Have you ever gone someplace hellbent on eating one thing but ended up being completely enchanted by something else? I live for these moments of serendipity.
My colleague Anjali Raguraman likes to roll her eyes when I tell her about my favourite thosai places. She thinks MTR and Saravana Bhavan, both in Little India, are too posh. When I wrote about that $22 thosai at Como Cuisine for this column recently, I was afraid her eyes had rolled so far back they'd never come back down.
