I’ve realised how little we talk about eating out in Bangalore – something that we do a LOT of. And by eating out I don’t mean actually stepping out of the house because remember how we love being couch potatoes, except when it comes to date nights that we can’t stop talking about?!
So here’s the thing – while I love talking about new places in Bangalore and where we ate on Instagram stories, the blog actually is my way of encouraging all of you to cook more often at home. Which is why the eating out stories never actually make it here. But let’s be honest here. There are days when I don’t like to cook and you don’t like to cook and I get that. We can’t avoid those days. And that’s why we are talking about this cool delivery place in town which actually does healthy food in Bangalore! Is there really such a thing where we can eat a burger and claim that it’s healthy? YUSSSSSSIR!
PurpleBasil first reached out to me a few months ago, and since then I’ve ordered food from them a few times and believe it or not, they seem to get better every single time!
We’ve tried the Blackbean Burger Meal, the Pulled Jack Burger Meal (my favourite – it’s spicy, but sooo delicious), and both the Veg and Non Veg Thai Salad!
Full points for creativity, because pulled jackfruit is a thing. Jackfruit was used to be one of those pretend chicken-vegetables for us. Mum would cook it for us when we wanted non veg. And now I know why. It has such a great texture and tossed in a barbecue sauce, it is epic!
I love that PurpleBasil uses whole wheat bread for its menu, and for once, this isn’t some caramel coloured bread – it’s actually the real thing. And soft and fluffy too.
Everything comes with it’s own sauce, some really delicious juices (great combinations like the red apple cooler and soul kadhi for example) and a light salad. Which is more than enough for one person.
Burgers is actually not all they have on their menu, there are light stews, stir frys, lentil crepes and all sorts of light, healthy but hearty meals that will never make you feel like you were saving calories.
Let’s talk about their packaging for a minute now. Because I am blown away! They have managed to eliminate as much plastic as they possibly could from their packaging. Everything comes in eco friendly containers – including the drink which comes in a cute kullad that you wouldn’t want to throw away (I have four now ????). The way the food is actually sent to you is also super cool. Each dish is actually double taped to the bottom of the tray so that there is no spillage and leakage which is really paying attention to detail.
This team really has it figured out!
If you are looking for happy, healthy, hearty meals to power your lifestyle and make the right choices, you must check PurpleBasil out. This is your one stop for healthy food in Bangalore.
Like they say – Happy Healthy Hogging ????
