I am sure all of us would have heard and will totally agree to this famous quote by George Bernard Shaw that "There is no sincerer love than the love of food" right? The love of food is a language that people from all across the world understand and it builds a common connect with people instantly. Food is something everybody loves to explore from the spicy, tangy chat from the road side chat wala to that delicately decorated food in big restaurants we all want to eat lovely food that can make out taste buds tingle.
For the love of food, me and my partner in crime - my wife travel to different parts of the city to explore various different kinds of food. We make it a point to try out new places and relish the best that every place can offer, be the awesome lemon tea around town or those crispy ghee filled dosas we are up for anything. So here are a few secret places that we have listed down that only Bangaloreans would know which you can also explore.

Sip on some awesome Suleimani tea, a crispy onion samosa, a few pieces of fresh and tasty Naan along with a few tea biscuits, while you are chatting along with friends. You can eat as much as you want and pay less than Rs.100. Isn't it price less literally!
