An old Bangalore favourite, Bamburies has been around since the late 70s and has served countless customers with fresh proteins, in-house meat products, seafood, and even a wide array of exotic cold cuts. Freezer looking empty? Then, a shopping trip to Bamburies is going to result in big rewards, we assure you. Located on the ever-busy Richmond Road, you can hop off the narrow footpath and into the pristinely kept Bamburies. Nine out of ten times, you’ll be greeted by Agnello Fernandes, the store’s owner. Started off by his father, Bamburies was a way to sell the extra produce from the family’s farm. Today, though, the meat is sourced from hand-picked farms around Bangalore. And products like ham, salami, and sausages are all produced in-house. The fact that the store has always been a stickler for quality and hygiene has kept the customers coming since the 70s.
The offerings at Bamburies are many. For your basic protein needs, you can pick up chicken, lamb, beef, and pork. You can get these in cuts that you prefer – fillets, mince, chops, and ribs. The seafood variety includes delicious names like Seer, Norwegian Salmon, Crabsticks, Tiger Prawns, and John Dory. Bamburies also counts herbed and cured meats as a speciality. They have a variety in locally-made sausages (pork, chicken, beef, and Goan) and also offer Chorizo Pork Sausages. There’s plain salami and also ones with cheese and fine herbs. Turkey products include everything from the breast to bacon (if you are looking for a healthy alternative to the pork version). They are open from 9 am to 7 pm on all days.
