Bangalore is known as the Garden City, IT Hub and also now the Pub City (thanks to all the breweries it has!) as well. But what many people don’t know, is that the food in Bangalore is a class apart as well. Here’s our pick of the best places you have to eat at when in Bangalore, so don’t miss even one!

Shri Sagar (C.T.R.)

Earlier known as Central Tiffin Rooms or CTR, now called Shri Sagar (C.T.R.). The crowd here is unbelievable; at any given hour, it is crowded. Getting a table will be a bit of a wait, but it’s definitely worth it! Benne masala dosa or the Benne plain dosa is simply the best you would have ever tasted.
