I’d been watching for a few weeks as a generic dirty German bar closed down and signs for a vegetarian Indian restaurant were put up. It didn’t seem particularly stylish or swanky, but most of the best places around the main station in Frankfurt are the ones that don’t look that nice.
The new restaurant is Saravana Bhavan and it’s my new favourite restaurant.
It’s always a good sign when a restaurant serving food from far away places is full of people from that place. I was the only white person in the place for most of the time when we finally visited, and the food got the boyfriend’s thumb of approval for being authentic.
But omg. This food is so good. So so good. On the menu there are long lists of dosas, which are filled pancakes, but they have two thali taster plates too. The photo at the start of this post is the northern Indian thali, and the photo below is the southern.
My favourite is the southern thali. It is SO good. And even has a yummy little dessert with it!
