Launch of Toys R Us, Phoenix Market City, Bangalore

Standard

Toys R Us is been a known brand to me, as a mother almost 10 years, when I was there in U.K. Later coming to India, there were times we use to talk about the toys we got for my daughter at Toys R Us, U.K. Very happy and more excited when I got an invite for the launch of Toys R Us at Phoenix Market City, Bangalore. My kids were more excited about the launch, and their guess for offers and more new toys.

Global retail Toys R Us, launched their first store in Bangalore at Oct 7th, 2017. Tablez India, Franchise of Toys R Us is been expected to open 65 stores all over India by 2025. Tablez India, a division of Abu Dhabi-based LuLu Group International already has an exclusive master franchise agreement with US companu, Toys Pvt. Ltd., launched the global retail brand Toys “R” Us in the Indian market in Bangalore. Toys “R” Us operates more than 859 eponymos and Babies “R” Us stores in North America and its porducts are sold at 1/00 inter-stores in 37 countries.

Also Toys “R” Us was inaugurated by five young achievers from Karnataka along with Adeeb Ahamed, Managing Director, Tablez and Shafeena Yusuff Ami, Chairperson, Tablez India.

In India, the brand has launched the store in two formats – Toys “R” Us which is the world’s leading toy store and Babies “R” Us, a one-stop destination for baby essentials. The store is designed to be an experimental store and is spread over 20,000 sq.ft.

As the world’s largest Toy store, Toys R Us offers toys for all range for both boys and girls and had dedicated section for each category.

There was very big section for soft toys, different section for Barbie, Frozen, and sport toys like basketball, boxing equipment. A wide section for remote cars, Fast track cars, Hot wheels (my son’s favorite), Lego Land, including educational toys, art and craft, books, games and puzzles in learning category.

Babies “R” Us is the quintessential stop for new and expectant moms and young parents with full range of products like diapers, baby food, wipers, needs for feeding moms and so on. Also, they had bedding, travel, safety, baby gear, infant care and apparels for babies. There was also themed bedding collection for toddlers like Barbie, Thomas.

The launch was very well organized with workshops, face painting, nail art, whereas kids got to meet the giraffe from Geoffrey. They also have more activities and there was offers, every kid who registers on that got a gift voucher worth INR. 1k and more over many vouchers.

I would highly recommend Toys “R” Us being a mother of two kids – A girl and A boy. As I could get toys for both of them at a same place and no more roaming with many varieties. Happy me and Visit Toys “R” Us, I am sure you will also include the wordings – “Happy Me”

Standard

Got an invite for Kababs and Korma Bazaar food festival at Whitefield Marriott, Bangalore and food festival is from Oct 9th till Oct 14th from 12:30 p.m till 3:30 p.m.

This Kabab and Korma Bazaar Festival is celebrated the heritage of Nawabs and Mughal rulers who introduced Kababs and Kormas to India. The enigmatic Chef Pushkar Singh Mehra of Bengaluru Whitefield Marriott, have curated the menu and prepared a collection of delectable kebabs and rich kormas. The kebabs where doused in yogurt, covered with spices and grilled over charcoal flame. The richness of Kormas take us to the period of Mughal royalty with a royal dinning.

There was live section, where the kababs are grilled over charcoal and also there was also live section for roti, nan and paratha. Let me share the food with pictures, I had –

Shorba – Subziyan Ka Akr – The shorba was delicious with perfect texture, the way it was served was eye catching. The soup plate had few pieces of carrots and beans along with saffron strands over the sides of the plate and later the soup is poured over the veggies and then was about to consumed.

Kebab – Sahi Galouti Kebab, Murgh Tikka Mirza Hasnoo, Palak Chilgoza Tikki and Peeli Mirch Ka Tikka. All the four Kebabs was outstanding and filling.

Main Course

·         Nalli Nihari – Being one of my favorite dish with Lamb, the lamb was cooked tenderly, as it was little chewy, juicy and melt in mouth. Must to try.

·         Mahi Mussalam – The korma was too good, where the fish pieces are fried and added to the korma.

·         Lagan Ka Murg

·         Dal Gomti

·         Paneer Khushrang

·         Subz Noor Maha Parda Biryani – Although being a veg version, the briyani tasted yumm.

·         Ghost Awadhi Biryani

·         Khush Ka Chawal

Breads – Naan E Tanak –  is prepared from the fermented dough, it was too soft and yum with porous texture and Ulta Tawa Ka Parantha.

Desserts – Sahi Phirni, Shimla Mirch Ka Halwa – Definitely a must to try, it was good and Nizam Ki Nazakat – It tastes similar to Gulab jamun, filled with nuts.

Food Review – The Kabab Studio, Bangalore

Standard

Got an invite for “The Kabab Studio” – Gold finch for their Punjabi Food festival. This was my second time after a year, they have outdoor dining area, where it would be more scenic with fresh area, but due to rains on the day, I couldn’t enjoy that area.

The restaurant was very spacious, they had 4 to 5 live counters, for the Tawa parathas, Keema roll, Tawa Chicken, Chat counter and Dessert counter. This festival was executed under the Chef Dayal Singh, Master Chef of The Kabab Studio.
