Dosa Cart – Midtown 39th and Broadway New York
I’ve long known about the Dosa cart but just couldn’t get myself to walk the extra block past one of my favorite Halal Carts : Little Morocco on 39th and 7th. But yesterday I ate a huge breakfast and wasn’t too hungry and decided to give the Dosa a shot. If you’ve never had Dosa’s, they are a pancake like crepe made out of rice and lentil batter. It’s usually stuffed with vegetables and a curry sauce but sometimes you’ll find variations with meat as well.
The Dosa cart offers a few variations (all vegetarian). I got the Mysore Masala which has spicy cauliflower curry. The dosas are freshly made on the grill to order and it comes with a side of lentil soup in a small cup. For $5 , you won’t get the amount of food as you’ll get at the Little Morocco Halal cart a block away but honestly the long lines you see out of this cart easily tells you that the dosa dude does some serious business (he’s got a monopoly on his product afterall).
At the cart, you can also pick up some samosas for $3 if you don’t think you’ll be stuffed. It actually was very filling and I will definitely go back again sometime soon. Enjoy!
