Directly across the street from two Sri Lankan cafes, and on the same block as the towering Albanian mosque, Dosa Garden is the first south Indian restaurant in Staten Island. Not only does it dispense vegetarian dosas, iddlies, and utthapams, it supplements these with flesh-bearing dishes from south India, including the celebrated chicken chettinadu, shrimp fry, and deviled anchovies, along with a handful of Sri Lankan dishes such as egg appam and mutton kothu roti. On our first visit, we most enjoyed a non-menu special of uppma, a cream of wheat porridge studded with pistachios, curry leaves, cardamom, and black mustard seeds.
