Sukh Sagar is an iconic restaurant in Koramangala and has been around for more than 10 years. Flocked by people of all ages, visit this spot for its filter coffee, pav bhaji and South Indian snacks. Try the fried rice here if you love Indo-Chinese food. We suggest heading here the first half of the day since it's usually crowded in the evenings.
Mooch Marod is a concept restaurant which serves 24-inch size parathas (which feeds about 4-5 people) accompanied with giant lassi glasses. Expect a dollop of butter on your parathas! We suggest trying the paneer gobi onion paratha (but keep in mind that you need to be extremely hungry to finish this one all by yourself). Head here for those days you're broke and missing homemade food with some great company.
