Try Mock Meat Dishes at these Restaurants in Bangalore
The term "mock meat" has been buzzing for quite some time now. Because of how it’s processed, some people don’t like it, while others have made peace with it as a viable alternative to meat. Even though this is still a heavily debated topic, if you're intrigued by mock meat and want to give it a shot, here is a list of restaurants that have it on their menus.
1. Kasipu Resto-Bar, Hesarghatta Main Road
If you're a vegetarian who feels like you're missing out on some meaty choices, head over to Kasipu. Their new menu offers dishes made with plant-based meat from Evolved Foods. Try the regional variants like Peppery Evolved Chettinad, Evolved Naati Biryani, and Punjabi Evolved Tikka Masala or go Asian with the Mongolian Evolved Steak Bites.

2. KUBO, Jayanagar
This recently opened Asian restaurant has an impressive menu with elaborate mock meat options in various textures, forms, and courses. They have everything from wok-fried vegan duck and mock meat satay to pounded mock meat filling in Baos. Try their Mock Duck Miso Ramen for a hearty meal, which incorporates mock duck with Ramen noodles, wood ear fungus, veggies like bok choy, and more in a flavourful miso broth.
