Like last year, we've invited restaurants based on the recommendations of our food writers, Robert Sietsema and Sarah DiGregorio. And to whet your appetite, here's another preview of one of the participants, Tiffin Wallah.
This is what Sietsema had to say about the eatery in a 2007 review:
The genius of Tiffin Wallah lies in its delivery of the three great vegetarian cuisines of India--Gujarati, the fleshless half of Punjabi, and southern Indian. As an added advantage, the food is significantly fresher than at most Indian spots, because the cooks have a predilection for whipping things up on the spot rather than stockpiling them on a steam table. The menu is strictly vegetarian, partly vegan, and kosher too. Its centerpiece is four $14 set meals--including bread, rice, curries, and condiments--that take the worry out of deciphering the complicated menu. All set meals are served dramatically on thalis, compartmentalized metal trays that will remind you of TV dinners (only good).
