Yummy Dosa is a street-style food joint that has two outlets in Dubai – one in Karama and a new outlet, which recently opened in Discovery Gardens. We were invited to review the new outlet in Discovery Gardens, which serves over 99 varieties of dosas, Indian-Chinese food, pasta, sizzlers, and lots more.
Video review in Tamil below:
Once you enter the outlet in Discovery Gardens, you will find its interiors cool and chic. The outlet is spread over 1200 square feet, with a seating capacity of 60 people, and since it is the post-COVID environment we are living in, proper social distancing and other health and safety guidelines were being followed.
While the name of the restaurant is Yummy Dosa, the menu card had lots of other varieties of food. From Indo-Chinese cuisines such as Triple Schezwan Rice, Manchow Soup, Paneer Fried Rice, Spiced Schezwan Noodles, and Wok-Tossed Veggies, to pasta and sizzlers.
For this review, we ordered Open Cheese Pizza Dosa, Vegetable Manchurian (Dry), Triple Schezwan Rice Combo, Classic Mojito, Kiwi Mojito, and Chocolate Brownie Sizzler for dessert. The Classic Mojito was made of lime and mint and it was very refreshing to drink. It had a nice minty punch to it and would really be enjoyed during the summer months.
The Kiwi Mojito was equally refreshing, though I liked the Classic Mojito better. The Vegetable Manchurian (Dry) was really delicious – it was made with vegetable balls stir-fried in a Manchurian-style gravy. We ordered the dry variant as a starter, though a semi-gravy variant is also available that will go well as an accompaniment with fried rice.
Next up was the Triple Schezwan Fried Rice Combo – this type of fried rice is known to be spicy. You can let the person taking your order know the level of spiciness you need in the Schezwan Fried Rice and they will adjust the spiciness accordingly. The Combo came with the Schezwan Fried Rice, a Spicy Vegetable Schezwan Manchurian Gravy, and Fried Noodles.
The moment I took the first bite, I was instantly transported to the Nariman Point area of Mumbai, which is very famous for street-style Indo-Chinese food. The combination of the Schezwan Fried Rice with the Schezwan Manchurian Gravy was an explosion of various flavours.
And it was time to taste the Open Cheese Pizza Dosa. The dosa had a topping of mixed vegetables laid upon an Indian-style sauce. Even though the dish was called Open Cheese Pizza Dosa, I am glad they didn’t go with the pizza sauce as the base and decided to add an Indian twist instead. All of the vegetables were further covered by cheese.
The Open Cheese Pizza Dosa was served with coconut chutney and tomato chutney. The accompaniment of the chutney with the dosa was the right combination and it tasted yummy (pun unintended). And finally, we finished off our lunch with the Chocolate Brownie Sizzler, which was essentially a large brownie topped with vanilla ice cream, served on a sizzler plate with chocolate syrup on the side. The Chocolate Brownie Sizzler was heavenly and chocolate lovers would indeed love it.
Overall our experience at Yummy Dosa was excellent. The ambiance was cool and the food was delicious. You should definitely check Yummy Dosa out if you are craving Mumbai street-style food!
