Pondicheri isn’t a restaurant I’d recommend to anyone. NYC has plenty of much better contemporary / urban / creative Indian restaurants. Here’s the rest of my order that came in before the disastrous thali.
This was surprisingly delicious. From celebrity chef Tom Collichio. Restaurant: wichCraft Hummus and veggie sandwich – Hummus, vegetable slaw, roasted tomato jam, cucumber, arugula and tahini dressing on toasted ciabatta bread
I am not going to mince words. And the chef doesn’t like to mince vegetables.
It tasted like frozen chai. And it was delicious with caramel popcorn. Restaurant: Veranda, Pali Hill, Mumbai
The Impossible Burger patty made from plants has made a lot of noise about how close to the beef burger it is. I tried it at Bareburger and it definitely made the burger look like a beef burger. In terms of flavor or texture, I am probably the last person who could answer that since…
Fries by themselves are great. Fries as a side to burgers are great. Fries in a bowl with toppings are great. So Bareburger’s adaptation of Pototapia’s concept is great too. Colorful peppers, spicy jalapeños, cheese and guac as toppings, these fries looked exciting & were good to munch on while we waited for our burgers.
Potatopia shut down in Manhattan and moved to Jersey City. That made me sad. Because they were an exciting spin on regular french fries. Served with a variety of toppings and even baked with additional cheese if you want, it was an unhealthy snack that I enjoyed.
