This South Indian spot in Jackson Heights makes some of the best dosas in the neighborhood, but it seems like most people haven’t figured that out yet because you can always walk in and get a table. The space here is straightforward - there’s nothing but an empty coat rack and several tables topped with recycled Voss water bottles, so you’re really coming here to eat great food. When you order from the menu of over 20 different dosa options, start with the masala dosa and a few plates of samosa chaat. We like that the masala dosa is buttery, which balances out the spicy potatoes inside, and that the samosa stays firm under the mountain of chutney and yogurt.
