I've been meaning to try the bhel puri here for years now, but I finally made a concerted effort to actually find this place, which is not that easy. It took me about three passes to check out the driveway leading up to 3110 Mt Vernon Avenue to discover a small row of shops and restaurants, including Del Merei Grille and Hector's, an Italian-American place.

Bhel puri is that crunchy snack of puffa puffa rice from the beach towns south of Bombay. Well, it's not so crunchy at BCC, but I'm not going to quibble with this airy, delicious concoction. Pretty good amount of kick, too.

The other items I tried were the onion bhaji and the tandoori chicken wings. Not only was all the food very well prepared, but this place gets extra stars in my book for the generous size of the starters. A cheap eats find. The wings were a marvel of smokiness, flavor, and tenderness. Unbelievable. A 'Must Order'.

The menu definitely seems like its worth exploring further.
