As a general rule of thumb, if you see a counter and a handful of booths in the back of an Indian grocery store, you should probably order something from there and eat it - it’s going to be good. For proof, head to the Dosa Factory and get a savory pancake so big it could almost be used as a kettlebell. They have fun varieties like Peking duck and corn and jalapeno in addition to the standard vindaloo and tikka masala. And if you’re not in the mood for a dosa at all, you can explore the large menu that covers just about anything you’re likely to find at an Indian restaurant. Don’t leave without getting one of the pastries (we liked the pistachio roll best).
