SF Weekly's Seven-Day Dish

Posted By on Tue, Jul 1, 2008 at 6:08 PM


Around Town:

When Indian restaurant Udupi Palace (1007 Valencia at 21st St.) opened a few weeks ago in the Mission space formerly occupied by upscale Chinese spot Firecracker, many foodies wondered: How did San Francisco's only two South Indian joints end up a block away from each other? Just down the street at 995 Valencia sits local favorite Dosa, but Udupi Palace owner Uday Shetty isn't worried about the competition. "They have a little different menu than us, they have meat items," he says. "We are totally vegetarian. The dosas are a favorite, though, especially our Paper Masala Dosa [$6.95]. It's a three-foot-long rice crepe filled with spicy potatoes and onions. For customers new to us, I would suggest trying the Udupi Special Spring Dosa [$6.95]. It's spicy with fresh-cut vegetables. It's got everything." Udupi Palace is open Tuesdays through Sundays for lunch and dinner. 970-8008.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
