  • started way back in 1943 okay started as a small students eatery

  • to south to the students who are studying nearby

  • this breakfast was legendary we wanted to sample a mix of typical south indian

  • breakfast items so we got a large puri with aloo which

  • is potato curry paired with a spicy chutney italy a

  • savory rice cake that was floating in sambar

  • vada a savory fried doughnut also accompanied by sambar and with two types

  • of semolina karabad which was spicy and kasaribad

  • which was sweet all right i'm so excited all the

  • breakfast items have arrived and i have to say already i think it's

  • worth the wait we waited for an hour i think it's worth the wait so we're

  • just gonna grab a piece of the puri oh my gosh that's one thing that we've

  • been having a lot on this channel yeah we've been eating a lot of puri

  • it's been delicious so i'm gonna put a little bit of the potato mash on here

  • and dip it into those i should dip it into the chutney as well

  • wow oh my gosh it's so good so tasty

  • it's a little bit spicier than i expected and is this where we get the

  • spice from yeah from the chutney so that's made

  • with coconut green chillies and coriander so this one has been soaking

  • in the sambal sauce so i've got i've got a lot of the sambal

  • don't get into the chutney oh that's going to be awesome

  • oh my gosh i've never had this so saturated before

  • it actually tastes more like sauce than anything else basically has a

  • sponge-like consistency it absorbs all those sauces any sauce

  • you throw at it it absorbs completely so moving on we

  • have the the batter and the neat thing about tavara it's

  • basically a crispy savory doughnut it's batter that's deep

  • fried and then you have it with the sambal

  • okay and so oh wow it's piping hot it's hot in the hands swimming in there

  • swimming in there what about the chutney

  • this is spicy or spicy okay

  • oh that's nice is it spicy for you a little bit but not as spicy as the

  • chutney the chinese number one okay and moving

  • on this is kind of the sweeter one yeah that's the sweeter version of

  • the same thing the same thing and it has a polenta like consistency

  • oh i really like the sweet one i have to admit i like the sweet one

  • because we've been having a lot of savory juices and i still have the dosa

  • tacoma whoa chutney oh my gosh look at that

  • chutney then it was time for the main event

  • dosas this dosa was thicker from other ones i've tried before and it reminded

  • me of a fluffy pancake it was very crispy and golden on the outside but

  • soft and spongy in the interior it was stuffed with a potato mash and there was

  • lots of chutney and sambar for dipping dip it in the chutney into the chutney

  • no wait there's more oh there's so there's there's a lot to do here into

  • the sambal

  • oh my god this is so good best dosa hands down ever i've never had anything

  • quite like this where it's actually on the outside

  • spongy in the middle absorbs the wonderful chutneys

  • of course you have that the spicy coconut one you have the sambal

  • that's a game changing though game changing are you gonna come back

  • yeah i'll stand in line again for an hour i do that

  • this is the typical filter coffee which you get famously in karnataka

  • so it comes in this sort of cup and a glass

  • so you pour it in here and then you drink it bit by bit so

  • you see how there's a lot of thoughts so they pour it back and forth to create

  • that frost you can cool it down in your cup little by little and then take a sip

  • that's how it works dude nice nice

  • oh this coffee is delicious it's like the best coffee in india i actually

  • haven't had any coffee in india so it has to be the best it's the best it's

  • better than chai we needed to walk off that massive south

  • indian breakfast so after that feast of a meal

  • we made our way to bangalore fork

  • so this is the bangalore fort it was built in like around the 1537

  • and it was built by kempe gowda who's the founder of bangalore so

  • initially it was built as a mud fort and now it's become stone they've made it

  • through stone later and only a small part of the fort

  • actually remains now this is the part that we're gonna go

  • explore today

  • today the fort's deli gate and the two bastions are all that really remains of

  • the fort so it is small but still very

  • interesting to visit

  • one of the great things about the fort is that it's a free attraction

  • typically when we've traveled through india and gone to visit major sites

  • we're usually looking at paying roughly 300 rupees or maybe more but

  • this one is absolutely free my favorite thing about the fort so far

  • is just how impressive the walls are and the doors it's like everywhere you

  • look there's something unique and different about this place it's been a

  • great experience so far and it hasn't been too

  • crowded either there's just a few people out here visiting

  • chai chai thai time before lunch but definitely definitely check out

  • these two attractions they're must visits and they're really close to each

  • other i mean they're five minute walk from each other and then you can get

  • some chai and then you can have some chai and you

  • got some more chai and then maybe lunch

  • we're getting hurricane water the best it's super refreshing

  • it is getting some kind of fiercely hot here in bangladesh

  • and what better way to cool off than with some sugar cane juice

  • freshly made right in front of us let's try that

  • naturally refreshing and actually really sweet too

  • like it's very sugary but man it's just what you need in the heat

  • helps you beat the heat basically we got some special directors

  • if you want to show thanks guys

  • so we're now entering deeper sultan's summer palace yeah it's a good example

  • of indo-islamic architecture and apparently it was built

  • in 1791 so that was a very long time ago let's go check it out

  • this palace was the summer residence of tipu sultan

  • and it's an impressive structure built entirely of teak and adorned with

  • pillars arches and balconies it's super close to

  • the fort and definitely worth visiting if you're traveling in bangalore

  • so

  • after all that sightseeing it was time for lunch we hopped in an uber and drove

  • to shivaji military hotel don't let the name fool you this is in

  • fact a restaurant and is best known for its biryani

  • okay so we've entered into the restaurant and it's packed as a saturday

  • it's a very popular place instead of waiting in a queue

  • you basically stand by a table that you think is going to be finishing soon

  • and then you jump in strategically so as soon as one person gets up

  • you attack the chair there's no time not a second to waste yeah so do what

  • he's doing

  • okay

  • all right so after waiting about 20-25 minutes we found a table

  • we pounced on it we were actually waiting at another table and they
