Bengaluru’s Military Hotels are legendary for their simple non-veg fare. The history of these hotels goes back to the military’s presence in the city since 1600s. The image of a “Military Hotel” is a small eatery that serves largely meat dishes with authentic home made spices. However much has changed in its ambience. What has not changed is the food. It is the city’s soul food, with hand-pounded masalas, rich bubbling hot curries, biryani and everything cooked on wood fire. In this walk, we visit Banashankari area, the temple which lends the name, the Military hotels and with stories of their own and most important of all – savour the dishes that make you drool.
Your Guide is a very well-known food blogger, YouTuber and a Bangalorean. As you walk with her and savour the local delicacies, she also dishes out interesting tales and anecdotes from a potpourri of the city’s communities and the origins of the dishes.
