Across 21st Street from Dosa, a competitor in South Indian cuisine has opened. Udupi Palace, an offshoot of the restaurant in Sunnyvale which is a favorite of the Indian ex-pat community in Silicon Valley, offers a range of typical Tamil and other South Indian delicacies – and no meat (or tofu, for that mattter). A wide range of Dosas, as well as Uttapam are on offer. Appetizers include samosas and idlis. Prices are very good – about as good as they get in San Francisco.
