Life is awesome because of Food and life in Bengaluru is even awesome because you get to eat everything here from Idli, Dosa to Vada Pav, Pizza to Kheema, Biriyani to Rajma and Roti-Dal. It is rightly said that Bengaluru is a Foodie’s paradise and I have no reason for not agreeing to it. Being a Foodie I love exploring the corners of the city to find what’s new and what’s hot in Bengaluru. The city is so vivid and flamboyant that there is no end to it and the discovery is always on. On one end we have the legendary Vidyarthi Bhavan, and Brahmin’s Coffee like places and on another end there is a list of places in Bangalore for foodies to explore. Let me try to introduce you to few of those places which are infamous but worth visiting while you are here in the city.
Unexplored and Awesome Places in Bangalore for Foodies

The ambiance around makes it a perfect hangout point for breakfast/lunch with your friends and family.

Don’t miss these two legendary Military Hotels
Ranganna Military Hotel: All your craving for authentic military mess food will satisfactorily end in this 60-year old Ranganna Military hotel. This is a must and must visit for Non-Veg food lovers. Being in Bengaluru if you haven’t visited Ranganna Military hotel then don’t call yourself a non-veg foodie.
Start with Kheema Ball Curry and Thale Maamasa (head meat). Enjoy the savor of it and before you loose your consciousness in the drooling aroma of it, order Mutton Pulao. End the meal with a steaming rasam served in tiny steel glasses which is a must. One thing you should note about this place is that every piece of meat here is handpicked by Ranganna (owner) and all the masalas used here are ground fresh.

New Govind Rao Military Hotel: This 108-year old restaurant is insanely famous for Idlis and Kheem Curry. Their mutton pulao is equally toothsome and tangy which makes it a must-try dish. Do not miss to try the meat fries associated with chilli and pepper.

Easily Puligore tops the list of Must-Have Bengaluru Foods and Puliyogre point is a place to satisfy your appetite for an authentic Puliyogre taste. Only Puliyogre cannot please our ever hungry stomach and so this food point has Sakkare Pongal, Pongal, Coconut rice, and button idlis for you. Any meal in Bengaluru is incomplete without relishing the sip of filter coffee and so don’t forget to have coffee here. The puliyogre point may not be as famous as Vidyarthi Bhavan but the quality is definitely up there.
