Amma’s South Indian Cuisine is the type of spot where, in preparation for our meal, we eat light all day just so we can fill up on specials like mutton curry with spicy onion and tomato gravy, a creamy paneer butter masala, and stacks of warm parotta. Their dining room is always packed (they don’t take reservations), and it gets so loud in here that we suggest bringing those people that you can communicate with via side glances. For main entrees that are all $20, we didn’t expect to get vinyl record-sized plates like their spinach-tossed saag chicken that gets its maple taste from the fenugreek it’s cooked in or tender lamb in buttery cream sauce. But it’s one of our favorite Indian places in the city for that reason. We like it so much we even park on Chestnut Street just to eat here.
