The Mavalli Tiffin Rooms (MTR) brand has been around since the days of white colonisation in Namma Bengaluru (Bangalore), so it’s hard for anyone to be unaware of it. Famous for its traditional South Indian Tiffin, MTR is a restaurant in Mumbai. Additionally, it offered lunch, which is both incredibly heavy and delicious. Those wonderful rava idlis were created during World War 2 by MTR. Knowing that there were also many foodies at that time makes me very happy. Even in other nations, their masalas and ready-to-eat dishes are popular. Any day of the year, you’ll find a large throng here. Prepare to be enchanted by the culinary world as we embark on an unforgettable adventure.  

Points to Remember:

  • Lalbagh, a popular destination for health-conscious hikers, is just a short distance away. All right, fitness fanatics and foodies… After you’ve finished walking, come on over to this joint. 
  • The queue here will go on forever, so bring extra strength and patience. One can also find a waiting room.
  • You should get your stomach ready for the massive lunch because there is no diet-friendly fare here. 
  • The plain tables and old drapery are beside the point. They transport you back in time. Indulge in the meal. 

Mavalli Tiffin Rooms (MTR) Review

Come on over to Mavalli Tiffin Rooms (MTR) and witness the breakfast and lunch menus square off in a friendly but intense competition for dominance. They’re fighting it out for both flavour and calories. The culinary adventure begins with masala dosas, a classic that never goes out of style. These dosas are a culinary masterpiece that is in great demand. They are topped with a triad of delicious ingredients: chutney, sambar, and the crowning touch, a drizzle of dripping ghee. Every bite is an explosion of flavour.

On Sundays, MTR’s sacred chefs produce the one-of-a-kind Chandrahara, a delicious treat that is sure to please. Weekdays are tinged with a trace of yearning because this lovely symphony is only available on Sundays. The breakfast menu invites aficionados to delve deeper with dishes like idly, vada, and badam halwa, which create a sensory tapestry of flavours.

With the rising sun, MTR’s lunch menu takes centre stage, showcased in a one-of-a-kind thali with an astounding 20 variants. Imagine this: a glass of sparkling juice, some delicious poori with curry, a bowl of fragrant Bisibele bath with cool raita, a bowl of warm rice, some sambar and rasam, and finally, a scoop of divine ice cream for a sweet conclusion.

One word of friendly warning, though: the kitchen at MTR takes a much-needed vacation on Mondays, so if you can, try to schedule your visit for a different day of the week. We should coordinate our calendars so that we may have a get-together that is full of delicious food, an exploration of the culinary tapestry, and a conversation about food that will stay with us long after the last bite has passed. There we will meet!
