New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Thelewala traffics in Indian street food, but it looks and tastes more gourmet than that. Connoisseurs will appreciate the lightness, brightness and crunch of the jaal moori, a picturesque mold of puffed rice, peanuts, red onions, potatoes, lime and olive oil. The signature chicken roll is another delight, packed with fried eggs and a blend of spices. This mini eatery is part of a restaurant portfolio that includes the superb Dhaba and Bhojan in Curry Hill. Prices are lower here, in keeping with its college-student environs, and ordering is done at the counter. Seating consists of a few stools, so it's more for takeaway.
