Cool A Guide: Eating out in Mangalore/Udupi/Manipal

When you are in Mangalore and when the stomach grumbles, 99% of the Non-Vegies would say Fish. Yes no doubt, we get some amazing sea food here.
But then there are lot other stuff, other than Fish we get to meet our gastronomical needs.

And yes this thread is born for showing the BHPians what to eat and where to eat when in Mangala

My first pick is Narayana, a small-no-luxury hotel located in Bunder or State bank, serves one of the best fish fry.
This place serves Fish curry meals, a staple food for the locals here. The plate contains Boiled Rice, Fish curry(cocount based gravy with Sardine), one veg curry and pickle
And then you get to pick your fish fry. Anjal(King/Seer Fish) Fry being the most famous here. You also get Boothai(Sardine) and Bangude(Mackerel) fry and somedays there might be pomfret.
The fish is deep fried with some nice chilly paste.
You can wash down this meal with a nice spicy Buttermilk.

If you are a veggie, then this is not the place :(

OT : Me being a just-chicken eater, now a hard core fishetarian after being to this place.

Pssssst... Mangala folks please pour in about the places around here where one must go and musn't

Here are my two cents -

Manipal -
  • Blue waters (on weekdays. weekends you need to pay a cover charge). All the chicken items are pretty good. Liquor is a bit expensive
  • Cosmos - It's the coffee shop at the Valley View hotel. The tenderloin stake is highly recommended.
  • China Valley - reasonably priced chinese/thai/malay menu.
Udupi -
  • Diana - Good quality udupi veg cuisine
  • Woodlands hotel - the same as diana. But more crowded.
  • Udupi Residency - good choice of non veg/veg dishes
Kundapur -
  • Shetty Lunch Home - My personal favorite. The best chicken ghee roast I have ever had. There is a sister concern in Mangalore called 'Anupam'. But nothing beats the original.

Manipal :

Hot and Sour soup and Masala Dosa @ Shantala, just the thought makes my mouth water

There is a street vendor near the intersection that takes to the printing press, there the bajjis, vade's and other fried snacks are amazing. I still remember me and my room mates spending close to 100-200 Rs every evening when it used to rain.

Udupi :

Kamath Hotel for amazing hot jowar rotis, we used eat about 8-10 rotis each.

Those were best days study hard, party hard

In Udupi, we can add Mitra Samaj for their lipsmacking Masala Dosa's right

This is strictly a student joint and a pub, open only at night. Don't venture here with Family.

The waiters here act like English lords. The service takes ages, but I guess most patrons don't mind the delay. The do have some interesting items on the menu.

Regarding the rest...

Snack Shack: Good mixture of chinese/malay food. Best Ice-cream in the entire district.
Hangyo: Best Indian food in the town.
KMC Food court: A very ambient AC food court similar to transit in Forum mall. You can find Subway, Pizza Corner, Hangyo express, Noodle shop, Malay food, Udupi food, etc.

The above list completes the list of restaurants that serve tasty stuff in an hygenic way. Rest you can forget for various reasons. Most small restaurants are geared towards student crowd, whose needs are very different. And never ever venture near the CCD, people have had nightmares after that.
In Mangalore there is a restaurant called Guthu on Falnir road, about 1 Km further from Moti Mahal. My dad was very thrilled with their Mangalore taali.

Yes Samurai, Guthu is a good place, me a regular there . They have some authentic food on their Menu, esp Poondi, Kori Roti types which we don't get in all the places.

They also have a roof-top with a big screen, right place to watch IPL over a few liquids

I may add that Mitra Samaj (in the block near Srikrishna Temple) are the forefathers of the Udupi Restaurants all over the globe.

If you are in Mangalore, then don't forget to visit Pabba's Ice Cream Parlour in Lalbagh area. They have a huge variety of flavours.

And, as already mentioned in earlier posts, Diana is a nice place to visit in Udupi. Try out "Gadbad", an icecream originated at Diana in 1960s.

Udupi : Hotel Srirama & Lodge next to Ammunje petrol Pump also has a good Veg restaurant. Also ample parking space is available. The best food to have here is Shira and Poori Bhaji.

I had 'Gadbad' at Pabba;s (Mangalore), Diana, Woodlands (udupi) and at Hangyo Saiba (Manipal) . Hangyo's Gadbad was amazing! Had Vadapav just opposite that Restaurant which taste like one you get at Mumbai!
