This was on a bright, sunny, hot hot boiling summer and with my usual laziness and driziness, I went to HARD ROCK CAFÉ at St.Marks Road, M.G.Road, Bangalore. It was just a second my summer mood was vanished like anything, the interiors, chillness and the warm welcome given by their staffs was something great and felt chilled for this summer.
I was invited among few bloggers for the #TASTEOFMEXICO happening right at HARDROCKCAFE. Hard rock café was one of my long wait, as I have missed few meetups previously due to my daughter’s exam. And so this time made it with huge happiness. My eyes’s started rolling for their interiors, decorated with beautiful guitars, paintings, wall hangings and so on.

When I shared the experience, my son (4 yrs), wanted to take me there, for their guitar collections and my girl wanted to take me there for their tacos. So a best place for families, hangouts. Never miss the chance of tasting the #TASTEOFMEXICO here at our BANGALORE.
