Rasa: Michelin Star South Indian Restaurant in Burlingame
Rasa is a gorgeous South Indian restaurant in Burlingame, just outside San Francisco. The menu is creative yet reasonably priced for locally grown and sustainable ingredients. This year, Rasa is the recipient of one Michelin star. And was recently placed on the San Francisco Chronicle’s Top 100 Restaurants list. To craft their menu, they traveled up and down India’s coast, from Kerala to Hyderabad and beyond. The foods from these regions boasted an arsenal of flavors like none other – curries that were simultaneously spicy yet cooling, fresh seafood prepared in homemade chutney, crisp dosas with hearty, warm sambar.

Heirloom Beet Salad
