It is highly impossible for anyone to not know about the brand Mavalli Tiffin Rooms (MTR) in namma Bengaluru (Bangalore), and it is from the time when the whites were busy ruling our country. MTR is such a famous restaurant which serves typical south Indian Tiffin. It also had lunch to offer which is damn heavy and heavenly. MTR are the ones who invented the famous yummy rava idlis during World War 2. I feel thrilled to know that there were many foodies in that era too. They have a range of masala’s and ready to eat foods that are popular even in foreign countries. This place is always crowded given any day. So fasten your seat belts foodies and get into this mesmerizing journey of food.
Points to remember:
1. This is located just a few steps away from Lalbagh which is a hot spot for health freak walkers. So all you hungry fitness freaks… walk into this joint once you finish your walk.
2. Have more strength and patience here as the queue here will be forever. There is a waiting room too
3. Make sure you equip your tummy for the jumbo lunch here; no diet-friendly food is available here.
4. Well, never mind about the old curtains or simple tables. They actually give you the nostalgic feeling of old times. Enjoy the food.
Breakfast menu and lunch menu fight for equal rights here in terms of taste and calories. Coming to the menu, masala dosas are the most in demand here and why not when they give you lip smacking chutney, sambar and the icing on the cake is the dripping ghee from dosa which makes it mouth watering. Coming to sweet Chandrahara is the sweet that was first invented here only and is famous in MTR but available only on Sundays (sad). The other delicious items in menu are idly, vada, badam halwa and many more.
Lunches are available only in one format here but guess what it has almost 20 varieties in same thali. I would like to mention few here, rest you should explore by yourself and it goes like this….. Juice (in a silver glass), payasam, poori and curry, bisibele bath (yummmyyyyyy) with raita, rice, sambar, rasam, ice cream & scoop etc.
I Wanna tell you a very important thing, don’t expect any of these above on Monday coz it’s closed on Mondays. So make sure you are here on any of other days and we can meet up there for a foodie conversation. See you there………
