Amal Tamara – Wellness Cuisine

‘Care for a glass of Burgundy ma’am?’

‘No thanks, I will just have a Beetroot juice please’

The USP of Amal Tamara’s cuisine is to make ‘invalid food’ seem very very ‘valid’ indeed 😀

The purely vegetarian ayurvedic menu incorporates ingredients which adhere to the principles of ayurveda, resulting in food that is easy to digest and assimilate and aid the healing process.

So let sit down at our table in the restaurant called Oottupura and let us sample what they call Cure cuisine, while we experience the level of pampering that goes into making every guest feel special even with healthy and simple fare which is not rich in fats and spices.

080 Lounge – Domestic Terminal, Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru

080 … No this is not the enhanced and anagrammed version of the next James Bond movie but is the name of the swanky new lounge in the domestic terminal T1 of the Kempegowda International Airport. The lounge marks its identity by taking on Bangalore’s Subscriber Trunk Dialling (STD) Code 080, thus also affirming its allegiance and bond (no pun intended 🕶️) to the city whose threshold it is located at.

The lounge is now nearly 8 months in operation but I use the term New because I finally had the fortune of venturing out of the city after a miserable 2.5 years which were ridden with Covid and other unpleasant medical happenings and hence this was my first sight of the airport’s upgraded features.

And this was also the first time I was happy to hear that my flight was delayed by an hour because I got really comfortable here and the extra waiting was a pleasure 😃

So glide into this stylish place and check out what amenities it promises to offer those who seek its comforts before taking off into the air.
