Dosa Corner: South Indian Vegetarian Restaurant in Columbus Ohio
That little hole-in-the-wall ethnic eatery, where excellent food your mama never heard of is dished out for cheap, exists (it must be said) largely in the mind. Most of the places that appear to fit the bill turn out to serve mediocre food, and while the cuisines of far away and unfamiliar places are done very well in Columbus, it is often in well-appointed settings and not for cheap. Because one of the joys of being a restaurant critic is to put you onto the great little hole in the wall, and as I am in an unselfish mood:Go at once to Dosa Corner for "dosa".

What the restaurant calls "dosa" are thin, plate-size pancakes made of lentil and rice flours, dark and crackling on the outside, soft and white on the inside. They're naturally sweet but not sweetened, lightly sour from the overnight fermentation of the batter (like sourdough bread, only better), and while the things are wonderful palin or dipped in the fragrant coconut milk-based chutney or one of the many ohter condiments served here, they are even more wonderful filled with all manner of vegetables, cheese, or mixtures thereof.

They come to us from the remarkably varied and boldly flavored cuisine of Southern India; Dosa Corner is a vegetarian restaurant serving the food of that region.
(It should be noted that this is not our first such restaurant-this column just loves Udipi Cafe on East Dublin-Granville Road as well.)

Before you get to the dosa, which you must have here, there are several good appetizers to try. Any standard samosa (a curried, potato-and-pea-filled pastry crust, deep-fried) is worth eating. A-loo bonda is better-a similar mixture with the addition of cashews, in a more flavorful chickpea batter.
