sOthu katchi Update

Casa Piccola located at Kader Nawaz Khan road is really impressive. Ambience, location, pricing and food - judged on any of these parameters it does very well. I've got to mention its relatively inexpensive, especially considering the fact that its a famous restaurant based in Bangalore. If you don't mind Italian/Mexican cuisine, its a good bet, even if you are a vegetarian. Also, the alcohol license is on the way :)

The irony is that when overhyped South Indian restaurants are becoming costlier with the quantity/price ratio not improving, restaurant with different cuisines like Eatalica (near Loyola College) and Casa Piccola are welcome havens. Its best to have South Indian food at home or in unpretentious little restaurants, messes and vandi kadais rather than go to Saravana Bhavan's and Murugan Idly Kadai's.

  • You should try murugan idly kadai before you comment about the place :)...they definitely live upto the standards, tastewise and pricewise

  • small kosteen plees...do the handcart vendors(and restaurant cooks) have access to toilets and do they wash their hands after that?

    Best is to invest a couple of years mastering some 20-25 different snacks :)

  • I have not had anything at the other places you have mentioned Bala...Saravana Bhavan owners do not seem to be satisfied with anything less than 300% profit....
    The cost is atrocious to put it mildly....I was once a great fan of HSB but avoid it mostly these days.

  • Hi All,

    For all you folks in the US, here is a new option for
    getting the cheapest fares to fly back to India for
    your visits.Its a new technology online fare
    consolidator called Cfares -

    http://cfares.regalix.com/cfares/cfares/index.jsp?channel=blpo6&adgroup=soonapaana.blogspot

    I signed up for their platinum membership, and it’s an awesome deal!!! I traveled from NYC to New Delhi.. and compared to my regular travel agent, I saved $584!! Compare that to my old rate of $1,394.. I paid just over $800 for my ticket!!
    Ask everyone to register using this URL… the platinum membership is paid, but for what you save..trust me..you’ll want to sign up..

    Enjoi!!
