Try goat brains at Adda
Stationed on a quiet street in Long Island City, Adda is a newcomer to the neighborhood. The walls of the casual restaurant are plastered with newspaper clippings from India, and the kitchen leans into the homey feel by serving Indian food you’d often find being prepared on the street or at home. There are simmered goat brains – often likened to scrambled eggs – rife with ginger, red-stained tandoori chicken, and goat biryani hiding under a drum of blistered bread. But you’d be remiss not to order a mango lassi, a bright yellow version that’s thick and creamy.
