I had to have five lunches by myself in Bangalore, and I reached out to my friends on social media for help. The result is a crowd-sourced list of 46 places to eat in Bangalore with recommendations. I have also written short notes about the places I ate at.
I check out Udipi's Upahar in Kondapur, and it inspires a longish post. Does it pass the sambar test? Is the taste authentic? Is the filter coffee up to scratch? Are there any more of my terrible jokes in this review? Find out everything - read it right now!
An account of a visit to a typical Hyderabadi restaurant, Prince Hotel, where I get amazing chai and shawarma, and a dose of the famous Old City life and culture.
