Editorial Review – Cab drivers and in-the-know locals flock to this tiny Indian deli at all hours for cheap and flavorful vegetarian dishes.
The best food place in New York – ....as long as your okay with veg food, and are not looking for a sit down. It's called Punjabi Deli, and it's just that. No-nonsense Indian soul food, good and cheap. I recommend getting Chana (chickpeas) with Samosa but it's all wonderful. The people who work there are great too. Another plus is: open 24 hours.
Late night curries and low-priced lunch – Punjabi has been one of my favorite Indian holes-in-the-wall for some right now. Don't bother with Pak Punjab or some of the other Houston street hindi-spoons. This is the real deal. $3 gets you a bowl of rice topped with one of 5 (or so) tasty, homemade vegetarian dishes. Add another buck and get a plate with bread and lettuce. Always packed with local cab drivers and in-the-know Villagers, this place is an affordable gem not to be overlook at 2 am or 12 pm. As one of my close Indian friends says: "Mmm...just like home!"
