It’s Coorg calling at these Restaurants in Town

    Though we are just a hop, skip and a short drive away, the cuisine of the Kodavas was practically unknown to us Bangaloreans, until a few years ago. It was then that Coorgs, who had settled in the city, decided to do something about this very sorry situation. And, for that, we are eternally grateful. Coorg restaurants and catering services now serve up classics such as Pandi Curry, Akki Rotti, Noolputtu, and a whole lot more. LBB gets on the Coorg food trail in Bangalore.

    The Coorg Food Co

    The Coorg Food Co.

    Kalyan nagar, Bangalore

    Everything on this restaurant’s menu looks inviting. There’s the fiery Thith Pandi, a dry pork dish that’s spiced with bird eye chillies, Mutton Chops, cooked in Coorg masalas and kachampuli {a sour vinegar that’s essential to Coorg cuisine}, and also pumpkin curry in coconut gravy. Pair off all this with traditional puttus, rice cakes or ghee rice and you’ve got a winner of a meal.

    Coorg - The Restaurant

    Patrons deem that this is the closest you’ll come to Coorg in Bangalore. Open for business only on the weekends, you’ll find buffet tables {they don’t do a la carte} laden with the best that Coorg has to offer. Do look out for their jackfruit and mango specials during the summers.

    Hotel Dil Coorg

    This hole-in-the-wall place is a good option if you are in the mood for a home delivered, budget meal. Order up Coorgi staples like pandi curry, chicken curry and akki roti and you won’t complain a bit.

    Northwind Restaurant


    Seshadripuram, Bangalore

    You’ll get everything from North Indian to Chinese and Mangalorean here, but it is the Coorgi dishes that you should watch out for. Country chicken curry, pork fry, chilly chicken {done Coorg style} are all part of the line-up and go splendidly with your tipple.
