Exciting New Brunch Menu Debuts at DOSA on Valencia
One of our favorite SF restaurants, DOSA, is launching a brand new brunch menu at their Valencia Street location! DOSA’s talented kitchen team has been perfecting a comprehensive menu that focuses on brunch classics, authentic Indian street foods as well as traditional South Indian dishes. Highlights from the new menu include Sunny Side/Over Easy Uttapam, Lamb Keema Omelet, Kerala Egg Curry w/Chapati, Egg Poriyal Dosa and a classic Indian Thali. Thali features seasonal poriyal, sambar, rasam, kozhambu, raita, achaar, papad, idli, payasam, chapati and basmati rice, artfully presented on a banana leaf.The menu will also feature brunch sweets and a lassi bar!
The official launch is tomorrow – Saturday, November 7 from 10:30am – 3pm. DOSA will be serving complimentary tastes of their new brunch cocktail, the Hibiscus Sparkler, as well as of other delicious food and beverage samples.
As part of the kick-off celebration, DOSA will be unveiling a beautiful new “DOSA Cart”. Based on inspirations from South India travels, Todd Smith, Wine Director & Sommelier at DOSA, and owners, Anjan and Emily Mitra, collaborated with visual artist, Namita Kapoor, and her husband, Gundi Vigfusson, a well-regarded photographer and fabricator, to create a vibrant cart that will be the new face of Valencia Street and the Mission District. Each side of the cart allows DOSA to showcase various happenings at the restaurant and will be used to post menus, specials and various events.
This new art installation is a work of passion and invention representing the best of South Indian culture. The cart is designed from a collection of materials and the vision was to use materials that truly reflect Indian culture – bright colors, reflective jewels, cut glass, etc.
Namita has worked with DOSA on two other large, mixed-media pieces titled “Effervescent Delights” and “Billboard”, both which interpret Indian decorative and street iconography in a modern way. She also designed DOSA’s private wine label, Sujata, which is a combination of both DOSA paintings. The new DOSA cart takes silkscreen elements from both pieces and blends them into the base of the cart.
