    I echo the above mentioned statement. I was frustrated with the limited choice of continental breakfast that these eateries serve.

    I had the good fortune of studying in Bangalore with localites and they used to bring Neer Dhosaai from home. Loved them. Add Lemon rice to that with a dash of lime. heaven in mouth.

    This post reminds me of the breakfast drives I used to take in Delhi for Paratha with white homemade ghee. ๐Ÿ™‚

    also, wanted to know…i am desperate to find this hotel I saw in one of the traveler series in DD chandana. The rider(woman) goes to this hotel early in the morning, which is quite old (40 yrs!) and tries idli/ chitranna. Seems the hotel is same as what it was 40 yrs ago. Many VIPs visit this. Any idea which is this? This too is outside bluru, on some highway…Bluru-Hoskote highway??

      Hi Harsha – not sure of the place you are referring to, if you could me the name of the programme on DD Chandana, will try to research abt the place.

    Excellent list. I have been to a few places of these already and loved them. Two more places I loved were Murugan Idly on way to Krishnagiri and Swami Hotel near Nayakanhatti bus stand (Chitradurga district). Murugan โ€˜s podi idli, dosa and Mysore Pak were awesome. Swamy Hotelโ€™s Special kaali dosa and thatte idly are delightful. I have had some decent stuff in Challakere too (Hotel Sudha was one and another near Nehru Circle).
