2130 Center Street, Berkeley
Now takes reservations
Clinton made an appearance at Cal last week and we figured he might go to Chez Panisse for dinner afterwards, so we went. Just in case. He didn’t go but the meal was still incredible. It was my first visit to the cafe in over 3 years and it was better than I remember.
If you’re in the mood for vegetarian India food, especially a spicy dosa, Udupi Palace is a great Berkeley option. It’s cheap, quick and it tastes like it does in India except you don’t have to run to the bathroom 10 minutes after finishing. I got the spicy masala dosa: ****/5, and a mango lassi (like a yogurt smoothy). Perfect for a quick Indian lunch. Recommended to me by SweetLime.
