Lakruwana, Staten Island

Restaurant Vibe: Families (mostly South Asian), weird food couples from the city, men eating alone, and thrill-seekers like myself

Favorite item on the menu: Oof. From the buffet, everything but particularly the eggplant curry, the pork thing, and lentils, the green string bean and yucca situation. From the menu the lamprai, the hoppers, and the chicken briyani.

Ideal dinner mate: Go with a minimum of three people who have been fasting for at least 3 hours

Insider tip-off: Save room for the mango, sweet lassi, and the salt lassi.
