On my recent trip to Osaka, I stumbled upon a South Indian restaurant – Cocobanana. The restaurant has a set menu as well as an ala carte. I love that the food is served on banana leaves, which is a traditional South Indian method of serving rice dishes. The prices are reasonable, and the portions substantial. The cooks are Indian, and one Japanese waitress is friendly and speaks some English.
I had a plain Lassi (200 yen), Dosa with rice set with chicken curry and coconut fish curry (1300 yen), and paratha (300 yen). The lassi was sweet and refreshing. The curries were mild but delicious, and the paratha was soft and flaky, not too oily.
Overall, I enjoyed the meal and curbed my 3-and-a-half-year craving!
