The street food in Wilson Garden doesn’t just mean dosa camps. There’s some north Indian cuisine here, too.
Adjacent to the Janatha Hotel, the Royal India Kabab Corner sells perhaps some of the spiciest food on this street, even taking the dosa camps into account. Despite the name, kababs aren’t what sells most, says Balachandra Shetty, the owner. That honour goes to the biriyanis, hillocks perched precariously on their stainless-steel plates.
As can be expected from any north Indian joint, very little of the food tends to taste sweet. If the dosa camps fail to satisfy, or if north Indian is on the menu, the Royal India Kabab Corner deserves a visit. It’s open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., then after a quick siesta the restaurant bounces back to business by 6 p.m. “We’re open until the police come visiting,” says Shetty.
In service for 15 years, the kabab corner serves some pretty good chicken biriyani, which goes well with their chicken Hyderabadi.
And if you’re asking, what sort of a kabab corner would it be, if the kababs weren’t equally good?
