Indian “Newstand” Is Now Bombay Fast Food
Last week in the forums, there was talk of Khodiar aka Taj Delhi aka the Newstand chaat place having moved. I didn’t remember hearing anything about this and immediately became concerned, naturally. I head over to 6th ave btw. 37+38th to confirm that, indeed, the establishment is still there… with yet another new name. Midtown Lunch’ers, meet Bombay Fast Food.
The operation inside looked exactly the same to me (except for the new menus). Pizza in the front and two Indian food counters in the back – one dedicated to vegetarian items and chaat and the other to non-vegetarian dishes.
I got some aloo chole chaat just to make sure everything was still intact. And sure enough, it was still delicious and a great deal at $5, though the debate rages on about if it’s as good as it used to be (I think the quality has dipped slightly in the last few years, but not enough to detract from what a great lunch it is).
More important than issues of quality, how many name changes is this place going to go through?
