These photos from globetrotter diaries have me drooling all over my desk. When I was a teenager in Las Vegas we used to have the best South Indian place. The Dosa Den was a total hole in the wall but f*ck they made the best dosas. And there was another dish that was to die for. But I have no idea what it was. They closed down years ago (like, 10?) but oddly a google search pulls up many references. Which makes some small part of me wishfully think they are still out there, somewhere.

I haven't found a dosa that compares yet.

I hate unrequited food cravings.

  3. I would recommend Banana Leaf in Hillcrest...if their food was as good as I'd hoped. :/ BUT...you might like it more than I did.

  4. So, kind of like a savory Indian cannoli?
    I love Indian food but have never run across these.
    My craving of the day is a banh mi from K's Sandwiches.

  7. I second the Hampton Chutney Co. in NYC - just seeing those pics made me have a mad craving.

    Sigh. Need an excuse to head back east for a trip...

  12. My fiance is south indian, so i'm used to his mother's world-class dosas, but the only acceptable subsitute is Paru's in Hollywood. Definitely check it out. You won't be disappointed (and the decor is amazing too)!
