Array My Favourite Food Joints in Bengaluru-1 - NotSoCordial
My Favourite Food Joints in Bengaluru-1

Known as the Silicon Valley of India, and also the third most populous city of India, Bengaluru is really popular for its IT hubs and pubs. I am not a pub or clubbing kinda person but I am a hardcore foodie and I often keep my eyes open for the pretty cafes and restaurants. I was working in Bengaluru for about 16 months and during that period of time, I was lucky enough to be staying in Koramangala, where all the nice eateries were stationed or were just a few minutes away from. So, if you ever happen to visit the city, here’s a list of my favourite food joints in Bengaluru.

Smoke House Deli

Cuisine: European, Italian, American, Salad
Average Cost: INR 1600 for two people
Smoke House Deli- Bengaluru

There are various joints of this place but the one that stole my heart was in Indiranagar. What an amazing place! The interior is all-white with doodles on the wall. With a classic vintage appearance, you are bound to be in awe of it even before tasting its food. Now comes the food. I had the Creamed Mushroom and a Cucumber, Basil and Lavender Lemonade for starters. Then I had a Roast Chicken and Smoked Tomato Lasagna for the main course. For dessert, I tried their famous cheesecake and trust me, it melts in your mouth. Even if you hate cheesecakes, you are surely going to love this one! 

Glen’s Bakehouse

Cuisines: Bakery, Cafe, Italian, Desserts
Average Cost: INR 600 for two people

This has to be one of my favourite places to eat in. I stan this place since anything you eat here, I bet you will leave smiling like a goof. Even their hot chocolate is amazing. I have eaten so many times there that it is really difficult to pick a dish but I will recommend some of my personal favourites- Mushroom and Parmesan soup, Creamy Mushroom Sandwich, Chicken Salami salad, Paneer Goes Mexican pizza, Peri Peri Chicken Pizza, Lasagna (Veg and Non-veg).

Hole In The Wall Cafe

Cuisine: Cafe, American, Burger
Average Cost: INR 600 for two people

My go-to breakfast place. This has a sister branch called Hole Lotta Love Cafe but the menu at both places is exactly the same. A house-turned cafe gives off very friendly and comfortable vibes. With fun games to play and a bookshelf in the corner, this is an easy place to be. I could easily hang around here for hours without getting bored. My favorite things to eat here are The Farmer’s Breakfast and The Grilled Chicken Sandwich. Their smoothies are delish and their pancakes are a must. 

So, these were my top three personal favourite eating joints in Bengaluru. I will come up with some more themed cafes pretty soon. So, stay tuned! πŸ˜€
