The Bangalore Pantry, Indiranagar

An unexpected and interesting find! The Bangalore Pantry looks just like a college canteen and has a very interesting menu. We had actually planned for Glen’s Bakehouse that was long pending and after no food and some really bad experience there, we thought of going to Toit. And as luck would have it, Toit turned out to closed! And then I guess the food gods took pity on us and I noticed the board for Bangalore Pantry.

The place doesn’t look very appealing from outside with its scary metal staircase. The decor doesn’t have much except for plain wooden tables, some wooden benches and metal chairs. We were contemplating whether to stay or go when the gracious owner lady showed us to our table. The place has some old style switches, not sure if they are intentional, but they surely did bring back memories of my ancestral house in Bengal 🙂

Chaat Wala, Koramangala 5th Block

Decent place for having chaats.

Service is painfully slow. We visited on a sunday evening, when this place was not too crowded.

Ordered a plate of samosas, papdi chaat and aloo tikkis. Samosas took around half an hour to arrive, and didn’t taste fresh. Papdi chaat was good and tikkis were okay.

Will visit next time and try out a few more things.
