-By Rashmi Uday Singh

This no-frills eatery was Raj Kapoor’s favourite and continues to be one of mine too! It is in this 73-year-old Matunga home (with the most authentic Tamilian food), that I filmed with Gordon Ramsay for his Channel 4 show on India. We picked this as the finest in its category. It continues to draw regulars with its consistent quality. On Sundays, for Pongal-Avial-Bhaath and on all days for your Idli–Dosa fix, you must visit this small, two-floored, white-coloured café. Savour the Idli with home-made butter and Molagapodi (more popularly known as gunpowder chutney), or eat your way through delectable Tuppa Dosa and Pesarattu Dosa, all accompanied with hearty servings of spicy Sambhar (yes, it’s unsweetened) made with the perfect podi. Upma with Molagapodi served on top is available too. On occasional morning, they make a tasty Raagi Sevai. Rasam Vada, Kadi Vada and Neer Dosa are just as famous as the Misal, and Dahi Misal (what can we say? So much is famous here!). Paan Poli fans come here on Fri/Sat. Dahi Bhaath, and Bisi Bele Bhaath are served daily. Malad residents, a `60-thali awaits you. Lemon Bhaath Pulioderai on alternate days. Ask for seasonal adais when you visit. Appam and Stew available on weekday evenings only after 6.30pm. The Ulundu (urad dal dosa), Tuppa Onion Dosa and the Raagi Dosa (finger millet dosa) get my vote. Must pick up their coffee powder as well as the decoction coffee maker, along with snacks and podis from their counter

If you want to have authentic South India then please stand in the queue outside Cafe Madras. It would definitely be worth a wait. Though a bit claustrophobic, this place is a heaven for food. Good hygienic food with waiters themselves maintaining utmost cleanliness.

Steamed idli-Sambhar-Pudi is one of its kind, unlike the rather dry idlis u find elsewhere... so are the Medu wadas... Best South Indian outlet at affordable prices
