Must try: Tokri Chaat, Samosa Chaat, Onion Rava Dosa
From diamonds to dosas! That is the story behind the popular eatery called Mumbai Xpress.
The owner Mahendra Shah, a diamond merchant, traded in his gems to pursue his wife Hina’s passion and talent in cooking.
Mumbai Xpress, celebrates the owners roots and brings to you all the delights of Mumbai street food and much much more. Items such as misal pav, bhel puri, pav bhaji and so on are just a few of their specialties. They also have a large variety of South Indian specialties such as Dosas and Indian Chinese dishes too.
This vegetarian oasis in Floral Park, Queens serves really home style dishes. My favorite dish here is their Tokri Chaat which is a basket made with crsip shredded potaes and it is filled with a melange of sprouts, soaked chckpeas and covered in different chutneys.
Some of other dishes to try are most of the chaat items that have yogurt in them. They have a very nice onion Rava dosa and their samosa chaat is very good too.
With Bollywood tunes playing on an overhead TV and the aromas of authentic Indian cooking from the kitchen, one could actually imagine being back home.
Here is some of what we ate:
Paneer and Roti
Mysore Masala Dosa
