Events and other fun things to do in Bangalore are scarce.
There is always the option of going out to catch a bite or the winner option of a "house party" but much else is not a regular option for Bangalore.
So after dissecting all the online forums and Time-Out Bangalore in an attempt to land myself onto an interesting Friday "welcome the weekend" celebration, the only thing R & i did find was a play.
So we reached the venue only to realize it was a kid's event and most of the audience was a parent to one of the performers.we quickly found our way out & drove half way across the city.
All the while brainstorming and throwing our options in the air.
After juggling around a bit with the possibilities, we grudgingly settled on Ice &Spice.
The place is on St.marks road nestled between a Kebab place & A wine shop.Both the kebab place & the wine shop are so bursting with the florescent light of a million tube lights that the yellow lit ice & spice with a small as small can be cafe set up is charming.the black interiors and the Quiet graphics of the board is comforting.
The desserts are marvelous and we sampled some on R's birthday when we dug into a delish cake coated with an almost burnt brown shade of chocolate.
We stepped in only to savour some cool AC atmosphere but we didn't realize that the cacophony of the 15 yr olds out with their monthly pocket money were bringing down the roof with their decibel levels.I now know that saying "My ex" is mandatory every 4 sentences & that a certain Aman likes his women to dominate him"(or something like that! )
I ordered a pasta Arrabiata.It was tangy & creamy.Served in a wide white dish with 2 slices of garlic bread. I am very delighted when i see the waiters walk up to me with geneous portions and it certain makes me feels like i'm in a hospitable place....but the warm sticky summer feeling, the noise & the heavy pasta was just the mix of things to make me feel like running out of the place.
R ordered a chicken gravy with some rice.The gravy again was thick & creamy and very white.
High on fat..low on flavour!
However, the place is perfect for a quick bite and the portions are abundant & the staff friendly.
The prices very pleasing and the place is alright.If you can brave through the teeny-bopper crowd, you have yourself a nice time!
