I was out with a few Fooderati members at Venus restaurant for our South Indian 101 event, and when talking about dosas, I remembered a place I’d been to months back and kept its photographs and blog posts on the back burner: Sukh Sagar at the Beach.
I remember the day so clearly: it was Eid and I was grumpy because I was being carted off (not that I was physically hoisted by my parents into the car…that’s highly impossible you see) to a vegetarian restaurant. These were, I believe, my exact words:
“I can’t believe on a day everyone else is eating meat, you’re making me eat VEG!”
Yeah, I’ve mentioned before how much of a chicken and meat eater I am. I was appalled, upset and scandalized I was being deprived of satisfying my flesh-eating carnivore-istic behaviour to become a grass-eating herbivore cow.
Anyway, off I went with la familia to sacrifice myself to parental authority and give up my dreams of tearing into a lamb chop or chomping on a biryani.
I was then told I was going to have teppanyaki dosa. Seriously?! What is that???
The concept is this: they serve you a variety of mini-dosas and mini-uttapams, and here’s the kicker: you can order repeats of whichever dosas you liked and as many as you like. NO JOKE.
So in dosas, we had (in this order in the following photo gallery): Paneer dosa, Masala dosa, Mysore masala dosa, Pav bhaji dosa, Mix vegetable dosa, Spinach and cheese dosa, Rawa sada dosa.
I adored the pav bhaji and paneer ones, personally. You can watch the dosas being created teppanyaki style in front of your eyes at the bar stools placed right in front of the cooking counter. I didn’t do that on that day because my brother was with us and he wanted to sit on the familiar table-and-chairs area.
Then the mini uttapams (in this order): Tomato onion uttapams, tomato omelet uttapams, chinese uttapams, mushroom uttapams, brocolli uttapams (realizing all these pics look similar…sorry, I’d forgotten my flash that day!):
And for dessert, the sweet uttapam (I think this was jaggery on the uttapam):
Here’s the board of awesome people who ate their way to the dosa hall of fame…DOSAZILLAS them! Kudos to your eating power…I think next time maybe I’ll go on an empty stomach and see what I can manage. And just guess how much this costs? Remember, you get unlimited dosas and uttapams…all this for…
