Sri Lakshmi Venkateshwara canteen or idli Hotel. A dozen of them scattered across Bangalore, they are simply called SLV.

The fare generally consists of hot-hot idlis, vadas, upmas, chitranna. They are mainly well known for Idlis and tasty but waaaaatery chutney. They generously splash a mugful of chutney on idlis drowning them completely.

SLV along with SLN ( Sri Lakshmi Janardhana ) is also a name of choice for a few dozen Iyengar Bakeries, of Bangalore.

Usage

SLV idlis are best eaten at SLV canteen itself. If you parcel those idlis, you wont get and savor the waaatery chutney.

No more he is called that way as a grown man.
