Inside is dimly lit, cool with hanging corn husks and an open kitchen. We quickly ordered a malleswaram dosa and a plate of puddu. The dosa is the most famous one and rightly so. I know how difficult it is for masala ingesting north Indians to come across one that does not have mashed potatoes in its belly. This one is a thickish dosa with a red spicy garlicky paste inside. Soft, spicy and very fragrant. If you liked this, you will also love the garlic dosa at Kausstubh which is equally delightful.
Next came the uttapam and we had also ordered a rawa coconut dosa. Both were good. No need to qualify that statement. They were good. The sambar was a mild, have by bucketful kind. I love the spicier, tangy, kick in your upper mouth kind. Good food, good service.
Next came the puddu. They were paniyanams or Unniappam. They were soft and delicious. We had cheese filled ones at Kausstubh and they were a lot less oily too. Worth a try, nevertheless.
