5 Breakfast Ride Getaways from Bangalore

With the growing number of folks getting hooked to motorcycling & cycling, motorcycle/bicycle ride for breakfast  over the weekend has become ‘The Weekend Thing to do’ than laze around or meet up for a brunch in the city.

For me, the perfect ride has always been the one that ends with good food!! Presenting the 5 best South-Indian breakfast getaways from my beloved city.

  9. Hi Ajay,

    Today I tried out food at Pavithra idli hotel, Tumkur road. Just as you suggested the must eat food to try here, I had thatte idli with butter, vada , mini butter masala dosa. Tasted authentic!! And I enjoyed the filter coffee till last sip. Thanks for the suggestion. I will try other places soon.

  10. Now a days thatta idlly is made on a plastic sheet, which should never be eaten. When plastic is heated, heat is a catalyst to produces many carcinogen, which are cancer causing agents. They used to use white cotton material before… I’ve stopped eating thatte idles,may be we need to educate the hotel guys that what they are doing is wrong.
