Chutney. Good, right? Dosas and South Indian food. Also good, yes? Yes. Put them together and you have a delicious combination that can be found at Hampton Chutney in Amagansett in the Hamptons.
What started off as just a chutney company, Hampton Chutney has since expanded to a full menu restaurant with its original location in the Hamptons, and two locations in NYC. The menu mainly focuses on their dosas and uttapams, but you can also find sandwiches, salads and a number of sides and beverages.
I went for one their Grilled Portobello Mushroom Dosa (with Spinach and Balsamic Roasted Onions). You also choose a chutney of your choice, and I chose their Pumpkin. Both were a slam dunk. The dosa itself is thin, light, crisp along outsides and nice and soft around the filling. The portobellos are flavorful, plump, and go real nicely with the slight acidity of the balsamic onions and freshness of the spinach. But, the real star here was the chutney. It had a subtle sweetness and a really amazing spice and heat to it. Sweet and spicy, a winning combination.

The Long and Short: Would I go back? Definitely. I’ve had their food before from their SoHo location in NYC, but had to check out their O.G. location in the Hamptons.
Would I recommend it? For sure, the food is affordable, delicious, and the chutneys are pretty bomb.
