Udupi Palace opened yesterday in SF, a block away from Dosa. The menu looks very similar to their Sunnyvale location. Prices seem to be about a dollar higher than in the South Bay. Dosas are priced mostly at $7.75, Uthappams at $6.75.

Mr. cat and I had a Dosa combo deal that offers choice of dosa or uthappam with an idly and vada for $9.75.

I chose Special Rava Masala Dosa and Mr. Cat chose the Mysore Masala Dosa.

The dosas along with the idly and vada came with three kinds of chutneys--a mint, coconut chutney, a plain coconut chutney and a tomato-onion chutney---and a cup of sambar.

The Rava Masala Dosa was nice and crisp and the myore masala had a tangy, sour chutney spread inside the dosa. The potato stuffing in both were great, though I would liked it a little more spicy.

The vada was crispy and the idli soft but a little dry. They should be able to work those kinks out in the next few days.

I think they seem to be really going easy on the spice. Still the dosas tasted great, clean and very homey.

The place looks nice, clean and has a really friendly wait staff. I think its a great and much more reasonably priced alternative to its neighbor, Dosa.

And oh yeah, they only serve vegetarian food and no alcohol.
