House of Dosas

April 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

House of Dosas, Vancouver House of Dosas, Vancouver

When we feel like indian food but don’t want to commit to a larger heavier meal, we often go to House of Dosas. This south indian restaurant specializes in dosas, which are like an extra-large super thin and crispy chickpea-flour crepe that comes filled with your choice of filling. The fillings range from palak paneer (spinach and paneer – what I would describe as the indian equivalent of tofu) to a seafood vindaloo. Every dosa comes with a side of delicious coconut and carrot chutney as well as a small bowl of lentil curry soup.

Aside from dosas, this restaurant is also known for its chicken 65 appetizer. The name “chicken 65” is said to come from the number of days required to prepare the marinade or the year of the dish’s creation. It is a spicy appetizer of deep-fried chicken which is delicious. We have also tried the curries which are good but really people go to this restaurant for the dosas.

The decor is plain and simple – this is an eating not dining establishment. There are also a few large screen televisions scattered around the room so people can catch the latest cricket game. The service is fast, friendly and helpful.
