New York City’s culinary scene is virtually unrivaled in the States, but its Indian cuisine has always left a little something to be desired. That’s why locals and visitors were excited when Adda Indian Canteen opened toward the end of 2018. In its short time in the city the restaurant has garnered a reputation for serving delicious Indian dishes with a focus on traditional flavors.
Executive chef Chintan Pandya is originally from Mumbai and set out to recreate his mother’s flavors in his cooking. I’m not sure what those flavors are exactly, but they’re certainly tasty! I had a bowl of goat curry, or junglee mas, that was unlike any Indian dish I’ve tasted before. In addition to the incredible flavors, what’s great about Adda is nearly everything on the menu is less than $20.
The restaurant itself isn’t much to look at. Located in an industrial neighborhood near the edge of Long Island, you can actually hear the train overhead. The walls inside are stark opposites, one decorated in tin while the other is covered with news clippings and articles from India. The space is small, and crowded, but that’s to be expected in NYC. The staff is courteous and friendly, and definitely a highlight of the restaurant.
While I wish I’d had more time to sample the menu, what I did taste was spectacular and certainly worth a return visit.
