Month end, right? It is tough anywhere, but, in Bangalore especially, when the weather is beautiful, and you always feel hungry, it’s just brutal. So, where do you go and what do you eat in Bangalore, when all you have is 200 bucks in your broke ass wallet? Here is a cheat sheet for your Bangalore feast under 200 bucks. You can thank us later!

Kota Kachori, Koramangala

No pocket-friendly Bangalore food list can start without mentioning Kota Kachori first. It is a Jain breakfast joint, in the foodie haven of Koramangala. But, know what? I can have kachori’s for lunch, and dinner too! Hell, wake me up in the middle of the night with a bowl of Kachori from this joint, and I will gobble it down without breaking a sweat. 

Here’s what you must eat:

Alu Peyaz KachoriINR 30
Kota KachoriINR 20
Mini Ghevar Malai (for Dessert)INR 60
Makkhaniya Lassi (to wash it all down)INR 40
Total DamageINR 150

In case you are in mood for something more mainstream for your lunch, or dinner, you could also order their Thalis. The Premium Thali costs INR 180, and my favorite Jaipuri Thali is only INR 100. Yup, just find your way to Koramangala now.

Let’s say you want something a little more exotic. How about a Bao? To the uninitiated, a Bao is an oriental sandwich, made of super soft, mildly sweet, steamed bread. At Kylie’s, you can have a plate of two, decent sized Baos, for peanuts.

Here’s what you must eat:

Teriyaki Chicken BaoINR 160
Ginger Soda Spritzers (to wash it down with)INR 40
Total DamageINR 200

There are a host of other filling options – fish, lamb, paneer, chicken, and pork. The most famous, apart from the Teriyaki, are the Char Siu Pork Bao, the Hickory Smoked Chicken Bao, and the Patatas Bravas (Veg). There is a lovely Banana Caramel dessert, if you have a few extra bucks to spare. 

Nellai Aappakadai, Koramangala

Back in Koramangala, the broke foodie’s paradise. This time, we are in a Chettinad joint, lusting for their Appams. Just remember, Chettinad food is spicy. So, choose wisely.
