Before I left for my trip to India, I made sure to talk to Anjan Mitra of Dosa for travel tips about Mumbai, his hometown (which is why he calls it Bombay). I was blown away with the street food my sister and I tried, so when I returned, Anjan and I came up with this tablehopper.com and DOSA event featuring the amazing street food of Mumbai.
We're hosting this daytime event at the glam Dosa on Fillmore, and will feature a crazy-delicious array of classic street food dishes: pani puri, pav bhaji, vada pav (one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten in my life), bhel puri, dahi papadi chaat, lamb frankies (or with paneer for the vegetarians), an array of kebabs, and one of my personal favorites, lamb baida roti. Nine courses in all, and it's all gonna be so good. And very vegetarian friendly. We'll also have some chai and sweets at the end.
Since my sis and I couldn't find any good wine the entire trip (trust me, it was rough), things had to be very different for this event. We're going to be featuring a selection of wonderful wines from Robert Oatley Vineyards; Bob Oatley is the Australian winemaker who took Rosemount Estate to the world. Robert Oatley Vineyards is built around the family's extensive vineyard holdings and modern winery in Mudgee, New South Wales. You will have the opportunity to try half-glass/tasting pours of the following food-friendly wines: 2009 Pinot Grigio, 2009 Sauvignon Blanc, 2009 Sangiovese Rose, 2008 Chardonnay, 2007 Shiraz, and the 2007 Cab-Merlot.
We're going to be seated communally and served family style. Yup, it's going to be a seated street food party. And we're keeping it simple and affordable: the entire nine-course feast is only $45, which includes all the food, wine tastes, tax, and tip. Let's eat.
