Where to Find Good South Indian Food?
- Wendy Lai
Most Indian food served in the U.S. are Northern Indian food (Breads of India, Amber India, Scenic India all pretty much serve northern cuisine). Does anybody have any recommendation on south Indian cuisine?
Vik's Chaat Corner in on 4th Street and Alston Way in Berkeley is great, but unfortunately, it closes at 6pm during the week and 6:30 on weekends (closed monday), so it's mainly for lunch or a really early dinner.
It's also self-service in a warehouse on paper plates, but the price can't be beat and it's very popular with Indians.
You might also try the Chaat Cafe on University Avenue or Shaan Restaurant on San Pablo Ave, both of which are highly recommended and are more restauranty.
