Food lovers will agree with us when we say that food, even in its most tried-and-tested avatars, can never bore. But once in awhile, it’s great to see restaurants and chefs test the boundaries between deliciousness and bizarre. Here are 2017’s best weird food trends.
Chocolate Panipuri, Black Ice Cream, & Dosa Waffles: The Coolest Food Trends In Town
The pizza embraced pizzazz this year. The Pizza Bakery, a new entry on Bangalore’s crowded pizza scene, threw all caution to wind and set things ablaze with their Flambe Pizzas. If you like to go all out with your pizza, then, a slice or two of the Masala Fries Pizza at Hungry Hippie, in Koramangala, ought to do the trick.
Street Food Goes Gourmet
Spiffy restaurants and cafes handpicked street food favourites and gave them a spruce up. At Tata Cha, you can mop up plates of Butter Chicken Khichdi and at the Little Green Cafe you can sign up for Pav Bhaji Fondue. Prefer actual street food? Then, have your fill of Chocolate Panipuri at this Rajajinagar Stall. Or chomp on a Naanwich from this food truck.

Momos Gone Wild
No other dish was taken apart and reinvented like the momo. Enerjuvate Cafe & Studio led the movement with ragi momos and even maize ones. The icing on the cake was the Momosas where the momo meets the samosa. Momo Jojo spiced things up with eight avatars of the dish while WOW! Momo presented us with the, wait for it, mango momo.
Waffles surely filled us with wonder this year. Just a few weeks ago, Jayanagar welcomed Bubblewrap Waffle Co — where the bubbly and airy waffles are served as cones loaded with Nutella, Oreos, white chocolate chips and whatnot. Also on offer are Waffle Pizzas and Waffdogs. Meanwhile, for those of you hankering for a desi twist, there’s Double Decker that serves Dosa Waffles while health nuts can go crazy with the waffle brownies at RawStraw in Kalyan Nagar.
