Eateries near the stadium

The stadium is very close to MG Road so do not miss the opportunity to walk alongside it. Try the biryani at Nagarjuna on Residency Road and the Chinese food at Little China on Church Street.

Must have masala dosa

Try masala dosa (rice pancakes with potato stuffing) and have coffee anywhere in the city. The better hotels are in Jayanagar. Also go to Pecos for beer with some amazing chicken tikka and good music.

Filter coffee

A server pours out coffee at the India Coffee House, Bangalore, May 16, 2008 When ordering coffee at a restaurant, especially in south Indian fast-food restaurants, ask specifically for filter coffee - it is made by mixing milk with a concentrated decoction of roasted coffee powder and water. The instant-powder coffee which you get in most places is a sorry sight (and taste) for any coffee lover, being horribly milky and sweet. But filter coffee is excellent. You may even want to buy some when you leave.
