Vidyarthi Bhavan: This eatery in Gandhi Bazaar opened even before Independence. Since then, it’s been serving the most delicious dosas to Bangaloreans and tourists. The dosa is crisp and golden, benefitting from lashings of ghee and served only with chutney, no sambar. Apparently Rajnikanth is a fan and always eats a Vidyarthi Bhavan masala dosa when he’s in town.

At the Lalbagh outlet, the original, they give you a small container of ghee to add more richness to the dosa.
