I was recently in Edison, NJ to do some errands. It's quite known that Edison has a large Indian population. So when the question of lunch was brought up, I jumped at the chance at eating there as well. So after everything was done, we walked over to Bombay Talk which is a diner looking type of cafe to get our grub on!
Anyway, the food. The menu is listed as fusion Indian food. It's fusion because it offers a variety of Indian cuisines, Chinese, Thai, and American. Is this some kind of magical restaurant?
To start, we had some sev puri that included puffed rice (bhelpuri), fried dough wafers (papdi), vegetables (lentils, onion, coriander), and string-like fried gram flour (sev). All together, I think it makes a pretty good snack to start the meal.
Masala is just spices, and a dosa is a pancake/crepe-like dough that's quickly cooked and folded over some filling.
The food at Bombay Talk was really good. I would definitely go again and try some of their other dishes. Though the service can be a little abrupt but quick, don't take offense. It's of their culture to work that way. It's fast and efficient which is all I asked for.
