Southern Indian cuisine

Ruth Lafler | Sep 27, 2001 06:50 PM

The other night I noticed that one of the Indian restaurants in Alameda (India Palace) says on its sign that it features southern Indian food. The other night at the Helmand dinner several people were talking about southern Indian food with affection and enthusiasm.

So I'm wondering: what is different/distinctive about southern Indian food? When I check this place out, what should I expect and what should I look for?

Any tips for the neophyte?
