Veena Stores has been fulfilling its promise of serving hot, steamy and fluffy idlis to the people in Bangalore for decades. It’s absolutely a no frills, no-nonsense place where the food does the talking. At given times, the footpath adjacent comes alive, bustling with people balancing stainless steels plates. Most people visit for just a few things: the softest, fluffiest idlis you’ll find served with lovely pale green chutney – and to wash it down, a glass of strong filter coffee. They do not use onion and garlic. If you want a quick breakfast and don’t mind standing in a queue, then drop by this place.
Ever since it opened its doors to Malleswaram in 1971, Janata Hotel has been rewarded with staunch loyalists who will argue relentlessly about its merits. The hotel, in fact, remains the same as it was decades ago — right down to its traditionally clad waiters. They have an extremely simple menu including the dosas and vadas that proudly display just the right shade of crisp brown.
