Who does not love South Indian cuisine? A franchise of the Mahesh Lunch home and Banana Leaf of Mumbai has cooked up a variety of specialities, removing misconceptions of just the idli/vada/dosa combinations. A resto-bar ambience with outdoor seating strewn with lanterns tempts one to sit there and watch the world go by on the bustling streets of Calangute. An air-conditioned cosy loft for sitting waits for one within. Cane chairs and glass topped tables, cushions in green and orange and the overhead technicolour shades add to the colourful appeal. For the appetisers, go with 'Kadi Patta Prawns' served straight off the pan with its unique green ‘Mangalorean Thick Curry' and a 'Neer Dosa'. Speciality 2 lies in the 'Coorg Roast Pork'. For the mains, browse through a wide array of 'Masala Idlis' and dig into the 'Andhra Chicken Idli' – a small box of 6 fluffy quarters of idli mixed with curry paste and chicken pieces. The 'Hyderabadi Korma' makes for a great accompaniment. Wind up with the desserts, try the 'Cold Yelneer Payasam' from Karnataka, or the 'Continental Style Akrot Halwa'(chocolate and walnuts).
