A candid hangout in Hangout cafe, Koramangala

You know what’s great about working in a startup ?

Changing lives everyday.

But and there is always a but. But it comes with a lot of work and a lot of stress.

Every time I have a lot of work on my plate(everyday) and I need to get a lot sorted in my mind, I take the road that ends at Hangout cafe, sit outside, enjoy the weather and work.

A lot of times you see people inside appreciating the app that you are a part of (Momoe yay) and it feels like a little bit of heaven. Honestly it feels a lot like heaven, if I could explain the feeling to you it would be like eating a white chocolate ganache sandwiched between flowerless chocolate cake or as they call it in Hangout cafe Molten multi layer.

It’s one of the many things I come here for. The ambience is amazing, very soothing and I often speak to the chef there whose a great pal. He gives me great feedback always and I am obliged that I get to meet passionate people thanks to my job.

It’s like Jinu wakes up everyday with a mission to make a bright day out of someone’s gloomy day. The food he serves is served with love and a lot of thought behind it.

One day I asked him why does he keep changing his menu often even though his outlet never sees any lazy evening.

” Jinu, you change your food menu like Britney changes her husband even though I see majority people loving and appreciating the food.Why do you do it ? ”

To this my man Jinu says :

” I don’t tweak dishes, add or substract food menu without taking diligent feedback from my customers. I believe the only way this cafe can be the best cafe in bangalore if I serve people exactly what there taste buds crave and for that to happen I need them to really surrender to food when they come here. All of them. ”

Lovely guy, full of energy complete opposite to the calm and serene ambience his cafe portrays.I appreciate that he has balanced his passion well with his patience.

You sit here for an hour and you feel like you have been healed. The music is melodic, the walls are white, the lights are amazing and the food is délicieux.

It’s not a miss or not sort of a judgement to come to Hangout, I never come here with any motive and I find my most productive and chilled out hours here.

The place has a positive vibe and you just hangout with the folks you are with.Simple.

I see hangout as a very promising place since any place/person ready to change or ready to make more room for happiness will always end up being happy, so I have learned.

So visit this happy place, hangout with your friends and remember to pay with Momoe.

Here’s a candid picture we shared when I was last there #justgoingwiththeflow

Celebrate a little bit of Goa in Bengaluru with Maria’s Goan Kitchen

Goa with Momoe

That Goa Feeling…

“Dil Chahta Hai” laid the foundation of summer holidays in Goa for my generation. We were watching Saif Ali khan hit it off with a foreigner and his friends having the time of their life in Goa, and all of us wanted to do it 🙂

I have been to Goa thrice and it has been amazing – the hangover of Goa literally aches for months! And if you (unfortunately) moved from Goa to Bangalore irrespective of the reasons, then you must be really missing Goa a lot. Bengaluru has its own flavours but nothing can compare to a lobster on the beach or a fish curry with rice.

“I miss the prawns the most!”, says my friend who was alongside me last year on our escapade. We recollect good food, cheap liquor and amazing scooty rides on Baga beach.

“Those memories were amazing and if only we could catch a little bit of it here…”, we surmised, both at once.

I recently got introduced to a place called Maria’s Goan Kitchen through the Momoe app while I was crossing Ejipura road. I called them up and the owner Valy picked up, and he told me about the little space they operate in.

I wanted to surprise my friend, so I ordered the Fish curry alongside rice and a starter for myself and my friend. They delivered to Indranagar and since I am always out of cash, I paid the bill through Momoe. We relished the food, the portions were excellent and the food felt fresh and made with exquisite skill. It was a great surprise for him, we loved the food and after we finished, I got a call from the owner Valy asking us how the food was and I told him ” My stomach loves you!”

Since then I have been celebrating Thai and Goan food ordering from all across Bangalore, when you have the advantage to order food from anywhere in Bangalore you feel blessed to have made discoveries through the Momoe app.

If you are feeling a little adventurous and want to experience taste buds very different from your usual meal, I suggest you try Maria’s Goan Kitchen. They deliver food to anywhere in Bangalore, the delivery is free and if you order above 500 which I always do you get something free, thanks to the kind owner.

I hope this article finds all the curious folks who are in search of a new menu, a new experience, a new taste. My friends, I speak for all of us, give it a try and you will realise you have been missing out on something awesome.

Just save 88922-83138 as “stomach love” on your phone and you shall thank me.

Until our next adventure, Adios.

May the food be with you ~ Hungry Yoda.

Think about all those people who played a crucial role in your life this year. Someone who was there with you through thick and thin. Someone who is upset with you now. Those best buddies who shared with you all your joys and sorrows. And your loved ones whom you couldn’t treat well.
