Meet Thiru Kumar, the Celebrated Dosa Man of Washington Square Park

In this video from Gothamist producer Jessica Leibowitz, meet the famous "Dosa Man" of Washington Square Park, Thiru Kumar, and his epic moustache.

In 2007 he won a Vendy Award, and from there business started to boom. Eventually, a vegan food vendor specializing in exotic offerings became par for the course in New York—still, on a daily basis, Kumar contends with a constant barrage of pickup orders via texts and phone calls as well as an unending line of customers, all while serving up hundreds of dosas each day.

Read the accompanying article for more on Kumar and his NYDosas cart.
