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.
Kabobeesh, the exception West Philadelphia kebab spot is opening a second location. A lease has been signed to take over the former Latest Dish space on 4th Street between South and Bainbridge. Look for a fall opening.
City Paper asks Philly cab drivers where they like to eat when they’re looking for something fast cheap and perhaps spicy.
Kabobeesh at 4201 Chestnut Street, Fatou & Fama, 4002 Chestnut Street and New Delhi, 4004 Chestnut Street all stand out with the cabbies and give you a pretty good idea where you can catch a taxi in West Philly.
