There’s not a lot to say about NY Dosas that hasn’t been said before — the vegan-friendly South Indian street food cart is one of New York’s most storied lunch stops, thanks to the undeniable charisma of Thiru Kumar, or as the people of Greenwich Village call him, “The Dosa Guy”.
There are a number of solid lunch deals on offer at NY Dosas, spanning many regions of South Asia. Of course you can grab dosas (a type of fermented Indian rice crepe), but Kumar is also serving up lentil patties, Jaffna-style pancakes, roti, and even—on Thursdays only—spicy Singaporean noodles, topped with potatoes and veggies. Vegan or not, your guests will feel great about putting away a ton of Kumar’s guilt-free cooking, so book him to cater your next event.
Special Pondicherry — A rice and lentil dosa crepe filled with veggies and potatoes, served with sambar and coconut chutney. And get some samosas on the side, because duh.
