Experience at the Pasta Bar Veneto -VR Mall

The newly opened branch, of this already established Italian counterpart in India. What comes more with its next new outlet is an improved ambience and a tenacious atmosphere which cannot hold you back from having some Italian masterpieces. This Italian restaurant takes you directly to the loving and cheesy streets of Italy.

To start off with, the menu was a nice depiction of the Italian classic facts with the names of the dishes also having a majority of its essence of the Italian language. The menu consisted of starters, soups, pizzas, burgers, pastas, grills, beverages and the ever-sweet desserts.

With the wide multi cuisines, and some soups to choose from, we went on with the following dishes:

       i.          Cheese and mushroom Crostini:

These sliced breads topped off with loads of cheese and lowkey cut boiled mushrooms just makes this a perfect treat for the cheese-mushroom lovers. This can definitely be on my must try list, it tastes heavenly with tomato ketchup.

      ii.          Herbs & Cheese Garlic Bread:

Just served similarly like the previous crostini, the only difference is the doubling of cheese and a few seasoning and “herbs” to make it a cheese garlic bread. The perfect yet simple way to start your meal.

    iii.          Zuppa Funghi (soup):

The weirder the name sounds, the absolute better its taste. This tasted more like the sauce of the milk cream cheese pasta and some cut mushrooms made it a perfect combo of an Italian start off. The breads served with it were the softest of its kind and supports each other so damn well.

    iv.          French Fries with Honey Chilli / Cheese:

The all-time favourite French fries just got even more better, the quantity that is provided is worth its price and the two options that is, either honeychilli sauce or with cheese, I went for the honeychilli sauce just to try out something new and it was really one of the best experiences I’ve never had in Chennai.

      v.          Potato Pea and Cheese Crostini:

The softest of the breads with a layer of garlic sauce, cut into rectangular shapes and are topped off with bland mashed potatoes, all time favourite cheese, and whole green peas makes it one of the most desirable dishes. But the taste could be much better with some spices, but its Italian, no spices are added in this cuisine, so the way it is, I didn’t like it very much.

Through the course of these starters, there’s always room for some drinks and beverages along the routes of experiencing some magnificent Italian food, we did have around 8 to 10 options….

I went for some drinks like, Virgin MojitoIced TeaChocolate Shake and Mint Lemonade. These beverages along the route were just so good to add-on and all these drinks were up to the mark and refreshing as well.

Moving on to the main course, Italian cuisines also have a wide variety in main course dishes, but I was already full, the following were the ones that I tried and tested for you guys:

    vi.          Veg. Grilled Barbeque:

This one surprised me the most, I kind of expected a lot on this one, but it kind of disappointed me on a bigger note, because it consisted of just grilled vegetables and a few blocks of toasted parmesan blocks. This is definitely not worth the price and neither it is filling the tummy.

   vii.          Quattro Formaggi (Pasta):

This variant of pasta was one of the best in chennai and I’ve ever had in my life. This one’s for all the cheese-lovers as it is the combination of four varieties of cheeses combined and put up into a penne pasta style, just looks irresistible and the moment when it melts in your mouth. Just gives the chills.

 viii.          Pizza Diavolo:

Without Pizzas there is no Italian cuisine for me, it was a must for me to try out something. The pizza was a perfect blend and probably the only thing that was spicy and fun to have. The toppings included, bell peppers, olives, tomatoes and the all-time important cheese. 

    ix.          Veg. Lasagna Exotica:

The lasagnas, which I am a huge fan of, where would I get anything better from other than at an Italian restaurant.The stuffing included parmesan assorted breads, veggies and a layer of milk cheese to top it and is baked and served which looked so delicious and without thinking I poke into it.

      x.          Veg. Tofu Burger:

One of their Signature dishes, the best of quality tofu patty stuffed right in between cottage cheese and different sauces with leaves of cabbages and huge soft, well chiseled breads and it was served along with few fries and a lot of love.

The main course was about all this.

This amazing journey till now was just going to get better with the widest of options in their desserts section and it was little or no expectations from my side, but the desserts really did blow off my minds, So, are you guys ready for the sweet journey. The desserts that I ordered were as follows:

    xi.          Apple Strudel:

The apple strudel, is just the fairytale ending of any meal, the sweet pie topped up with sliced apples, and a custard mixture, that tastes heavenly when tried together.

   xii.          Panna Cotta:

I have had some panna cottas, In Chennai, and this was the best I’ve had ever. The giggly effect with the right amount of gelatin level, and the sweetness was on point. Dipped in strawberry squash and some strawberries to top off was just a look to be admired for a second.

 xiii.          Chocolate Mousse:

For all the chocolate-lovers in Chennai, Mousse is always that I as a foodie relish on. The presence of cocoa is just blissful and in fact I was drooling over it and was again well served on a platter. The amount of sweetness could have been more and would have been just perfect.

  xiv.          Mud Pie Cake:

This cake was basically an incarnation of dark cocoa powder with addition of gelatin to make it more softer and the taste of it was like something like chocolate, then there were some crushed biscuits giving it a muddy look and overall it was a nice experience.

Paint Party at Klay Centre

I have always wanted a tribe of friends during my mothering years. But those early motherhood days couldn’t find any but recently joined
Chennai Mom Tribe which is run by
Arul Mozhi , Dimple Surana
and Shruti Ravindran
to explore new things and make new friends. I missed their first meet by chance so was very eager not to meet any meet in the future. Their second at fab cafe made me learn yoga, doubts from a gynecologist and some beauty tips.


I love painting and was so much excited about the third event Paint party and it was fabulous. We had lot of fun with colors and really had an amazing painting session with lovely Artish Pragati Gunashekar who bought out the artist in all of us and Klay Play School at anna nagar was our venue.She taught us how to use the brush, mix colors, do strokes and paint..
The session went for three hours and ended up with a amazing painting. Not only me but each and everyone did justice and the painting came out very well.. Here is my painting with acrylic colors.


I was amazed to see how every little thoughts and details went into making this meet a success. It was a full house, and no, am not joking! Made possible thanks to chennai mom tribe and to #KlayPrepSchoolAndDayCare
who took good care and kept little ones engrossed while the ladies enjoyed the painting session.

The curriculum at KLAY is based on inquiry based learning, experiential training and the theory of multiple intelligence. They prepare the little one for the world ahead and create for them an environment packed with new discoveries ,exciting learning experiences and disciplinary learning environment for kids to grow.

They have Child safety and security, CCTV access to connect with parent at any time.. Here each child feels comfortable to explore, discover, challenge and understand their physical worlds without fear.

They have designed in such a amazing way. Different rooms well organised from toddlers to 10 year kids. I totally love the ambience which will be perfect for each and every kid there .The floor is shockproof, the stairs are toddler proof and even the minute detail is taken care of. I totally loved the garden area with slide were kids having amazing fun.

The Board room cafe – Unique games and yummy Vegetarian food 😍

Board room cafe has become the new hangout spot of the season The cafe is a dedicated space for board game enthusiasts. The boardroom is widely used by Top Corporate for their board meetings and training Programmes and also organizes events like stand-up comedy, music performances, etc.
[wpvideo KeBDGAZy]
Its a Board Game Cafe with over 250 games, that serves teas, pasta, paninis, and snacks. The food is yummy, the tea is one of (if not the) the best in the region, the ambiance homely and welcoming. This cafe is run by three founders Sriram, Varun and Shravan.

The Boardroom Cafe is genuinely a nice place where you’ll feel welcome and receive good service and quality. Also, the owners may be three of the most wonderful people you’ll ever meet. They help you out to explain the games patiently with a big smile in their faces. I wish them all the best, and a flourishing success to them.
When i got a invite to visit Board room I was totally excited as never visited a place full of games and food combination. Nowadays everyone busy with their own life busy schedule. Its the best place to spend amazing time together with family and friends to make memories. The place is nicely decorated and based on a unique concept and the place is quite attracting.
Ambiance is amazing:





All I can say is if you want to hang out with your friends, have a good laugh, chill and play games, this place is right for you! They have many board games that we customers can choose, and it isn’t just the normal board games we all know. The whole interior design of the cafe is great with wooden table and chairs instead of the cushion as well as we can sit for long and relax. I mean, the place is big enough for a huge number of friends, the only thing that bothers me is the chats off each crowd just mixes to one another causing huge noise pollution. But if you want to play and enjoy downstairs also in the cafe.

Once you start playing board games here I assure you that you and your gang will play and stay there until the whole cafe closes. They are plenty of quality board games for all ages and tastes, Its really enjoyable time with friends or family. Amazing and Commendable service and the people are helpful with the games and rules. Cost is affordable as well. Food: I am so happy as they have all vegetarian food. They have different varieties of teas, pasta, paninis, and sandwiches.




I tried Rajma rice, Marinara pasta, Spicy red garlic bruschetta ……The presentation of food is great and tasted amazing.

I liked the delicious taste of red pasta with the cream cheese..

Rajma rice could have been more spicy and less cook.

I also loved the ginger lemon tea which Improves Immune System. Check out their menu
Board games:


We played a game called patchwork, which involved earning coins, buying building blocks and filling up our board with the blocks, while progressing step by step on a spiral track.
When a player takes an action that moves his time token to the central square of the time track, he takes one final button income from the bank. Once both players are in the center, the game ends and scoring takes place. Each player scores one point per button in his possession, then loses two points for each empty square on his game board. Scores can be negative. The player with the most points wins.

Next, we played a card game, trying to have a full set of one type of cards while exchanging unwanted cards by auction like one to one, two to two, with other players. Had amazing fun playing with Srinidhi, Karthik Pasupathi, and others.

Finally, we played a game called “High Society” wherein the objective is to spend our money to buy various luxuries of life, avoid negative card, bid and buy deck has a dark green background – the three prestige cards, and the Scandal card. Players are socialites trying to live as lavishly and frivolously as possible, outbidding each other to prove they are living life to the fullest. At the end of the game, the poorest player (or players) will be cast out of the group. The remaining player who has managed to become the most fashionable, by collecting the highest value status cards, will earn the envy of all and win the game. As soon as the fourth one is revealed, the game ends immediately, with no bidding for the revealed card.

Check the collection of board games There were also traditional games available here !!!
Overall
At last, What I loved about this place is their neatly done creative interior……..
Location is simply banging on as it is opposite to luz corner which easily gathers college crowd.
The menu is pricey as compared to the spending capacity of a teenager
I rate 4/5 overall. I request to add some more dishes.
Overall good for teenagers as well as families as they have lots of board games to play around…
There are soooo many NEW and super COOL things at the cafe!!! A lot of International board games!! Hurry up friends check them out!!
Board Room Snacks and Games Cafe is still HIGHLY recommended because of the great atmosphere they have. The most perfect part of this cafe is the moments you and your friends will create while dining. If they’ll just upgrade the taste of their food and add some more varieties, I am a hundred percent sure that they’ll be one of the best eats in town!

Priyanjoli Basu – Founder Of Priyanjoli

We live in a modern world that offers us an abundance of choice and convenience. It’s easy to shop cheap, fast fashion. And, it’s easy to shop often. But, the choice is also there to shop slow, ethically, and sustainably. Slow Fashion is not your typical seasonal fashion trend, it is a movement that is steadily gaining momentum and is likely here to stay. I am talking about slow fashion as I got inspired by a Chennai based designer, Priyanjoli invited us for an open studio in her boutique.

I was very much excited to attend it as Priyanjoli is a niche clothing label that celebrates both handloom and the modern woman. Priyanjoli collaborates with clusters of weavers and artisans to create exclusive designs and texture. Priyanjoli Basu, Founder & Lead Designer Priyanjoli Basu was born in Kolkata into a family of empowered women who are passionate about heritage textile. and studied fashion and design at the London College of Fashion. The slow fashion label is doing this by bridging the gap between traditional techniques and the constant evolution of modern fabric.Sustainable fashion is often concerned with the environmental impact. Opting for fibers and materials that are organic, recycled, or repurposed, limiting harmful chemicals/dyes, reducing energy/water usage and waste, and overall choosing low-impact options wherever possible.
About the store :

They strongly believe in the ‘beauty of handmade’. Their store is full of attractive handmade things like ceiling, hand-painted cupboard and much more I totally love the ambiance. The best part about the label is the fact that they offer personalized client services. They make every woman experience a completely personalized one. This means that women of all sizes can wear a Priyanjoli creation… Isn’t did great ?? They also offer a reverse pick up and alteration service, in case of any further alterations.

Priyanjoli Basu shares her story
“…that she loves textiles, In the beginning, it was a fast fashion picking up clothes from different stores also working with designer making wedding clothes but she realized there weren’t good everyday clothes made out of textiles that we make in India. So she went to study in London came back to India . So the entire time between London and India she realized, that this is what she loves doing she like textiles and she not only like fashion but she likes the whole process os textile making so she decided to have a brand.
She started with a very clear chain of people working with her because she started realizing what kind of harmful effect clothing, manufacturing was doing to the planet and she was passionate about the cause. So she wanted to create something in clothing which will not affect the future of her child as well the future of the planet. So she started working mostly with people who needed support, who did not have the knowledge to change designs, capacity to evolve from where they wear to global market, so she started creating her own brand where they have handloom textiles, apparels, sarees, tops, skirts, dresses, pants and much more. She started the store with the idea of custom tailoring. to be able to meet women who come and tell what they like and what would look nice on them, she could change her mind by making her try something who really fits her. As she is from Kolkata she started working with weavers from Bengal and created a weavers community in Bengal where she empowered with technology, teaching them how to use WhatsApp and take pictures so that they can send it to me that the production is done would you like to change colors. I started teaching them ways to communicate, not just with me but also with other vendors which are really helping them. So this becomes a very interesting educational program for her to start teaching and communicating… To maintain these fashion projects we had a store named Priyanjoli and now it has been seven years online too. But the idea was, we wanted to be a household synonymously named with the word sustainable and ethical. This was one of the key reasons that we started the brand and the business. Keeping that as a philosophy, we created handwoven textiles that impact the planet giving good products packed without using plastic. However, our main motto is, Source from local weaver and create transparency from textiles to garments.”

As we can see their focus is on woven textiles with simple and contemporary aesthetics – giving way to global design.
You can also select a ready-made design by taking a look at their size chart (from petite up to Size 16). They also offer a reverse pick up and alteration service, in case of any further alterations. Though Priyanjoli does plenty of basics like casual tops, which are perfect to wear to work and some informal jackets, it is their ikat dresses collection that has caught our eye. Though the label is definitely not budget, but if u love environment you can give it a try…

We decided to go to the place, which was recommended by my son, on the occasion of mother’s day.The ambience of the café is as good as anything, adding on, the combo of music and food is just as splendid as it sounds! exciting! Another defining feature of this café is the varities and the options that it provides to its customers. It was really a hard time to pick the items from a large mix. It basically provides us with three categories, Starters, Main-course and the desserts.We handpicked the following respectively,For Starters,Jughead says… Garlic bread:The unorthodox garlic bread. The more creative and funnier the name, the tastier it tastes. It has a spongy and a crumbled base, topped off with bell pepper and a generous helping of parmesan. It is one of their signature dishes and is a must-try starter.Thy Fries:This is the mammoth-sized fries, which consists of Mediterranean piri-piri, Piri-Piri, Honeyglaze and Hazelnut fries, with a range of dips. These fries are the best in town and is a stomach-filling starter. Each of the four was so tasty that we were left licking our fingers.Cheesy Bread Pockets:These are cup-shaped baked breads filled with cheese and veggies. These bread pockets are mouth-watering when served and are hard to resist. With loaded cheese, it gives a melting look when cut. These pockets are an ideal starter for everyone.For Main Course,Lasagna Exotica:The love for lasagne never drops. In this veg. compilation of a creamy layer of cheese and exotic vegetables baked to delight your palate.Pesto Besto:In the pastas section, this seemed to impressed the most. It is the perfect combination of spice and can set your tongue rolling and topped with a healthy dose of parmesan. Along with it, comes breads which is a heavenly combination and as well as a top pick.For Desserts,The desserts are something, that I always crave for, the café had so so many varieties of mocktails, juices, mojitos, monster shakes, hot chocolates and waffles. We ordered ourselves the following,Blue Hawaiian:The perfect blend of a summer mock tail, which includes the likes of pineapple juice and blue coracao! This does give a relaxing feeling once it slurps down your throat, giving a magnificent feeling.Flamingo:The red-sweet devil of the town is here. This provides us a striking combination of Strawberry, Pineapple, Watermelon and Orange for a refreshing ride.Master Cleanse:These cleanse juices, are the most, healthy ones with real fruit pulp and it includes the pulps of carrot, beet, orange, apple and lemon to make you feel light as air. It also improves your mood! When nature enters you.So Ran the Berry:The king of monster shakes, this has become my instant favourite, the looks of this monster makes you drool all the way until sipped. This basically is a cranberry and blueberry shake, with the topping of whipped cream and sugar-sprinkles, it also has Cadbury gems embedded on the whipped cream. This one’s a must-try.Blue Lagoon:The all-time favourite combination of soda, sugar syrup and blue coracao pulp just got even better! The blue lagoon cannot be replaced and refreshes our mind to the fullest.Oceans Lassi:This is a freak-combo which will bamboozle you. The combination you never would have thought of, raspberries in a lassi. It is so tasty that you will slurp out the last drop of it, just like a kid,Winter is Here… :The best of its name. the most creative of names! I just ordered because of the name, being a big fan of GoT. This is basically waffle with a twist, shaped in bubbles and is known as “Bubble Waffle” it is filled with white chocolate, with vanilla ice cream at its core and filled with whipped cream and sugar-sprinkles. This is a perfect dessert indeed.[wpvideo g1zLZZhA]This is one of the best and the most innovative cafes in Chennai. They serve Allday breakfast and it’s open from morning till night..Rates are bit higher but it’s worth for the best. This is the one that will go the distance, trust me. It is the best spot for hanging out with friends and you can also play board games, sing a song or listen to some stand-up comedy. And, most importantly, the food, which is the best. A well spent MothersDay with my son..
