Indian, maybe, I wouldn't know. Chinese--very few foodies rate NYC above L.A., SF, Toronto, Vancouver.

You seem upset by the Mexican food thread. You okay, little guy?

They all have the best Indian cuisine, including many not named here.

I'm not talking about a sphere of cultural influence. I'm talking about New Jersey as a whole.
Philly can't claim their proximity to NJ's Indian cuisine as an asset to Philly because NJ does not get afforded the same luxury.

I would generally agree with the region between Philadelphia and New York City as having great options for Indian food. From South Indian Tamil to Kashmiri to Gujurati to Bengali, New Jersey seems to have it all.

New York City itself has those same kind of options, and so does Milbourne, PA.

It's interesting because you never have a comparison of places with good Indian food.

Are you intentionally trying to not understand me?
NY can't claim whatever asset NJ has either (and they most likely wouldn't). NY & Philly don't offer NJ such privileges, so neither one can claim ours.
If you enjoy Indian food in New Jersey; say New Jersey has good Indian food.

PS
I've have my fair share of Indian in New Jersey & quite enjoyed it, but I have not experienced enough Indian cuisine outside of the state to say who is best. My only intention is to point out that Philly or anyone else can't take credit for NJ offerings.

You can find all of those cuisines in the LA and SF areas, as well.

Indian food in NYC actually, on the whole, didn't seem to be any "better" or "worse" than it is in LA. Never tried Jersey. IMHO, the best Indian places that I've been to, overall, are in Boston and Cambridge.

I thought this thread would be a bit more interesting because Indians seem to be spread out all over the United States, unlike a huge concentration of Chinese or Mexicans or Italians in one or two places. Despite having the largest concentration in and around NYC, that only makes up 1/8 of the Indian population in the US.

I wouldn't be totally surprised if the top Indian restaurant is in some small town in the middle of nowhere.
