This one used to be a usual haunt for me a few years back, but somehow, with the appearance of so many adda joints around, it got sidelined for months and years. This is the place which made me fall in love with tea, and made me understand that it is so much more than a syrupy hot brown liquid.
Today when i visited Dolly’s after years together, the place greeted me just like it used to. As I sat down in my favourite corner, a rehydrating shot of cold water with salt and sugar was given to me, along with a cool wet tissue to wipe off the sweat and grime. This was such a wonderful gesture in the sweltering heat of summer afternoons, that I instantly fell in love with them once again.
I am a sucker for their Corny-Cheesy Sandwich and also their Orange Julep. But I decided to order something new, from the almost unchanged menu.
The Peppermint Lemon Ice-Tea is the perfect nectar if you need some rejuvenation. But you might just consider specifying how sweet you want it to be, because otherwise some people will find it a little too much on the sweeter side. I had their Coconut Iced Tea, and it tasted as good as it looked. I had asked to make it without any sugar, but the sweetness of the coconut water went wonderfully well with the tea.
And oh my god, I just can’t stop thinking about their ham pasta! Not a very orthodox pasta, but no less tastier than them. And the best part of it is that, the amount of ham is more than the amount of pasta. Yes, the portion size is not very generous, but then again, the melting chunks of cheese make up for it!
As I left this place, I made a mental note to visit this place more often once again.
