Thindi Beedi, VV Puram
Thindi Beedi is one of the most popular food streets in Bangalore. It opens only in the evenings and serves some yum local snacks like Paddus, Curd Kodubale, Akki Roti and Avarekai (hyacinth beans). You won’t get this stuff anywhere else, except Thindi Beedi, which literally translates to ‘’eat street’’.
Your journey of finding the best street food in Bangalore is incomplete without a visit to this iconic pani puri stall. This place maintains extreme hygiene so you don’t have to worry about getting sick the next day. And their menu is not just limited to Puchkas, you can enjoy some hot dogs and burgers here too.
Loafers Lane, Vasanth Nagar
One of the top food streets in Bangalore and especially a favourite among students of Mount Carmel College. From Mexican Chaat to Bombay Sandwich to bite-sized cupcakes to trying new fillings at Puran Momos every day – this place has got everything a foodie wishes for. This place is heaven for both hard workers and lazy loafers.
Food Street, HSR Layout
Come on, it doesn’t get more obvious than this. This food street in Bangalore’s HSR Layout is the best spot for non-veg lovers. Prepare your tummy to hog on some grilled chicken, chicken fry and the special Donne biryani made with a secret masala. Even if that means not eating the previous day.
Eat Street, Koramangala
Koramangala is known for its amazing food joints and Eat Street is one of them. Come here for the chaats at Chaat Street, Malai Sandwich at DeliToons and for the best breakfast in Bangalore at The Breakfast Truck. This place also hosts live gigs and karaoke nights, something you won’t find at any other food street, we’re sure.
Sri Sairam’s Chats and Juice Centre, Malleshwaram
We simply can’t talk about street food in Bangalore and not include a good chaat place. It would be unfair not to talk about the unique varieties of chaat they serve here – chip chaat, disco chaat and of course the regular ones. And while you’re here, don’t forget to try out the special homemade chocolates that they source from Ooty.
Khan Saheb Grills and Rolls, Indiranagar
Khan Saheb Grills and Rolls have tons of options on their menu, for both vegetarians and meat lovers. The food here is so good, they now have ten different outlets around the city. The rolls are very filling so if you want to try out the entire menu, you’ll have to come here a few times a month.
Hari’s Super Sandwich, Basavanagudi
This place has five branches across Bangalore, so imagine how yum and popular their sandwiches are. They have both savoury and sweet options and some snacks like potato twisters. Try a couple of sandwiches from the menu and when you’re full, their chocolate sandwich will make sure you don’t miss out on dessert too.
Karnataka Bhel House Bhel Puri
This street food hub is located in Bazaar Street and has been serving customers since 1975. People crowd here to try out their dozens of chat varieties, and of course their signature dish, bhel. Karnataka’s version of bhel so good, you won’t even crave the Marathi version anymore.
Central Tiffin Room, Margosa Road
Central Tiffin Room is a popular name among the locals. They serve the most common South Indian snacks like Masala Dosa, Vadas and Kesari bath but no other place makes it as good as they do. Although they’ve now renamed Sri Sagar, they’re still better known by their earlier name. After all, it’s not just a name, it’s a brand.
Chatar Patar, Banashankari
Chatar Patar has some amazing bhel and chaat options on their menu. For the diet-conscious, they also have some healthy options like Sabudana Khichdi. If you’re feeling bold and adventurous, try their signature Gapagap, which is pani puri with a blackcurrant filling. Sounds weird, we know.
Fanoos, Fraser Town
This eatery aces Shawarmas and Seekh Kebabs, and how. Over the years, the crowds here have only gotten bigger and they have had to expand from a little stall to a large setting. Come here for a Fun-oos experience with your friends.
Spicy Corner, Jeevanbheema Nagar
Did you say Desi Chinese? Cuz we heard you. Spicy Corner is all about the desi, the Chinese and of course, the chilli. We recommend the cult-favourite Gobhi Chilli, which both you and your taste buds will remember for a long time.
Al Amanah Café, Kammanahalli
This place specialises in jumbo rolls that will fill you up for an entire day. You might not get a place to sit here but the rolls are worth the standing. We don’t know about you, but our evening snack-cum-dinner is sorted.
Dadar Vada Pav, Indiranagar
If you want to experience Mumbai’s favourite street food in Bangalore, look no further. They have the regular version and some experimental ones like paneer and Schezwan Vada Pav. Every item is super affordable and is served with a side of fries. Dadar’s Vada Pav, right here in Indiranagar.
Mosque Road, Fraser Town
Mosque Road is one of the topmost food streets in Bangalore and is known for its mouthwatering non-veg dishes. Do try the Mutton Keema, Seekh Kebab, Haleem and Biryani here. Don’t miss out on the different types of desserts too.
Chettys Corner, Kumara Park West
If you like mixing things up, this place will be your jam. This place was the first to introduce Twistato (twisted potato) to the foodies of Bangalore. Not just that, their popular beverage Masala Coke and other experimental dishes are the perfect examples of “East meets West”.
BBQ Ride, Whitefield
BBQ Ride was started by two brothers who love food so much, they decided to travel with it. They offer a live barbecue and grilling service on a bike parked in different locations of the city. And they’re no less than a proper restaurant – their seafood, barbecued pineapple wedges and hot dogs are proof enough.
Veena Stores, Malleshwaram
If you want to taste some regional food in Bangalore, head over to Veena Stores. Here, you can try some of the best Bisibele bath, idli vada, Khara bath and lots more. It looks like just another departmental store, but trust us when we say it’s much more than that.
Brahmins Coffee Bar, Basavangudi
This place doesn’t have an elaborate menu, but what they have is more than enough for the regulars. Simple but fresh Idlis and crispy Vadas are a hit here. Caffeine lovers, here’s your cue to try out their amazing filter coffee.
