SANTA FE, N.M. — Although this is one of my favorite restaurants in Santa Fe, I have never have tried the food that gives it its name.
A paper dosa is a very thin crepe of fermented rice and lentil batter. It always looks scary to me: longer than a forearm and rolled to fit around one.
I’ve seen many people enjoying them, dipping pieces in chutneys or sauces. It’s undoubtedly good if other items on the menu are any measure of what to expect. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve tasted here.
So it was a delight to introduce the restaurant to a friend. We chattered and shared our dishes through the evening, aided by a knowledgeable waiter who offered advice and paced the dishes just right. Also, we never felt pressured to leave as our talk kept us sitting there some time after we finished the food.
