Hear the Best Local Vegetarian Food Restaurants from a Foodie who thrives only on Vegetarian South Indian Food:
As a kid I’ve always eagerly looked forward to summer vacations as that was the only time in the year we would go on our annual ritual of visiting relatives in other cities and spend time. Bangalore of all those places has always been close to my heart as apart from the opportunity to play with cousins the city’s pleasant weather was an added bonus which would let you spend the whole day in the ground without the fear of a heat stroke (mostly the fear was my mother’s).
Apart from the weather, if there’s one thing which makes the city on the top my list of preferred cities is the umpteen vegetarian options the city offers. I’ve listed a few of my favorite options which you should try without fail if you are visiting the Garden City.
Vidyarthi Bhavan, Basavangudi
These guys have been serving mouthwatering Ghee Masala dosas & other South Indian delicacies for at least the last 50 years.The best part about this place is, most of the people who serve you the delicious food have been associated with them for more than 25-30 years each and in some cases two generations of the same family have continued serving hungry Bangaloreans. If you are anywhere in South of the city you should definitely visit the place and fill your belly with the tasty food and contribute to their long standing legacy.
Mavalli Tiffin Room, Lalbagh
If you are one of those who grew up watching “Malgudi Days” you could relieve them again by visiting MTR. Their first and oldest outlet in the city which is very close to Lalbagh Botanical Gardens will take you back to 80’s and you could get a unique food high on their well spread Lunch(Meals), which I bet you would give up half way through, as the people who serve will never let your Thali(plate) be anything less than full, until you say I’m done!
Eat Street , JC Road
Without any exaggeration this place is Bangalore’s own version of the Kumbh Mela. It will take you nothing less than 20 minutes to reach the other end of the street which is just a few metres away as there are so many different local cuisine offerings at pocket friendly prices, which makes it the go to place on weekends. Mind you all the options are vegetarian though.
