Bangalore’s favorite restaurants /eateries:
Bobby's Dhaba: Serves homemade parathas (Indian flat-bread), dal (lentils) and pickles. Next to the Sri Guru Singh Sabha Gurudwara in Ulsoor, this roadside food-stop only announces itself with one easy-to-miss sign… so look hard!
Gangotree Sweet Shop: Serves delicious chaat, savory snacks consisting of different mixtures of fried dough, and spiced potatoes.
Nagarjuna: This restaurant on Residency Road serves great Andhra-style biryani.
Karavalli: Not to be missed. South Indian cuisines from Coorg, Goa, and more. A Bangalore classic for many decades and still going strong.
Koshy's: more than a classic—an institution!
New Sri Sagar (also known as Central Tiffin Room): One of the most famous dosa joints in Bangalore. 'Dosas'—the savory rice and lentil crepes that South Indians eat for breakfast or afternoon snacks. Don't miss the frothy South Indian coffee!
Adiga's: A modern dosa experience with a shiny black counter, standing tables options, and trendy fruit juices and shakes.
Egg Factory: Omlettes and frittatas and much more! Don't miss the cold coffee and fresh lime soda—they’re as authentically Indian as beverages can get!
Cafe Coffee Day: the ubiquitous Indian coffee-shop chain. A nice place to while the hours away and sip on single-origin Indian coffees.
The Biere Club: Bangalore is a city of pubs—some say it has the most pubs in Asia! The Biere Club is the city's first micro-brewery.
