Bangalore preview

India

Bangalore has a wide range of eating options, from simple establishments serving local cuisine, to specialty restaurants featuring international fare. You can eat a whole meal for as little as Rs. 50, or an appetizer for as much as Rs. 1000. Much depends on what you are looking for, but Bangalore has something to offer every palate.

Surprisingly, the hardest thing to find (in all its range and subtleties) is local Kannadiga cuisine, simply because most restaurants serve a limited range of dishes. You are more likely to come across some of the finer local dishes at someone's home than you are in a restaurant. What is easily available however, is the traditional South Indian breakfast, served at many eateries across the city. Dosas (savoury pancakes made of rice and lentil flour), idlis (steamed rice cakes), vadas (savoury doughnuts) and upma (a spicy semolina dish) make for a quintessentially Bangalorean breakfast.
