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.

Purnabramha : Marathi food served with love

Have you ever felt touched after visiting a restaurant, food that not only fills your stomach but also fills your heart with goodness? The good around you will always be celebrated, appreciated and more importantly, remembered.

Purnabramha is a one of a kind dining place in the heart of HSR Layout, Bangalore. The authentic Marathi food is not the only thing that will keep you coming back, but it is the importance given to detailing. The whole experience takes you back to childhood days in a Maharashtrian town, with traditional seating on the floor and water served in a “tambya”. The owner Jayanti is a lady with a fire in her heart.

My first conversation with her at the HSR Layout outlet was “Why should anyone come to Purnabramha?”

Jayanti, who knows exactly what she wants from her staff, ambience and food, answered in simple words:

Because we are a caring restaurant. We care about children and women – especially women who are expecting. Most importantly, we care about the experience of each individual.

There are chairs in the restaurant especially for pregnant ladies. Every child is given a blank canvas to draw his mind. It is such a beautiful way of providing attention to children and blossoming creativity.

I was not only touched by her passion, but also the fact that she has rapidly grown Purnabramha to 4 outlets – 3 in Bangalore and 1 in the USA. This only shows her spirit is ambitious and growing each day.

Then I tried the food… And let me tell you – I have never tasted such authentic Marathi food before. For a man who has been missing home food for a while, Purnabramha felt like the sweet memory of the food I was rewarded with when I came home on weekends from my hostel.

We at Momoe celebrate the spirit of Purnabramha and will help them achieve their dream of celebrating and sharing culture through food at their restaurants.

Jayanti’s dream of making the biggest art gallery created by children in Bangalore will one day be achieved, and we shall help in any way we can – that’s a promise from the entire Momoe team.

If you want a good dining experience with your family, where your children and your stomach will be taken care of well, then you need to look no further than this amazing experience – Purnabramha.

Now you can pay with Momoe at all Purnabramha outlets in Bangalore and redeem offers – just ask the waiter about Momoe (http://social.momoe.in).

Spread some cheer, share some beer!

The New Year stands in front of us, like a chapter in a book waiting to be written. But before we start writing this new chapter, let’s finish 2014 in a good note. 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. So, before we end this beautiful year lets meet up with all these people and treat them with what they deserve.

Friends bring happiness into your life but best friends bring beer and Momoe helps you to do exactly this in style.
