Looking for restaurants that offer bitter melon on the menu. Indian, Chinese, anything goes. Thanks!

  1. Ask at your local Chinese restaurant, assuming they have a Chinese customers. They usually do not advertise it on the menu as non Chinese customers that order it usually do not like it.

    1. I recall seeing it at Mustang Thakali Kitchen, listed as karela.

      Mustang Thakali Kitchen
      74-14 37th Ave, Queens, NY 11372

      1. It's available at Bei Gang.


        Main Street Imperial Taiwanese Gourmet
        59-14 Main St, Queens, NY 11355

        1. Love the karela at Ghoroa on Hillside in Jamaica Queens. Haven't found anything else quite like it (so far at least). Give it a try if you can.
