I still remember those days when I used to crave for Dil Pasand, Tuti-Fruti, and Khara Biscuits from those family-run bakeries in Bengaluru. In fact, even today, I will go to these bakeries and get some Puffs and Rusk carrying a big smile and a feel of chastity within. Well, let me talk about the Classic Bakeries of Bangalore on today’s read and set some mood for lip-smacking bite to eat items.
Classic Bakeries of Bangalore
B.B Bakery, Chickpet
If Iyengar Bakeries are a name today then B.B Bakery is the Baap of all Iyengar Bakeries. This is one of the oldest bakeries of Bangalore, started way back in 1898. The legend goes like bakery’s owner learned to bake from an English customer and continued to create his own signature styled bakery items. They have outlets across the city and anyone who passes by B.B Bakery cannot control themselves to go in and have at least a piece of bun. Our favorites here are Palya buns, Khara Biscuits, and nicely baked hot bread slices.
