As it is said “The Third Time is the Charm” and it was the Jainwals turn to pick a restaurant for the third meeting of gravy gurus. We picked ‘The Dosa Republic’. This is a new restaurant by the famous food truck owners of Curry up now, Akash and Rana Kapoor.
I picked this one up from the “hot new business” section on yelp. I was pretty sure from the start that the food would be good since I have heard great reviews on the curry up now truck.
The food is like south Indian street food with some different cultural flairs to it. The portion sizes are large. Two people could comfortably share a dosa and a starter. We ordered all the starters on their menu.
I liked the manchurian idlis and the uttapam nachos. I did not care for the Panko Crusted Bharwan (Stuffed) Anaheim Chili but really liked the kale wada sambhar and their samosa bits.
After liberally splurging on starters, we ordered main course. Everyone ordered different items. The orders were as follows:
- Priyendra: Mysorean Masala
- Priyanshi: Sinhala with Paneer
- Atashi: Mumbaiyya
- Vishal: Mumbaiyya
- Arthi: Paisano
- Chirag: Vegetarian Tangra
- Deeksha: Purani Dilli
- Asim:Chilli Chicken and noodles.
- Aishwarya:Chennai onion masala
- Saumil: Purani Dilli
We had sweet dosas for dessert but the gulab jamun was unparalleled.
Almost all had fun eating the different kind of dosas but I thought Mumbaiyya was the best.
The decor of the place a little rustic with wooden tables and the menu on the chalk board somehow reminded me of Roma burgers in San Francisco. I think they also have their menu written on one.
Wish we had taken pictures of all the dosas. The only one picture that Aish took was :
The reservation was under my name and somehow the lady on the phone heard my name “Apishi”
