Warning: Don’t watch the above video while hungry.
Stereogum’s Amrit Singh just released the trailer for his documentary Dosa Hunt, which is scheduled to be released this spring. In the film Singh and his friends Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend), Vijay Iyer (Vijay Iyer Trio), Himanshu Suri (Das Racist), Alan Palomo (Neon Indian), and Anand Wilder (Yeasayer) travel through the streets of New York in a hunt for the perfect dosa.
You can follow the film on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr. I’ve long maintained that the best dosa in New York can be found at the Ganesha Temple canteen in Flushing, Queens. Hopefully they visited during filming.
