Dakshin Revisited -- Hyderabadi Food in Edison, NJ

Four friends and I ate at Deccani again and had another wonderful meal.

We shared many of the same appetizers that I loved so much the first time (the baked & seasoned corn, Chicken 65, and Chilli Chicken), but we tried some other dishes.

The two highlights for me were theDum Ke Gobhi, wonderfully spiced cauliflower with garlic and other herbs, and the Machi ka Saalan, catifh cooked in onion puree, yogurt, and spices. Others were partisans of the Mirchi ka saalan, green chilies in a sauce that didn't taste at all like the catfish sauce, but was described the same way. The chicken biriyani was fine, but not as flavorful as the goat biriyani from the last trip. The only disappointment was thechicken marinated in cheese and spices and then roasted in the tandoor.

We also had a couple of dosas from the sister restaurant next door. The "crepe" was a little thicker than most, and was pleasantly sour. The usual accompaniments were much better than usual, especially the coconut chutney. I'd love to try more dishes there.

I couldn't convince my friends to order more than one dessert. The Double ka Meetha, bread pudding, was great.
