Dive In


Dunked Doughnut Delight: 2 deep fried savory doughnuts dipped in lentil soup.

That’s the hilarious description of sambar/vada in the menu for the Indian Crepe Co—which has a chain of restaurants across the US. The worthy establishment also offers ‘Dunked Rice Cake Delight’, ‘Naked Crepe’, ‘Classic Lentil Pancake’ etc—and, oddly, samosas, ras malai, gulab jamun and pakodas. Why be translating South Indian food only? We are filing a Change.org petition, ekdum jaldi. (Also: Happy Monday, everybody!)

Don’t miss out on the fun! Everyone who attends our online pub quiz has a brilliant time. One big reason: the company is excellent—including our awesome quiz master, Anushree Kaushal—and the camaraderie among splainer subscribers is truly unique. So sign up to join us for an hour of uncomplicated mazaa on Zoom. The deets: Saturday, July 23 at 5pm. A beer in hand is entirely optional!
