Overview

Death by Dosa is a food + history walk in the oldest neighbourhood of Bangalore, Chickpete.  

Everyone in Bengaluru swear by dosas and each has their own favourite joint. On this walk we’ll take you to what we believe are some of the finest dosa joints in town and they have stood the test of time. You will not only savour three different kinds of dosas but also get to explore chickpete through its narrow alleyways and learn about the history of the city.  

We will meet master saree weavers, visit the oldest antique shop in town, and learn more about Kempegowda’s grand vision for town planning while we belt some hot, hot masala dosas on the way. We’ll also explore a 150+ yrs old abandoned mansion that is so full of character. 

Whether you are a local or a visitor, our Death by Dosa walk is a great way to explore Bengaluru, with a dash of dosa and a dollop of history!

Itinerary

Chickpete is the perfect semblance of history memoirs draped in a hustle hub. We will walk through tiny alleys that power some of the major industries from jewellery to textiles and discover how street food is the binding factor for locals and tourists alike.

The Founder of Bangalore, Kempegowda, had a grand vision for the city. He played an important role in the rise of the commercial marketplaces of Bangalore, where food became a prominent part too. 

An iconic 150+ year old building, is nestled right in the middle of this central hub and has some great stories hidden right under your noses, which we will visit on our way to eat the dosas.

Whether you have lived in Bangalore all your life or you are new to the city, we would love to host you at our secret Dosa spots and explore the streets more. Do come with an appetite as you may want to cancel your lunch plans after this gastronomic affair in the bylanes of Chickpete.
