South Indian Food Joints In Ahmedabad

 

Ahmedabad is a booming city. One of the reasons it’s extremely comfortable to stay here is the diversity in food that it offers. There’s food and taste for everyone. With Ahmedabad now welcoming various cuisines with open arms, it is also crucial to maintain its taste and authenticity without “Indianizing” it. Ahmedabad is crazy about South Indian food. From a “Gujarati version” (in terms of the taste), of idlis and vadas, South Indian food in Ahmedabad is now the most preferred cuisine or comfort food. Food is and will always be a booming business in Gujarat and the rise and growth of South Indian food joints in Ahmedabad is a classic example of that. From a time when the phrase South Indian food joints in Ahmedabad was only defined by Sankalp; we have now seen a sea change in the way South Indian cuisine is prepared and served in the city. We bring to you some of the most authentic South Indian food joints of the city that you must visit once to satiate your taste buds.
