Bangalore Nights: The final evening

Dakshin resturant Bangalore: a temple of lovely food

My last night in Bangalore and my dear friend Preetham took me to a memorable place the Dakshin restaurant in the Windsor Lodge hotel. This former Raj palace is set on a hill which overlooks many of the ministry buildings of the city

The dining room displays the Windsor's high colonial style to perfection. Elegant colonnades, fluted pillars, and brilliant chandeliers create the right setting. 

This part of India is rightly proud of cuisine. Preetham cherry-picked from cooked delicacies from across the southern states of Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. He explained each dish as it arrived, escorted by waiters dressed head to toe in white, as if sacristans at the high altar of southern Indian cuisine.

A blessed occasion.

Southern India:  a land of exciting cuisine
