House of Curry in Rosemount (Sri Lankan, I know, but I'm going to call it Indian) was recommended to me. 


sandwiches that are large and filling and do not contain tuna or prawns

I dunno. I find the image of you driving around the region alone, searching for Indian food, kind of romantic.

Find him a second banana, and you've got "The Trip III".

Admittedly, I'm totally on the wrong thread with this but, considering that a)there's no indigenous readership on these obscure Midwestern area threads to bother anyway & b)the 4 of you participating might actually get a kick out of it, here goes.  After a day at the US Open last month, Ginny, our friend Linda and I decided to go to the Jackson Diner in Queens to see if it's still bad.  The last meal we had there, maybe only 2 years ago, was passable, many steps up from anything eaten there over the past decade or more.  Anywho, the dosas were very tasty, with a good sourish fresh dough wrapping and an abundance of decent filling.  Even the sambar and daal that came as condiments were fresh and well made.  Unfortunately, we also ordered other food.  The picture in the above post reminded me and I just knew you'd want me to share.  Okay, back to the topic kimosabe.

This makes me feel slightly better about Munich. There is a place with good but completely overpriced dosas i can get to in 20 minutes.

Do your kids eat Indian food?

the series picks back up again with a review of a not-great but quite decent dinner at malabari kitchen in minneapolis. how often do you see an indian restaurant in the u.s with none of the curry house classics on the menu? that alone has to be worth a few points.
