Desi Dosa Madras

Wow… How long it has been? Starting from BC Day long weekend (to those not in BC, that would be August 2nd), I have written only 4 (yes, four!!!) British Columbia related posts: Minoas Greek Taverna, Mui NgoGai, Kimura Japanese Restaurant and White Spot Pirate Pack Day. Yes, the remaining 25+ posts during that period to now are from either Edmonton, Seattle/Tacoma and Portland! Yes, I have travelled a lot in the last two or so months but, in perspective, I didn’t do so much in the first half of the year. For the rest of the year, I still have one more trip (I can’t disclose the location but, for simplicity purposes, let’s call it “Location G”) and, after that, I hope to travel to San Francisco in November….
Does that mean I have a long queue of Vancouver restaurants posts? Well, I do have a small queue but not that long. When I was back, I ended up only going to some usual places, mainly because I was so busy I couldn’t take my time to visit some other. (I did go to one here and there, though). But, most importantly, I was able to finally catch up with some people. For today’s particular post, I was able to catch up with my dear friend Mijune after a long time. Sure, I did drop some goods (namely, Voodoo Doughnut and Saint Honoré Boulangerie) but it was mostly drop some goods, taste and leave. (OK, not really but that’s the general idea). So, one night, I asked Mijune to show me her part of town. Alas, it seems she goes so often to Vancouver that visiting her part of town would have been Vancouver. No, I asked for the physical location instead! I was given many options but eliminated most of them based on the fact I have eaten similar cuisine while on the different trips. However, given the location, with a huge concentration of East Indian population, I thought, hey, why not exactly that? And, rather than the usual curries and what not, we ended up going for dosas, aka, southern East Indian cuisine instead. And that place was Desi Dosa Madras.
