If you are not a foodie then I must say, U better not go through the rest of the blog. Firstly I must apologize for the delay in posting my next blog. This can be attributed to the fact that I have been working my ass of now-a-days. To be frank I have been working on weekends for the past 3 weeks. This seems to have reached such a limit, that our Othlaa gang is actually thinking of dethroning me as the Othlaa and also thinking of renaming me as Workla(I know, this is a nice way of publicizing urself to proclaim to the world that "I work too"). Ok then, back to business now. This blog will contain a list of some of the unknown eateries that one could find in
A very popular street in VV Puram aka shettarpalya. A heaven for food lovers. You can find every dish from south Indian to North, American to Chinese. And what’s better is that they are damn cheap too. And in case you have a liking for sweets, then there are plenty of varieties to satisfy your sweet tooth too.
Route Info: Make your way to the national college fly over and then to Sajjan Rao circle. Ask anyone for directions there and am pretty sure, you will find this place.
Must Eat: Special cutlet at Chandra’s, Butter gulkhan and masala soda at Shivanna, Dosas
2. Gandhi bazaar:
A locality that existed probably as long as
Route Info: Gandhi bazzar by itself is a landmark, but in case you are from other parts of the city make your way to Ramakrishna Ashram and then to
Must Eat: Golgoppa at Bugle Rock, Bajjis at Bajji Corner(Near UD), Davanagere Benne Dose(next to Tyagarajnagar ICICI ATM). Also to finish off the feast, you can choose to either have a glass of fresh fruit juice at Ganesh or a sizzling brownie at Shiv Sagar.
A very popular and very historic land mark of
Route Info: Make your way to
Must Eat: A plate of Rava Idli(with ghee) and a Fruit Mixture(as they call it). This place recently started serving afternoon meals also. However personally I don’t find it worth enough.
Located in the heart of the
Route Info: Go to KR Market. Then enter Avenue Road. Once you enter Avenue road, there is a small gully that branches towards your right. Enter this road and you walk along to find the various stores. However I must tell you that you can easily get lost in this place and it would be better if you had someone who knows the place along.
Must Eat: Vada pavs at Bombay Chat Centre, Jamoon with/without ice cream, Floating pani puri opp Bombay Chat Centre,
This can be called a house rather than a eatery. It’s a home that has been converted into a
Must Eat: Sagu masala and tuppa khali(khali dosa roasted with ghee) are my picks. However, there would be a rice bath that changes daily.
6. Yelakki Chikanna:
This is another restaurant on the likes of Sidappa. Located near the old silk board, this place(like sidappa) isn’t known to many people. This place is so very difficult to find, that you might have a tough time to even find the place if it’s your first time. This too is a house that would be converted into a restaurant in the mornings only.
Route Info: Reach the Corporation bus stop and take a left to reach old silk board, then it would be wise to ask somebody for this place as it is difficult to explain the route through the gullies.
Must Eat: Mini masale(aka tiny masala dosas) and khali dosas that just melt in your mouth.
7. Brahmins Coffee Bar:
A one of its kind hotel in
Route Info: Get to Gandhi bazaar and then to shankarpuram police station, take the next left after the police station and i am sure you wouldn’t miss this place.
Must Eat: This is one place where i love everything. So do tryout all the items in the menu according to your preferences.
8. Shiva's Chats:
This a place located very close to my place so couldn’t resist mentioning it. Located near 50 feet road, hanumanthnagar, it’s a chat house which opens during evenings. Due to its proximity to my place, I am a regular here. Since it started, the place has undergone many changes and has had its ups and downs with its taste. However, this place should be visited once.
Route Info: Reach 50 feet road and ask for Kaggis Bakery. You will find this place right next to the bakery.
Must Eat: Sev puri and a hot place of masala puri (Especially if it’s raining of drizzling)
All the above mentioned places are some of my favorites and most of them could be found in South Bangalore(Since i reside here). I am pretty sure that there are many more such places in other parts of Bangalore. In case you know a few of them, do mention them in the comments.
