Limp and Lackluster: Dosa Truck

The Cruisers invited us to join them at the Santa Monica Food Truck Lot next to The Victorian, very close to where they live. This happens Tuesday nights from 5:30 to 10:00. These next few posts are from that one visit.

Dosa Truck seemed like a good idea.

Sadly, it wasn't actually a good idea.

All dosas are $7 except for specials, which cost $8.

Shiva-Shakti -- sweet potato and smashed curried potatoes
Goa Goodness -- spinach, mushroom, cheese
Slumdog -- Indian "pesto," paneer, spinach, smashed curried potatoes

Sorry I didn't get any photos of the insides, but let me describe them for you. All three contained a goopy mess that was either orange or green and somewhat reminiscent of baby food. All three of these fillings were bland. Worst of all, instead of being slightly crisp, each dosa was seriously impotent -- floppy, flaccid failures.

Tragic, really.

Samosas are $2 each.

Also fairly flavorless and not worth your time.

I should've turned around when I saw the people who took my order were aging white hippies and not Indian people. Just terrible. Don't make the same mistake.

  3. This is the worst one of them all. I waited in a long line for it because my other food truck option was the Smokehouse and I had eaten at that one and it sucked. I get to the front of the line to find out that they have NO MEAT. The fuck?

    Horrible. Horrible. And horrible.
