Halli Mane
The name means a village home and that's what it looks like. Mangalore tiled roofs and terracotta floors contribute to its rustic charm. Problem is, with the two level packed at most times -- with Malleshwaram mamis , the college set and office-goers -- you may not catch the details. Thali lunches are available as well as a smattering of Chinese, as in Manchurian. But what you should go to Halli Mane is for the kadubu , a sort of spiced up idli, with two chutneys and amazingly good akki and ragi rotis, cooked crisp while you wait.
