Famous Dal Wagon Spotted in Midtown West
On Wednesday as I was walking back from lunch I passed the “Famous Dal Wagon” parked on the NE corner of 39th and 6th. I was on maternity leave last summer when this cart first made an appearance in midtown, so this was my first sighting. But from what I can gather it looks like they are tricked out with a new look and promoting specials other than dal.
As much as it says “Famous Dal Wagon” it seemed to be all about the “Puri Bhajji” which are 2 for $3 or 4 for $5. I recognized the puri to be small puffy fried dough (big fan), but I wasn’t sure what the bhajji involved, from one of the photographs it looked like some sort of curried potatoes. Unfortunately the guy behind the cart that day wasn’t able to shed any further light on this–his answer to any question I asked was yes. I would love to have given it a try but I have a nut allergy and since I couldn’t clarify if there were any nuts, I had to give it a skip. If you’ve had a chance to check out this dish let us know your thoughts in the comments!
