Dasaprakash--go south young man

Ken Hoffman | Apr 2, 2003 01:48 PM

Dasaprakash, a temple of South Indian cooking, sits like a forelorn beacon of grandeur in an improvished and partly abandoned commercial strip dead except for a very busy Taco Bell drive through.

A curious location no doubt, maybe a signal of what could be.

Channa Bhatura: puffy fried bread accompanied by a garbonzo stew ( they call it soup but it's not) that has a delicate balance of warm and fragrent flavors. topped with red onion. The highlight of the meal.

Vegetable Samosa: Inside are a multitude of minimally processed vegetables, easily identifiable by tatste, color and texture. Scrumptous pastry skin, baked to a pale brown.

Masala Dosai: I thought I was in Paris. A giant (12 inch) sweet crepe with concentric white and brown markings cuddling a smallish mound of mildly flavored pureed potato. A thin marsala sauce poured over the puree finished the dish.

Potato Bonda: Potato fritters really, a little soggy and flavorless.

Wonderful decor, very attentive service since the place was sadly empty.
