I visited Bangalore, (officially known as Bengaluru) last September. Known for its pleasant climate throughout the year, the city did impress me. Nuances created by the traffic aside, the city is calmer, greener and 'full of life.' For me the highlight of the trip was brunch at MTR (Mawali Tiffin Rooms). I had the best South Indian food ever. Period. Other than that, sipping coffee at the Forum Mall, while it rained outside was another cherished moment.
