Dosa Cart – Midtown 39th and Broadway New York
Iâ€™ve long known about the Dosa cart but just couldnâ€™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 wasnâ€™t too hungry and decided to give the Dosa a shot. If youâ€™ve never had Dosaâ€™s, they are a pancake like crepe made out of rice and lentil batter. Itâ€™s usually stuffed with vegetables and a curry sauce but sometimes youâ€™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 wonâ€™t get the amount of food as youâ€™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 (heâ€™s got a monopoly on his product afterall).
At the cart, you can also pick up some samosas for $3 if you donâ€™t think youâ€™ll be stuffed. It actually was very filling and I will definitely go back again sometime soon. Enjoy!
