Foodies are great people – they love and live to eat! And because Mumbai to Bangalore flights airfare is usually so affordable, more and more foodies are flying in each day to Bangalore, an epicure’s paradise. If you are one too, or just looking for the best places to eat, here are the top seven irresistible places to eat in Bangalore:
Branches: Lalbagh Road, Gandhinagar, Whitefield Main Road, Kanakapura Road, St. Mark’s Road, JP Nagar 3rd Phase, Malleshwaram, HRBR Layout and Indiranagar
MTR chain of restaurants goes back a long way, right form 1924, and are now one of the most recommended restaurants for authentic south Indian food. Be sure to try their specialities – pure filter coffee, fruit mixture, Kesari Bhath, Khara Bhath, Bisibele Bhath, Chandrahara, Masala Dosa and Rava Idli. Owing to their popularity, they are usually crowded, but you can put the wait aside by calling up and reserving a table in advance.
Location: HAL 2nd Stage, Indiranagar and Church Street
The Only Place is all you need to fulfil your pies, burger, steaks and other Italian food needs. It has spacious ambience, warm service and is kid-friendly as well. The Only Place has a very Goan old school feel to it and is usually very packed, so you might need to wait a while for your table. Be sure to try their apple pie, it’s out of the world.
Address: 14/1, Wood Street, Richmond Road, Central Bangalore
Toast and Tonic offers an impressive balance of world cuisine using fresh local Indian ingredients. Their goal is to serve every plate more innovative than the last in their little place decorated with the appealing decor. They serve both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Most people love the pork ribs, brownie, lobster risotto, chocolate cheesecake, mushroom toast, pumpkin gnocchi and tomato soup here. Service is prompt, and their prices won’t set you back by much.
Address: Near Jyothi Nivas College, KHB Colony
This one is for all the Biryani lovers out there (is there anybody who doesn’t love a good biryani?) This little place in Koramangala has been serving the best Biryanis since it came up. Be it Veg Biryani, Paneer Biryani, Hyderabadi Biryani or Chicken Boneless Biryani that you prefer – they have it all on their menu. Their Chilli Paneer and egg curry make for the perfect accompaniments. The second-best thing here (the first best thing is their food, of course) is that their prices are very reasonable. You really are missing out if you haven’t eaten here.
Address: 16/3 Commissariat Road
If you like to enjoy a drink or four with your meal, then The Permit Room is the place for you. They serve fusion food – south Indian food with a twist – as well as fusion drinks in their restaurant cum bar. Rooftop seating is also available for those who like to enjoy their food while appreciating the Bangalore weather. Be sure to try their Coin Paratha and Pepper Chicken.
Address: Margosa Road, Malleshwaram
CTR is most dosa lovers’ first choice to enjoy a plate of Butter Masala Dosa that is finger-licking good. They also serve poori saagu, kesari bhath, idly and vada that is just as good. No visit to Bangalore is complete without a visit to CTR. See for yourself why this place is a legend.
Locations: Jayanagar, Basavanagudi, BTM Layout
No list of foodies is complete without including street food. Every Bangalorean knows Hari Super Sandwich mostly because of their chocolate sandwiches. It’s the best place to grab a quick bite at unbelievably low rates.
A lot of people might see Bangalore for the IT hub it is, but we foodies know there’s more to the city than just that. The place is an inspiring mish-mash of old and new and has a multitude of options to offer to everybody, be it a resident or a visitor flying in when Mumbai to Bangalore flights airfare is low.
