Short description- in case u r in a hurry:
In the road on which this restaurant is located, there are few more shops of similar names and permutations and combinations of the first part of the name and second. We chose to go to this one coz our blogger friend Arvind suggested we try the food here. It was also in our list that we had prepared when we decided to visit mysuru.
Like many other restaurants of this category, people share seats with strangers. Tables r small and so r the chairs. So high chance that two L sized people will brush shoulders. If both r XL , they will surely feel like Siamese twins. In summers there will b real time heat and sweat transmission from one to the other….
The shop offers only two items on its solid food verbally narrated menu – mylari dosa and idly.
The mylari dosa is very different from the usual masala dosa. This one was not crisp and thin and large in size but is soft, thick and small in size. It was fluffy and had almost a pancake type of consistency.
The usual potato cube curry Filling was not there. Instead there was a curry with tiny cubes of onion and I guess almost mashed potato. Absolutely different and very delicious. Dosa came with the aloo inside it.
Rate the dosa 4.25/5
The idly here was brilliant. Super soft, had a strong fermented feel to it and a strong character, unlike the super fluffy thatte idly on Bengaluru mysuru highway.
Rate it 4.5/5
We also had filter coffee. Usually when I order filter coffee anywhere in the country, I ask for ‘strong’ coffee. I did the same here. The guy looked at me as if I was transparent and as if I did not exist there. Assuming he had not heard me, I repeated myself. This time the expression on this face was that of anger and shock – as if I have asked him the colour of his underwear in front of 10 people!!!!
Overall rating of food and beverages at Vinayaka mylari averages out to 3.9/5
Wud probably not revisit
