India Sweets & Spices in Glendale NEVER AGAIN

fromberkeleytolosangeles | Jun 24, 200708:01 PM     14

I just returned home from my fourth and final attempt to understand why people like India Sweets and Spices. I love south Indian food, and I've eaten excellent masala dosa from Berkeley to Fremont to Chatsworth to Artesia. I just don't understand what they are doing at India Sweets & Spices to ruin one of the world's greatest snacks. Tonight my husband and I were craving dosa but didn't want to drive all the way to Chatsworth from Silverlake, so we decided to give IS&S one more try. The last time we were there are dal was cold and our poori tasted like they had been in the fridge for a week and I swore I would never go back.

I ordered the Masala dosa and he got the Mysore dosa and they were both borderline inedible. The dosa itself was thin and greasy, the dal was incredibly salty, the red condiment was basically Heinz 57 with some curry powder. The coconut chutney was really chalky.

And, even though there were only three other people there, when our dosas came up, the women behind the counter let them sit there for way too long before they ladled out our dal, chutney,etc. so that by the time we actually got them they were totally soggy.

Believe, it's worth the drive to Chatsworth for Woodlands or to Artesia for Udupi. India Sweets and Spices is really terrible.
