‘Asha Tiffins’ is a small place in HSR that serves super-cheap but incredibly delicious snacks and filter coffee. We always used to eye this place with curiosity, since it was always packed with customers, and all of them standing. Upon visiting, I discovered there are some benches inside to sit, but as always the place was packed; so we took a table outside.
Menu is very basic and has the usual: vada, idli, filter coffee, some soups, couple of meals etc. The eatery is very clean and service is fast.
MTR is a name most of us are familiar with and their outlet on St. Marks road has been a favourite since a long time now. I have been there innumerable times and never been disappointed with food or service.
So I felt compelled to write this piece for those fellow Bangaloreans who haven’t been to MTR yet 🙂
South Indian breakfast cravings sorted!
Saturday morning we were craving for a South Indian breakfast, but none of us wanted to venture out. The newly launched UberEats came to our rescue and we placed an order from Idli & Dosa Cafe for idlis, vada, poori sagu, plain dosa and kuzhi paniyaram (don’t judge, we were hungry 🙂 ).
This place had been on my list for a long while, but we never got around to visiting it for some reason or the other. Over the long weekend, we decided to tick it off our list and went for lunch. But I was on one of my vegetarian streaks, and didn’t try out any of the non-vegetarian fares 🙂
BonSouth looks like a big village house with whitewashed walls and a mini garden. There’s a waiting area outside lined with cushions that add just the right pop of colour. The place is huge with plenty of seating available, both indoor and outdoor.
I had seen some beautiful photos of this place on different websites, and when hubby suggested it for lunch, I agreed immediately. But going so far for lunch, I thought the place better be good.
Malgudi vattika is spread over a large area and is covered with lush greenery. They have basic wooden furniture, which looks quite charming. The place reminded me of my village actually 🙂
They have a separate section for a-la-carte North Indian and South Indian food, and for South Indian meals. We opted for meals and bought tokens for jowar thali (thali with jowar roti) and poori thali (pooris instead of jowar roti).
Have mixed feelings about this place. I had visited the Southindies outlet near Infantry road quite a few times, when I was staying in that area, and I must say that outlet was far more beautiful than this one. Even though the food is good here, the place is slightly mismanaged.
We went here this Saturday, with a reservation through Zomato, but still had to wait for a while before we were ushered to our table. They have some outside seating too, and I was glad that we got a table there overlooking the busy 100ft road.
Went here with family for evening snacks and tea. It’s a small place with a few tables.
We ordered for vadas, veg bullets, cutlets, buttermilk and coffees. They were out of sabudana vadas.
Everything tasted average, and the cutlets never arrived.
Go only if you have no other options.
