|Most Bangaloreans are no strangers to the good quality food that comes out of the kitchen at Iskcon Temple.|
nearly three years now, ‘Higher Taste’, a small bakery in Jayanagar,
run by Iskcon, has been living up to its reputation with its array of
confectioneries and bakery items.|
People living near the bakery have complete trust in the quality of these items and the affordable prices have only increased its popularity.
Serving only sattvic food, that is food without onions, garlic and caffeine, ‘Higher Taste’ has a regular set of customers.
One of the first things you notice in the bakery is the array of Indian sweets. Coming in all shapes and colours, they are simply tempting.
There is a large variety of kaju, pista and badam sweets, apart from the traditional Bengali sweets and the temple prasadam, which is the ladoo. All of these are quite popular with the customers.
One can also not miss the pastries and cakes here. A must try is the ‘chocolate truffle’, doughnuts and the various tarts and brownies, which are all made without eggs.
There is also a separate counter for low-calorie sweets. In fact, one can be spoilt for choice here.
Says Arvind Chaudhary, the manager of the place, “We want to show people that even sattvic food can be equally tasty and over the years, people have taken a liking to it.”
A trip to ‘Higher Taste’ isn’t complete without trying the bakery items like the veg puff, bread rolls, spinach and corn puff, cheese puff and the kachoris and samosas.
“We also try to innovate and bring in new items. The ‘dhokla sandwich’, which is inspired by the veg sandwich, is very popular,” says Arvind.
Being a bakery, the place also serves a variety of freshly-baked breads and dinner rolls.
“We are proud of our collection of breads and there is also a good demand for it,” adds Arvind.
Open on all days between 10 am and 9 pm, ‘Higher Taste’ is located at 119/A/36, 9th Main, Behind Jain Temple, 4th Block, Jayanagar. For details, call 42068110.
