Buffet Menu on Tuesdays showcases Karnataka food at Howard Johnson Bengaluru Hebbal.
The American brand hotel wants to bring in local flavour in a big way. ‘Namma HoJo’ is what the hotel calls the Tuesday buffet at Nest, its all-day-dining restaurant.

A live dosa counter is where one can have freshly made ragi dosas, benne dosa and Mysuru masala dosa with piping hot sambhar and a variety of chutneys.
Starters are masala vada, aloo bonda or maddur vade.
Lunch is Karnataka’s speciality bisi bele bath, chitranna and mosaru anna. Ragi mudde with soppy saaru and chicken or mutton ghee roast is also served.
