Tiffin Box Etc is a new entrant in the fast growing restaurant business in Bangalore. Located at Inorbit Mall, whitefield – one of the tech hub of Bangalore, Tiffin box intends to cater to the office going people at lunch and the family at dinner. This is a good concept of targeting a particular type of patron. I liked their concept of packaging their food experience in Tiffin. The Tiffin Box has a very nostalgic touch with almost every person. In younger days one might have carried a tiffin box to school and one might still carry one at office. So the idea of being able to get a tiffin box without the need to carry one from home could be a sell out!
I had the opportunity to visit Tiffin Box Etc recently. To start with the interiors have been done with refreshing idea but with a nostalgic touch. Tiffin Boxes hanging on one side, lights fitted on traditional milkman kettles and contemporary art on the wall should make one feel ease with this place.
Their concept of food is also very interesting. They have selected their menu based on four regions of India – namely Bangalore, Mumbai, Kolkata and Delhi. Based on this they have four types of tiffin boxes – namely Delhi tiffin box, Kolkata tiffin box, Bangalore tiffin box and Mumbai tiffin box. They also serve some desi cuisines which developed with Indian expats in the UK.
Tiffin box has good collection of snacks like vada pav, Channa chaat, daahi vada, peanut vada etc and not just full course meal. Among beverages one can choose from Lassi, Shikhanji, Kapi, tea, coffee, soft drinks etc. Check their menu to get a complete idea. The veg and non-veg menu has been made with due thoughts. Food is available in buffet spread, la crate or tiffin box (serves two). A tiffin box typically cost Rs 320 for veg and Rs 420 for non-veg.
Lunch buffet is available in between 12 noon to 4 pm and cost Rs 350 + taxes. Dinner buffet is available in between 7 pm and 11 pm.
Let me tell you what did I had there. I started my lunch with sweet corn soup. Progressing to rogan gosht, chikken tikka, kholapuri chiken masala, panner biryani and couple of nans. Dishes to look out for is chicken nalli nihari and Kholapuri chicken masala. In deserts came butter scotch ice cream, blueberry cheese cakes, caramel custard and gulab jamun. With such nice line of food it should be okay to leave tiffin box at home once in a while and head to Tiffin Box Etc. Those who are working in the tech hub of Whitefield and do not have the option of getting a tiffin box from home, Tiffin Box Etc is open when you need food.
