In Kolkata, the lanes of Lake Market hold a special place in the hearts of people who love their idlis and their dosas. Traditional South Indian cuisine is incomplete without the crispy dosas and the fluffy idlis.
Bhavik Singhania and Aryaman Kejriwal, owners of Mission Cafe, think that this underrated cuisine should have more exposure in every nook and corner of Kolkata. Their restaurant is famous for the iconic Chola Bhatura for the past four decades, and they thought that it was time for the idli and sambar to shine. So they organised the first ever Dosa festival in Kolkata, bringing the South Indian cuisine to the forefront.
Dosa festival in Kolkata, for the first time ever.

Mission Cafe is dishing out an array of different varieties of dosas at the Dosa festival in Kolkata. And hey, they’re not your regular masala dosas! They’re dosas with a twist!
Some of them are:
Triple chilli dosa
Veg mayo dosa
Chilli paneer dosa
Teeka Mushroom cheese paneer dosa
Garlic cheese dosa
Mustard magic dosa, and more
Idlis start from INR 80 and Dosas from INR 120
“We wanted to bring South Indian cuisine to the limelight with the help of a few innovative cooking techniques, just to grab people’s attention,”
says Bhavik Singhania.
The menu has been curated to suit the office-going crowd as well as families, especially from Salt Lake. Though Mission Cafe serves Chinese and basic Italian other than south Indian, they are strictly vegetarian, with no onion or garlic.
So what are you waiting for? If sambar excites you more than pizza, head over to Salt Lake and dig into 8 different kinds of dosas and 2 varities of idlis!
