A Peep Into The Foodie Scene: Top 5 Bangalore Food Bloggers
What is that one thing that never bores you? Yes, correct. Food! You must have heard this bit of advice from your parents while growing up, “Eat to live, but don’t live to eat”. Well, is that actually true? Most of us follow the latter of the two options, if we are not wrong. Be it delicious recipes, nutrition tips, or eateries – we tend to want more and more of tasty, lip-smacking delicacies.
Even in Bangalore, which is a melting pot of immigrants from across the country and the world, the food scene is constantly evolving. In order to help you with tips about good food, we have curated five of the best Bangalore food bloggers. Read on to know why we love them and how they have been inspiring foodies to delve into the realm of DIY cooking.
1. Richa Gupta
Richa is the cook, writer, and photographer of her blog, titled “My Food Story”. When we asked her about her inspiration and goals, this is what she had to say:
“I’ve grown up in the kitchen alongside my mum and grandmothers and conversations in my family are always about the next meal. I’ve picked up their love for food along the way, and with this blog, I share my food story with you”.
A marketing professional by qualification for seven years, she realised in 2015 that her real passion was food. And thus, the easiest place seemed to start with her blog. Her recipes are quick, easy, and creative – to bring relaxation and fun to daily cooking. Based in Bangalore, her husband Denver is her biggest support – who manages the technicalities behind her blog and samples everything that she shares on it.
Here is one of her recipes for leftover mashed potato ham cakes, that immediately grabbed our attention:

2. Debolina Ray
This Bangalore-based traveller, fashion enthusiast, and food lover is the brains behind She Knows Grub – a fashion, food, and travel blog. In her journey of discovering food and beverages from across the world, she brings forth reviews and photographs of various recipes, events, restaurants, and promotions in her writeups. Rated as one of the top food bloggers in Zomato and contributors in TripAdvisor, she considers food to be an integral part of the cultural aspect of any place she visits.
Here is a snapshot of her extensive review about Cafe Noir in Phoenix Market City, Bangalore:
3. Maromi Panda
Maromi has been capturing the hearts of her readers through her creatively written narratives on food, travel, and innovative crafts. Her blog, Hungry Panda Diaries, has been curated around this famous quote by Julia Child – “People who love to eat are always the best people”. Her simple introduction goes like this:
“Hey there! I am Maromi. Software developer by profession and foodie at heart. I and my husband, both share the same passion for food. We love trying out new restaurants and different cuisines. And cooking? Well, it sort of depends on my mood. There are days when I spin out excellent dishes in my kitchen (though those are rare occasions ). I am also an avid reader and a lover of DIY art & craft”.
Check out her review on The Whitefield Arms, if you are planning a visit there shortly:
Abhilash hails from the coastal city of Kannur, Kerala. To pay for his food and travel endeavours, he works as a support engineer. Well, that’s what he says! He loves Pan-Asian cuisines and absolutely enjoys Mediterranean cuisine, owing to his nearly two-decade stint in the Middle East. A self-proclaimed, cold-blooded food critic, he will never find himself at the mercy of bad food. In search of a platform that would help him share his food and travel experiences, he started blogging. His blog Gulp ‘n’ Munch now stands as a written account of his food and travel diaries and it is something that he would like to share with the world.
Abhilash’s personal quote, “We are all born for a higher purpose, many of us realise it when it’s too late…I know what I am supposed to do - eat, travel, explore, and experience” is a solid example of his dreams and ambitions.

Last but not the least, we were delighted to contact Rohit, the mastermind behind his blog – www.rohitdassani.com. On asking about himself, this is what he had to say:
“Hi, this is Rohit Dassani from Bangalore – an avid food blogger, photographer, and traveller. A IT professional by work, but a foodie by heart. Started blogging in the beginning of 2009 with the idea to share experiences. For the last few years the focus has been solely on writing about restaurant/food reviews, travel escapades, and day-to-day experiences. Started my culinary journey from Kolkata, a land of extraordinary flavours and incredible street food. The experiences have moved from different cities like Hyderabad, Delhi NCR/Gurgaon, and has finally reached Bangalore. Love to explore new flavours whenever I can. My favourite cuisines include Indian, Italian, and Thai. “
