Omnivore - A visit to the 'new' Udipi

The longtime favorite Indian restaurant has moved to a new location.

We visited Udipi last week. The restaurant, once my favorite Indian venue in town, has moved to the shopping center at the corner of Lawrenceville Highway and Church Street.

The menu is the same, as far as I remember, but the experience is generally quite changed. This classic thali (above) was good but a few other dishes were unpleasantly surprising. There was, for example, a spicy puree served with, um, something very much like the bottoms of hamburger buns (right). Yes, chewy, gooey white bread.

I'll have more to say later this week in "Grazing."
