Edison NJ: Moghul Express

Oak Tree Road has always been the epicenter of Indian food in New Jersey. I haven't had a chance to visit for quite some time so I headed there as soon as I got off the airplane. The road is, amazingly, even more packed with Indian restaurants, supermarkets, and stores. I decided to grab lunch at Moghul Express across from the Oak Tree Mall. The style is typical for casual Indian restaurants, not to mention Southern restaurants: order at the counter, grab your number, and wait for your food to be brought to your table. Moghul Express serves north Indian, south Indian, and Indo-Chinese.

I ordered a dosa---Indian comfort food. I put my not-so-petite hand in the photo to give you an idea of just how huge the dosa was. The dosa itself had a slightly cheesy flavor; I'm sure it wasn't cheese but I would love to identify the flavor. The potato filling was warm and satisfying. The spices were rich but not overwhelming and left a slow burn at just the right level.

I also ordered a garlic naan. It was crispy at the edges, soft in the middle, and with a nice coating of butter and garlic.
