I know my food philosophy is very non-vegetarian but here’s the thing, I actually do eat vegetarian food. But particular kinds. For example, put a plate of medhu vadas and onion uttapams in front of me and I’ll devour the plates clean.
But where to get the good stuff? I unequivocally pitch for Venus restaurant in Karama.
I have never, ever, tasted such crispy and fresh vadas anywhere else. When compared to the fare I get at Venus, everything pales. I normally have idlis or an uttapam as well, but this time decided to mix it up with a masala dosa. I think I’m more of a plain dosa person, although I did enjoy mixing the crisp dosa with the piping hot and slightly spicy potato bhaji inside.
Plus, I know loads of people prefer eating these kinds of food with the lovely sambhar, but I suggest giving the white chutney a go as well. I do love my vadas with the white chutney.
So…for South Indian food? Venus. Always.
