Coming home to Vaishali

Family Favourite - VaishaliWith Vaishali here
there's nothing to fear.
No morning bustle
or breakfast to rustle
as the family favourite is near.

(Mantra of housewives in and around F C College Road)

Avinash Joshi is a regular. He has been coming to Vaishali for over 25 years now. Earlier he used to accompany his father. Now Gaurav, his 7 year old son, is a more than a willing partner. Like the Joshis, there are several other families where generations are known to have visited or continFamily Cornerue to visit this friendly neighbourhood joint with abiding regularity. Established in 1956 by Mahabala Shetty, presently the premises are being astutely managed by his nephew Jaganath Shetty. A regular Udipi joint that specialises in South Indian snacks, the atmosphere inside is like one big happy joint family chatting over their Sunday lunch. Everybody seems to know everyone here and all appear to be on a high after guzzling the sizzling Sambhar.

"Masti" CornerThe section you initially enter is clean and well lit, with normal table and sofa seating arrangements. Customers who wish to simply eat and scoot settle for this section. The regulars gravitate towards the open  air section. Here's where the action is. During the day, it resembles a college canteen with youngsters prancing around the place, listening to music, copying notes, guffawing and even  flying rockets made from the paper napkins artistically placed in glasses. According to Manager Saddhu Shetty, the dishes are reasonably priced in order to continue drawing the student crowd. They do not, in other words, wish to earn a 'pricey' label and make it inaccessible to their favourite 'junta'.


AmrapaliEvening is the time for families to troop in. There is a 'family corner''  tucked away on one side and a "smoking corner" on the other, but there is major 'tucking away' happening in all corners. And if you suddenly hear a youngster scream 'SPDP, ASAP' do not be startled. It's just an order for Shev Potato Dahi Puri to be brought pronto!
