BAM! Another tasty meal at Pao Walla in the Soho section of Manhattan on the corner of Sullivan and Spring Streets. . .plus, we get to chat with the mastermind behind this place: a dude called Floyd Cardoz. . .niiiice!
Floyd used to run a wonderful restaurant called Tabla. . .after many years of success he closed it to take a break and re-generate a bit. He has returned with a bang at Pao Walla. Floyd is from Mumbai, India, and this place is all about Indian cuisine with a focus on breads. India has great bread, and you can sample lots of these here along with delicious chutneys, spreads, dips, and garnishes. . .plus lots of extremely tasty small plates and absolutely delectable larger plates.
Some of the things we gobble during this visit are dogfish cooked in a banana leaf Kerala-style, an egg and cheese thing on bread–TOTALLY MAGICAL, grilled cauliflower, crab casserole, black pepper shrimp, etc. and so on. . .everything is washed down with a nice dry reisling from Alsace–jaaa!!
Please make an effort to eat at Pao Walla if you find yourself looking for something tasty down in the Soho section of Manhattan. . .you will love it–I gar-ron-taaaaayy!
