Some updates: Dosa Truck & Australian Pub are new places!

The 21st century moves quickly.  Some recent events related to restaurants I've reviewed:

Copper Chimney is now indoors!  The popular dosa truck has moved to a more semi-permanent location in the Black Mountain Road Indian district inside the supermarket next door to Ashoka.

I guess now it's called Spice Court Restaurant?

Details are sketchy on the dosa truck website but it has their hours and directions:


Lovers of Allen's handwritten signs, as I am, do not have to fear (yet) however as they have a big white board with a handwritten menu outside on the sidewalk.

In other news:

A trip back to PB yesterday revealed that the long standing Australian Pub in PB is no more.  In name at least.  Their new menu which I mentioned in my review of them is still there, as are their excellent wings, in some ways much better and consistent than the old Aussie Pub.

But their name is now The Black Pearl, it seems to be pirate themed.  The same red faced old timers were still congregating at the bar around 3pm on a nice weather Monday though, so all is well.  And now they don't have to explain why they don't carry Australian beer.  I can't find any info on the new named restaurant online.  If they have a website or if someone knows anything more please let me know via comments below.

Pitcher of Kona Porter, couple baskets of wings, delicious weather & good conversation = how life should be spent!
