Mami’s Illam Pure Veg Restaurant is a recently refurbished South Indian restaurant in Discovery Gardens. Its interior is bright, airy, and split between two dining rooms; the second a spillover room I suppose, or maybe a family room. I came here for a Friday breakfast with my food buddy, Sam. Remember her? Well, Sam is a hard-core fan of Venus in Karama, so I knew this wasn’t going to be easy.
We started with an Idli-Vada dip. The Idli was not the fluffiest nor was the Vada the crispiest; even the Sambar lacked the pungency of Venus’s, so Sam reminded me…. repeatedly. But the truth is, our meal so far was pretty good. The filter coffee was excellent. Then they brought us our Masala and Rava Dosas. Of course, Sam immediately pointed out that the Masala Dosa served at Mami’s is smaller than at Venus…but when has size mattered…it was pretty damn good.
Service at Mami’s is excellent; friendly, accommodating and fast, making this a must visit restaurant.
Waste NOT. Want NOT.
