WEST VILLAGE, NY – It’s not easy to be named one of New York’s best restaurants for any cuisine, let alone if you don’t have actual interior space, but that’s exactly what it is. ‘a popular West Village food cart has just completed.
NY Dosas, an Indian food cart typically parked near Washington Square Park, has been named by Eater NY as one of the 19 Best Vegan and Vegetarian Places in New York City.
Here’s what the editors of the Food News and Rankings website had to say about it:
“This Washington Square street vendor usually has a long line of impatient and hungry customers,” Eater NY wrote. “For good reason: the Indian food truck that specializes in all things crispy dosas is one of the most affordable (and portable) vegan options in town – perfect for picnics at socially distanced parks.”
The Dosas food cart is almost always parked at 50 Washington Square South. Its usual hours are Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The West Village Food Cart also won a Vendy Award for “Best Street Food” in New York City.
Its menu includes Masala Dosa, Singapore noodles, samosa, and a vegan drumstick. All dishes are vegan and gluten free.
Thiru Kumar has been running the food cart and has been doing it in Washington Square Park since 2001. His famous dosas are made with fermented rice and lentils before being stuffed with potatoes, vegetables and spicy sauces.
Kumar is originally from Sri Lanka.
