Thindi Beedhi:Food Street,Bangalore

1.05.2014 Bangalore, Karnataka, India

Bangalore has always surprised me.With the great choices of food we have everywhere,it is no doubt one of the best Culinary destinations in India.From the best Breweries to the best of Mexican to the Chinese to the Indian,the city has plenty to offer.It isn't that I haven't been to anywhere else,nothing compares the Phuchkas,Jaal Muri,Gugni and Fresh Fish fry in Kolkata or the delicious Butter Chicken and Paranthas in Delhi.However there is a catch,how many places in India offer the best South Indian?

The City's Thriving Street Food Starts in the night everyday

If by South Indian,your sense of taste is only confined to Idli,Vada and Sambar,it's time to explore more.Just the way we did the other day,like 2 weeks back.Me and my friends decided to skip the regular and head to famous among locals or people who live nearby and students yet unknown to majority of the crowd is the Food Street of Bangalore.The city's food joints along the whole section of road called "Thindi Beedhi"(Kannada word for food street) or Khao Galli.Situated at VV Puram,near to Lalbagh,has many local food joints by the road side and the food they make is by generous use of Ghee and Butter.Imagine a whole road dedicated to road side food including fresh yummy Pakoras,Cakes to Puddu!Also worth sampling is paddu, kolbade, akki roti, ragi roti and thatte idly at Idli Mane or the Bisi Bisi Masala Dosa.

This Sunday,I bring you a photo essay with the best of local food along with international at our very own Thindi Beedhi.

Pass on your plate please and remember the show starts at around 7 pm everyday and continues till almost midnight ;)

  1. Staying for more than 5 years in Bangalore and have never heard about this looks yummy visit MTR also near lalbagh ,heard that it is one of the best place to taste south indian dishes...

  2. Oh wow! I didn't know Bangalore had one of these khao gullies. I would've loved to check this out. God knows when I'm visiting next. The last time I was in the city, I was introduced to Hotel Hilal near Shivajinagar (I think)... at 3 AM! Strictly for meat lovers. But the ghee rice with butter chicken or methi chicken was just awesome. Also, you must turn a blind eye to the hygiene factor.

  3. Food seems so yummy, believe me, whenever I go Bangalore, I am gonna visit this place for sure... Very clear pictures and very good post...
