Entering Bikanervala felt like entering a brightly-lit school canteen 12 Reviews
Entering Bikanervala felt like entering a brightly-lit school canteen. The sparse clientele all seemed to be nursing private sorrows and the screeching baby behind us only added to the general air of depression. My friend ordered the onion kulcha with dal and raita, while I plumped for an onion utappam and a couple of fresh juices. When the food arrived, served directly on dingy steel trays accompanied by bored-looking salad garnishes, hunger seemed to slip away. Still we dug in. My friend’s dal was heavily salted and almost impossible to eat, while my uttappam was a large thin potato cake, with onion and coriander pressed in. As we finished, a waiter appeared with our fruit juices. ‘You want?’ he enquired anxiously. We needn’t have bothered, my apple juice was tepid and watery. A visit to the filthy bathroom rounded off an uninspiring meal.
