BEST SOUTH INDIAN (kinda far,SO worth it )

If you adore south Indian cuisine (my favorite food) take a little drive to Trooper,( 5 minutes
outside of Norristown) and get DELICIOUS dosas, (several authentic types,no fusion, no mozzraella,peanut butter or arugula dosa here thank the Gods) and all other manner of south Indian dishes. Many different chats, FANTASTIC breads, uthappam, you name it. They also have several biryanis and rice dishes, weekend specials ,delicious chutneys and sambar. All made to order ,fresh, fresh fresh !

Here is the websight: http://www.dosahutchathouse.net/ which is a little fancified, the place is so down home, cheap and DELICIOUS. Some Indian friends turned me on, I will love them forever ! Many Indian folks eat here, no wonder !!!!!!!

I love that the web sight warns you in such lovely flowery language: "If you are a neophyte to Indian cuisine, or particularly delicate of disposition, my advice would be to stipulate "mild" in no uncertain terms. This will give you the full benefits of the kitchen's incomparable seasonings, provide just a tantalizing touch of heat, and significantly reduce the danger of any possible peristaltic reprisals." Pretty great menu prose !
