“A man who has no knowledge of his past history, origin and culture is like tree without its roots.”
– R.K. Narayan
Food is important component of Bangalore’s rich culture. And the city is blessed with restaurants which offer different cuisines. One such gem is ‘Malgudi Vattika’ right on Mysore Road near Wonderla. Malgudi Vattika as the name suggests is created keeping the Malgudi Days in mind. There are portraits and quotes of R.K. Narayan all over. It is a place where you can get mesmerized in the nature and the display of antics. The entire ambience is created to take you back in time to days of yore. From antique furniture, old telephone machines, gramophones, wooden fan-shaped menu to copper utensils and carafe, everything is vintage about this place. The whole property is decorated with lantern like light posts which add romantic essence to the evenings. food menu provides a good range of traditional South-Indian cuisine. For North Indian food lovers, the menu has quite a few items from the North.
Overall, a great place to evoke childhood memories and rejoice in some tasty North Karnataka cuisine. I am sure foodies of Bangalore will love this unique restaurant for its rustic charm and traditional food. Ghumrs can read Zomato reviews here.
