Zev Siegl, the co-founder of Starbucks – the largest coffee chain in the world, went to try filter coffee and some South Indian food at Bengaluru’s Vidyarthi Bhavan. A plate of masala dosa and a cup of traditional filter coffee were enjoyed by Siegl. The South Indian vegetarian restaurant Vidyarthi Bhavan, which was founded in 1943 as a tiny students’ eatery, posted photos from his visit on Instagram.
Siegl was in Bengaluru to attend the Global Investors Meet 2022. He also wrote a note for the restaurant in its guest book. It read, “My friend, it is an honor to enjoy your famous food, coffee and warm welcome. I will take this wonderful experience with me back to Seattle. Thank you.” Siegl also added three stars to his note.
