Can you eat more than 70 dosas? Take up the challenge!

_mg_7465

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):

AND CHOCOLATE DOSA!!! I actually really liked this – whoever invented this, you’re a genius I tell ya. GENIUS.

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…

…Dhs 45/- per person. Seriously. I’m gobsmacked. Flabbergasted. Essentially, speechless. And full. Will I go back? Hell yes.

Parking tips: Once you go down the length of The Walk, you’ll pass Sukh Sagar on the Beach at the corner of Rimal. Just ahead on your right, there’s a massive parking lot by the beach which is your best bet. Free parking too!

    Ohhh this was what you were talking about! I think the chocolate dosa is <3>d love to go to taste the thousand and one dosa flavors soon ;p Another fooderati date I suppose?

  2. Radhina

    Definitely looks like a place I may be heading to soon 🙂 my only problem with dosas generally is that the filling gets over before the actual dosa. Mini dosas sound just perfect to me 🙂

  3. FooDiva

    Is there another Sukh Sagar in Karama as I think I may have been? I don’t have a sweet tooth but do love the look of this chocolate dosa. If not I’ll just pile on the Masala dosas but even with my large appetite I think 70 may be pushing out :). Lovely pix. x

    Fascinating, had no idea they were doing this at Sukh Sagar…though I’m not totally sure what I think about the uber creative dosas, seems sorta blasphemous in South Indian territory 😉 But DEFINITELY worth a try…I’ve give it a shot when I’m in the area next!

  5. Devina Divecha

    Didi – Yes this is the dosa place I was talking about 🙂 Elaine also said she wanted to check it out, so yes, this will definitely be a Fooderati event! I’m going to put something up tonight on the group.Radhina – head over with us! Mini dosas are cool, and I loved you can order more of whichever one you liked.

  6. Devina Divecha

    FooDiva – Yes there’s another one in Karama, but I don’t know if they do teppanyaki there. I haven’t been there in years. You don’t have to hit 70 haha; the females on the winning list managed only about 40, so perhaps we can still do it 😉 Thanks!I Live in a Frying Pan – I had no idea either until I was taken hostage to check it out haha. Yup, definitely worth a try. Maybe you’ll be free for the FiA event (haven’t picked a date yet!).

  7. Radhina

    I’m definitely in 🙂 (Altho not anytime next week cos it’s Dubai Boat Show and working weekends until March 18th) Keep me posted tho 🙂

  8. Anita menon

    Such a unique offering. I am so intrigued. You know Devina, you go to the most amazing places to eat. i would have loved to break some records eating some 100 odd dosas 😀

  9. Devina Divecha

    Anita – Thanks for stopping by! 100 dosas…whoa dosa champion right here! Haha, you seriously have to plan a long trip to Dubai and go out eating every day, one blog post suggestion per meal 😉

  10. Sheryn

    WOW! I love, love, love masala dosa so much… Probably 70% of the love I feel for dosa is because of the coconut chutney. 🙂

  11. Devina Divecha

    Sheryn – then you MUST come with for the FiA event I put up recently for this one 😀 Masala dosas will be had.
