What Gandhi’s lacks in ambience (wood-paneled walls, plastic plants) it makes up for in portion size. The East Indian lunchtime spot, housed in the shell of a former Burger King, dishes up tummy-busting servings of piquant chicken vindaloo, curried potatoes and lip-burning stewed tomatoes, all heaped over a veritable mountain range of rice. Don’t let the long line deter you—counter service is zippy and friendly, and no dish will set you back more than $8. Try the combination plate ($7.25), which gets you two chicken dishes and two veggies. The resulting muddle might resemble earth-toned sludge (ask for cilantro or tangy mint chutney to add some green to the mix), but it tastes way better.
