Dosa man of NYC !!

It was a beautiful warm thursday afternoon here in NYC.I felt like eating a Dosai, but did not feel like going again to those expensive Indian restaurants.I just remembered reading elsewhere about Mr.Thirukumaran Kandasamy-Known as Dosa man of NYC and decided to check him out. I got off at West 4th street (On A train) and walked couple of blocks down to reach this road side dosai vendor @Junction of Washington square south /Sullivan street.Thiru is probably the ONLY road side dosai vendor in the continental USA. I waited for about 30 minutes in the line for my turn as the queue was quite long. Thiru was totally busy, juggling between phone orders-batter and the customers-A true one man show ! I placed an order for a Pondicherry Masala Dosai. It costed just $5 and it was YUMMY and i relished every bit of it !!
..................
ThiruKumar prepares fresh Dosai's-you name it-he has it-and serves them with chutney and sambar. Ask for his special colored chutney's too(tamarind/red chilli/green chilli). His stall is a boon to NewYork university students-Not just for desi students-but others aswell !

So next time when you plan a trip down to NYC-DONOT FORGET TO CHECK OUT THIRU'S DOSAI JOINT !.

BUSINESS HOURS: 11AM-4PM ;MON-FRI.
CONTACT : NYdosas@yahoo.com or (917) 710-2092.

I wish someone opens up franchise for a roadside dosa store similar to hotdog heaven! It will be a treat!
