A beloved food cart heads indoors and only gets better
Tiffin Asha, one of our picks for Thrillist’s Prime 13 best new restaurants of the year, already had its fair share of stans for its N Mississippi food cart that first opened in 2013. Now that it's moved to a brick-and-mortar -- the downstairs of an apartment building -- in August, the restaurant's voice is stronger than ever, ensuring their South Indian plates get the attention the underserved cuisine is due. Cart favorites like the Hot Chick (a chicken pakora, pickled kale, and black cardamom infused-honey stuffed dosa) carried over to Tiffin Asha 2.0's menu, but the expansion of new dishes parade chef Elizabeth Golay's virile curiosity into the cuisine that her co-owner and partner, Sheila Bommakanti, grew up eating. Don't sleep on the Sweet & Salty dosa, where blue cheese and honey is flourished with fleur de sel, or the idli fries dipped in a house-made curry ketchup.
