When the world says “give up”, Hope whispers “try it one more time”. Shilpa, a homemaker turned entrepreneur, successfully running one of the renowned mobile eateries in mangaluru – ‘Halli Mane Rotties’ along with her brother Chiranjeevi, is an inspiration not only to women but every single person. Their rotties here are to die for, along with the idlis, the aromatic spice of the chicken, which a Mangalorian is unfamiliar about. The halli stlyle donne biryani, ragi mudde, Bisi belle bath are some of the items that aren’t your everyday classy, well presented or styled to look modern kind of dishes, that we get in fast moving cities, they made me appreciate food for its simplicity and the modest taste of Kannadigas. Which is definitely the proudest thing to say.
A Must needed Pit stop at Fish Garage, to all Mangalorean Seafood Cravers.
A foodie shall always remain a foodie no matter he is a scientist, a business man, a doctor or even a software engineer. The foodie ghost shall haunt him/her for eternity. Sanjay Poojary, Vignesh Kini, Sachin P.R.,Hemanth Karkera and Shishir Samani are few among such living examples that you can find in our very own Mangalore. Employed at Thompson Reuters, Mangaluru, these software engineers always had a soft corner for food in their hearts and of course in their tummies. Working for their living during the day and living their passion in the evening led to the birth of ‘Fish Garage’.
When it comes to seafood, mangalore has a very distint unique taste in its food culture, showing our diverse and strong communities who have blended together to make this cuisine rich. And yes, every Mangalorean loves this fact, and can go absolutely nuts for Mangalorean seafood cuisine and culture– well the most popular choice for such a restaurant was Machali.
I love biryani’s and am sure almost everybody else in Mangalore does too, I can’t recollect my first biryani experience but at the most I can remember the biryani at Pereira’s when I was a little kid, am sure if you have lived long enough in Mangalore you must know Pereira’s. Just an experiment why don’t you guys try remembering your first biryani experience, give it some thought and you might just remember it. If not you must have had a memory span of a gold fish.
-The best of Street food in Mangalore
First thing that comes to my mind about street food is that it’s spicy, affordable, lively and packed street ambience, well if it’s lively at least. When it comes to street food there are very few places in Mangalore that does it right, well I don’t want to say Appu shets is one of them unless you go and try it yourself.
