As the name states Carnival de Goa wants to provide ambience and food of Goa. Lets see how much they stand on the ambience and food. When it comes to food it definitely has a Goa flavour but I would say it is coastal cuisine comprising Kerala, Mangalorean and Goan food. Ambience is decent with a open area sitting and section inside with AC. The servers serve wearing hawaiian Shirts and hats. Apart from that nothing like Goa. But I must add it is a cozy settings with dim lighting and candles on the table.

I visited there last Saturday with two friends and our main focus was food. We started with seafood platter which comprises 5 types of starters and rice gravy. Namely Indian Basha fish masala, mackerel fish, king fish, squid. Out of them Basha fish masala was outstanding. It was so tasty that we order Basha fish masala again separately. Tried fish kebab ( Indian Basha). Again an awesome item. The last item in starters was pork chilly fry. Umm tasty !!

Two of us went for Kingfisher draught beer 1.5 litres pitcher (Rs 520) which came in with 1 + 1 offer. My other friend had Smirnoff Vodka which also came with a 1 + 1 offer. Finally finished our awesome foodie evening with little rice and king fish gravy. I will visit this place again and it will be for the food.

With Bangalore’s dwindling green cover the wildlife in Bangalore is also receding. But in the heart of the city, our lane is pretty endowed with various wildlife. The lane do not have a single big tree. Though there are balcony gardens. I see a group of pigeons who have made this lane their home. I also see squirrels who have become permanent residents of this lane. The sparrow which has become a rare sight in Bangalore can be seen here pretty often. Crows visits frequently. I think they are also encouraged by the friendly nature of the human residents of the lane. I know of two family including ours who keep water and grains for these cute neighbours. I have seen even cats visiting to have water.

Few dogs also enjoy the benevolence of this lane. I know of people who provides them food everyday. In the process these dogs also became guards of this lane. Evolution process says – To adapt is to thrive. I take heart when I see these cute neighbours adapting to the concrete jungle. Simply saying they are writing their own survival story.
