Even after eating at this little Indian food trailer, I still don’t really know what a “dosa” is.
It’s been a while since I’ve tried something new, so I went to the trailer park on South Congress and ordered the Crispy Holy Cow with carrots, lettuce, and cheese.
You get two “sides” too, but in reality they’re pretty much dipping sauces. I went with Cilantro Chutney and Sambar (lentil dipping soup).
The way it works is, you go up to the window, place your order, give ‘em your name, and wait until they call.
I waited about 10 minutes before the nice lady stuck her head out the window and just said… “Ugh, Crispy Holy Cow… with Water?”
The confused look on her face suggested she must have forgotten my name, but I assumed the order was mine because everyone who ordered before me asked for crazy drinks like “Organic Mango Lassi.”
That sounded good, but the girl in front of me got the last one. ANYWAY…
This is what I got:
This thing is like an Indian potato burrito, but instead of a tortilla, they use like a crepe. It’s light, soft, and foldable, so it’s a fun little thing to eat.
Not crazy Indian spicy, but enough so that if you didn’t order a drink, you’d be pissed off with yourself. The taste was rather bland, so the dipping sauces were a nice addition.
I didn’t taste any carrots, lettuce, or cheese (that I paid a dollar more for), so I assume they either forgot or got my order wrong. I think that would have added for flavor.
Now I ate this on Labor Day at around 3:15pm, so it was really hot outside and this added to the heat. Maybe I’m wrong, but I always assumed India had a hot climate too. I never understood the combination of hot weather & spicy food, but I did it, therefore it felt pretty authentic. Like I was eating from a street vender in Punjab.
I don’t plan on returning anytime soon, mostly because I’m a big carnivore. I like my Indian food with thick curry sauce and chunks of lamb, but this place seems right for the vegetarians.
