Best Dosas we have found in Bahrain! - Edit

We discovered Anand Bhavan a few months ago and they have the best dosas in many varieties. A Dosa is a thin rice flour crepe often filled with a warm potato mixture and spices. Try Podi Masala Dhosa for lots of spice and ground lentils inside. Anand Bhavan also has the best chai in Bahrain and the owner meticulously ensures the mixture of cardamom, cinnamon and ginger is perfect. Also the delicate rice flour steamed pancakes served with a tiny pot of coconut chutney and a tiny pot of spicy stew (sambar) are sublime and refined Indian cuisine at its best and makes for a great breakfast! The average cost of a meal here is $3-4 US. Anand Bhavanis about 30 meters down the little alley from the Hindu Temple kind of in the shadows just beyond the intersection of a larger street which crosses the little alley street which the Hindu Temple and Anand Bhavan are on. The best way to get here is to go to the Intercontinental Hotel and from there ask directions to the modern souk building (about a 5 minute walk). From there ask the Indian people around how to get to the Hindu Temple which is just another 5 minute walk up the main street from the big modern Arabic souk building with its wood-covered roof. Again, the Hindu people in the neighborhood can direct you and you will find it. Anand Bhavan also has signs above eye level on the second floor level above the street.

Pros: Sublime Idli, Wonderful Dhosas, Best Chai in Town
