To hell with your eyes, man, I thought you said we could go back inside, that there would be no more food truck business. Yes, we enjoyed the food, but we’re tired of sitting outside wondering what the summer vibe is like today. Of course the Covid isn’t gone forever (well…em!) and we want to go back inside to a nice cozy restaurant once more.
Braganza’s winning menu in the BoTFT finals included a South Indian street food classic, a dosa, a crepe made with fermented rice batter and urad dal lentils, one of my lifelong passions. date. The Spice Genie dosa is smashing, tangy with a slight aniseed note of fenugreek. The textures are gorgeous; the sugars in the rice starch crisp up on the griddle and the lentils provide a nice chew. It’s stuffed with an earthy potato and sweet corn masala, the perfect little package accented with a clean, crisp coconut chutney accented with cilantro and tangy tamarind.
