Best Foodie Adventures: Jersey City, New Jersey (2012)

Sri Ganesh's Dosa House

Dosas are one of the world's greatest vegetarian dishes—humongous fermented-batter crepes of Indian origin either stuffed with a potato-and-nut mixture or served plain, but always with chutneys and a soup called sambar on the side. You can get a few variations at Manhattan and Queens eateries, but why not explore the mother lode at Sri Ganesh's Dosa House in Jersey City, on a two-block stretch of Newark Avenue steps away from the Journal Square PATH station. Peruse the dosa list and make your selection at the counter, take a seat, and the staff will bring your dosa to the numbered table you select. Also, don't miss the porridge called upma or the dumplings called idly at this amazing palace of vegetarian culture, presided over by the elephant-headed god. 809 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, New Jersey, 201-222-3883(07306)
