    Stuffed Pepper Taco @ Krazzy Folds

    Krazzy Folds

    Jayanagar, Bangalore

    Cheerful and popular with the crowds, this restaurant has a handful of ‘krazzy’ sounding tacos. There’s a paneer version, of course. But we have our eyes firmly set on the Stuffed Pepper Taco – where the peppers are stuffed with gooey cheese before being batter fried. It’s then stuffed into a soft taco along with tomato salsa, black beans, and slaw. During summers, they even have a jackfruit taco that’s worth teasing your palate with.

But the one that stands out for us is the juicy Beef Steak Tacos. Slices of beef are fried up with onions and green peppers before being doused in cheese and added to the taco. Drooling yet?

    Carnitas @ Chinita Real Mexican Food

    Chinita’s commitment to the real deal means that this is as close to Mexico you can get without dropping precious money on airfare.

Vegetarians can go for the Roasted Cauliflower avatar.
