DGN Factory

Houston is awash with great Indian restaurants in the Mahatma Gandhi district, but head northeast just a few minutes and you'll find yourself at the corner of Richmond and Fountainview, where DGN Factory (formerly known as The Dosa Factory) sits in a small shopping center. It's an unassuming place from the outside, and even the interior decor is more reminiscent of an Asian fast-food joint than of the namesake street food popular in southern India. But no matter; the dosas at DGN Factory -- all vegetarian -- are some of the best in town, and they come with a variety of traditional and not-so-traditional fillings from palak paneer to pizza. The side dishes like samosas and gobi Manchurian are also worth traveling for, as is the option to make anything on the menu vegan or gluten-free.
