Handmade Pasta to Banana Leaf Biryani: 10 Best Home Kitchens in Bengaluru to Order From

Be it a Sunday when you’re looking for a place that serves the best brunches or a mundane weekday when you’re looking to have your cuppa with some snacks. Be it a regular work week or the advent of the festive season, you probably love to gorge on specialities.

Whatever your mood or occasion, there’s little doubt that you will find what you’re looking for in Bengaluru’s lanes. 

Anyone who’s lived in the city long enough will swear that the food is an unmissable aspect of their stay. Yes, the swanky restaurants with their bite-sized portions are heaven on a plate, but a bowl of good ol’ curry is like the city embracing you in a tight hug. 

Home kitchens of Bengaluru have taken the culinary scene in the city by storm and we are loving it. Here are a few you absolutely won’t regret trying out.
