Best Cosmo Ever

After a most lovely facial at Lia Schorr with Lydia, we made our way across and up to East 58th St to Yuva, an Indian oasis of cocktails and yumminess.

Apple Flash does this drink an injustice!
The sauces that are served with the hummus chips are awesome :

I don't know what they are called but the bottommost red one is very refreshing and sweet but the green to its right is extremely spicy!! Proceed with caution!

9 Different Sauces
Crab cakes were super good with lots of crab meat - real crab meat, herbs and a crispy crust. This is not your typical fake crab cake with filler.

Super good crab cakes.
These were some of the best samosas I've ever had. Flaky, crispy dough filled with chickpeas and potatoes, well seasoned with a hint of spice. Very good!!
Awesome Samosa!
This is not on the take out menu but it is one of the best appetizers ever!! The dough seemed like samosa flattened but the sauce and the stuff on top is so delicious!!! I could eat the whole plate!

No Idea what this is.
Garlic naan!! It was good but not as good as Jackson Diner where there's a lot more garlic punch. Here, you get the hint but not the pungent aroma of garlic. Still, it is a nice bread.

Not-so Garlicky Naan
And finally, the rose ice cream which is like eating frozen rose petals! It smelled like roses and tasted of roses. Delicious!!!
Rose Ice Cream
We had 2 cosmo's which I normally do not love but here, it was really good. I would totally come here again for real food!
