    In Bangalore? This is one occasion the Lonely Planet is right in a big way. Go to Mavalli for lunch, or anytime, and prepare to wait 30min. and then be treated to numerous delicious foods that seem to never end. You will walk out with an incredibly unique experience and you Will be incredibly full; with a smile on your face.

    A must eat for any traveler in Karnataka.

    Favorite Dish: Every dish is a delight.

    Mavalli Tiffin Room: Quintessential Bangalore Eat Out!

    SOME THINGS, thankfully, never change. And it should not change, like the Mavalli Tiffin Rooms that dishes up staple South Indian breakfast/ tiffin to thousands of people every day.Truly as a Bangalorean most of us feel that if you haven't had food here then you haven't been to Bangalore. Luxury of yesteryears and tradition in today's is what is MTR!

    Mavalli Tiffin Rooms, a 'pure' vegetarian cuisine, more popularly called as MTR has been the pride of Bangalore and more so for the southerners for over 83 years now. Situated on Lalbagh Road, and very close to the Lalbagh gardens, the doors of this small vegetarian restaurant always opens for serpentine queues of joggers, walkers and the regulars waiting for their breakfast of mouth watering delicious Idli's, Dosas, Uppittu and Kesari Baath and hot piping coffee. Though till date I do not understand why they would want to exercise and then indulge in this sinfully ghee filled food! :D

    Not to be missed! However do not expect a great ambience, just go for the great food. It is a run down restaurant, but the that is part of the experience. And do expect to wait a bit for a seat and service.

    Favorite Dish: All south Indian dishes

    This is a great place to try local food. Waiters will repetitively put more and more south-indiain dishes on your tali (plate) - I loved it!
