Tiffin Wallah

New restaurant to me.... Tiffin Wallah on 28th Street. It was a foodie afternoon. Met Blogless Nicki to go to Kalustyans. For those who have never been, it is foodie heaven. They have everything you ever even thought you might need in the way of spice, baking supplies, nuts, dried fruit, chutney, oils, vinegars.... the list is endless and it is all crammed into this crowded but organized place. It is all encompassing, even by New York standards.

So, having spent more than I wanted to and carrying a big fat bag, we went to Tiffin Wallah.
The poor guy sitting next to me had to put up with me taking pictures of his food, but SERIOUSLY folks, have YOU ever seen a dosa like this one?
Thank goodness he was good natured about it. Then we got our food and more pictures were taken...

This was a combo, and it was seriously good. There were two more samosa style pieces under the bread..

This was Nicki's and no that is not a doughnut, though I have to admit we had to taste it to be sure...

And when I came home and let Sienna out to play she was so happy she kissed everyone in sight.

Oooh, the last Tiffin we had was in Mumbai, and very good it was - but not as attractive as yours!

I love those Tiffin sets and were it not for the fact that they'd have to be stored somewhere and used only occasionally, I'd love a the meantime, I'll simply enjoy the great Indian food we get here served more conventionally.

I wish more local restaurants would appreciate the importance of feeding the eyes as well as the tum.

Now I want a dosa and it's not even 9am!
