Good Vegetarian

BY: On this topic, I prefer very hot & spicey Indian vegetarian cooking at Saravanaas and at Chennai Garden for their versions of masala dosa, breads, whole grains, vegetables, etc. Zen Palate has been around for many years but I could never bring myself to eat there.

Tangra for excellent Indian-Chinese food

Tangra Asian Fusion Cuisine opened in late-September, and according to Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld is the much-larger branch of Tangra Masala at 8709 Grand Avernue in Elmhurst (menu here) ... Chef-partner Peter Lo is no relation to Peter Lo of A Guy In New York ...

This is a big place, and the food is excellent ...

the Okra Tangra Masala is a truly outstanding dish ...

Tangra Restaurant : popcorn chicken
Tangra Restaurant : popcorn chicken is very popular (every table we saw ordered it), but we thought it was just OK - too much cornstarch

When we left at 10:00 pm or so on a weekday night, large Indian families were still coming in, a real testament to the popularity of Tangra ... conveniently located just across the street from the 40th St./Lowery St. stop on the 7 train.

A mneu from the original Tangra in Elmhust is available from the BridgeandTunnelClub
