Walking down Seppings Road, Bangalore

At about 3:45pm, Tahir and I went looking for lunch. The initial plan was to go down to MG Road and eat somewhere there, but as we walked down St. John's Church road, I noticed a road that neither of us had ever been down. Turned onto Seppings road and decided to enter the first eating place we found.

The first one was Tea Corner, and we got in there and had tea (Tahir says it was brown milk). 2 glasses for Rs.5.

Moved on from there, and came across a large temple. I'm unable to pronounce the name, or remember the spelling, but it started with M and ended with amma. We entered a south indian restaurant soon after and had two plates Idli Vada - Rs.16.

Went on a bit more and got into Tea house. Had 2 glasses tea and some biscuits for Rs.8.

At this point Tahir was too full to eat anymore, although I could have stopped for pani puri or something else.

After that just walked down, taking random turns, and ended up near commercial street, from where we knew our way to MG Road.

in Tamil a temple is called Koil and the street perpendicular to the Seppings Road is called Dharmaraja Koil Street. The Taj hotel offers some of the best Biryani and Kababs there... if you walked a little into the Ahmed street there's a wonderful Biryani outlet in front of a Masjid... the chicken biryani is the best. On the paralell road there is a place that sells hot neer dose after 4 pm..and they are the best.

There are plenty eating places, small ones but good ones. Chat places, and idli dose, and biryanis and many local foods.

The temple is called Muthyalamma temple.

On St. Johns Road, if u happen to go towards Miller's Road, there are quite a few kabab's shops on the left side. The taste is heavenly :)
