Bengaluru Food Guide – The Best Street Foods You must Try
Over the past couple of decades, the street food culture in Bengaluru has blossomed. Boasting of a cosmopolitan vibe, it is a melting pot of different cultures as people from all over the world call the ‘Silicon valley of India,’ home. The large influx of people from different cities has had a massive impact on the local street food scene; it has become more diverse.
If you are in the garden city, and you are hit by hunger pangs, here are some of the best street foods in Bangalore you must try.
Bangalore is a city of many innovators, so naturally the city has its unique signature chaat, i.e., Bun Nippat. It is a simple dish where a crisp and deep-fried masala nippat is placed between a fresh and hot bun, and is served with chopped onions, grated cheese and a whole lot of secret sauce/chutney. Pair this with a glass of lassi or buttermilk, and you would feel you are floating in the food paradise. There are many eat streets in Bangalore that have Bun Nippat stalls, and you can try it to get a real feel and taste of the Bangalore street food.
Okay, lets us just agree that this is not a quintessential Bangalorean street food. But, who cares about its origin and history when the dish is so heartwarming. Popular in North India, this unique fusion food where Indian Gobi (cabbage) meets China’s Manchurian sauce, has found many takers in Bangalore.
The bite-sized balls are perfectly spicy, greasy, and leaves you completely satisfied. The outer crunch adds a bit of flavour and a whole lot of joy to the eating experience. It is one of the most famous street foods in Bangalore that you must try, especially if you are craving for something spicy and utterly delicious.
Don’t raise your eyebrows yet. We all know that Delhi momos are legendary. However, the momos from Bangalore have carved their own identity and have a huge fan base. The momos here are much smaller in size, with a softer crust, and much spicier that is sure to awaken your taste buds instantly.
The stalls selling these little morsels of heaven are omnipresent in Bangalore, but the best places to visit in Bangalore to have momos are Whitefield, Koramangala, and Indiranagar.
Bangalore has a knack for doing things in its own way, and add a signature touch to everything. And, the best example of that is the Craft Burger. Miles ahead of the regular burgers that you get at the fast-food joints, these handcrafted burgers are a huge hit among the locals in Bangalore.
These burgers come in different varieties with different ingredients and tastes, giving you a memorable eating experience. It is one of the best street foods in Bangalore that is sure to calm your hunger demons and leave you smiling from ear to ear for tasting something so delicious.
Mere mortals can never say no to ice cream, right? And Bangalore has added a bit of drama and theatre to the all-time favourite dessert. When you order your favourite flavour ice-cream, you can see the ice cream craftsman place the ice cream on the slab of a cold stone and smash and mix the concoction until it has a silky smooth sundae-like texture and is beautifully mixed.
Once mixed, the ice cream is served in a waffle bowl, the delicious crunch of the waffle and the sweet and cold ice cream creates a stunning contrast of texture and flavour that is a joy to eat.
So, there you have a list of some of the best street food you must try in Bangalore. When you are in the city, you can book your stay at the Eagleton Golf Resort, a Club Mahindra affiliate resort in Bangalore. It would be the perfect base for all your Bangalore adventures.
