‘Good food is very often, even most often, simple food ’ Anthony Bourdain’s most famous quote sums up what to expect at Hotel Gurukripa popularly known as Bhat Hotel – simple and good vegetarian food from breakfast to lunch to evening bites to dinner.
Located in the industrial area of Peenya, Bhat’s Hotel is synonymous to home for patrons (from machine-shop guys to the VP Marketing, C-suite brass) who frequent this place for at-least 2 meals a day. The place is crowded throughout the day and yet somehow (call it experience or people management or quick service) it doesn’t take more than 5 minutes to find a table even during peak lunch-hour.
Jamoon with ice-cream and chopped bananas:
Hot jamoon and cold vanilla ice-cream with banana slices marinated in the vanilla-essence sugar solution of the jamoon – Trust-me you will finish at-least 2 of them (even on a full-stomach :P)
Pongal & Lemon Rice:
Pongal (combination of rice + dal + spices) and lemon rice dominate the lunch-orders (tastes delicious + served quick)
We never ordered this actually – but the owner insisted to try this one (their own ‘food symphony – Sangeeta‘ a tribute to the 7 musical notes encompassing 7 types of flavors from the ingredients) – this is the perfect snack to gorge on during that evening spell of rain with filter coffee.
Pineapple-chunks elevate the taste of this popular-south-Indian sweet – yumm!!
