Give Southern Indian Vegetarien a Try

Hey All, After recieving three emails today telling me that Wednesday was a bad day for them, and not getting any yes RSVPS yet, I've changed this meetup/dinner to Thursday. From a Northern Ohio Live Review a few years Back Named for the city on the west coast of southern India, Udupi Cafe serves the region's vegetarian fare in a setting illustrated with stories of gods and their consorts; a bronze Ganesha, the elephant-headed son of the god Shiva, hangs in the entranceway, lovingly bedecked with a circle of silk flowers. Despite limiting itself to vegetarian options, Udipi's menu offers a wide selection of dishes. There are more than a dozen types of dosai (an Indian crÉpe); the masala dosai comes with potatoes and onions in a wrap so large it overtakes the plate. Served with soothing coconut chutney and hot-and-spicy sambar, it blends heat and cool into a satisfying meal. The rasam soup is billed as ""sour and spicy"" - consider yourself warned, and have bread and yogurt on hand to accompany this delicious but nearly searing experience. Desserts are exotic: The Madras special payasam cooks thread-fine vermicelli in milk and honey with raisins and cashews, served pleasantly warm with complex, spicy flavors. We haven't done a dinner in a while, so I figure what the heck. Look out for upcoming festivals in the next month with yet another GReek Fest, and Oktoberfest (yeah a little early but what the hell) and an Egyptian Festival.
