In yet another case of white people thinking that the sun, moon and stars revolve around them, Twitter saw a reputed news agency claim that the best Indian food is found in New York City.
The company posted an article on their Twitter page with the caption ‘The world’s best Indian food is in New York City.’ And boy oh boy, desis on the internet couldn’t hold themselves back from unleashing some well-seasoned sass and dropping a few words of wisdom on the post.

Here’s how people responded to the wild claim.
Oh my! I even entertained the wisp of a thought that the best Indian food in the world might be prepared and served in India. One is now better informed.— Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor (@AdhiamboKE) July 25, 2021
What an brainless article… best indian food is in indian homes made by our mothers, and in indian streets… indian food in NYC must not be having even 10% of that available here— Unbiased Defenestrator (@Dontpushyourluk) July 25, 2021
The best “Indian” food is always in the small nooks & corners in cities & towns in India.— Chirag Wakaskar (@chiragwakaskar) July 25, 2021

Have you people collectively shoved your minds in a pestel and ground it to a pulp with a mortar? What’s wrong with you?— SK (@SK10940154) July 25, 2021
Of course you forgot to mention there is no such thing as “American food” in New York. Even the burnt meat that is passed off as “steak” came from some age cavemen, forget chop suey, pizza and hamburger.— Chilarai (@chilarai) July 25, 2021
Have you ever explored the possibility that best Indian food might be present in India.— Aniket Vinchurkar (@AniVinchurkar) July 25, 2021
Is India not a part of your definition of ‘the world’?

We know every alien invasion takes place in New York, but this is taking the self-obsession a little too far!
