LSD takes a flight !
TimeOut Bar - Bengaluru International Airport
well the last place on earth where i would dare try a dosa would be the “airport”, but surprisingly it was not bad. the dosa was crisp and more of the tamilian kind (which i like), well they could do away with the sugar that they add, because you are left with a little sweet after taste.
they are less greasy (which is good, i guess they’re catering to the international dosa hunters :-P).
the chutney thoug
well overall you could give this dosa a shot (ok just use the white ‘coconut’ chutney, it still edible) because i have not found anything worth eating at the airport.
taste: 6/10 ambience: 7/10 price: it’s the airport what do you think ?

airports/airplanes are usually associated with boring and stale food, but i had heard good things about the dosa at the TimeOut Bar at the Bangalore International Airport.
this place is located bang opposite gates 2&3 of the terminal and looks very understated. their mysore masala dosa on the other hand is the complete opposite ! it’s beautiful to say the least.
it’s made by the most unassuming chef which makes the final product even more deceptive ! its longer than the average ‘darshini dosa’ and has a beautiful golden glisten on the outside.
it’s also thinner than the udupi dosa, but as i tear into it my mouth is watering. it looks that good ! i put the dosa in my mouth and it just melts ! its worlds away from what i expected. it’s accompanied by a coconut chutney that has evidently been taken straight out of the fridge (because its cold) but it strangely complemented the hot dosa and the sambar wasn’t bad either. all in all it was the perfect dosa i needed as i waited for the flight boarding line to dwindle down :P
i would definitely recommend it as a quick airport snack the next time you’re in BIAL. we all know how appalling in-flight meals can be on short hauls these days :P
taste: 7.5/10 ambience: 6/10 (its an airport! go figure :P)
price: 5/10 (same reason as above :P)

oh this TimeOut Bar is one of my favourite pass time at the airport. i love the mysore plain cheese dosa here. the place has got it’s own charm and there’s something very intriguing about the dosa batter. i’ve waited for 25 mins almost every time and i still always make it a point to go back there. it sure is very expensive, but tell me one thing, what isn’t expensive at airports ??
i would rate this dosa high, simply for the pleasure i derive right from waiting in queue to pay, waiting in queue to eat, suggesting my own little customisation while the chef prepares my “crisp” dosa, to eventually eating the dosa oozing with cheese (the mozzarella that stretches, like the ones on pizzas ?!) oh ! i cant stop.
i think u must just go try it.
this dosa always makes me smile and say CHEEEEESE !
taste: 7.5/10 ambience: 6.5/10 price: i wish it was much cheaper that’s all i can say :-D
