indian food in the twin cities: a slow motion survey


Recommended Posts

when you have a blog and when you start reviewing restaurants on that blog you eventually find yourself embarking on dubious ventures like surveying the state of indian restaurants in the twin cities.

 

my first report is of bawarchi in plymouth. specialists in south indian food, and surprisingly decent. there's also a long preamble about the state of indian food in the u.s that is sure to please many american foodies.

House of Curry in Rosemount (Sri Lankan, I know, but I'm going to call it Indian) was recommended to me.

I thought I'd share:  

if you would have read my opus with the care it deserves you would know that indians are now the second largest asian community in minnesota, just slightly behind the hmong.

 

Things are more promising in NY. Wikipedia -

 

 

The New York City Metropolitan Area is home to approximately 600,000 Indian Americans, representing the largest Asian Indian population in the Western Hemisphere.

 

I've noticed things getting markedly better over the last 10 years although there's still a long way to go. I suspect the demographics are driving this.

Yes, it does.

 

I haven't eaten in Edison. Part of the reason is that it's somewhat inconvenient to reach. It's a 33 mile drive from my house, including 2 pricey bridge tolls and driving through the permanent road construction zone on Staten Island.

 

When the construction wraps up in about a year I think I'll check Edison out.

do you have any leads there? I can convince my wife to do that trip - especially once the bad weather starts.

more than a decade old and probably gone. i can ask friends who live around there if you like. i remember being taken out to a crackerjack hyderabadi meal (in somerset, maybe?) back in 2006--it wasn't a hyderabadi restaurant, but they had a bunch of hyderabadi dishes.
