Treat your palate to authentic South Indian flavors at Hotel BMS

Mangalore’s food scene is dominated by a rampant South Indian streak, but Hotel BMS, standing tall on the NH-17 highway, is radically different. The drive may take a while, but the food compensates for it, and what better way to start the Sunday than with home-style-breakfast while bringing together family and friends! We could devour all the waffles and pancakes in the world, yet it’s unmatched in comparison to buttery dosas, and crispy vada or fluffy idlis spruced up with coconut chutney.

At Hotel BMS, the menu spells out authentic vegetarian cuisine and prides itself in adhering to recipes that have been potential crowd-pleasers, yet immensely soul-satisfying. Because of its nutritive value, wholesomeness, and simplicity, South Indian cuisine is highly favored and rightly so. For instance, savor the Pakwan dal, a Sindhi dish comprising deliciously crusty Indian bread served with piping hot Chana dal, and you’ll know what we mean. Our recommendations also include Maddur vada(crisply fried patties served with a portion of green chutney), which is also eaten as a snack and mind you, it’s highly addictive so you can’t stop at one.

The unacquainted can induce themselves to a genuine taste of down South with a sensational plate of Mini podi idlis, freshly-blitzed with spices and Tava fried in ghee; each mouthful is a rollercoaster of flavors–all in perfect harmony.

However, the dish that lives up to its hype and some is the hot Mangalorean favorite: Semige. Smothered by banana milk and served with red chutney, there truly is nothing more delightful (and filling) than this electrifying mixture.

At the breakfast table, one gets to meet the management head Rahul Ballal who is always delighted to share his stories. On asking him details on the upcoming Chennai fest, he said “The Chennai fest is first-of-its-kind in Mangaluru. We hope to bring in the authentic dishes of Tamil Nadu. On the menu, we have Chettinadu dishes, varieties of Dosas and Idlis, unique rice items and sweets. It’s an attempt to bring flavors of Chennai to our people.”

All in all, Hotel BMS is warm and inviting, serving generous portions of fresh food and leaving you with a happy palate and a contented stomach.

    Just along the highway NH17 in Mangaluru, Hotel BMS stands tall. The current trend in the food world is to explore, invent and innovate and strike a chord with the changing pallette of every customer- BMS does just that.

    A glimpse at the menu and you’ll know that they’ve fused cuisines, cooking styles and methods to give you nothing but the best.

    Some dishes are served with a twist like the palak Dahi chat, butter fried podi Idli served with variety of chutney, jackfruit gatti, and an exhaustive list of dosas served with special chutney. It’s the ‘pizza on fire’s that caught my attention, tweaked with a peg of rum and set ablaze! Connoisseur s delight. Constantly innovating their dishes- BMS has a new menu to offer each time I go there.

    An exhaustive list of starters, they has panner tikkas in 7 flavours and also starters made with potato. Their mash potato is out of the world-wide the best I’ve had in this coastal belt.

    The regular south Indian thali is very different from the usual fare- their rasam and Dal see a sea change everyday ranging from the temple rasam, andhra style pappu, Tamil nadu style sambar to rasam made with pineapple- so good that the smell lingers on your fingers long after you’ve finished your meal. An interesting dish in the thali is the fancy chutney- raw mango chutney, brinjal gojju and bitter gourd chutney.
    A big fan of south Indian cuisine that I am, loved the semige (string hoppers) served with wide range of accompaniments and my favourite being – mango rasayana.

    The chef’s have taken to dishing out local delicacies like patrode, bamboo etc and given a twist and tinge of contemporary style. Courteous staff and excellent service is the winning stroke.
    The passionate owner or rather foodprenuer says with elan that no dish goes out of the kitchen without his personal supervision! Such diligence!

    With a casual dining ambience, BMS is perfect place to hang out with family or friends. Pure indulgence and a toast to glocal cuisine!
