What Makes It Awesome

Nothing brings a group of people together like food and nothing cements a love for that food like understanding its flavours and nuances. Both sentiments that Something i ate, Bangalore's newest Test Kitchen and Deli, capture, share and explore to the T. 

When Nitya, Jacob and Thanik -- three passionate food friends with full-time jobs -- came together to start Something i ate, their only goal was to keep the conversation around foods from around the world alive; whether it was a dish you've already eaten or wish to try. Nitya stresses that first and foremost they are a test kitchen that is driven by experimentation and the understanding of flavours, native ingredients and processes from different cuisines. This knowledge they then share with the people. How? By rolling out a new menu every week with dishes they have worked on and perfected through the previous. Currently, their ever-changing menu has only two constants: a deli and a specials (hot meals) section. 

Their take on cured meats is no local ham shop show, instead, these are specialties you will find in every culture -- with Jamaican Smoked Pastrami, Honey Spiced Ham, Black Street Jerky already raging hits. While the week specials so far have seen the likes of iconic and lesser-known dishes -- Carnitas, Sourdough Griddle Bread, Thrissur Pork Roast and Yoshoku Gyutan Bento (braised meat tongue). We enjoy that the menu is detailed with notes on ingredients, inspiration and trivia. While you enjoy your meal, don't forget to continue your learning by checking out the detailed posts Something i ate puts out on their Instagram handle. 


Everything works on a pre-order and made-to-order basis at Something i ate. The menu is shared every Wednesday on Instagram or sent out as WhatsApp broadcast and orders closed on Thursday evenings. Expect deliveries on Saturday, so basically this is a weekend feast! Most dishes serve one to two and are priced between INR 450 to INR 650.
