Shopping at Brigade and MG Road

Traffic on Brigade Road, Bangalore, August 10, 2003 The cheapest and best food can be eaten at roadside carts. They are tasty, hygienic and really cheap. Travellers mustn't forget to go to Brigade Road and MG Road in the evenings for shopping. But they should also watch out for pickpockets and auto-rickshaw drivers who demand excess fare.
