115, 100 Feet Ring Road, Banashankari, Bangalore.
Every time I traveled on the Banashankari 100 feet ring road, I saw a huge crowd of people at one place. The building looked like a typical guest house in the Western Ghats. It was so crowded that I had to pay attention. ‘Taaza tindi’ the board read. My sister always told me how good the breakfast was at the jayanagar branch. So, one Sunday morning I headed towards this place.
Needless to say, it was packed with all kinds of people – old men in their pajamas, mid aged men in their track suits straight from their jogging, young boys with their cricket bats landing directly from the stadium and aunties with wailing babies. If you called a random number from one to hundred, someone of that age would have certainly raised their hands. We somehow found the parking space, and made our way to the counter.
The service is very swift because they can’t manage the crowd in any other way. You go pay for your order, get coupons and take it to the serving counter. There are distinguished counters for each food item to make it less confusing. Once you give the coupon, they will give you your breakfast in less than a minute. The menu is limited. You get most of the important south Indian breakfast items. We ordered masala dosa, vada and idli. My jaw dropped when I saw the rates. How can they charge so less? I started to doubt the quality of the food.
Turns out, I was wrong. The taste of each breakfast item was mind-blowing. In fact, it was better than what most of those old, so called famous hotels serve you. They used ghee for the Dosa. That is when I fell in love with this place. I have special regard to places that use pure ghee and butter instead of oil. These are the people who are concerned about giving quality than to make money.
Taaza tindi is a clean place even though it is always filled with people. Hats off to the staff for introducing the concept of cleanliness in service, food and place. Most of the breakfast places struggle to keep their kitchen and dining space clean. They should take some lessons from this hotel.
I give this place a 4.5 for food, service, ambience and everything that counts. A must visit if you want to enjoy a good breakfast when you are in a hurry.
