The other week when Killiney Kopitiam first opened I was deterred by the Saturday lunch line, I ended up getting a dosa at Dosa Point in Menlo Park. I previously got a biryani from Dosa Point a few months ago (don’t ask me why I decided to get a biryani from a dosa place- I guess I really wanted a biryani that day.) and found it alright. This time I did the proper ordering and got the item that the restaurant is named for.
The masala dosa was great, much better than their biryani. The dosa was slightly crisp on the outside and had an potato / onion filling inside. Its mildly spicy and came with two chutneys and a sambar. The chutneys were great- the tomato chutney was bright and and the cilantro chutney was fresh and cool.
Overall I thought the dosa was very good. I was quite surprised that Menlo Park’s getting a proper dosa restaurant. I guess the Facebook campus is somewhat nearby even though few are working on site these days. It really reminded me of Dosa Paratha in Mountain View. So I made a mental note to visit Dosa Paratha soon so I could compare.
And a few weeks later, I did. I tried to call Dosa Paratha up to place an order. And I was bummed to see that they were reported closed on Yelp. I always liked Dosa Paratha and thought they did a proper job of dosas. I looked up their web site. Guess what, its showing up as Dosa Point. Aha! I guess that’s why the dosas tasted so much alike! Mystery solved!
@bbulkow I think you have been there? What else do you like?
