Sapaad Brigade: Adventures in food

Listen to this audio programme on how a group of Bangaloreans explore obscure city restaurants and relish authentic local cuisine, every Thursday afternoon.

Sapaad brigade is a group of food enthusiasts that gather at Koshy’s restaurant on St. Mark’s road, every Thursday at 1 PM. After the group has gathered, they go visit one pre-selected restaurant which is well known for its food. Usually the restaurants selected are low cost, and relatively obscure.

One person from the Sapaad Brigade group is selected to scout for such places and the final list is discussed within the group. By Thursday, a consensus is arrived at, and they spend the afternoon wining and dining at the selected restaurant.
