When Hubby and I had planned on a vacation to Canada, we did not think that we were going to have an authentic South Indian food with home made taste and also rustic in Vancouver!! But we did find such a place and it is called Chutney villa!
True to its name the place had amazing chutneys to welcome us. The menu was nothing less than a feast, their specials being village feast consisting of all the yummy delicacies from the villages in South India to an authentic dosa-coffee sunday breakfast. Just seeing the items offered on the village feast made our mouths water as it was the food we used to eat when we were in India.
We decided to try egg dosa, vegetable korma with egg and a traditional thali. The thali had rice, kara kozhambu, rasam, vadai and payasam. Each dish was served with a chutney to increase the taste of the meal. Earlier I had my doubts about mixing chutney with kara kozhambu but the combination was made in heaven. They also serve the madras special marina beach style "Thenga Manga Sundal". Give it a try and you will feel like you are in your relatives house and not in a restaurant.
Verdict: Should visit atleast once for the variety of chutneys offered.
