Tenzin Kitchen- Every College Student’s Best Kept Secret
As a college student studying at Christ University, I’ve had plenty of pleasant memories in Tenzin Kitchen. A few years back it had a rustic wooden shack-like ambience. Almost transporting you to a humble mountain cottage in the Himalayan region. The Tibetan restaurant has now undergone a vibrant makeover. Fresh bright yellow paint adorns the walls, and Tibetan artwork and photographs hung on the walls accentuate the ambience.
Humble Tibetan Eatery That Serves Dishes Starting From Just ₹50
When you visit Tenzin Kitchen, be prepared to wait for a wee bit. It’s a small eatery with less than ten tables. However, the quick service ensures you wouldn’t have to wait long. The expansive menu while celebrating Tibetan cuisine also serves Indo-Chinese, Japanese and even Bhutanese delicacies. Tenzin Kitchen is truly a heaven for those who’re broke or on a tight budget. Generous portions of soul-nourishing food starting from just ₹50 await you here.
Soul-Nourishing Thukpa & Laphing
At Tenzin Kitchen, it’s a no-brainer to order a delicious bowl of thukpa. Here’s a pro-tip. They serve massive portions of thukpa that would suffice two diners. So, we suggest you order one by two portions of thukpa that start from just ₹100. The hand-pulled noodle soup with perfectly balanced spices, soothing flavours and fresh veggies will perfectly compliment Bangalore’s chilly weather. Don’t forget to order authentic Tibetan Laphing costing ₹50. It’s a spicy cold mung bean noodle dish that’s a good cold appetizer. Warning- it’s spicy.
