Having heard that this strip was known for its casual, counter service restaurants where a solo budget traveler like myself could grab a meal and take to nearby Washington Square Park I stopped in to Thelewala recently and was blown away by the quick, cheap, and amazing food they served up. I had Malai Chicken rolls and a side of Peanut Masala, both were very tasty without being overpowering as too much street-inspired cuisine seems to be these days. A word of caution to non-American visitors though, don't estimate the portion size based on the prices, as I did. This is America, five dollars here gets you an entree not a snack! I ended up ordering way too much on the assumption that the rolls were so inexpensive that I'd need several to be full. Big mistake...big, delicious mistake!
