New in town

Munchies de­light An off­shoot of Anand Sweets, Cheeni Kum of­fers a va­ri­ety of fried, roasted, baked and sug­ary In­dian snacks. From Sand­wich Bhakar­wadi to Palak Chakli, sticky Ja­mun Chips, and Peanut Chikli, it sources au­then­tic munchies from across the coun­try. We loved the diet sec­tion in par­tic­u­lar, which of­fers over 50 dif­fer­ent prod­ucts such as whole-wheat Car­damom Nan Khatai Cook­ies and Baked Ka­chori. It also stocks var­i­ous masalas, chut­neys and dips. Do try the preser­va­tive-free hum­mus, which is vel­vety smooth with a strong aroma of roasted gar­lic and lemon. At Ground Floor, An­janeya Com­plex, No, 147, Kodi­halli, Old Air­port Road

In­side the food man­sion

A wide open space, small ponds and a false ceil­ing of auburn au­tumn leaves makes Smoke House Deli’s new sis­ter joint, Glasshouse, a treat for those look­ing to un­wind over good food and quiet com­pany. Glasshouse is sur­pris­ingly much more rea­son­ably priced than its coun­ter­part. We de­cided to try the veg­e­tar­ian se­lec­tion first and set­tled for Baked Camem­bert and the Farm­house Pizza. While we waited for our food, the bowl with a gold­fish on our ta­ble kept us com­pany. The Baked Camem­bert, with a gar­lic en­crusted top and shards of home­made bread was ab­so­lutely de­li­cious. The pizza was loaded with heaps of mar­i­nated mush­rooms, ri­cotta cheese and baked pumpkin. The non-veg­e­tar­ian fare in­cluded Crumb Fried Chicken with a blue cheese dip, thinly sliced Beef Carpac­cio and a rich Lamb Stew. How­ever, as sat­is­fy­ing as the food was, the dessert left us dis­ap­pointed. The Choco­late Espresso Mousse was too gelati­nous and the Bour­bon Ice Cream tasted much like the reg­u­lar vanilla ice cream. But when it comes to the price and the am­bi­ence one can rarely go wrong with a trip to the Glasshouse. Meal for two Rs 1,700 plus taxes At 25/2, Lavelle Road
