Southern Vegetarian Indian?

Have you tried the refrigerated dosa mix from the various Indian grocers?

Southern Vegetarian Indian?

Actually, I meant Udupi which was what it was named before it got sold and became Nalapak. Udupi was under 10 bucks and it was way better than Nalapak. But it doesn't matter anyway they're both gone.

Don't hold your breath for good dosa here. Bawarchi is the best. Dosa King was good when it first opened, as was Nalapak, and India Cafe about eight years ago. India Cafe has changed hands at least twice and the last time I went I ordered rava dosa and they put some cilantro and onions in a regular dosa and tried to pass it off as rava dosa.

Best Indian/South Asian in the Twin Cities: Please Nominate

Bawarchi has the best South Indian in town. In fact I think it has the best Indian food in town.

Many kinds of Dosa, your option of having a Dosa crispy or spongy. Three different chutneys and sambar to go with that.

Big Bowl Rest./@Galleria Edina: WHAT A RIP OFF!!!!

Well, yeah, I guess.

Big Bowl, adopting the beloved McModel, has effectively disempowered each and every employee while holding them accountable for three cents in food cost.

Actually he is special. In my hiring days I would look for people who cared about people, not so much the food, that was the easy part. If you really cared about people you wouldn't send out a bad plate.

You got so burned. I hope you are a fast learner.

Seriously, sorry this happened. One would think their conscience would kick in.

Travail Wait Times on a Friday Night

I would suggest one person get there early to stand in line while the others park the car. I like the seats by the window and you might want to get there 45 minutes ahead of time.

Congratulations to your friend, that is one thick document.

Can anyone suggest a place to purchase excellent naan?

The best Indian flatbreads are IMO from Everest on Grand. The naan are light, puffy, crispy outside, and twice as big as the average naan.

But you know naan should be eaten fresh out of the tandoor or else it just becomes chewy flatbread.

I must apologize DB. I did not mean to toss around credentials, and I do understand your point about a vocal minority. It's a pointless discussion now anyway.

I was executive sous chef at the Oakridge CC. Getting it right is giving a damn.

Crossroads seems to do quite well. Guess what I'm saying is when the subset gets large enough you ought to take notice. It's up to a restaurant to figure out what's large enough I guess.

That is true in every business. My understanding of "not as good as" in the restaurant business is that it is at the very least good.

I cannot believe this happened. Food is so simple. It is done properly or not, and there are no secrets. Use basic cooking techniques, adapt it to the flow of your restaurant, and then add your own personal touch.

It was not a small subset of people who couldn't chew their meat at this place.

Thanks for the reminder, I'm gonna have to give them a call.

Resturant help!

Nicollet Avenue, also known as Eat Street is straight south just across the highway.

I like Vincent's prix fixe lunch menu, and Brit's pub for, well, dunno, just like it.
