Dad jokes and dosas

Illustration by Sarah Hansel

If you hate your dad, get him a red tie that hangs so low it covers his tiny xenophobic pickle for Father’s Day. But if you have a nice dad, do something nice, like treating him to a meal at Mylapore, the vegetarian South Indian joint in Folsom. In honor of Pops, the restaurant got an alcohol license for Sunday, June 18, so Baba can enjoy beer or wine with his masala dosa or tomato chili uthappam. Plus, Mylapore says the proceeds will go to the Sacramento Kindness Campaign, an organization that aids refugees in the Sacramento area. But if June 18 is too far away for South Indian culinary delights, go on Tuesday—or, as Mylapore calls it (in a very dad-joke way) Twosday, when ordering two of the same entrees from 11 a.m. to 4:59 p.m. gets you a third one for free. Find Mylapore online at and in person at 1760 Prairie City Road, Suite 160, in Folsom.
