Some of the best meals can only be described by using a series of colorful expletives, and Desi Tadka is no exception. This vegetarian Indian spot that serves Punjabi food has a lineup of dishes with such tremendous flavor that the occasional cursing is warranted. Use the onion kulcha—with red onion, green chilies, and whole spices baked into every square of dough—to scoop up heaps of sweet paneer tikka and bhindi masala, and let the profanity commence. Keep this place in mind for a takeout dinner or casual weekday lunch.
