Poori-potato masala at Saravana Bhavan.
Saravana is almost always crowded, and we made the mistake of going on Sunday night when most people after their weekend shopping or a movie eat out. Had to wait a good 20 minutes to get a table for 4 and by then our tummies were growling nastily. But the wait would be worth it, we thought; their sambar in particular is excellent. But on that day we were a disappointed lot. Our masala dosas and their accompanying chutneys were too salty though the kids' pooris looked good enough. The great Madras filter coffee had too much decoction and robbed us of an early sleep that night.
