I've been passing by this restaurant since the time of inception as they took over the space. Tonight, after 3 months back from my trip frim India eating at I the best Indian restaurants which I made sure to go to, I decided to try Tulsi.
I am glad that I have the opportunity to evaluate what a Michelin Star chef cooking Indian food in New York is like.
The place is modern as you can see. Their menu varies from food from the north to the South in this restaurant.
I ordered Shrimp Balchao as my first course. It was good but I wasn't impressed. It reminded me more of a Philippine seafood dish called escabeche. It had tomato sauce, onions as a base and I could taste the sugar.
Another disappointing dish I ordered was the fried okra. I enjoyed this very much in Jaipur when my Tourguide ordered it. That was nice green thin slices of okra fried crisp. But at Tulsi:
For dessert, I wanted to try something new.
Now, my curiosity has just been fixed!

For me, this is so far the best fried chicken in the city. Lightly battered which pulls out easily with the most juicy chicken inside.
I ordered the fried chicken box. It comes with 3 pieces of fried chicken of your choice, a large homemade biscuit served with maple butter and a choice of side - mine was Collard green salad with tangy dressing, avocado, (cooked or is it pickled) onion, and roasted coconut.
