We had done a post before on eating out in the city – Try these eating places in Delhi this weekend. But those were our suggestions. So we asked the people of Delhi what places they loved to eat at and below is a list of the same –
1. Not just Paranthas – You are gonna love this one. They have joints all over the cities and the paranthas are simply to die for. Go ahead, don’t think much, just go here and eat.
2. Old Delhi, Chandni Chowk, Paranthewali Gali – we don’t have to say any more
3. Khan Chachas – If you haven’t had the rolls here, you haven’t had the rolls here
4. Rajinder Dhaba, Greenpark – amazing curries, chilled out atmosphere, booze nearby, what more can a man ask for?
5. Cyber Hub, Gurgoan – all eating places under one roof

Bangalore, the Silicon Valley of India, attracts a large number of youngsters for better educational and career opportunities. Over 62% of this city’s population consists of migrants from all parts of the country. So if you are moving to this land of opportunities any time soon, then we suggest you keep in mind the following 7 things:
Unlike other South Indian cities, Bangalore has a cool and pleasant climate. It can even get chilly at times so we suggest that you pack full-sleeved garments as well as a few light sweaters and blankets along with your summer clothes. The climate gets a bit on the hot side during March and April only.
- Daily Commuting
You can commute via buses, hire an auto-rickshaw or book a cab online or get your own vehicle here. The city has a fleet of metro trains that currently run in a certain part of the city but the network is expanding soon. Bangalore roads can be quite congested especially during evenings so plan your trips in advance.
- Fear the landlord
Finding an accommodation in Bangalore can be quite a headache. You can get in touch with house brokers but that will cost you brokerage. We recommend you leverage social media and connect with people looking to offer their apartments on Facebook groups such as “Flats and Flatmates (Bangalore), “Put me in Touch with Bangalore”, etc. Landlords can get stuck on male/female company and late nights so do your research before moving into an apartment.
- Food for money
Bangalore, being a cosmopolitan city, offers a huge variety of food options to its denizens. There are umpteen number of cafes, restaurants and eating joints in all parts of the city serving local, regional and international cuisines.
- There is no Nightlife
Bangalore sleeps early which means that most markets and restaurants shut by 10 Pm. But then there are these places which stay open till late like the Empire restaurant in HSR Layout. It stays open till 2 Am.
- Shopping destinations
You can shop in the local markets of your colony or flock to any nearby shopping malls for a fitting shopping experience. We highly recommend shopping at Brigade Road market and Commercial Street.
- Weekend getaways
There are options galore for those in Bangalore looking for a weekend escape. From the traditional Mysore to the hilly Coorg, the secluded Gokarna to the delightful Chikmagalur, Bangalore spoils travelers for choice.
