Respond to Review of Udipi Cafe - Hillcroft
Review: It's true..I crave tamarind chutney on a daily basis...I actually dream about tamarind chutney. The tamarind chutney here is (8 times out of 10) outta sight! They have a buffet during the week (lunch hours) and on the weekends. I visit this place on a nearly weekly basis. They have a good buffet variety, and there's always a helpful fellow who let's me know which items are vegan safe (I pretty much know which are and aren't now, but he's there to help you if you're a new customer). Their rasam and sambar are spicy and addictive. The dosas are fast becoming my favorite in town (especially the sada mysore). The food tastes fresh and always has a good amount of spiciness. I've eaten Indian food all over town, and in many other cities - they tend to pale in comparison to Udipi. I really like this place and think the drive is worth it. They also sell snacks at the register most are vegan..most are worth it..especially the yellow ball dessert things. They don't have a label on them..so I can't remember the name. I spoke with the owner and he listed all the ingredients in it for me (VEGAN) and when I'm heading out I buy a bag. Oh and the prices..are super goooood - it runs about $8 a person. You get a dosa and as many trips to the buffet as your little stomach can handle.
