Next time I’m down visiting the fam in San Mateo, I hope to check this one out: ~ALL SPICE~, a new restaurant from chef Sachin Chopra (previously at San Jose’s Amber India, Palo Alto’s Mantra, and Mountain View’s Sakoon). He’s opened up the seasonal Cal-Indian 30-seat restaurant with his wife, Shoshana Wolff, in a three-room 1906 Victorian. Look for more modern dishes than traditional ones, like star anise and fennel confit chicken wings ($9), shortribs vindaloo ($18), and pumpkin dosa ($17) filled with nigella seed-flavored pumpkin, roasted tomatoes, and goat cheese. Open Wed-Sun 5:30pm-9:30pm. 1602 S. El Camino Real at Borel, 650-627-4303.
