SGS Non Veg - Gundu Pulav


Want To Eat Biryani At 8 AM? Hit Up This Hole-In-The Wall Eatery Near City Market

Sumedha posted on 25 July


Want to eat biryani for breakfast? Check out this old-school restaurant, SGS Non Veg – Gundu Pulav, in City Market, before noon everyday.

What Is It?

Located in one of the alleys of Chickpet, SGS Non Veg – Gundu Pulav aka Cottonpete Donne Biryani or Chickpete Donne Biryani is an old-school joint that serves donne biryani — a popular variant of biryani in Bangalore. 

Who Is It For?

Of course for everyone, because biryani is bae!

What Is The Ambience Like?

It is no less than going through a maze to reach the place. But thanks to Google maps, you will be directed here rightly. You can take the metro till Majestic and walk to the place, or Uber it till Akkipete Circle and walk from there. Two-wheelers can comfortably reach the place with a bit of inconvenience, but cars are a no-no. But, all that trouble is totally worth the biryani here. The outlet has two floors, with a kitchen and darshini like self-service set-up on the bottom floor. Upstairs, you can take your biryani and settle onto a bench, but that is only if you manage to find a seat. It is a mystery as to how inaccessible this place is, yet how eternally crowded it is.

Must Eat

Biryani, duh!

More About The Experience

Donne refers to the leaf plate {the woven banana, palm, papaya leaves that make eco-friendly plates or bowls}, and the biryani is served on these — hence the name Donne Biryani. The biryani here is very different from the regular stuff made from long basmati rice, or for that matter, the blend of spices in it. This biryani looks yellow; in a way you can say that it lookes like lemon rice with chicken pieces in it. And hence, it’s rightly called chicken pulao. The piping hot chicken pulao is served in donne with cucumber, onion slices on top and half a boiled egg. For just INR 90, the quantity is good to share if you’re a small eater, or just right for a large eater to have solo. The blend of coriander leaves, mint, masala, chicken and ghee is all kinds of magic.  And if you like biryani as much as I do, you must join the Bengaluru Biryani Club.

Anything Else?

The outlet operates from 10 am to 2 pm from Tuesday to Friday, and 8 am to noon on Sundays, or until stock lasts. They also serve mutton pulao on weekdays and chicken Kshatriya in the evening.
