Pulitzer Prize winning critic and LA Weekly's Counter Intelligence columnist Jonathan Gold samples South India’s spicy Andhra Pradesh vegetarian cuisine at Tirupathi Bhimas in Artesia's Little India. He recommends the spicy Andhra thali, which has soups, grain, and stew dishes arranged on a platter and garnished with dosas, pappadum cracker, and chapati bread. Also a must is the uthappam, a large round fermented rice-lentil batter covered with vegetables, stewed chiles or nuts fried in butter.
