Anjappar (Southern Indian cuisine) is one of my favorite restaurants in all of New York City. My girlfriend and I frequent the place at least once a month (for takeout now) but often more. I was first exposed to Northern Indian food on London's Brick Lane. The first time I had it, it was an explosion of wonderful flavors that I had never experienced before. I quickly fell in love then with Northern Indian food, the most popular Indian cuisine outside of India and I have fallen in love with Indian food all over again. This time with discovering Southern Indian food at Anjappar. Southern Indian cuisine, Anjappar's specialty, has introduced me to an array of incredible dishes and flavors that I never knew existed. And now, Southern Indian food at Anjappar is my favorite food on planet Earth. Lastly, the staff is really lovely, especially the manager. He takes great pride in what he does. I cannot recommend Anjappar more. If you are looking for extremely authentic Southern Indian food my girlfriend tells me (she's from Southern India), Anjappar is the place. And if you are new to Southern Indian food, but are looking for a new and exciting culinary experience that will open your eyes at the sheer possibilities of truly amazing food from another part of the world, then Anjappar is also for you.
