Yummy Breakfast 👍

If you are in Malleswaram area and looking for breakfast, Veena Stores is the place to go. Hot idly abs and uddina vada is the top choice. Visit between 8 AM to 9 AM. I have been going to the place since 1989. Same quality since then. Of course they have increased the number of items on the... read more

Paradise for South Indians, especially for Idli lovers .. ! This is the best place to have Idli Vada. Idli soft and taste is awesome. You can also try out Bisibele Bath & Puliyogare. BTW you have to stand in a queue to get the food. Everytime there will be a big queue outside this place and it's completely worth... More

Yes! It can be called as "Bramhin's coffee bar" of north Bangalore. It's a small legendary store located in the beginning of Margosa road which offers pretty long menu. You can always find crowd in front of this store, people of all classes gather here in the name of taste and help themselves. After following a long que, I bought... More

I have been going to Veena Stores for past 20 odd years! Though its a road side shop...its one of the best places to eat 'Idli Wada' early in the morning! Amazing stuff, and their Chutney is so popular that they have a separate guy serving the Chutney.... Their Avalakki ( Poha or Flattened rice) and also their Puliogare (... More

Yes, believe it or not! I was thinking that a I am only one who go there for enjoying chutney with idli rather than the other way around which should be usual. But definitely there are many others in my side who think so. If you go there on week end morning, be prepared to face a bee-line for soft... More

Legendary South Indian food in Bangalore. Mazaa aa gaya! Eating melt-in-the mouth idlis at 7 in the morning never felt better! The idlis are possibly the best in town. They are beautifully fresh and fluffy and when washed down with the chutney, your taste buds are truly pampered. Every item on the menu (no dosas and sambhar available mind you)... More

Soft hot idli, hot & super crispy vada, mushy & creamy khara bhat, double-bean added delish Bisi Bele Bhaat with boondi topping, & kaara as-much-as-you-want chutney - over the years this is what I've eaten & loved about Veena Stores. Please be prepared to stand in a line to wait to order the food, there is no seating, there is... More

This is a shop. And the queues are on the footpath. They issue a token and you get food in dry compressed leaf plates with dollops of chutney. Extra helpings of chutney are free. Puliogare, idly, vada, etc form the list of what is served here. Filter coffee rounds up the experience.

Went for breakfast on Sunday morning. Had to stand in queue for a while but was worth the wait. Hot steaming idli were very soft and went along well with crispy vada. Puliogare rice and filter coffee were also good. Worth the wait. They don't serve sambar but unlimited coconut chutney.

Apparently this used to be a simple shop that put out Iddly's (South Indian rice cakes) for sale by a lady in 1977 and has not looked back since. I was stunned that there were 32 people in line ahead of me when I' arrived Sunday morning at 10 am. You order your food and stand on the street pavement... More
