Indiranagar is blooming with new eateries and pubs every other week. 'Tata Cha', located in Indiranagar is one of the latest addition to the list. Despite being just a few weeks old, it looks like this tea cafe has become the new favourite  among foodies in the city.    

Apart from the spacious interior, the bright ambience  is what instantly attract one's attention. The idea to give the feel of a traditional 'tapri' (tea stall), has been thoroughly kept in mind and this can be seen in every corner of the cafe. From a vintage-looking wall painting, depicting the outside of a roadside tea stall to decking up the place with quirky milk kettles, photo frames and table lamps, this place gives enough room to be comfortable and make the best out of a casual hang out.  

If you are walking into the cafe thinking that this place serves only the regular tea snacks and cafe food, you might be surprised by what you will see on the menu. Keeping in mind the concept of healthy eating, you will notice that most of the food are prepared with less oil and are more tasty.  

Coming to the variety of beverages served here, one can start their  meal with a glass of refreshing tea-based cold beverage like the 'Masala shikanji'. The sweet and tangy taste will instantly make you feel fresh and the twist of green tea will add to a healthy start. This light fizzy drink is a good option for a tiring day at work.

You can also try the 'Tangy tamarind'. It is quite a thirst-quencher. The tangy taste with  a slight fizz can become a quick favourite.  

If you are looking for milk-based drinks, get ready to get amazed. The 'Meetha paan' milkshake is something one must try. The offbeat taste of this unique combination will surely take you by surprise. Even if you are not a 'meetha paan' fan, taking a sip is no harm.  

The 'Rasmalai milkshake' is another quirky drink that will make your day. All the sweet lover out there! It's your time to shine.

This place has not limited itself to only tea-time snacks. It has also focussed on full-fledged meals.  The 'Butter chicken khichdi' is an innovation in itself. If you are a chicken lover, this can be a good option to try. The well-cooked 'khichdi' and the tender pieces of chicken make it a mouth-watering start to a meal.

 Vegetarians can look forward to 'Muttar kulcha'. The 'muttar' gravy accompanied  with soft 'kulchas' is a great combination. This place aims at plating some regional and nostalgic dishes of India. A few such items on the menu  are the Sindhi delight 'Dal pakwan', 'Dabeli' of Kutch and popular 'Chakri samosa'. The authentic tastes of these dishes will surely leave you wanting for more.    

Complete your meal with the yogurt-based milkshake 'Mix berry'. Though it can be a refreshing end to your gastronomic rendezvous, the shake could be less thicker for easy sips.

However, if you are here for a quick tea, you can accompany it with dunkers like 'Cream roll' and 'Kulfi sticks'.    

'Tata cha' is located at  2985, 12th Main Road, HAL 2nd Stage, Indiranagar.  For details, call 1800-345-1720.
