Ten-Second Takeaway

HSR Layout has seen plenty of development in recent years, and some of it has fortunately stopped at the right time too. HSR has the feel of a big city neighbourhood and that of a cozy small town one as well. But what HSR does have isa buzzing street food  scene. From seekh kababs to momos and hot soups to parathas, there is lots to try out at HSR Layout. All you need is some time, willingness to walk the streets and ample tummy space to explore its character, by sampling the food.  So here are the five most interesting or unique street food joints in HSR Layout.

Spicy Grilled Chicken Seekh Kababs

It’s common to see fried chicken and fish carts on the street, but a seekh kabab cart in Bangalore? Now that’s refreshingly different! There is only one dish on the menu here – The Chicken Seekh Kabab that makes its presence felt by all the amazing meaty, smoky aroma you get as you approach the cart. The sight of the smoking kababs, the sound of them cooking on the grill, the smell that pulls you to the cart and most importantly, the taste of these succulent kababs is something that any meat lover would die for. Ravi, the stall owner, serves these seekh kababs smoking hot, fresh off the grill allowing you to enjoy the entire experience.

    Stew & Simmer Paratha Cart

    With a lot of North Indians moving in to HSR for work and life, this paratha cart is a delight for those missing home food as well as something new to try for namma Bengalureans. The parathas are generously stuffed with a selection of veggies or the traditional Bihari sattu {flour made from a mix of cereals and pulses}, which is one of the reasons for the crowds that throng this cart.

      Sri Ganesha Hot Soup

      This cart is something you wouldn’t spot unless you actually stumble upon it while walking down this street. This is a very small cart that offers five kinds of hot soup everyday with the vegetable and mushroom versions being the most sought after. Vallarmati makes these soups herself and makes it a point to garnish them with fresh coriander, spring onions and even sev for interesting textures and flavours. Perfect stop on a rainy evening.

      Momo Counter

      Although this stall looks like any other momo stall and even offers the same dish basically, his momos have been highly recommended by people. What’s great about these momos is that they are liberally stuffed with adequate quantities of vegetables or chicken mince, while maintaining a good balance of flavours. Both his vegetarian and chicken momos are equally good, and picking one over the other is quite difficult.

        Bombay Sandwich & Roll

        It’s quite rare to see a street-side sandwich stall in this part of Bangalore. And these sandwiches {and rolls} are made “Bombay style” thanks to Satish who wanted Bangaloreans to taste what he learnt in Bombay for over 10 years. He offers 50 items on a daily basis including classics like bread butter, and other creations such as the Vegetable Paneer Toast and some unusual ones such as the Chocolate Sandwich. He proudly serves all his dishes with an appealing sev and onion garnish making the sandwiches even more interesting!
