Food Street in Bangalore – I am amazed that in so many years I never discovered this place. Which is probably the biggest eating joint in Bangalore and also the best. I am told it is popularly known as Food Street. This is a small street where the address on the sign boards reads New Market Road, V V Nagar, Bangalore – 560004.

Food Street Bangalore

The food street has Chaat walas from Ajmer, where you can have Samosas, Kachoris, Phirni, badam milk and a besan based munch. It has the South Indian fast food joints which provide medu wadas, daal wadas. Some more dishes which are not very common. There are Rehris ( food carts) of various fruits like Jackfruit, Plam fruit ( I had it for the first time), watermelon, Kakri ( a kind of cucumber). A new street food that I discovered is the roasted corn with various fruits like raw mango, pineapple sprinkled with chaat masala. Of course, there were regular varieties of corn, roasted and steamed in various flavors.

Street Food Joints

There were carts making fresh dosas to order, frying pre-made paranthas. There are chaat shops serving Pani Pooris and various other Chaats like Bhel Puri, Dahi Poori, Pav Bhaji et al. There was a dessert shop where you can get ice-cream flavored with Gulkand – a new kind of fusion food. There were regular sweets like Ladoos and Gulab Jamuns, though I could not find my favorite Jalebis. There are juice shops serving all kinds of fresh juices. Between four of us we tried to try everything available on the street. And even by taking just bites of all these things and avoiding the regularly available things, we were full by the team we reached the end of the street.

Time

Apparently food street comes alive only in the evenings. When we reached around 7 PM, the street was virtually empty. By 8 PM it was bustling with people carrying a relaxed and satisfied look on their faces. You would find yourself among various aromas each of which would tend to pull you.

Street Food at Food Street is a must go place if you live in or visit Bangalore.
