Why am I even writing this post? I am sure you would have thought the same. Who wouldn’t know Wadeshwar, right? But my dear Punekars, this one’s for those who don’t belong here – the ones visiting the city for the first time, those who moved in a few a years back and haven’t explored this heaven yet, and even the Vaishali-lovers who just don’t want to try South Indian delicacies anywhere else. Well, I can’t blame them, I was one of them myself until a few years back.
But once I explored this one, I knew how both of them had their own specialties to offer. While Vaishali offers the best Mysore Masala Dosas, Wadeshwar takes pride in serving the best Aappe and Kothimbir Vadi. My personal favorite, the Molgapodi Idli here is a must, something everyone needs to try.
So far, I have tried almost everything on the menu here. To be honest, I am not a fan of the Mysore dosas here, I like the ones at Vaishali more. The Kothimbir Vadi, I fear has failed to impress me too. They are a bit too oily for my liking. But the Rasam Vada – yeah, the ghee idli – yeahh, and the sponge dosa – oh my god yes! They are just so good, so flavorful, so yum!
The outdoor seating here is perfect for an early morning breakfast and endless conversations. The service here is too good to be true. This last time we ordered multiple rasam vadas, dosas, idlis, and what not – and it was at our table within minutes.
Vaishali lovers, the chai is another reason you should come here. Needless to say, you also wouldn’t have to wait an hour to get a table here. So, if you are running out of patience this Sunday morning, do give Wadeshwar a try and let me know how you like it. And please bless me if you happen to like the Molgapodi idlis just a little too much.
