Best Masala Dosa in Toronto?
- Mike Monteleone
Does anyone know a great place in Toronto for Masala Dosa takeout? There was an unbleavable place in Little India (which closed several years ago)across the street from the library.
The Dosa looked like a very big burritto with a slightly crispy crepe-like shell and spicy potato filling and coconut sauce to spoon over the top!!!! It also can with a great spicy soup.
My kids still ask where we can get them again.
Oh, it sounds like you're missing the Madrass Express, which really was awsome! So sad that they're gone.
I, too, have been looking for masala dhosas as good as those, and I found something pretty close. There's a small place off of Parliment by Wellsley, called Indies (I think) and their dhosas are pretty darn good. I've been there twice and the dhosa was better the first time, but still quite good the second time, so I'd go back for sure.
As an added bonus, they have a really nice little patio out front with a big tree overhead and that looks into the garden of the swanky French place next door--it's lovely on a summer evening.
I can't remember the street that Indies is on--it might be Amelia--but you go north up Parliment, and it's on the east side, around Wellsley, just past the gas station. It's down the side street a bit, but you should be able to see it from Parliment.
I love the dosa's at Madras Dosa Hutt, 1123 Albion just west of Islington. That's north of the 401. I've only been there for lunch, where they have a pretty good buffet, but that includes freshly made dosa's. Yummmm.... I believe that Madras Dosa Hut used to be located in little India... I wonder if it was actually the one to which you refer??
I tried a new place in scarborough, very tasty dosa.. (takeout decor), markham & Sheppherd, also madras palace at ellesmere east of midland has very good south indian food
