Little Foodie Gem: Pakistan Tea House

A sliver of a shop located on Church and Reade, the Pakistan Tea House is something I had just heard about but never visited.

At 10:00 pm in the Financial District, I was half starved and eager to find a joint that would serve me a decent meal. Most restaurants in this area not far from Wall Street close their doors early, and I was ready to try anything, especially my beloved Indian comfort food.

The Pakistan Tea House is small but immediately I could see their dishes--everything from aloo sag (potato and chickpea curry) to their naan bread was prepared fresh without too much oil. It is baked fresh in a tandoor clay oven and served piping hot.

The curries are arguably the freshest and best I have tasted in New York City, and the rose lassi (rose flavored yoghurt smoothie) are noshes of Heaven. This is your mom's style cooking: generously flavored without being overdone, and a long cry away from greasy spoon. During lunch hours, cabbies line up to get their meals and the wait can be long, but the $8 meal (extra with rice) is so well worth a trip to the Financial District that you'll likely end up a repeat customer.

At least, I did.
