Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner: Head To These Restaurants For A Hearty Meal
Tibetan Mother's Kitchen
This quaint restaurant is on the second floor of a complex but don’t be fooled by the lack of aesthetics here. The thukpa will surely fill your belly. Great for both veg and non-veg options, try the tingmo with beef, honey chilli potatoes and butter garlic fried rice. And if you want something more basic, the momos here are great!
Lot Like Crepes
Pamper your sweet tooth at this tiny joint in Koramangala. They serve up crepes, both sweet and savoury ones that make for the perfect light dinner. We particularly like the toffee, chocolate and nutella options served with the strawberry, kiwi and banana filled crepes. The mushroom and chicken flavoured ones are our favourites in the savoury section. Be sure to ask for their specials in case you’re confused about what to order. Don't expect elaborate seating here as the place is a hole in the wall joint and you might have to stand and enjoy the crepes.
Nagarajuna in Indiranagar is a great option for Andhra style cuisine. The veg meals here will lull you to sleep. We also suggest the chicken biryani, chicken fry, mutton roast and fish curry for the omnivores. A meal here for one will cost you under INR 250 (and you might be taking some leftover food as parcel back home). Comfortable seating arrangements and healthy, hearty heaps of unlimited rice, lentils and curries, can't get better for a good night's meal we say.

This little eatery is perfect for meals after your drinking sessions. Within INR 500, you can easily get a meal for two. The roomali rotis, mutton kheema rolls and mutton baida rotis are our favourites here. If you’re looking for something more basic, the simpler rolls start at INR 80. Wooden stools to sit on provide the perfect street side feels to the meals.
If you want to have more of these on the go rolls for dinner, here are some of the places where you can get the best rolls in the city.
An eternal favourite, Truffles is an iconic restaurant that serves continental and American style cuisine (and now even Indian and oriental). The burgers (a special mention for the delightful All American Burger), pasta, appetizers and mud pie are our recommendations here. It gets crowded over weekends so be sure to get dinner here on weekdays unless you’re willing to wait around for a bit.
Konark Vegetarian Restaurant
Vegetarians, we’ve got you! Konark has great veg food -- selling Indian breads to go with creamy curries and pulaos to follow. Their Thread Paneer and Chinese Bhel can start you off on a pleasant note for any meal you're going to have here. For you South Indians, try the Bisi Bele Bath and dosas. The Channa Batura here is legendary as well. Costing a little over INR 200, it's hearty meal that has our heart.
Being a vegetarian isn't tough in this city and here's why.
Serving some of the best Lebanese food in the city, head here for shawarmas with french fries. Jumbo and regular rolls are both available here. Vegetarians should try the falafel rolls. A favourite amongst residents in the area, the folks here also serve mutton versions of the rolls as well.
