Sourdough, with its distinctive tangy flavour and chewy texture, quickly went onto become a favourite among the cafégoers in Bengaluru. Reason? Unlike commercial yeasts, sourdough is leavened using a natural starter composed of flour and water, which captures wild yeasts and beneficial bacteria from the environment. This slow fermentation contributes to the breakdown of gluten but while enhancing its nutritional profile, making it easier to digest and richer in probiotics.

If you are a fan, Sour House offers an exceptional opportunity to indulge in this traditional artisanal bread. Located in Koramangala, this bakery and cafe specialises in gut-friendly foods, with sourdough as a cornerstone of their offerings. Helmed by Selvan Dandapani, this bakehouse boasts a welcoming red brick facade with a garden seating on the inside and a cosy bakehouse beyond the doors provides a space where patrons can savour delicious sourdoughinfused dishes, learn about the intricate process behind its creation through their detailed workshops and shop for freshly baked loaves of various breads including baguettes, focaccia and lots more.

And we couldn’t have picked a better day to experience the bakes served here firsthand than a rainy Sunday morning. Complementing the weather was piping hot Kimchi Cheese Toastie (Kimchi made in-house, blended cheese, on sourdough) accompanied by Tomato Soup. Although satisfied but not yet satiated, we opted to order Turkish Eggs plated with creamy double-poached eggs on hung curd and chilli oil with a side of sourdough.

While the downpour did not seem like it would stop anytime soon, we made room for more food. From Bagel Sandwiches to Ciabata and Toasties, the menu is vivid, but we headed over to the fresh French bakes section and picked out some interesting pastries to go along with our coffees. One can expect pies, short breads, puffs and danish, among other rare dishes like Fennel And Jaggery Croissant and Lemon Curd Croissant at this charming food destination. We coupled a mocha with a Choco Chip & Walnut Cookie and a Vietnamese Shekarato with Honey And Sea Salt Croissant and were in love. The eggless and flaky honey glazed pastry sprinkled with sea salt replaced our love for butter and chocolate croissants very effortlessly — ending the meal on a sweet and salty note!

Head here for some interest in takes on bakes that will surely excite you if bread is something that you consider as food for your soul! Do take a friend along too, cause in this weather — the more the company, the better!

INR 400 for two. At Koramangala.
