The legendary eatery has been serving varieties of idli, rasam and filter kaapi – we explore why it makes for a great breakfast date spot.

Chow Down

It may sound weird to some, but breakfast dates are underrated. Strictly for those who love mornings {we do}, you can start you day with your partner on a happy note. And it’s gonna happen with dishes like pepper idli, Kanchipuram idli, butter idli, rava idli, kadhi, oondi sambhar and khotto sambhar in your tummy. We love their jack fruit idli, a must try.

With just three odd tables to sit at, you can opt to stand if you’re in a hurry. Their idlis come closest to what they serve in the southern part of the country.. The variety of chutneys they serve is also phenomenal. A special mention to their gunpowder. Also, apparently they charge extra if you don’t finish your sambhar here. Well, that seems fair for those who waste food so, we’re voting yes on that one.

So, We're Saying...

If you’re looking for a place that satiates your need for a good idli thali, make a trip to Matunga East. Couple those idlis with some rasam and gunpowder, and you’re got yourself a happy family.
