Chennai Garden - Closed

129 E. 27th St. New York, NY 10016 | Murray Hill | 212-689-1999

Location Description:

There are now plenty of places in Curry Hill where you can get a masala dosa, the delicious potato-filled crepe of South India, but Chennai Garden has carried the obsession further than most other establishments, offering manifold variations like rava dosa (with a supple Cream of Wheat batter), paper dosa (an ultra-thin unfilled crepe), and, my fave, a "gunpowder" masala dosa hosed with hot pepper. In addition to such southern snacks as iddly and utthappam, the menu goes exploring in the Pujab and Gujarat, respectively, for specialties like okra masala and undhiyu, an unusual stew of yam, snow peas, and eggplant.
