Indian food has been a part of Philadelphia’s culinary landscape for a long time — so long that there’s no specific neighborhood devoted to it, but rather a spray of outposts scattered around: biryani on Ridge Pike in Eagleville, goat curry in Northeast Philly, Punjabi cuisine in Chester County, dosa just over the bridge in Cherry Hill. The Indian canon is broad and fractious in its variety of regional specialties, so here’s a must-hit list for those looking to expand their tastes beyond tandoori chicken.
A couple days back, Danya Henninger from the Philly Zagat blog put together a great list of the 20 best secret menu items at restaurants in Philly. And while yes, there are a few odd ones in there to round out the list (the pork pastrami sandwich at Fitler isn’t exactly “secret” and the blistered shishito peppers at Bar Ferdinand come with the patatas bravas), but that doesn’t matter because the list, as a whole, is awesome for those who don’t already know about the existence of these dishes, and a fantastic reminder of some of the best one-off plates in the city for those seen-it-all souls who think they already know everything.
