Imli Cafe & Hookah Bar Coupons and Deals
Stay in New York long enough, and anyone is bound to be itching for some great outdoor spaces. As far as we're concerned, Williamsburg’s Imli Cafe is backyard paradise. From the spicy Indian dishes to the fragrant hookah, we like to take it all in while relaxing under beautiful lighting, big trees and breezy canopies. Bring some friends and share a few orders of fiery masala fries (French fries made with traditional Indian masala spices) or the crispy samosa chaat (a turnover filled with potatoes, chutney and chaat masala). We recommend following it swiftly with the mint chicken tikka (boneless chicken marinated in a flavor-packed blend of cilantro, ginger, garlic, mint and basil, skewered and cooked to perfection in the cafe’s clay oven). Imli also offers plenty of delicious vegan and vegetarian options, from the aloo gobi (cauliflower and potatoes sauteed with tomatoes, ginger, green chili and ginger) to the saag paneer (pureed spinach and paneer simmered in onion, green chili and ginger). One last pro-tip: stick around for some malai kulfi (homemade cardamom-spiced ice cream) and ask for a “Rum- Runner” hookah, a unique combination of shisha (tobacco) and rum that will leave you feeling clean and crisp as the garden around you. Menu Highlights: Masala Fries, $2.95 Samosa Chat, $6.95 Mint Chicken Tikka, $10.95 Saag Paneer, $10.95 Hours: Monday - Thursday, 12 p.m. - 12 a.m. Friday - Saturday, 12 p.m. - 2 a.m. Sunday, 12 p.m. - 12 a.m.
New York is thought of as a melting pot for many reasons, but we suspect the melt-in-your-mouth fare has as much to do with it as the collision of cultures. Get a taste of some of the city's finest with today's deal from Imli Cafe in Williamsburg: Pay $15 for $30 to spend on food and non-alcoholic drinks. The eclectic eats at this sleek bar are largely inspired by the Indian subcontinent, from crisp vegetable samosas to creamy chicken tikka. You'll find plenty of twists on the menu, too, like tandoori-style teriyaki chicken, Seekh kebabs, and french fries sprinkled with masala spices. The dimly lit dining room provides an intimate scene for a night out with friends, with a hookah bar tucked in the back for those interested in a flavorful smoke. If you stop in for lunch, savor a fresh green salad or a pressed paneer sandwich -- these flavor fusions will have you melting with delight.
