Malabar Café/Asian Rose in Santa Cruz

We had dinner at the Malabar Cafe’ in Santa Cruz before going to the Glow Festival of Fire & Light. Pictured above is the Winter Vegetable Korma Curry. Three of us shared this and the Dosa filled with Eggplant and two small plates: one cauliflower in a wonderful sauce, the other a banana papaya salad. All was delicious, and a reminder that we should visit this local treasure more often! The festival was great fun, with fire art projects and fire dancers, and I loved watching Jozseph Schultz from India Joze popping corn in his huge wok for the crowd that lined up for some of his wok-fried popcorn.
