I've now eaten lunch with Weekly ace investigator Nick Schou for over a decade, and he has been my guinea pig for many a This Hole-in-the-Wall Life reviews, but the one place we returned to again and again was Dosa Place, the original location off Red Hill Avenue in Tustin before opening a second branch in the city. That's now the sole Dosa Place; the original location has gone off on its own and become Dosa Express.
I only had a brief chat with the new manager, who was the manager of the second Dosa Place--he said the two had gone their own ways. Don't really care about details when I'm hungry, and the buffet remained the same: a focus on South Indian treats like idlis and chicken frys, with tandoori thrown in for the masses. Nick and I aren't changing our lunch routine, and neither should you forsake Dosa Express.Dosa Express, 13812 Redhill Ave., Tustin, (714) 508-7778.
