Dosas To Die For in New York

No, he's not Veerappan. He's the Dosa Man of New York

Forget Jackson Heights. Forget the South Indian food joints on Lexington Avenue. Forget even the Ganesh Temple cafeteria in Flushing.

If you are hankering for the best Dosas in New York, head straight for Washington Square Park (south) in Manhattan.

You'll quickly find Thiru Kumar's Dosa cart (located at the intersection of W.4th St and Sullivan St at the South end of Washington Square Park). Perhaps, the only Dosa cart in all of USA.

Sporting a Veerappan kind of mustache, Thiru is a friendly soul catering to New York's melting pot of customers - White, Black and Brown.

Thiru's Dosas come in various kinds: Sadha Dosa, Rava Dosa, Masala Dosa, Pondicherry Dosa, Uthappam and mixed Vegetable Uthappam. The current favorite is the Pondicherry Dosa, a crepe made of lentils and rice and filled with potatoes and fresh vegetables.

Mindful of the different palates he caters to, Thiru offers customers a choice of mild or spicy dosas. If you are an Indian, ask for the spicy Dosas and you won't be disappointed.

After you place your order, the Dosas are made fresh in front of your eyes. The yummy Dosas are offered in disposable containers with chutney and delicious sambar.

You can enjoy the spicy Dosas right there in the park or take 'em to your office or home for a relaxed meal.

Thiru's Dosas are not greasy as most Dosas in New york restaurants unfortunately are. It's the lack of excess oil that imparts a fine taste and flavor to Thiru's Dosas.

Besides Dosas, Thiru offers Idli, Medhu Vada, Samosa, Vegetable Rolls and a wide selection of cold drinks to sate your thirst.

The prices are moderate. For instance, the Pondicherry Dosa is $5, the Rava Dosa $4 and the Sadha Dosa $3.

Dosas are a perennial South Indian favorite, particularly in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, but are now finding favor beyond the Vindhyas too. Some of our fondest childhood memories are of gorging on heaps of Masala Dosas.

If you are like us and the very word Dosa sends you salivating, head pronto to Thiru's cart at Washington Square Park South in Manhattan.

Be prepared to stand in line though. For the popularity of these Dosas has already spread across the greater New York metropolitan region.

Just in case you are wondering. Thiru is from Sri Lanka and came to the U.S. after winning the Green Card lottery.

Dosa Cart Timings: Mon-Fri 11 AM-4 PM

Location: Washington Square Park South (intersection of West 4th St & Sullivan St)

Ph: 917-710-2092
