A minimally outfitted little storefront whose name means something like ?Viva India!,? Jay Bharat is a no-frills, order-at-the-counter classic sweet and snack shop with especially tasty food. Their dosas aren?t the largest in the neighborhood, but in this case size really doesn?t count: The crepe has a wonderful sourdoughlike tang and a delicate crispness. Also try the uttapam, a rice pancake at once crisp and soft. And, of course, the sweets.
