The major reason for north Bangalore’s rapid development is its proximity to Kempegowda International Airport and CBD. Some of the locales such as Hebbal, Sahakarnagar, Yelahanka, Jakkur and Kammanahalli are often spoken of by people across the city. Though major food and hospitality brands present here include Byg Brewsky, Druid Garden, Howard Johnson, McDonald, Swensen, Jus’ Trufs and more, the area still lacks in terms of a wider choice.
Eateries serving Veg Food
The vegetarian population in Bengaluru would be more than 50%, residing across all areas. Many non-vegetarians also prefer eating veg food on some days of the week. Residents of north Bangalore have very little choice and want to see many more come up. Some of the major brands like MTR, Kamat, SLV, Brahmins Café that have been doing very well across the city have not set food this side.
Fast Food & Desserts
Eating out has become a norm for people across the city. It has become a major trend that has led to many new eateries coming up. People prefer eating fast food and dessert as part of a quick meal. Some of the fast-food joints like KFC, Taco Bell, Chillis are yet to come up here. Brands in this space whose absence is majorly felt include Gelato, Polar Bear, Keventers, Thickshake and others.
Region Specific Food
Food enthusiasts have become very aware of cuisines from across the globe by watching television shows and its become part of drawing room conversations. Though there are multiple eateries across the city, the distance and maddening traffic discourages them to brave it to their fav food stations. It would be perfect if eateries serving popular cuisines such as Bengali, Andhra, Guajarati, Chinese and Mexican set up restaurants here.
Food @ Night
Many working professionals end up coming back home later at night. For them , having restaurants like Empire or Imperial serving food way past midnight might would be a very good option and avoids stopping over midway where safety becomes a problem.
Bangalore city has the maximum number of pubs and has earned the sobriquet of Pub City. But, North Bangalore has very few choices scattered across which again is like going for a drive after coming back home. It will be nice to see a TOIT, Brier Club, Beer Café and others brew up their varieties. Let’s say cheers to that!
In conclusion, fast-paced North Bangalore has seen growth over the years and deserves many new eateries to tickle the taste buds of residents here. Though the article lists a few popular brands, it will great to have many more new and exciting ones open shop in this part of the city.
