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

    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.

          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.
