There are spaces in Bangalore, a city increasingly defined by its traffic, that are still oasis of (relative) calm, and which exude an old world charm. One of these is the nearly 100-year-old Johnson Market, in Richmond Town, in central Bangalore. Unhurried’s Johnson Market Food Walk is a great way to acquaint yourself with this corner of the city. The food walk will provide an opportunity to visit and partake of the goodies at old family-run bakeries; sample some Iranian food, sheekh kababs, fanoos (rolls), and plum cakes and khajurs. Plus, besides the street food that is on offer, there is also the newer side of Johnson Market, with its cafes and restaurants. Also highly recommended by are the veg samosas at Makkah Tea shop, the sulaimani, and the biryani at Khazana. Head to unhurried.in for more information.
