Festivities in a rural ambience

While Ugadi marks the New Year for some, for others it is that day when you can indulge in the special food prepared on this auspicious day.

 Hallimane in Malleswaram has become a destination for those who prefer to savour the best of rural cuisine in a rural setting.     Festivals like Ugadi are celebrated with much fanfare here. It serves festival-related cuisines to give its customers the experiences of a grand festivity.

 “The day begins by consuming a specific mixture of neem buds/flowers for bitterness, raw mango for tang, tamarind juice for sourness, green chili/pepper for heat, jaggery for sweetness and a pinch of salt. This mixture with all six tastes is called ‘bevu-bella’. Hallimane’s Ugadi menu too offers six different tastes in their foods and welcomes this year’s Ugadi in a grand manner,” says Babu Rao, Manager.

Their menu consists of 30 delicious varieties from popular sweets like ‘holige’ and ‘kajjaya’ to a traditional meal served in plantain banana leaf. The restaurant will offer a lavish meal including ‘happala’, ‘majjige menasu’, two varieties of ‘payasa’, ‘kosambari’, ‘shuntipanaka’, ‘neerdosa’, ‘tovve’, varieties of chutney, ‘uppinakai’ and more delicious dishes, making it a complete ‘Habbada Oota’. 
The waiters are dressed in traditional attire, the white panchai.During the festival, popular names from all fields drop in here to take a bite or two. Babu, says, “We don’t really know when a guest would visit the restaurant. Sometimes it will be a surprise when a celebrity just drops by and sometimes we are informed before hand and we make arrangements. This has been the tradition with all the festivals.”

The feast will be on from 12.30 pm to 3.30 pm and evening from 7.30 pm to 10.30pm.
Hallimane is located in 3rd Cross, Sampige Road, Malleswaram.
