After almost a year of waiting for Saravana Bhavan to open in Al Khobar and having lost all patience in the process, they finally opened up a few months ago. It was impossible to get seating here for the first few weeks/months thanks to the crazy rush.
@saravanasaudi is a South Indian vegetarian restaurant chain with joints in every continent and the Indian expat population considered this place god sent since there are really no vegetarian resto’s in the #Sharqiya.
I decided to get some lunch and I was super excited since I hadn’t had some good Dosas in a while. I ordered a plate of “Sambhar Vada (2 nos)” for SR. 11, “Mulagapodi Masala Dosa” for SR. 12 and a “Special Madras Filter Coffee” for SR. 7.
They brought the Vada’s first and I wasn’t really impressed with this one since the Vada’s weren’t fresh and the Sambhar was a bit too watered down for my liking. The Podi Dosa though was AMAZINGGG. Spicy, Crunchy and the chutney’s really flattering the ghee infused Dosa.
This really made up for the disappointing vada and the filter coffee was spot on. I love good coffee and there is nothing better than a really good filter coffee to brighten up your day.
