I came here with rocket high expectations and this place still managed to surpass it. I love Indian food and I was really impressed with everything I had. From the vadas to the crispy, buttery laced dosa, we were indeed brought on a gastronomic journey.
We were lucky to have our Indian friend with us who graciously explained to us about the country's culture and food. The table was filled with oohs and aahs from the enlightment of our tastebuds and the knowledge that Indian food takes time, and heart to prepare & we could taste it that afternoon.
Aside from the famed dosa, I would strongly recommend the vada which was so crunchy on the outside yet remained light and fluffy on the inside. The mango lassi as well, brought our meal to a gentle, sweet end (plus they use real mango pulp!).
Go with an open mind and order whatever looks good because, chances are, it would.
Thank you @sidhartha91 for the culinary education. Very much worth the rave. MUST TRY!
Had been craving my "Indian Risotto" - Bisibele Bhath ($5) even since the first time I had it here. So so flavourful that comes with thin crackers that goes so wonderfully well with it (gave it an additional balance). Can't help but order the Egg Plant Rice ($5) as it is Friday 😋Loved it while someone muttered "my favourite....my favourite" while digging into her Masala Dosa ($6) 😂
Back at MTR and feeling like having something new led us to this recommended dish of dal and rice cooked in tamarin and spice powders. 🙌
Looooooved this! Wahah, that in the middle is ghee which you mix in. 😂There's even crackers on the side which you can dip into the creamy and super fragrant rice mix! It really felt like a creamy, spicy risotto! Easily my second fav dish at MTR now (next to the masala dosa, of course 😝).
Posting this throwback after seeing (and loving) Jayne's awesome get-up at last night's Burpple Christmas Partaye. Yes, her human dosa even came complete with chutneys! Anyways, this Masala Dosa is the ultimate. And it is huuuuge; definitely substantial for one person. I'd underestimated that and ordered their eggplant rice as well. Had to pack the rice in the end ☺️
What set this dosa apart is its crispy texture, which wasn't paper-thin and had a nice bite to it. A buttery aroma (oh gleeful ghee) permeated the entire shell which housed soft spiced potato filling, turning the humble dosa into an indulgent, and very satisfying treat.
The chili powder in the Pudi Masala Dosa ($6) made it super shiok! But my favourite is this the normal Masala Dosa for that amazing crisp shell! Still my favourite dish here! Still so so yummy, the fragrance of the ghee come up so well (if you don't know how it's like, it actually smelt and tasted like cheese!). Perfect Dosa with perfect Masala potatoes 😌
Brinjal Rice ($6) - This was a special dish (available only on Tuesdays & Friday) was simply amazing - so so flavourful! Especially coming from me when I don't even like brinjal!
So so coming here again for more!
Finally got to try the legendary MTR that I've been hearing about non-stop in office and I AM CONVINCED!
The masala dosa is a crispy package of satisfaction, comfort and indulgence all wrapped into one! So crisp on the outside, pancake-y on the inside and dunked into the curries made for a meal that had me smiling all the way through. 😛
Learnt many thing while dining here - the Super efficient and clean environment and random facts like Pudi = powder (chili powder in this case).

My all time favourite dosa, I have this every year on my birthday, and many times in between. The potato filling is tasty and soft, while the dosa is so crisp and smells irresistibly of fragrant ghee. This is a meal I urge you all to try!

A special on Tuesdays and Fridays, don't miss this if you're here on those days! So super flavorful rice with creamy eggplants, a great dish to share.
Located just a few minutes' walk from City Square Mall (nearest MRT: Farrer Park), this constantly buzzy joint serves what we believe to be the best dosas in Singapore. They've nailed the familiar Masala Dosa ($6) with a crisp, ghee-fragrant exterior, tasty spiced potato filling and piquant chutneys on the side. Burppler Jayne Tan loves how she can distinctly taste fermented rice and black lentils in every bite. For the more adventurous dosa connoisseur, we highly recommend going for the Pudi Masala Dosa ($6.50), an open-faced pancake that is soft and spongy, yet browned and crisp on the bottom. Sprinkled with spicy chutney powder (it tastes very umami-ish, almost cheesy) and topped with a small mound of potato, this is one filling vegetarian dish! If it's your first time here, order both our recommended dosas to have the best of both worlds! Pro tip: This place fills up fast for dinner, so visit earlier at around 6pm (they begin dinner service at 5:30pm) and be prepared to share your table with strangers.
Avg Price: $10 per person

($6.40) However, I failed and ended up still pointing lamely at the menu.
Was kinda intimated by the large weekend crowd there but I'm glad I braved it all and was rewarded with the best Thosai/Dosa (tasted even better today, ordering it myself 😌)!! Definite big love for that crisp yet moist exterior, good with or without the sauces. Stuffed with that perfect addictive masala potatoes. This was so good, my non-Indian food lover friend, adore it too!! Thosai Mama @iamjaynedoe will be so proud 😂 We'll be back for moarrrrr ✌🏻️ #BurppleBestIndian
This is the best masala dosai i have ever had, its like food from the heavens and indian food could possibly turn me into a vegan. Its crispy and the fillings are generous, the sauces are amazing. This is one happy and filling meal, can i have this near my area? The environment is airconditioned & small and its really clean. There is no GST but there is service charge. Paid $6.40! Soo worth it 😍😍 #BurppleCheapNGood
