New York tips: Tulsi, Jones Wood Foundry, Golden Mall

(From Tyler Cowen)

1. Tulsi, web site, 211 E. 46th, between 1st and 2nd, New York, NY, 212-888-0820. The most authentic Indian food I’ve had in the U.S., ever, get the vegetables. Not a cheap mom and pop, but by Manhattan standards this is reasonably priced for its quality. [Google | NYT| MY Mag | Yelp | Village Voice]

Jones Wood Foundry, web site, 401 East 76th Street, New York, NY, 212-249-2700. An excellent gastropub. [NYT | MenuPages | NY Mag | Yelp | Village Voice | Yelp]

2. Incendies joins Of Gods and Men and Even the Rain as one of my favorite films of the year. It is French-Canadian, set in Lebanon, and involves a journey of family discovery; I read it as an explicitly Christian movie.

3. Flushing, Queens, Golden Shopping Mall, 41-28 Main Street, Flushing, NY, go eat the Chinese food in the basement food court. For visitors, convenient from LaGuardia airport by taxi. [Serious NY Eats | Chowhound | Village Voice]

If you live in New York, or visit frequently, this is my best blog post ever.

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 ...

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
