My brother-in-law, who is from Kathiawar, introduced me to south Indian cuisine. While most typical restaurant Indian food is from northern India, south Indian cuisine has a whole different set of preparations and tastes including the most delicious crepe-like creation, the dosa.
So when my sister asked me the other day if I’d like to join them for dinner at Dosa Temple, the new south Indian restaurant in Somerville, I couldn’t say no. Located on Somerville Ave between Porter and Union – right near Market Basket – Dosa Temple has been open for just over a month. The reviews on Yelp are exemplary and the food was delicious. Fresh, tasty, and all vegetarian! So in the spirit of supporting local businesses, as well as trying a cuisine you may not already be familiar with, check out Dosa Temple. I highly recommend the Temple Special Thali (pictured below) for a sampling of several different dishes.
