Although popular for its seafood delicacies, Mangalore is also home to some of the oldest culinary institutions that serve up traditional vegetarian fare.

The Taj Mahal Veg Restaurant is one such establishment that is nearly a 100 years old. In this episode of Gourmet On The Road, Food Lovers’ Editor, Kripal Amanna enjoys Mangalorean breakfast classics at the restaurant, with dishes like the tuppa dosa, biscuit roti, kashi halwa and more!

He also interacts with co-owner, Vishnu Shenoy, discovering how the restaurant and the kitchen functions.

Crisp yet soft, slightly tart and loaded with the goodness of ghee! Delicious breakfast choice! Rs 40. 10/10

Subtle chilli hit. Not as spicy as the name suggest. Rs 20. 7/10

Deep fried wheat flour roti stuffed with coconut and spices. Best eaten with chutney. Rs 25. 8/10

Crisp on the outside and airy inside, with a hint of sweetness that complements the chutney. Rs 25. 9/10

Flavoured with ripe banana and fried! Great for a snack! Rs 25. 8/10

An over 90-year-old dessert made with wheat and pure ghee! Sticky, sweet and seriously addictive! Rs 25 per piece. 9/10

Intense caramel flavour and not overly sweet! A halwa you can go back to! Rs 25 per piece. 9/10

Strong like a filter coffee should be with a nice roast on the beans! Rs 27. 10/10

Crumbly texture and perfectly sweet! Comfort snack! Rs 280 per kilo. 10/10

Won’t be able to tell that this dessert is made with a vegetable! Delicious! Rs 30. 10/10

I like the Mysore bonda dipped in mysore saambhar and a pinch of pudina chutney and still a pinch of tomato kaara chutney, The tuppa Dosa hearing for first time, I had experience in traveling in and around Karnataka and the one my favorite in breakfast is Mysore masala dosai, snack was Mysore bonda stuffed inside with potatoes green chili and Green peas, and for the lunch I prefer to have Mysore rasam and the famous bisi bhela bhuli the kind of saambhar saatham with all vegetables, which I know to prepare.

Pooja says:

Prasad Madapura says:

Nice presentation. Some notes : Goli bajji is known as Mangaluru bajji in Bengaluru but it's not very popular. Kashi halwa also available in Bengaluru but is not that popular. Most kannadiga marriages in Bengaluru or Mysuru have Kasi halwa for morning breakfast.
You have missed out an most popular eatery in Bengaluru ….the samrat restaurant of Hotel Chalukya. The Dosse n Rava idli was very popular once a time. Even now Badam halwa n the Lagu aahar …the light lunch as it is called is brilliant even today.

Dr. Nirmal Raj says:

Mangalore population is a mix of tulu, konkani, malayali and kannadiga

Prs Sharma says:

Healthy can be Goli baje ,buns etc when they are made with millets like jower etc.

Suresh Rao says:

We have grown up with Taj Magal hotel since childhood at different places in Mangalore… ultimate…

Mithun Kartha says:

The owner seems to have had his share of halwa…daily…

srikanth sinmoglar says:

The board in kannada and English OK but why in malayalam language

Santosh Kumar says:

Kripal annanige kannadanu barutte…. en saar, neevu kodanunavaraa?

Chetana A says:
