Thiru “Dosa Man” Kumar

Washington Square South at Sullivan Street



“The food is the best damn street food in town. The fresh made dosas are healthy, still relatively cheap, delicious, and just filling enough for a good sized lunch or light dinner. Thanks to this man, I have given up on cooking altogether during the school year (when I take classes around Washington Square Park). The vendor, himself, is a friendly, good human being. I heart him.”



“He's the nicest vendor I've ever met. He'll make everything exactly how you want it. If you're cashless he'll even give you food on the house. He only uses olive oil to make the food. He's supportive of vegan diets (since he only sells vegan food). He works rain or shine and always has a smile on his face. He isn't just a vendor -- he is a role model for us all.”

That place is so amazing. You've got to try it. I was happy when she profiled him-he talks to her quite a bit. I believe she might live around there, from the impression I was getting from him.



Anyways-he's a great guy, great food, and quite cheap. I was sad when I quit working around there. Next time I'm in that area, I'll go again, if he's there-I only live in Brooklyn, after all.

How funny that you mentioned this. I was flipping channels and saw this yesterday. I want to go, but I'm all the way in California.

Next time you guys go and see him, tell him to push his cart to Riverside



WAIT! A vegan cart in downtown San Diego? I was there 2 weekends ago... where is this? Are you talking about Cilantro Live? It's not a cart, but maybe that's what you're talking about. My bf and I want to live in San Diego

That is so cool! I had a feeling the cart would be in Hillcrest. If I visit again or move there, I'm SO going to try this place!

It's not in Queens. It's in Wash. Square Park, right off Sullivan. In the West Village. Unless you were stating your initial feeling, lol, then carry on, LOL!

I think danakscully was refering to the vegan hot dog cart in San Diego that I mentioned.
