Food At Diveagar - Suhas Bapat Khanaval

A beach located approx 200 Kms south of Mumbai on the Konkan Coast known as Diveagar which is near the Harihareshwar and Shrivardhan. Not going to talk about this place but about the food we ate, for the details of the place it will come up soon on this blog.

Reached there around 11 am after a good 5+ hours of driving our lunch was at Suhas Bapat's Khanaval which was suggested by many bloggers and locals as well. The place is located just before Marathi School and 5 minute walk from MTDC. The most important thing about these places is you cannot just land over there and order your food make sure you call atleast 2 hours before so they cook accordingly.

We reached the place at 2 pm after dipping and playing in the nice and cool water. The place is nothing much to write about and you can miss it if you drive by it. So keep on asking the locals where the place is.
The entry is a big courtyard going towards a big shade where there are tables and chairs set up and Aunties serving food to the travelers/tourist. Get yourself comfortable and sit the plates will come and aunties will start serving you the food with a smile first comes the spicy green chutney which I did not try as I know my body and tongue cannot handle it, then the salads, then salt, then Jack Fruit Vegetable which I had for the first time, then Aloo Capsicum vegetable, Poli (which is sweet roti) and Dal

Everything was top notch and felt like I was having home food, wait, yes it was home food but cooked in large quantity. And everything was unlimited and aunties served us like their own kid not making us wait for anything. I must have had around 8 polis, I think and lots of Jack Fruit Vegetable. And to top it off we had told them create the special modak which was made of maida, jaggery and coconut.

And after having so much we were so satisfied and could not walk. And now to the best part cost of the unlimited awesome thali was on Rs.  60
So if you are at Diveagar this place should not be missed and also the most important part this place is open only for LUNCH!
