The Best Grilled Sandwiches in Bangalore (Tasty and Pocket Friendly)

If you are on a hunt to eat the best grilled Sandwiches in Bangalore with pocket friendly prices, I have only 2 places to suggest (for now).

Both these brands are quite famous and has many branches across Bangalore and, they are not just pocket friendly but also serve sandwiches best in town. 

The Best Grilled Sandwiches in Bangalore – Juice Junction

I work from Co-work space in Bannerghatta main road, and I would love to have some real good food joint choices in the vicinity for an easy access. It’s not that I am very particular of the distance, once myself and Rajesh traveled 50 min in Bike to taste the Instagram famous breakfast combo in Bangalore. 

Thankfully, this food joint is 1 km ride from our co-work space, one of the best grilled sandwiches in Bangalore I would say.

Location –

We normally would go here to eat sandwiches on our working weekends for a mid morning snack or evening snack. They also serve fruit juices, Lassies, Ragi malt (another best seller), Maggie Noodles, Chaat items, and hot beverages.

Most noteworthy of this place is they have all in one place.

Mostly, we love this street food joint for their sandwiches, one of our all time favourite is Aloo cheese sandwich. With the right amount of mint chutney spread and mayo, it literally melts in the mouth.

To go with this good sized brown bread sandwich, I order to drink Avocado juice and he orders Watermelon, always. 🙂

We almost never had their Maggie noodles or chaat items and hot beverages. Once I had their coffee and it was not bad at all.

Speaking of Maggie noodles, one very item I find it hard to give up for the sake of my good health. I am trying my best these days to avoid it. My co-work cafeteria serves one of the best noodles along with many other best sellers.

But anytime, I prefer ‘juice junction’ only for sandwiches.

The Next Best – Hari Super Sandwiches

If you are looking for traditional home-made style sandwiches, I would suggest Hari Super Sandwiches.

We prefer to eat here for an evening snack whenever we are on a shopping spree to Jayanagar 4th Block Bangalore. Here we had almost all the varieties of sandwich, the best one is Hari Special Sandwich. And they are also famous for their unique style roasted groundnut salad and the masala coke (chat masala flavor added to the regular coke). 

When compared to the Juice Junction sandwiches, price is almost the same but the size is small for sharing. 

It is one of the most crowded places on all days.

While you are waiting for your order you could try the chaat stall nearby.

Seems like the entire building is jointly owned by one person. They have burger joint, chaat shop, and other shops named “Hari”. I would suggest to try once here to experience the unique and the best grilled sandwiches in Bangalore. 

Find the location –

Dont just stop there, just cross the road to experience one of the best lassi, a shop named “The Lassi Park“. It is famous for various flavours of Lassis, faloodas and what not. 

Both these joints are located in the hot location, surrounded by colleges and shopping streets near Jayanagar 4th block, and quite crowded at all times.

Good Coffee to Go with the Sandwiches in Jayanagar

Once we are done with savouring the sandwiches and lassi, we then prefer going to Hatti Kaapi shop in the late evening.

Hatti Kaapi, for the very famous Mysore style coffee served in this small shop with samosas. I am not a fan of samosas here, but any time we both would love to have this much flavoured coffee. 

It is located about 1 km distance from this sandwich shop in Jayanagar.

Find the location here –

Again they too have many branches across Bangalore, you could find them easily on the google maps.

Diagonally opposite to the Hatti Kaapi, is yet another famous and all time crowded food joint called, “Maiyas”. Since our all time preferance is Hatti Kaapi, we rarely prefer to go Maiyas restaurant.

If you are travelling to Mysore, this cafe serves the best coffee in town along with some really tasty brownies and sandwiches.

Sum Up – Not all “famous” shops are our favorites

We have been to many food joints in recent years either for work or for leisure. 

We would like to explore new places but only after reviewing them online, and always say big No to the places that serve the super sized monster burgers or chocolate sandwiches or cheese overloaded pizzas. 

If you want to eat the french toast, go to “the egg factory”, they too have many branches across the city.

We don’t prefer to eat burgers in any other food joints except our favourite burger joints McD and KFC. 

And for Pizza occasional indulgence in other favourite “Chavadi” restaurant in our area. We love all the items in the menu, and it is only go to place for Pizzas. You can see here for “Chavadi restaurant” pics and where else we love to eat regularly.

When it comes to street food, more is always less.

Here is one such place famous only for street food in Bangalore, where you can stuff your face all you want.

It will be a memorable experience only when we get sufficient quantity for the price. 

So, This juice junction scores all the points – chill out ambiance, cleanliness, many choices in sandwiches and juices, taste, quantity for the money, pocket friendly prices and what not. So, it is my number 1 suggestion for the best grilled sandwiches in Bangalore. 

Happy eating fellas :).

“Food Street” VV Puram (Must try Shop 2 in the List )

This is the our story of visiting Food street VV puram in Bangalore and stuffing our faces with all possible favourite street foods.

I usually don’t prefer eating any street food, usually I prepare my own snacks at home (shared couple of pics here). You know, I’m glad we went street food hunting on that day, because I gained life time experience.

Why we have decided to Visit Food Street VV Puram

It is Saturday, 06th of July 2019. We have decided to spend the Saturday at home as we have big plans for the next day.

We woke up late, after fixing a simple breakfast for us, we spent time lazing around at home, watching TV, arranging wardrobe and books in cupboard.

Weather is too good outside as we can see it is drizzling in our open garden in the noon itself.

When it is raining, when I am alone at home, sometimes I just gaze at the rain on my open garden sitting in the balcony with a cup of tea or coffee. When we are together, I immediately make pakoras with this ready mix bajji powder – which my hubby loves it any time in a day.

Or Masala Maggie, or Veg Momos whichever I feel like making, depends on the mood and availability of the resources

We then sit on the balcony, eat pakoras or bajjis savour it with fresh coconut chutney, followed by a hot cup of tea or coffee.

But today, we are in a mood to go out to eat some real flavorsome food, street food preferably.

Here are some mobile phone images of snacks made at my home. And you can see my garden pic too, will upload more pics in the future.

So, this is how we spent beautiful raining evening in nothing but eating in one of Bangalore’s famous food streets.

What We Ate in the Famous Food Street Bangalore

If you are wondering where to eat best street food in Bangalore, I would suggest VV Puram Thendi Beedi (Food Street) to stuff your faces and fulfill your cravings for the junkie. It was absolute bliss eating all our favourites at one place especially in the rainy evening in Bengaluru.

After around 35 mins of bike ride, thanks to less traffic on Saturday afternoon, we have reached 1 hr earlier than it normally would take.

As usual with the help of Google maps, we reached the destination given the address  “VB bakery, Sajjan Rao Circle, VV Puram, Bangalore”

We parked in front of VB bakery at the start of the food street, that is where the actual food street starts.

Since this is not shopping street, the streets are wide, enough place for the food lovers to stride up and down the street. All 2 and 4 Wheeler too can move freely in the street.

You could reach the other end of the street in under 30 sec, but one cannot eat all the foods in just one visit. If you are going with group of friends, then it is possible to try out all the famous dishes here in this colorful food street.

So we parked our vehicle, decided that we will come back to VB bakery for hot coffee or tea as a final touch just before leaving the food street.

Stop 1 – Chaat item, Masala Maggi and Potato Twister at Bangarapet Chat Express

Next to VB bakery, there is this organic sugar cane shop. Well we don’t want glass full of juice for a starter, nor it is a good idea to fill the tummy with water when we have planned for a feat. So, skipping the sugar cane juice shop, halted at the immediate next shop with the name board “Om Sri Vinayaga – Bangarapet Chat express”.

For Bangaloreans, the “Bangarapet chat” literally translates to “yummy, mouth-watering, delicious, scrumptious paani puri and chaat items”

Like any Chaat loving Indian would start, we too started with Masala Puri, followed by Veg masala Maggie, finished it with hot n spicy, mayonnaise sprinkled Potato twister.

The best quality food one can ask for (best quality in junk food, not guilty at all 🙂 )

We skipped eating pani puri, again for the same reason – we do not want to fill our appetite with any form of liquid food 😉

(Masala puri – 40/-, Masala maggie – 35/-, Potato twister – 60/-)

Stop 2 – Chilli Bajji, Paruppu Vada and Bonda at Shree Swami Bajji Centre

We then headed towards the other end of the street, looking for another colourful, appealing, delicious, heavenly savoury to fill the rest of the stomach and taste buds.

definitely, we were not interested in any of those chinese foods or big buffet of dosas or lemon seva. (Another famous south indian dish – spring hoppers fried with onions and chillies, flavoured with lemon juice).

We stopped at the display of variety of bajji and bonda in front of “Shree Swami Bajji Centre”.

It looked heavenly and appealing, one minute we were confused about which one to go far. 

We then bought my all time favourite Chilli bajji and his all time favourite Paruppu vada /daal vada and aloo bonda. (Total price 20/-)

Chilli bajji was decorated with lemon flavoured onions and chillies, paruppu vada was fresh and authentic. 
I was literally longing to eat tasty chilli bajji since the time I ate one in our Yercaud Bike trip.

Stop 3 – Soft Mini Idlies and Dosa

By the time we finished eating in the bajji shop it was almost 6pm. We then had idlis and plain dosa at Rajesh’s favourite shop, which opens only by 6pm. Didn’t know the shop name, it is immediately next the bajji centre I mentioned above. 

Thanks to the extremely soft mini idlis and Dosa with coconut chutney and Kara chutney –  we decided to call it a day.

But then – my hubby couldn’t resist the display of Lemon seva, since we barely even able to walk, we decided to take lemon seva home parcel.

Stop 4 – Honey cake and Mini samosa From VB bakery

What’s the point of going to food street without visiting the old, authentic, famous – the one only VB bakery known for many freshly baked foods.

So, we bought Honey cake and mini samosas –  fresh from the oven – take away for eating at home. 

They have a wide variety of rusks, samosas, puffs, different flavoured cakes, birthday cakes, plum cakes, pumpkin cakes, vanilla tea cakes, breads, buns, biscuits etc.,

Stop 5 – Coffee at Brahmin’s

There are no coffee, tea available in VB bakery, so we came out of Food street looking for any coffee shops.

We saw “Brahmins tiffin” neat to the Sajjan Rao circle, one can not miss before going to the food street. Also there is a hindu temple opposite to the restaurant, adjacent to the circle park. By this time, it has already started drizzling, we enjoyed our coffee enjoying the street view.

Sum Up – Best Street Food for Feast in Bangalore

We spent one and a half hours, only ordering and eating food in Food street a.k.a Thindi beedi in VV Puram, Bangalore.

We have had some experiences eating famous street food in MG road, Shivaji nagar and Koramangala, because those are our favourite places in bangalore for shopping and eating. Sadly no pics to share in my gallery. 

We are yet to explore other famous street food places in bangalore – Frazer town, Malleswaram, HSR layout, Vijay Nagar, etc.,

Our recent favourite hangouts for snack is Hari Super sandwich in jayanagar for Sandwiches and chaat, and for Non veg is newly opened Thalappakatti restaurant in HSR Layout, Bangalore.

Now, VV puram food street also added to our favourite eating out street food place.

Note: About the Food street Timing and Parking:

Food street was already busy with people by the time 5pm when we were there and we were lucky enough to get the 2-wheeler parking inside the food street. Food street started buzzing around 6pm, so there was visually no place to park as it was totally packed. Or you could park somewhere near Sajjan Rao circle and walk to the food street.
