Best eat outs of 2010!- a visual treat for you!

When Smitha asked me to participate in her event I could not think of anything better than this post. While in Bengaluru for the winter vacation we visited some really nice restaurants as I love to experiment different cuisines:)
This Picture is an authentic Rajasthani thali with poris, rotis, many varieties of subzis, dals, kadhi, rice, kichidi/ghee, papad, samosa, dahi vada, desserts like hot malpua, dal poli, fruit salad and at last sweet pan!!

The speciality about this thali was that they were of unlimited serving. You can ask for more :)

Before and after food we can wash our hands in warm water this way...

This thali is my entry to the event "Best food I have eaten and blogged about" by Smitha

Can you guess what this is??


It is Idly steamed in banana leaf. When we ordered Idly for my little one we were given this soft spongy idly fully packed in the banana leaf!!


Northern Karnataka meals served with Jonna rotti(Jowar roti) at Kamat on the way to Mysore
Men serving food in Traditional Indian khadi clothes..
Bananas, onions, garlics, pumpkins, hanging ....
Fresh hot potato chips being fried...
Who is not familiar with MTR. We ordered masala dosa...
and my favorite Sambar vada:)

It is very difficult to choose one food as favorite. I am a big fan of chinese too. Noodles and Manchurian, I can eat it anytime!!



The following pictures are of a wedding we attended in the North India. This plate is just one porting of my food. There were more than 500 items served in the wedding. There were stalls of India street food like chat, dosas etc and almost all types of north Indian food, Chinese, kid friendly food like steamed corn, icecreams fruit salad, juices too


It was winter and we were served hot milk garnished with pista..
He was making some hot milk for me....
Ya kulfi in the freaking cold winter....
Hot Jelabis with milk is a great combi.....
Hot masala chai being served in small terracota pots... I had plenty....
These were Pan leaves which can be designed as you wish..
Thses are the items which are into the pan leaves ..... ya these many!!!
Hope you all enjoyed the pics......

OMG !!! YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY.... Love this post..... absolutely gorgeous ! :)

Thanks so much for sharing the delicious food pictures :)

May I ask a question ? What restaurant was that in Benguluru that served the Rajathani Thali ??? Next time in India if I go to Bangalore I would make it a point to visit this place.

Thanks again !

Pavani said...

Wow.. That WAS really a mouthwatering visual feast. Each one better than the other.. I'm still amazed with 500 items at the wedding. Man.. how much can one person eat at a wedding, much less 500 items. wowww.

Sharmi said...

Hi Sharmi,

Thanks so much for letting me know :)

I have had a plethora of issues with my blog and fixing it took a back seat.. Hopefully I will get it fixed and let you know.

This must be a new retaurant. I am not sure if it was there before.

Thanks a lot ! Added to the list of places to be visited. :)
