Best of Philly

2022 Indian Restaurant

Mallu Cafe

In addition to offering one of our favorite biryanis, this strip-mall spot in the Far Northeast has all sorts of South Indian menu items that are hard to find elsewhere in Philly: aromatic rabbit fry, Kerala-style crab roast, and the fiery tamarind and ginger curry. Bonus: You can get your eyebrows threaded next door and pick up Indian groceries two doors down. Win-win.
