Satwa is called the Little Philippines since most Filipinos live here. Most of the restaurants here are Filipino or Arabic. It’s dense with cafeteria and fast food chains. If you are craving for Masala Dosa, only few restaurants will pop on . One of which is Chennai Park, it is one of the few Indian restaurants in Satwa that serves reasonable priced Indian food.
We ordered Masala Dosa. As per Zomato this is what people loved here, but I do not really see or taste anything special besides the triangular shaped dosa which is usually cylinder. Its a crisp dosa with yellow potato filling or bhaji. The bhaji taste like something that babies can eat, it’s a bit bland but it will taste better once dipped in the chutney or sambar. Dosa is even more enjoyable with lip-smacking chutneys that accompanies it. A flavorful chutney requires fresh ingredients, especially the coconut. Usually chutney is thick and with grated coconut. As you can see on the picture, the consistency is almost the same as sambar. The chutney is tasty, but very watery. I cannot scoop it off my plate. Their masala dosa is as what you will expect of a dosa. There is nothing bad to say but there is also nothing that can make me say wow.
This is the first time I am eating Onion Dosa. When I saw it I thought it was an empty dosa. When I tore a portion of it, it’s filled with onions, curry leaves and a little bit of green chilies. This made me say wow. The onion filling was properly sautéed that made the taste of each ingredient blend excellently. It is best with the white coconut chutney. It gives a richer taste to the onion dosa, adding flavor to the curry leaves and taming the spiciness of the green chili.
Both dosas are only AED 7.00, for the price it is worth it. The chutneys can be made better if it’s thicker since chutneys in Tamil Nadu are usually thicker because of Pottukadalai or Roasted Bengal Gram which is almost always added to coconut chutney. I am rating Chennai Park 3/5.
