I know I have blogged briefly about Hampton Chutney's naturally gluten-free Dosa's...but it was brief. And I had to write a more detailed post about this cafe. I was first introduced to their naturally gf dosa's when my mom took me to their Amagansett, NY location. This is on the far tip of Long Island; the place where celebs and trendsetters vacation for the summer.
I was there last summer, and that started my love affair for Hampton Chutney. They have a large variety of dosas which are made from lentil flour and filled with eggwhites or chicken and goat cheese. The possibilities are endless and the dosa's are huge. There are 13 different dosa variations to choose from and 5 different chutney's.
A Dosa is a light, crispy, sour-dough crepe made from rice and lentils.
My favorite is the Breakfast Dosa which has eggwhites, spinach, avocado, sundried tomatoes and your choice of either jack cheese or goat cheese. It comes with your choice of Chutney and I like Mango. I keep going back for breakfast and it is a ritual when I am out in the Hamptons. Lucky for me they have two locations in NYC. One on the Upper West Side and the other in Soho, NYC.
Each crepe though different in it's fillings are all hits at the various 3 locations in NYC and the Hampton's. Some of the dosa options are the classic masala dosa with spiced indian potato filling or grilled portobello mushrooms, spinach and balsamic roasted onions with goat cheese, seasonal grilled corn, roasted peppers, roasted onions, arugula and jack cheese or curry chutney chicken, spinach and balsamic roasted onions. Those are just a few to mention as there are so many other great dosa's on this list.
Be careful! The only location with a bathroom is the Upper West Side location. It's their nicest one. The location in Soho, NYC is right around the corner from the 6 subway train. Yee Haw!
Lately the press and buzz about Hampton Chutney is that they are now promoting the fact that they are gluten-free. It's been in the paper and it's on their website.
For all you non-dosa lovers out there, Hampton Chutney also serves sandwiches, rice, yogurt and brownies-all of which are NOT gluten free.
I highly recommend this hidden gem for breakfast or brunch any day or every day! This is one of my FAVORITE places to eat gluten-free. I take everyone I know here, and most of my friends eat gluten. They are blown away by the dosa's. You will be blown away too. You will crave it. They are so good!
