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.
