Of breakfasts and backups..
We freshened up and Fi ventured out to get some breakfast from Kamat's (Masala dosas) and funnily enough, he also ordered the complimentary from the stay in hotel! As we were famished, we ended up gorging the masala dosas which were fabulous and fresh to the bite. The sambar was so good I wanted to drink it all off! Then half an hour or so after our breakfast came the bell-boy with the weird smelling free food. It really smelt burnt and tasted even weirder. Thank heavens for Fi actually getting the previous one! Total money spent = 100 rs.
GFA: Baker's treat
General food additives or GFA as I call it, is a one stop shop for everything a baker or a dessert chef needs. And work-wise, so did we. There are 2 girls who help about with the things that you need with utmost humility and the patience to tackle even the lengthiest of shopping lists. While the owner administered from behind the cashier's desk, the girls cut my shopping time in half. There are a plethora of baker's goods available here, a shop I liken to a small and neat Udipi hotel. Nothing is out of place. After almost an hour of buying chocolates, spatulas, forks, trays, molds, and what not..I and Fi thanked the owner for doing business with us and walked out. I have yet to try the chocolates I bought there for compatibility with my kitchen and recipes..but I am surely one satisfied customer.
Naughty, Naati Chicken
|I didn't even notice that guy standing|
there when I was clicking this board!
We came across one particular 'Sudha Military Mess' (in the by-lane opposite Royal Lodge,Near Kapali Theater ,Bangalore). The moment we stepped in, I kid you not, everyone literally stopped eating for a moment, turned around and stared blatantly! I guess they thought, "did these people get lost on their way to KFC?" It's a poor-man's hotel but I didn't care much for their stares as far as the food was concerned. While I fiddled with my mobile phone, Fi ordered the take-away and we moved out as soon as we came in..5 minutes in all. Ragi muddhe, Rice, Koli Saaru, Khurma and some kebabs. The ragi balls were a bit dry but the saaru was mind blowing. The kebabs were juicy, moist and spicy. We also ordered some of the same in 'Maruti mess' another day,and I found the ragi balls they served to be much more moist yet the saaru was way too spicy . I managed to treat Fi to a culinary delight and He says its worth going back to Bangalore just to eat some Muddhe - Mutton Saaru....true!
|These humble foods pack quite a punch! Incredibly tasty!|
|So tasty that I wanted to keep on eating even after I was way past full.|
Lunch for 3 = 160 rs!...........what a steal!
There are so many of such travel-tales that I want to share with you but I don't think one post would suffice it all. Hence I'll be back with some more reviews, experiences and food-ventures from Bangalore soon!
