Sri Ganesh's Dosa House
Jersey City, NJ 07306
Village Voice's Description
While most southern Indian spots offer only a handful of dosas, at Sri Ganesh's-named after the handsome Hindu elephant god-the roster runs to 66. That means you can freak out and order pessaratu, its wrapper turned verdant green with herbs, or spring dosa, filled with sautéed onions and peppers but enfolding zero potatoes. Another strong point is the porridges, including upma (cream of wheat studded with toasted cashews) and pongal (lentils and mung beans with pungent spices). The accompanying coconut and peanut chutneys are made from scratch, and the free sambar is all you can eat.
Tips from foursquare
An amazing palace of vegetarian culture. Don't miss the upma porridge or the idly dumplings. Voted by our critics as the best foodie adventure in Jersey City!
