Nationwide, the Twin Cities are famous for our ingenious skyway system, but only people who have really navigated those above-ground mazes understand that they are also a veritable treasure trove of fantastic cheap eats. We discovered a new favorite this year at Ipotli, a fast-casual Indian restaurant serving breakfast (yup), lunch, and dinner in the top level of the Quebec building at 6th & Marquette.

For under $6, you can drop by for a nice hot chai and order up one of Ipotli's dosas - fluttery, paper-thin crepes made out of a lentil-based batter and griddled until blistering and golden. Ipotli makes a hearty lentil oatmeal dosa, a rich egg dosa that's perfect for breakfast, and then there's the spicy dosa, the kickiest and most craveable of all. 

Served with plain yogurt to tone down the heat and a salty green cilantro and chile sauce that will stick with you throughout the day, this dosa is essentially two of the lentil crepes fused together by a thin layer of fragrant tomato-based paste. It's great walking food if you're on the go, but this is definitely a dish worth making a little extra time for.
