Indian Accent pt. 2

I can’t have enough of Indian Accent in NYC. It is by far my favorite restaurant. Delicious Indian flavors in very impressive, extremely Instagram-able plating, you are bound to have a memorable experience. Here are some new plates I tired earlier this year:

Momos in Manhattan

Momos are dumplings. They’re known as Momos up in the Himalayan region and around Nepal. Why? I’ve never asked anyone that question and it doesn’t really matter because when you’re served momos, you have 1 job to do – eat them. They’re good.

The Dosa Waffle

Turkish Delights
