Pongal

$$$$
Written by

There are a ton of Indian spots along the stretch of streets that extend from the high 20s to the low 30s on Lexington Avenue, including the majority of the city’s kosher Indian restaurants. Pongal - named after a popular harvest festival in South India and a sweet rice dish - stands apart from the rest with exceptional service and its overall affordability. The menu here is seemingly endless, but in an effort to try as many dishes as possible, get a couple of combination platters for the table - each one includes rice, bread, samosas, yogurts, curries, and sweet chutneys that help with some of the spicier dishes. You’ve got two things to order outside of those combinations: the mixed vegetable utthapam (a traditional rice and lentil pancake) and a mango lassi, which helps wash everything down seamlessly.
