Lost in a strip-mall sea of dentist offices and second-rate video stores, it might take you a while to find this street-food treasure featuring vegetarian food in the tradition of South India. The local favorite was chosen by the Austin Chronicle as Best Vegetarian. Three reasons: it is cheap, fast and like nothing you have eaten before. That is, unless you are used to pancakes twice as big as the plate, crisply fried with lentil curry and coconut salsa. Or, how about the Chole Samosa? That is two samosas soaked in chickpea gravy, topped with sweet-hot sauces, chopped onions and cilantro. Wash it down with a Masala Tea or a mango flavored yogurt drink they call Lassi. A lack of ambiance is excused by sheer authenticity.
