Benne Dosai, Idli
Veera Pillai Street is a little known food street just off Commercial Street. With 2 main vendors serving the most decadent dosais and idlis, it's a must visit for foodies looking to try popular local food. The Double Benne Dosai and the Idli stall are the most well known. The Benne Dosai is soaked in flavourful butter but retains its own dosai nuances even so. The idlis are melt-in-the-mouth and served with two chutneys making them totally irresistible. Just perfect for an evening snack in the middle of a shopping extravaganza on Commercial Street, or totally worth a special visit just to explore these old lanes that appear stuck in a time-warp.
- Opens only from 4 PM - 8 PM every evening
