New to the DC area and looking for a place to fill in for our beloved Viks Chaat corner from Berkeley. Any place around here specialize in indian street food and snacks?
Heritage in Dupont Circle has an Indian street food menu as part of their regular menu but also for their Happy Hour special. I love the food there, especially the street food menu which is quite affordable. They call it the "Hawker Zone" menu:
Shineys in Annandale is a complete hole in the wall that offers good chaat and other snacks, as well as a very extensive dessert selection.
Shineys is the best, I agree, though it is Pakistani, they will have very good chaat papri and hot pepper pokori.
The Heritage India Dupont, as recommended above, is a fancy restaurant with some mighty fine vittles including bhel puri, gobi massalam, and the patra. Impressive.
Uduupi Palace in MD has a ton of snacks in the case when you first walk into the restaurant. Other than that, its real specialty is southern Indian.
