Personal Journey Through The Filter Coffee Restaurant
I’ve visited Filter Coffee Kalyan Nagar restaurant a few times, and I always order the Dosa, idli, Pongal, poori, and paniyaram. The restaurant specializes in Tamil Nadu cuisine and serves an array of dishes that transport your taste buds straight to the southern regions of India.
However, if you’re in the mood for iconic dishes like Mysore Masala Dosa or Idli Vada Sambar, other renowned restaurants such as Vidyarthi Bhavan and CTR should be on your list for a truly authentic experience.
On my recent visit, I opted for the Idly, Rava Dosa, and the signature Filter Coffee. However, the experience didn’t live up to my expectations (on two dishes).
Highlights & Disappointments
I tried the Idli, Chutney & Sambar combo (Rs. 24 per Idli) with high hopes of reliving the soft idlis I remembered. But I was let down – the idli had lost its softness, and the chutneys and sambar didn’t go together as they used to. It was a reminder that even restaurants have off days when things aren’t consistent.
The Rava Dosa taught me that even at a crowded restaurant, perfection isn’t guaranteed. A return to Filter Coffee Kalyan Nagar won’t find me ordering another Rava Dosa. For the ultimate Rava Dosa, I’d suggest trying Janata Restaurant near Sajjan Rao Circle (if you’re in Bangalore).
Original Filter Coffee (Rs. 37/coffee)
However, Original Filter Coffee was the shining star that retained its reputation (priced at Rs. 37 per cup). Staying true to the restaurant’s name, this brew stood out as a beacon of quality. If you’re a coffee connoisseur, prepare to be delighted by the rich and invigorating flavours that define this establishment.
Navigating the Experience
Parking can be a bit of a challenge, particularly for car owners seeking free space. In such cases, watch for nearby paid parking facilities that offer convenience.
