Where to eat in Harris Park
This colourful South Indian street food-inspired restaurant is bustling every night with local families sharing huge plates of dosas, dhal curries and other vegetarian dishes. First up, order a tall glass of nimbu masala. It’s a refreshing riff on a lemon squash that delivers a savoury hit with cumin notes punching through the sour soda. The cheese dabeli sees a soft bap-like roll doused in grated cheese, sandwiching even more cheese mixed with potato and studded with spicy peanuts. Dip it in the mint sauce for a fresh kick, or try the funky, sweet tamarind sauce.
We fully appreciate the mesmerising draw of the flashing rainbow lights that adorn the cottages along Harris Park’s famous eat street, Wigram Road, but just around the corner is a restaurant that is specialising in Indian food with a strong southern accent. Coconut Grove will certainly make you a thick, rich butter chicken or throw tender chunks of paneer through a tomato sauce fragrant with roasted spices. But to get the most out of this elegant eatery we recommend you flip through to the back of the menu to where seafood is the star.
