Feel the heat from the Savji Cuisine – Kollapuris

Went to the Kollapuris Jayanagar branch with my family. I have always been a fan of savji cuisine right from my engg days Huballi.

don’t be afraid of the dark beauty exists there too  Taken during a rehearsal, I loved the way the silhouettes showed against the light. It was my moment of satori.

I usually have beer and mutton pepper fry which is pretty good. Their pulimunchi (seafood and chicken) is sensational…… My fav combination is neer dosa,…

Closer home we have these dancers in stilts and horse costumes  who also provide the necessary color to a a…

Travel & Experiences
