This North Indian snack shop is the new retail arm of a well-established wholesale business called Delicious Food. Of some 200 items prepared in repertory, perhaps a couple of dozen are served each day. Many are available in dollar-menu increments, like alu tikki ($2 total), potato cutlets stippled with bits of carrot and daikon.
That there are sweets goes without saying; I sampled an excellent semolina-based halwa still hot and crumbly from the kitchen. Thirst quenchers includes lime water, lassi, chai, and jal jeera — "cumin water" that's reputed to wake up the taste buds.
