India Sweet House
Cheap Eats: Indian/Pakistani, June 2012
This no-frills spot is dedicated to the Indian snacks and small dishes known as chaat. Specialties include softball-size samosas, lentil pancakes stuffed with curried potatoes, and miniature thali (sampler plates) filled with stews like daal (lentils), aloo gobi (cauliflower and potatoes), and mattar paneer (peas and cheese). The decadent gulab jamun—sweet-sticky milk dough balls dunked in rose water—is an exceptional dessert.
