Central Tiffin Room and Vidyarthi Bhavan trivia

July 15, 2008

• Early today morning, visited Vidyarthi Bhavan for the first time after it got renovated.

• Got to know from the cashier that it can hold 15 seats more than earlier.

• Looks more spacious, and lot more light

• Time taken for renovation – 25 days

• Cost: shhhhh!

• Kesaribhaath taste has gone down drastically (tasted like some Rave paste). And at Seven in the morning, Idly-Sambhar already had a somewhat sour feel to it.

• That was when I cancelled my Masale Dose order. I was sure it can NEVER EVER BEAT CTR.

• Not at all surprised that the Malleswaram joint stood first in a contest conducted by The Times of India as the ‘King of all Dose outlets in Bangalore’. (actually, it can compete with any Dose outlet in the Chaturdashabhuvanas).

• Last Sunday saw a great rush at CTR (after many got to know of its existence through TOI). The Hippies to the Heppies were all there from early in the morning till noon ordering BMDs (Benne/Butter Masale Dose).

• The toothless old man, a regular at CTR for years, wearing Panche, white shirt and having the traditional white-red-white lines on his forhead, was shocked to see half naked girls hogging “Butter Masala Dosa” seated behind him! And one of them was exclaiming – “Oh my….Thizzz heaven, isn’t it?” for which our good old man smiled to himself, sipping his cup of hot filter Coffee, and thought – Lady, CTR is the HQ of the heavenly abode called Malleswaram.
