A food trip to Mosque Road in Bangalore

During this month of the Islamic calendar, the entire area of Mosque Road becomes a foodie’s paradise. Me and two of my colleagues, Mainak and Rueben, made a trip to sample the food.

Even Empire had setup an extension in front of their restaurant to serve the crowd.

Some of the shops are over crowded. As Rueben pointed out, we only went to shops with a substantial crowd. They must be good that's why there is a crowd.

Here is a list of stuff we ate –

  • Minced mutton seekh kebab
  • Chicken kebab Malai Chicken tikka
  • Patthar Beef (Meat roasted on a heated granite slab) with Idiyappam.
  • Crab roll
  • Mutton Haleem
  • Phirni

P.S. The phirni was very good. I am having one right now as I compose this blog post.

P.P.S. This entire trip was made possible because of two free Uber rides – one sponsored by Rueben and the other by Mainak.

    It was malai chicken tikka and we had mutton kebab from 2 different shops. The haleem was not upto the mark considering the fact that it was from PISTA HOUSE!!!!

    • Sauvik Biswas

      The chicken item’s name has been duly corrected.

    And for those worried about hygiene, well it’s been 48 hours since we ate and none of us has called in sick 🙂
