Foodie Friday: South India

I had never had South Indian food. I did my normal Zagat search before Wednesday night's dinner with an amazing event planner. My criteria for a restaurant was: location (I wanted something close to our pre-dinner event, excellent food (life is too short to eat bad food), and reasonable (value makes good food taste better). Sometimes I sacrifice vibe and decor for value and a culinary adventure. This search led me to Saravanaas

Chicken Tikka Masala or Saag Paneer are not South Indian, instead they serve Dosas. I did not know what a Dosa was.

Dosas are a Southern Indian delicacy. It is basically a crepe made from rice and black lentils. It is a typical South Indian dish, eaten for breakfast or dinner, and is rich in carbohydrates and protein. (From Wikipedia)

The food is interesting, delicious, SPICY and flavorful. Go this weekend, you will not miss the meat and the vegetarians in your life will thank you.
