If you are feeling hungry on the way to Mysore from Bangalore and or viceversa consider stopping at Thotada Mane. A lovely quiet and homely place where materials have been reused skillfully. Tyres used as washbasins, cycle handlebars on sea-saws and traditional things kept tastefully to enrich the ambience. Old posters of hindi movies and one of Kishore Kumar made me smile. Even the rest room is buit with bamboo. Green all over would be an apt saying. The kid and his cousin had a grand time playing there
Their garden had some amazing vegetables and one of the best fresh organic baby tomatoes I had.
Had the Akki roti with a spicy chutney that made my palate sing. The chutney had a hit of ginger and chillies that could kickstart your dying senses into a roll. Absolutely brilliant. This is one dish that one can keep eating without any limit of you have the time. Absolutely briliant. I also loved the ragi roti with the same chutney. washed it all down with an exquisitie glass of coffee. Strong exactly as I like it. The service was friendly and impeccable.
The dosa was average and can be skipped. Just search for Thotada Mane in Gmaps and you will be guided.
