DISCOVERING BENGALURU – A FOODIE CALENDAR

 

There’s nothing like going to a big fancy restaurant wearing your best set of clothes and spraying on your most expensive perfume. Especially, with date night around the corner, it is a bit tedious shortlisting the most impressive restaurants in town.

Listening to silverware cling against that diamond ring you bought last summer and devouring that perfectly seared salmon through the reflection in those Swarovski earrings sounds amazing only when you read it. When it comes to comfort food, you’d rather don your most comfortable pyjamas and hit the streets. After all, isn’t that where the authenticity lies.

The streets of Bangalore are always brimming with tantalising delicacies. Some of these treats may be found in and around areas such as Basavanagudi, Commercial Street, Frazer Town and Jayanagar, to name a few. It’s almost impossible to miss seeing a cart with a menu painted on the sides… hidden in thick flavourful clouds of smoke… filling the streets – always the crowd pleaser.

Every dish, thoughtfully made to suit every craving, ranging from a delectable chaat to a mouth-watering pav bhaji, to bajjis and bondas and dosas – the streets have it all. For someone who is not from around Bengaluru, street food is the first place to start to truly understand how food plays such a huge part in our culture. Hygiene would be a debatable issue, but if you know where to go, that stops being such a big problem.

During the festival seasons, the streets of Koramangala, BTM Layout and Frazer Town come alive. The street vendors don’t shy away when it comes to portions or taste. An evening with friends, our loud and lively city and these delectable delicacies at prices even a teenager could afford – street food is indeed the best way to discover Bengaluru.
