Nine hours to Heathrow and nine more hours to Bangalore was quite a commute to work. That’s what I had to do for my trip to the Bangalore office. I should add another hour for the drive to the hotel to wash up and the ride to the office. Oh man was I in for some dire need of caffeine. Thankfully, the office delivered. Strong rich coffee that you needed to balance out with some steamed milk. It wasn’t the staple Indian filtered milk, but it did the trick. As for the filter coffee stuff. I had it on another occasion and it was pretty hard to describe. Smoother? Richer? And that the texture. The taste was quite unique too. Something, I’m sure would be difficult to match back in the states. In any case, this trip to India was a business trip. Seems like all my trips to this country was for business. That usually equals little time to explore.
At least I can give you some food discoveries.

Verdict: Sure, I’ll come back. And definitely pacing myself.
Enter Barbeque Nation. A restaurant that was a cross between a Brazilian churrascaria, a TGIF Fridays, and your typical buffet. Why? Well, the appetizers, which include an endless assortment of skewered meats, grilled chicken, and chunks of paneer. They are constantly brought to your table until, well, when you drop the flag on your table. And if you’re lucky, like we were, you get to witness a song and dance by the wait staff for any lucky birthday individual. Oh, and not only that, for no reason they broke out in dance, Gangman Style. Wow. Somehow I felt a little uncomfortable. But hell, I had grilled meats and my turn to fill my plate full of Indian food goodness. With all that said, I would have to say, I’m not a fan of this place.
