In This Tour:
• We begin our visit at the temple of Kaadu Malleswara, the patron deity of this neighbourhood.
• Accompanied by a knowledgeable foodie, we will then walk through the market, the main thoroughfare as well as tiny by-lanes, full of culinary delights which promise to fulfil every connoisseur’s appetite.
• As we walk through the market, we are surrounded by an array of shops selling fruits and vegetables, spice powders, coffee, papads, ghee, pickles and condiments, and the use as well as importance of each element as an ingredient of South Indian cuisine will be explained to you by your expert food-guide.
• While walking around and wafting in the aroma of the delicious foodstuff, we’ll stop at a couple of eateries to sample the offerings (snacks, both savoury and sweet). Look out for seasonal specialities and festival offerings.

TOUR NOTES: Please note, the food on the street is delicious but does not meet national or international hygiene standards. Although we only go to very popular places, with good local reputations, these stalls do not cook using bottled water or wash their utensils with it. So eating street food is always risky. If you prefer not to risk it, but still want to see what it’s all about, then at the end of the walk, we can take you to Haldirams where you can try chaats and other popular dishes in safe and hygienic conditions.
