The vacation in Dubai got off to a good start. This is what i have been “experiencing” in Dubai: Saravana Bhavan’s Idly, Vada, Sambhar; sangeetha’s mini-tiffin; Woodlands’ rava Dosai and Pongal and of course the must-have masala-milk.
No, i am not on an epicurean vacation, but a trip to dubai cannot escape the delicacies that these south-indian restaurants have to offer. I go to Chennai yearly, but i don’t feel the same there. maybe it is because of the fact that there are only two restaurants (that i know of ) near my house: Saravana bhavan and Data Udipi and they are more than half a km away from my house and it would involve a short drive rather than a walk to get these. But, in Dubai, in the the place when my in-laws live, all of them (yes, all of them) are just at their doorstep. All i have to do is to use the lift to go down from the 1st floor (why waste energy) ans then walk right into any of the restaurants.
But, it is not so easy. One’s brain easily gets clouded and confused when given so many options. Imagine trying to answer a multiple-choice question with more than 10 answers! So, i have decided to make it easy for my brain. I started 2 days back with the first one on the road and then moved on the next one yesterday and so on. But, there is another problem like today for example. I went into woodlands today and wasn’t very satisfied with the sambhar given along with Pongal and regretted a lot that i had passed over saravana bhavan for this one. But, rules have to be followed and there is no way i am going back to saravana bahavan until i finish with the last restaurant down the road and start over with the loop again.
