Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs

House of Dosas – Kensington, Vancouver

Posted on: Monday 09 January 2012

Dimsumcouver (點心哥華) was perfectly timed for House of Dosas‘ Wednesday special of South Indian hoppers.

Open twenty four hours, there is a rotation of daily specials of dosa, thali, hopper, biryani and crab.

After yum cha (飲茶) at Vivacity (名都), wife cake (老婆餅) at Kam Do Bakery (金都餐廳餅店) and dumplings at No. 1 Shanghai Cuisine (滬上), we travelled to the Subcontinent for curries, dosas and hoppers. I ordered a mango lassi, a sweet and refreshing iced yoghurt beverage.

We shared the Wednesday special of hoppers with lamb curry and the gunpowder masala dosa. I was expecting string hoppers which I’ve had in Sri Lankan cuisine but three bowl shaped crêpes were served with a mound of lamb curry. With a charred edge and dotted with air bubbles, there were two plain hoppers and one with an egg cracked in. We tore pieces by hand and scooped up the tender and spicy curry.

Potatoes and onions were wrapped in a tanned triangle of dosa and presented with a container of daal and two dollops of condiments. Crisp and well seasoned, we nibbled on the gunpowder masala dosa and wished it was street food here too.

We stayed a while for the complimentary Wi-Fi and breathed in the spiced aromas.
