A major chunk of Bangalore is showing increasing interest in barbecue food. What it includes is the main item of your platter is roasted or grilled till soft and tender in fire. Along with this, additions of sauces and salads make it a good meal in a day. One must agree to the fact that barbecue foods are completely safe for the body and is a good intake over the junk.

Thus the BYT team brings in a fresh chart of the best 5 barbecue hangouts that you can’t afford to miss once in Bangalore. Have a look:

The Terrace – Tandoor & Grill – Fortune Park JP Celestial
The restaurant emerged along the green grass spread of the Race Course as a north Indian food joint. Over time, now it’s a popular choice for roasts and grills. They provide ample options in veg and non-veg and hence, it’s gluing more people. Surroundings and services are simple compared to the exotic palates they serve on table.

Punjab Grill
If you know the Forum Mall of Kormangala, then you surely have noticed this place. It’s right diagonally opposite. Here the food has gathered crowds for their overdose of Indianism in the food. Spices, aroma and taste of what they serve in table really represent Indian cuisine. They serve hot and fresh and hence, on your visit getting it overcrowded is a common issue. Better reserve a table before you bounce.

If you take a few walks around Kormangala in a weekend you will find several groups of men and women searching for good restaurants. It’s not that there is lack of good food in this area, its just the options are too much. Here, this one is another food joint that is a tough peer when it comes to barbecue food.

Oh! Calcutta
The hard core Kolkatans generally prefers an authentic Bengali meal or thali in case of special occasions. They don’t mind making efforts to decide palates individually from an extensive bengali menu. Of course they can do the whole affair at home or in the roadside Bengali food joints. But when it comes to treat the man who introduced you to the gallore of food, it must be classy and composed. Moreover Bengali fathers are very much critical about the Bengali cuisine. This is because over the years they have great knowledge and idea about their own culinary highlights. So to add splendor to his thought of Bengali food, this is the best of choice you can make.

Bangalore

The population and restaurant hike in the IT capital is almost going hand in hand.

Skyee Lounge
Whether new or old, the panoramic enchanting view of the entire city over the green lawn of the Chinnaswamy Stadium has always flattered hearts. Experience the same with your anna or father, next Sunday. You might feel this UB City restaurant is only meant for the super splashing weekend parties. But than the booze and the bar, they have a lot in the menu. Culinary delicates like Prawn Mince On Sugarcane Stick, Chicken Or Beef Shawarma, Peri Peri Basted Chicken Saslik With Blue Cheese Dip are worth shots here.
