***CURRY-DIVING: An Invitation to Woodlands, 11/23, and beyond

Melanie for The Masala Hounds | Nov 22, 200309:25 PM

We have a couple slots still available for TOMORROW’s lunch at Woodlands and shopping crawl – details below. Now that we know that Udupi Palace (across the street from Woodlands) has paan, we’ll stop there too.

Upcoming curry-dives are in the works for Ajanta and Naan ‘n’ Curry. Please stay tuned for further announcements.

Sunday, Nov. 23, 1:00pm – Lunch at WOODLANDS Restaurant (39203 Cedar Blvd, Newark, 510-494-9727)

Woodlands offers the highly spiced and vivid vegetarian cuisine of South India. In addition to lunch, Alexandra also promises some interesting grocery and sweet stops after lunch -

"There's an Indian market just a couple doors down from Woodlands that sounds good. The Afghani market I'm interested in is on Fremont Blvd. near Salang Pass, but there's another one in a strip mall off of Mission (I think) which also contains an Indian sweet shop!"

Email your hostess, Alexandra Singer,, to reserve your space.
