Indus Express Loses the Salad Bar; Newsstand Indian Gets Massive Makeover
Two of the better Indian lunches in Midtown have undergone some changes… Indus Express (on 48th btw. 5+6th) known for their giant version of the Kati Roll, has gotten rid of their salad bar- the lone holdover from City Market Cafe, the generic deli that originally occupied the space. They’ve added more seating in that space, plus a small table filled with Indian snacks that are now for sale.
But the real big changes have been happening at Khodiar Express, the vegetarian food inside the former Newsstand on 6th Ave. btw. 37+38th. See if you can follow this… the Gujarati Indian food, which used to be in the back left hand corner, has moved to the front, right next to Taj Delhi Chat which opened along the right hand wall two months ago. The latin food, which moved from the now closed Blimpie next door, to the back right hand corner of the “newsstand”, has also moved to the right hand wall. And finally, between the two, a Middle Eastern steam table has opened up, serving Israeli style falafel.
Got that all? If not, there are semi-helpful photos after the jump…

Considering how good Olympic Pita is (on 38th btw. 5+6th) I think it’s going to be awhile before I try the Israeli food… but I do have a date with some chaat in the near future.
