Oh My God! Oh My God!
Question: What’s worse than a North Indian restaurant in New York City making a mess of the delicious South Indian crepe Masala Dosa?
Answer: A Pakistani food cart in New York City peddling awful Masala Dosa.
We were wandering around New York City yesterday when our eyes fell on the word DOSA prominently emblazoned on a food cart at the corner of W.39th St and 6th Ave (close to Bryant Park and New York Public Library).
Well, you know what happened next.
Like Indian youths drawn toward pictures of Mallika Sherawat’s tatas, our legs were pushed of their accord to the Dosa cart for two reasons – the drooling desire to munch into the Dosa and the chance to do a review of another desi eatery in NYC.
Pak Dosa Cart – Horrible Masala Dosa
Although the cart owner Shahid Riyaaz was closing up, he was nice enough to offer to make us the Dosas.
By the way, Shahid hails from Lahore in Pakistan and says he got attracted to Dosas after tasting it at the Dosa Diner in Jackson Heights, NY.
During our visit, Shahid had two varieties: Plain Dosa and Masala Dosa.
Of course, we opted for the Masala Dosa ($4.99).
It took about five minutes to get our Masala Dosas that Shahid cut into pieces and packed into Styrofoam boxes.
We took the boxes and quickly headed to the nearby Bryant Park where there are chairs and tables.
Pak Dosa Cart Review – Lousy, Large Dosa
The Masala Dosa was large but, alas, it was not tasty. Not in the least.
