|Rava Thosai Set|
The food here is not posh by any means, especially since it's got the prison-feel with the steel, compartmentalized platters, but for me, it's a nice break from the rich meats and other proteins we consume too much of. It is no wonder that this is the stuff served at Indian temples, and often for nothing except a voluntary donation. If you steer clear from the deep fried breads, these snacks are a good way to put the body right on track. And it tastes a lot better than most health foods out there. With more than 5000 years of history, the Indians must know a thing or 2 about how to get this right.
And if you want to complete your Indian experience, walk across the street to Madras' sister shop which offers Ayurvedic treatments and offers Shiro Dhara, the ancient treatment of dripping oil onto the brow chackra (the third eye) located on your forehead. It is supposed to give you a glow and take years (read lines, crows' feet and other wrinkles) off!
