Totally Awesome: The Dosa Man Triumphs

Thiru Kumar (Image via NY Daily News)After two years of runner-up prizes at the Vendies, Thiru “Dosa Man” Kumar wins NYC’s top street food award.

I couldn’t be happier about it: the man’s kept me in shatteringly murugal, totally delicious rava dosa clover since B. and I first discovered his stand in Washington Square Park. NY Dosas’ offerings are not only authentic and perfectly executed: Mr. Kumar’s veganism and commitment to seasonal cooking (pay close attention to the sambar when you slurp it) inform and enhance the dishes. The Sri Lankan ginger beer doesn’t hurt, either.

I think I speak for all of us—the food enthusiasts, the homesick South Indians, the intrepid tourists, the NYU students and faculty who love him—when I say Romba sandhosham, saar!

    How fabulous! I too LOVE dosa, and it is hard to get a really good one in Australia.

    My first was in Bangalore, and I was a devoted fan at once. Since then I have had them all over India, in all shapes and sizes, varying degrees of crispness, and with a whole range of fillings.

    Glad you love them too.
