So when I normally get Indian food, it means North Indian cuisine. Every once in a while, I’ll venture over to the South, and it’s usually good, but nothing too impressive. However, I went to a place in San Francisco called Dosa (around 21st and Valencia), and I can say it was one of the best meals I’ve had in SF.
We tried a few things, but the two things that stick out to me (and I’ll be going back for more) are the bhel puri and the pani puri.
Pani puri’s essentially a fried hollow crisp that you put some fillings inside of and then you put some tamarin sauce and then some green, watery hot sauce (yeah, I don’t actually remember what it’s all called). Here’s a similar pic:
The other oh-so delicious dish was bhel puri. It’s essentially just fried crisp, diced green mango, potatoes, tomatoes, onions & coriander. Again, quite good.
