If you have met or talked to someone from Bangalore, chances are you know how much they love their weather. But apart from the weather, there is one thing they keep close to their heart. It is their food.
A Twitter user recently took to the platform to “share the knowledge” with the world. As he turned 32, he decided to compile a list of 32 South Indian dishes you should try in Bangalore.

He started the list with three must-try dishes from Sendhoor Coffee, Koramangala. A place which promises the best Tamil Nadu style food. You need to try their Kothu Parotta, Pongal, and tea.

Next comes the Idli/Vada Sambar Dips from S.N Refreshments, JP Nagar.
While you are having the sambar dips, you also need to try the Idli Vada Chutney Dip and Masala Dosa from Bangalore Cafe, Jayanagar 2nd Block.
