On a Southern sojourn

There are times when you head out with your family for a casual dinner, without deciding on the food everyone would like to have. So if people want to have a mix of things, a good place to head to is ‘Rajathadri Food Fort’ in Jayanagar. Here, one can find a variety of South Indian snacks, Chinese and North Indian dishes. So everyone is bound to leave with a full and happy tummy.

The place has a food court where one can place their order and typically stand and eat. Additionally, there is a restaurant area with proper seating where families come to have a relaxed meal.

The place also sees many rushing in to savour their Sunday breakfast, usually a spread of ‘dosa’, ‘idli’, ‘Kesari bath’ and piping hot filter coffee.

For those who like their ‘dosa’ nice and crisp, they have the ‘Paper plain dosa’ and ‘Paper masala dosa’. The other dishes in this section include ‘Chow chow bath’, ‘Khara bath’, ‘Shavige bath’ and ‘Bajji pakoda’ among others.

In the Chinese menu, there are items like ‘Gobi manchurian’, ‘Mushroom manchurian’, ‘Paneer chilli’ and ‘Paneer 65’. To accompany them are fried rice and noodles. The portions are good and filling.

However, if you don’t want to order anything from the above two categories or they only qualify as starters for you, then there is the North Indian section to take your pick from.

Besides the usual curries, they have ‘paneer’ dishes like ‘Paneer butter masala’, ‘Kadai paneer’ and ‘Paneer kofta’ that are worth trying.

For curries, there’s ‘Veg kolhapuri’, ‘Veg makhanawala’, ‘Navratan korma’ and some others that you can choose from.  The ‘paneer’ dishes and curries go well with the ‘roti’, ‘naan’ and ‘kulcha’ available. The crisp and flaky ‘parota’ in the breads section also goes well with the curries.

They have grilled sandwiches and ‘pav bhaji’ and there is a small selection of ‘chaats’ on the menu as well. There is a range of fresh fruit juices and milkshakes to gulp down with your meal. And one is spoilt for choice when it comes to the ice creams and sundaes.

Go for the ‘Fresh lime juice’ or ‘Lime soda’ to wash down your meal. For those whose food is incomplete without a glass of buttermilk, there’s that too. ‘Vanilla’, ‘rose’ and ‘chocolate’ are some of the top choices in milkshakes. In the ice creams, there’s ‘Gud Bud’, ‘Honeymoon Special’, ‘My Dream’ and ‘Raja Rani’.

­Frequented by families and the younger crowd, the place has a number of good food options and one can certainly drop by here for a quick meal. ‘Rajathadri Food Fort’ is located at 19/49, near National College, 2nd Main, 31st Cross, 7th Block, Jayanagar. For details, call 26539798.
