Hotel Sri Satyanarayana Someshwara – Agumbe

There is a popular Danish phrase ” The road to a friend’s house is never long” – in our case it is “The road to a good food place is never long”.  So a bunch of us rode  all the way from Bangalore based on the mere mention from a friend about good food at the end of Agumbe ghat.

Enroute to Someshwar SH 65- Karnataka - between Shimoga & Thirthalli

Serene roads with great food at the end – perfect getaway 🙂

Located at the foothills of the Agumbe ghat amidst beautiful greenery and the gorgeous  Sita river – Hotel Sri Satyanarayana, a family run hotel started by Mr. Subraya Shenoy about 38 years has become a breakfast hot-spot  among travelers from Shimoga, Hebri & Kundapur.

Although this place is known for its Neer Dosa and Mangalore Buns (which were good for my palate ), it was Avalakki (flattened rice with masala) with curd and the Kadabu Idli with vada which did just justice to the 370kms ride from Bangalore 🙂

Highly Recommended:

Avalakki with curd – 22 INR /plate

  • Cash is the preferred – cards seldom work

Foothills of Agumbe Ghat – This place is big and the popular breakfast joint once you descend the Agumbe ghat – so there is no-way one can miss this.
