!!!!! 
It actually dedicated to all the foodies who have ever visited my blog so far..
Initially these were clicked as a part of RED's request  challenge for food and lifestyle but then since it doesn't have any people (which was also in the challenge and I totally forgot.). am posting it under the theme.. 


Also I thought in order to make this post a bit special I shall write about the pics as well..!!!
so here we go..

My dear fellow foodies..
"Roti tum sarkaar se maango.. kapada hum le aaye hain" 
It was this famous line that Dilip kumar sang in one of his films inspired me to click these pictures. (but since I was in real hurry to eat because the aroma was DAMN tempting, the pictures have not come out good. hope you dont mind.)

Since the government is pretty busy dealing with the scams to actually give me the roti that Mr. Dilip Kumar had referred me to, I decided to find some food on my own and in my this eternal quest to find food when I was supremely hungry in Bangalore, I stumbled upon few places that were secretly hidden from the rest of the man kind. I hereby am unraveling those secrets for you...

It was midnight, and I was drunk..heard that party can go wild at times but with me and my friends it always did..!!! I  was hungry and wanted to eat something. Most of the stores  Everything was closed and Nobody was ready to take us in.
It was then, I stumbled upon(my friend knew ) a 24X7 Coffee shop called the Frio..!!!

ladies and gentlemen, if you really start a craving for coffee  in the middle of the night in Bangalore.. dont forget the name..

The Hot dog and sandwich were really filling..!!

The coffee was excellent.. plus the person who was serving us was fun.. he knew my friend and hence we had a gala time sitting late.!!

The next day We were really craving for some good Non veg food and the choices were simple..
 The only place- best steak in town
Casa Picola- European cuisine (wanted to try that one )
but the winner was 

An Iranian Restaurant with some amazing food. seriously speaking I shouldn't be writing about it because it would never make up for the experience but since I couldn't click some decent pictures let me make up for it.

Sufi is not a place where you take your girl friend or trying to impress a girl on date.
because though the ambiance is BEAUTIFULLLL... the food is so damn good that you cant stop hogging it.

The Kebabs, both Mutton and chicken were prepared with only one idea in mind, to get you addicted to the food. 

The drink in the glass (clear in the next pic ) is called Doogh.
A Persian drink similar to Indian Buttermilk but with soda and herbs.. Its KICK ASS..!!!

(Ya, I know its still not that clear but "kindly adjust kario"... were clicked in real hurry. had food in one hand and camera in other. )

And never ever try and underestimate their proportions. The delicious food is served in MAMMOTH servings thus making it a real value for money. 

The biryani both chicken and mutton were so tempting that my mouth is still watering recollecting those. garnished with cashews and some really exotic herbs, it was one YUMMY dish. and the best part is if you cant finish it all (which am sure most cant ) you can shamelessly ask them to pack it up for you (like my friend did) and they will do that with a smile :)

Many may find the place a bit expensive but hey think about this..
a beautiful weekend, amazing ambiance and some really good mouth watering cuisine. I think its worth every penny. and who knows you may stumble upon Lucky Ali or A.R Rehaman as well. (Heard its one of their favorite restaurants in town. ) 

Drop your comments and about your favorite resturant in town that according to you I should not miss when visiting your town :)

Till then 

*burp..* Sorry.. :)

P.S : you should also try the hookahs if you visit there.. its really good :P

P.P.S: going home for a few days.. that means I wont be blogging.. wont be able to comment but I'll be reading all your posts.. so keep posting.. if miss me.. follow me(twitter) and tweet to me.. and I shall tweet back. :)
