Thanks Susan and Anthony for your roast duck recs for my last posting. Did end up having a great "two-part" duck at Sang Kee which my b-day bud loved, but I'll be sure to check out Lakeside (which I hear raves about their dim sum) and Ting Fong soon. Good 'n' cheap!...that's why I love Philly's Chinatown.

So-- for my next conquest, I've recently been turned on to the cuisines of South India (Kerala, Tamil, etc.) which are less heavy and more complex than their northern counterparts, in my opinion. Wondering if anyone knows of a good store/market in Philly to get Indian foodstuffs-- need curry leaves, ghee, asafoetida and good coconut for starters...

And, for that matter-- are there any Philly restaurants that serve South Indian grub, like sambars and dals, not just your typical tandoori buffet fare?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
