During the month of Ramadan, we are always in the mood to enjoy traditional cuisine which is usually served up in several street food joints across the city. Bengaluru has some world-renowned food streets which are brightly lit and burgeoning with people along the sidewalk to get a taste of the different varieties of meat items available.
We tend to partake in the glorious festivities on the street and we usually gravitate towards those stalls instead of fancy restaurants for the best in kebabs and rolls. But sometimes the taste buds needs an extra dose of flavour in the form of biryanis and Bengaluru is famous for some legendary places which serves up the best in this always satisfying dish.
