A great mix of the young cosmopolitan crowd and old-fashioned locals has made Bengaluru the ideal place for lip-smacking food. While local favourites such as curd-rice, bisi bele bhath, poori-saagu, chow chow bhath, vada, idli-sambar, and dosas are dished out by the dozen in every other street, many fine dining restaurants are also experimenting with food inspired by the local fare.

When in Bengaluru, you must sample the everyday cuisine at small, local restaurants. Basavanagudi is the ideal place for you to find a number of these restaurants, each having their own specialties, and each one more delicious than the other. All of this for an absolute pittance.

You can also explore some authentic Karnataka cuisine while staying at luxury hotels in Bengaluru. Make sure to try out the Dakshin restaurant at ITC Windsor for finger-licking appams.

Visit the urbane Indiranagar for a gourmet experience at high-end restaurants. Eat gourmet meals while listening to live music to experience the city’s F&B culture at its finest. You can also find some of the city’s most popular microbreweries here.

If Indiranagar is too far for you, there are equally divine dining options all across the city. Lavelle Road, Koramangala, UB City, and Whitefields are all equipped with grand fine dining options, which will take you days to explore.

A Bengaluru experience isn’t complete without a visit to MG Road and Church Street. Lose yourself in the chic vibe of this area and hop into any of the pubs and restaurants here for a fulfilling night of music, food, and cheer.
