Tulsi is just a fast-casual restaurant in the same way that a wolverine is just an animal. It’s technically true, but there’s a lot more exciting context than that. This Indian mini-chain has four locations across LA, and it’s officially where you should be getting lunch in DTLA or a quick dinner in Westwood. Their counter-service dining rooms look like a Sweetgreen, but the food here is much more exciting than overdressed kale—Tulsi offers a solid array of Northern, Southern, and Western Indian dishes that almost all cost less than $15. The specialty is their gunpowder masala dosa, filled with soft potatoes dusted in spicy dry chilis and served with lentil-studded sambar. We also love their extensive lassi menu, which has flavors that range from dragon fruit to hibiscus-cotton candy.
