:: PerGram10Paise ::

Bangalore is my second home, and that doesnt mean I'm blessed with some home made food all these years. In fact, im living outside home eating only Hostel / Hotel / Mess food for the last 14 yrs. In this long period of time, I had come across so many food items and payment options.

But.... here is a strange (rather interesting) practise of serving food at Nilgiris, Brigade Road, Bangalore. Recently Nilgiris, rebranded their Kurunji restaurants to "Masala Bread" in the Underground space of Nilgiris, and serve breads, cakes, pufs, cool drinks, milkshakes and buffet meal as well. They started the buffet meal with "Buffet Small for Rs.39" and "Buffet large for Rs.49" and given an option of choosing between Veg and Non-Veg.

For various reasons (Including, bored of Andhra meals from Avakkai / Nagarguna and liked the ambience of Masala Bread) we (my colleagues and I) started visiting "Masala Bread" regularly for Lunch. All of a sudden, couple of weeks back, we could see a weighing scale, next to the food counter. It took few minutes for me understand and digest the concept of serving / selling food by weighing in grams.

Each gram costs you 10 paise. Here is the Flow....

You choose what u need.... from the option of 2 variety rices, 2 kurmas, 2 subzees and 2 kinds non veg dishes.
choose

Then... she weighs it and make an invoice....
weigh

Collect it and pay at the counter....
collect

Though it looked weird for me on day 1, we still visit this place for 3 reasons.
1. We still like the food being served with all mothers love and awesome ambience.
2. I eat what i feel like eating
3. I pay, only for what i'm taking.

Guys... you can also check this place in leisure, some time....
Thanks to shivu for the pictures.
