What's the Difference Between Dutch Process and Natural Cocoa Powder?

@mschlock those are my go-to cookies too! and I use whatever cocoa I have, dutch or natural. They always turn out amazing.

First Look: Chobani Soho

I think you are underestimating the laziness of the American public--see: Starbucks.

A Tour of Kalustyan's, the Indian Specialty Food Megastore

Caution with Sinha--though he has a good selection, he is really rude. Don't let his sour attitude put you off of all the stuff he has.

7 Can't-Miss Dosas in NYC

Sarvana Bhavan has the WORST service. Makes the entire experience unpleasant. And ssp242, whoever told you that that's the service in South India, they're LYING. I've had some of the best service in South India. Sarvana Bhavan just sucks. Tiffinwala across the street has better dosas and better service.

A Tour of Kalustyan's, the Indian Specialty Food Megastore

The owners are definitely not Indian, and their upstairs market veers more towards Afghani/Persian foods. I really wouldn't call it an Indian market. South Asian would be a much more appropriate term.

Fast Food International: Caffe Bene

But how is the coffee?! In this coffee wasteland, it's helpful to know where to get a decent latte

Beyond Curry: Potato Bhaaji

Don't know if Charm City has favorites, but I sure do!! I'm not sure how many of these you guys have covered yet, but these are the Indian places my family returns to often:

Chola (58th btw 2nd and 3rd)
Devi (Though not has much now that the chef has gone over to Tulsi)
Tiffanwala (better than Sarvana Bhavan! Plus the waiters are way less rude)
Chinese Mirch for some authentic Chinese-Indian
The best Chinese-Indian around is actually in Edison, called Ming.

Best 20 New Burgers in NYC from 'Time Out New York'

ABV is a great new Harlem spot, though I haven't had the burger.

Weekend Cook and Tell: Lovin' Liver

Love liver in any form! But another version no one's mentioned yet that is a favorite of mine is the traditional tuscan crostini preparation--it's got chicken liver,anchovies AND capers in it--how's that for polarizing?! A few times when I was living in Florence and ordered it, the waiter would stop and confirm that I knew I was ordering liver. A few times they were even visibly shocked that an American would knowingly eat something other than chicken breast or turkey!

Cereal Eats: Great Grains with Raisins, Dates, Pecans (And What Curtis Stone Thinks)

This is my FAVORITE cereal it is so so delicious without being overly sugary.

Beyond Curry: Anda Bhurji (Spicy Scrambled Eggs)

yum anda bhurji is such comfort food to me. Best eaten with a slice of white bread as your utensil/roti/naan type.

Best hot chocolate in NYC?
