Home Bangalore A tale of tiffins

    A�A range of Indian specials served up in a fun, no fuss atmosphereA� with a twist

    STILL recall scenes from that critically acclaimed Hindi film, The Lunchbox, which seriously made me crave the flavours of homea��cooked Indian food. And for those who feel the same, there is a new dining concept in town that is cool and quirky. At TiffinBox etc. at Inorbit Mall in Whitefield, you can tuck into a choice of hearty regional food from kitchens across India, served up in the ubiquitous tiffinboxes we lusted after in the film.A� With dishes that make you feel at home, TiffinBox etc. takes you straight to the kitchens from where native recipes originate.

    foodlead8dWhata��s cooking
    The menu offers five broad regional choices from different parts of India and, surprisinglyA� enough, Birmingham too. For example, Delhi a�� diwani handi and tandoori Chicken, KolkataA� a�� mustard fish tikka and kosha mongsho, Mumbai a�� sabj kolhapuri and Goan Prawn Curry, Bangalore a�� chicken Chettinad, and Birmingham a�� Birmingham balti.
    The novelty factor of the gleaming tiffins arriving at your table notwithstanding, they open up to revealA� fragrant curries, vegetablesA� and staples that will bring to mind old family recipes and mothera��s old fashioned cooking.

    The portions are generous (meant to be shared) and reasonably priced. The tiffinbox meals can only be ordered at dinner.
    And lunch is a buffet that caters to busy office goers who prefer to dive into a huge spread with easy choices. Here, the range covers Gujarati, Rajasthani, Marwari, Sindhi, Maharastrian, Punjabi, Awadhi and Hyderbadi cuisines (Rs. 350++). Light snacks like idli, pav bhaji, aloo paratha and chaat are also available.

    Their signature desserts are quite interesting and include paan and chilli ice-cream (my favourite), and sugar free gajar ka halwa. Thosefoodlead8c with Jain food preferences are also catered to here.

    Back to school
    A mention must be made of the decor that is rather fun a�� minimalistic yet creative with old school milk cans as lights, happy caricature wall murals and wooden bench-like seating for larger groups.

    Rs. 320 for vegetarian and Rs. 420 forA� non-vegetarian tiffins. Details: 28029599
