Usually, when my friends and I are craving Indian food we end up going to 28th and Lexington. However, with less than two months before I graduate, I want to make sure I cover as much of New York City as I can and go beyond my comfort zone.
This past Sunday was the first sunny and warm day of spring. We decided to go to Masalawala on Essex Street in Soho. The place had good reviews and their menu was hilarious. Its a short 10 minute walk from the Bleecker St station.
It was a small and cozy spot; the music and atmosphere was intimate. My friend and I were surrounded by families. We were starving and we jetted off by ordering a bunch of things from their menu. If you’re looking to indulge in a burst of taste, please order the “Borivali Papri Chaat.” It was delicious and tasted just like home.
The restaurant overlooks a park and unusually wide streets (of this particular part of) Soho and that space makes it feel like an extension of the restaurant.
Definitely, a must visit! If you’re looking to indulge.
