Vegetarian South Indian Food
Pongal is a south Indian restaurant in Midtown offering lunch and dinner specials. They are Kosher certified and they boast "freshly prepared" food so plan on waiting 20-25 minutes for your meal.
They offer a wide selection, with almost any south Indian dish you've heard of - dosas, idli and vada, samosas, biryani, rice and curry dishes, and traditional Indian breads.
They don't offer a lunch buffet but they do offer lunch specials, many of which are vegan. Most dishes, unless specifically named "butter" or "cheese", are vegan, although it is always wise to ask.
