After completing a one-day trip to Mekedaatu and Chunchi falls, we were damn hungry. As we had crossed Kanakpura, we struggled to find any hotels which could provide us an evening snack. Having lost of all the hopes and almost decided to fill our tummy in Bangalore, we luckily found the Davanagere Benne Dose on the Kanakpura road.
Located next to Venkatadri Kalyan mantap, we almost missed noticing it as the hotel is covered by the trees on the road. Thanks to my co-passenger who noticed and all were extremely happy to find something to eat.
We parked our car and headed to the hotel and only to hear Dose are out of stock. Extremely disappointed, we ask for the available options and could get the Bonda. Without much option but to fill our stomach, we took 2 plates of Bonda. We informed the cashier that if at all there is a chance of getting Dose, keep us in priority.
We started eating the Bonda cursing our luck for not getting the Dose but soon the taste of Bonda made us forget that we did miss Dose. Before we finished the Bonda, we heard the Dose Maker screaming ‘5 more Dose possible’. The cashier immediately searched for us and we made no delay in rushing to the cashier and get 5 Davangere Benne Dose.
We felt overwhelmed as we were finally getting what we desired. Within minutes, the freshly prepared Dose was ready on our table. As we took the first bite, our taste buds got activated. The Dose was delicious. The Butter could have been tad higher but the tasty Masala and the Aloo Palya in the Dose made an impact sidelining the negative point of less Butter or Benne. As we savored the taste of Masala Dose, we looked at the writings which did attract us.
We Enjoyed the Dose along with reading the above sayings. There was one more saying In English but unfortunately we couldn’t capture it. As we filled our tummy, we came back to Bangalore rejoicing the Dose and also the sayings. We have decided to visit the hotel again exclusively for this purpose. We hope to reach there again.
The hotel opens at 7 in the morning. If you are travelling on Kanakapura road, drop a visit here to have your breakfast.
