I know comparisons are odious but the couple sitting at the next table in the restaurant we visited in Bangalore has prompted me to write about food once again . Chennai or Bangalore, the scene is familiar where you see families eating out more and more than before and also discussing food they tried at various joints. Over conversation with the couple I was surprised to learn they had traveled a long distance from where they lived just to have breakfast at this particular restaurant.
‘This is the only place in Bangalore which offers a good breakfast spread’, contended the elderly lady and her husband nodded in agreement. ‘Whereas in Chennai we have several outlets of Saravana Bhavan, she added and I thought her observation was absolutely right. Coming to think of it, I feel Bangaloreans have very little choice with no branches of reputed hotels spread through out the city unlike in Chennai where we can make a dash to the nearest outlet to where we live, thus saving on time and fuel in reaching the place.
