Dosa on Valencia
Dosa on Valencia Review
Like Indian food but crave more than chicken tikka masala and naan? Dosa is your answer. This temple of South Indian cuisine, done in cheerful tones of tangerine and turmeric, serves not only the large, thin savory pancake for which it is named, but also curries, uttapam (open-face pancakes), and various starters, breads, rice dishes, and chutneys. You can select from about 10 different dosa fillings, ranging from traditional potatoes, onions, and cashews to spinach and fennel stems. Each comes with tomato and fresh coconut chutneys and sambar (lentil curry) for dipping. Tamil lamb curry with fennel and tomatoes and poppy seed prawns are popular, as are starters like Chennai chicken (chicken marinated in yogurt and spices and lightly fried), and the new Indian street-food additions, like vada pav (a vegetarian slider). The wine and beer lists are top drawer, and both include some Indian labels; the cocktail list is also very food friendly. Weekend brunch offers a nice change from the usual brunch suspects (the flavorful pani puri are a must). Queues for this Mission District spot convinced the owners to open a second, splashier branch on the corner of Fillmore and Post in Japantown.
