Udupi Palace 1901 University Ave./Martin Luther King Blvd.  A cog in a chain that stretches to Toronto, Canada, this all-vegetarian cafe serves up the pancakes and other dishes that comprise South Indian cuisine.  Thin, rolled, rice-flour crÍpes known as dosas are especially good.  They include a gargantuan paper dosa that measures almost 2 feet long and is filled with yellow split peas, a triangular mysore masala dosa filled with spicy potatoes, and a lacy rava masala dosa made with two kinds of onion and filled with potatoes.  Plate-size uthappam are fatter—more like Western pancakes—and topped with various mixtures.  Rice dishes, curries, and a daily special ten-item thali plate flesh out the focused menu.
