Royal South Indian Thali

Given the choice between the new Madras and Udipi Cafe, I prefer Udipi. I really love their thalis and the menu has a great mix of Southern Indian specialties. There is a lunch buffet ($6.95 during the week and $8.95 on weekends), but you can also order off the menu. I chose to order off the menu and grabbed a Royal South Indian Thali ($12.50). The thali comes with aromatic white rice, flaky poori, sambar, dhal, kootu, avial, poriyal, rasam, curd, deliciously sour chunks of pickled lemons, papad and a wonderfully sweet payasam. It was superb and filling without weighing me down.

Being the glutton that I am, I had to have a taste of the coconut rava masal dosai. The dosai are huge and expertly prepared. I really liked the bits of caramelized onion embedded in the crust. The fillings–especially the golden potato and shredded coconut in this one–are always well-seasoned and satisfying. Great spot for lunch and close to Your Dekalb Farmer’s Market so you can kill two birds with one stone. I wish I lived closer!

    It’s the chana batura (chickpeas with puffy bread) and the coconut rice that keep me coming back to Udipi!

    The food was greasy and awful, the service sucked. This place is a dump.
