Sweet-Potato Tempura at Kyo Ya

Kadu chalow at Bamiyan
Paprika, cinnamon and a touch of brown sugar bring out the natural sweetness of butternut squash, which is balanced by forkfuls of salty basmati rice. The whole concoction is an Afghan classic that melts on your tongue like cotton candy. 358 Third Ave at 26th St (212-481-3232, bamiyan.com). $12.95.

Pickled cauliflower at Bklyn Larder
The ten-ounce jars of pickled cauliflower at this grocery from the folks at Franny's are finely brined indeed: Sweet and spicy, they rarely survive the trip home. 228 Flatbush Ave between Sixth Ave and Bergen St, Park Slope, Brooklyn (718-783-1250, bklynlarder.com). $6.

Palmitos fries at Yerba Buena

Sweet-potato tempura at Kyo Ya
A skin-on half of a Japanese sweet potato—steamed, fried in a fragile tempura crust, then sprinkled with salt—is a reminder of how basic ingredients can amount to perfection. 94 E 7th St between First Ave and Ave A (212-982-4140). $9.
