OK, I have been spoiled. I have had excellent Indian food in London on many occasions. What I have NOT had is even decent Indian here in NYC. I've been all over and the Indian food in NYC is generally mediocre at best. But, I am thinking maybe I have not looked in the right places. So, I reach out to you my fellow hounds, can anyone name outstanding examples of Indian food from any region of the subcontinent. Yes, I have already been to Tamarind, Tabla Spice Market (I know these last two are "fusion" spots)--while all "good" those places are true homestyle Indian food and would never get away with such prices in London because that level of quality can be had all over London for a lot less. I've been to Lex & 28 places and yes, 6th St (And, Jackson Diner and most of those other places on Roosevelt Ave in Queens are nothing special at all). So, I am calling out for a hidden gem that I may have missed.
Do I have to go to London every time I need a Indian food fix?
