Jassi Sweets Iselin: Divine Sweets, Devilish Pakoras

If you thought that Oak Tree Road winding through the ugly stretches of Edison and Iselin in New Jersey panders only to the craving for Indian curries you'd be so wrong.

Because there's a whole bunch of stores peddling a cornucopia of Indian sweets as well.

Besides the grocery store Pedas, Ladoos and Burfis sitting in the cooler or the Jalebis at the cash counter, there are at least eight stores in the two-mile stretch of Oak Tree Road that offer a choice of Indian sweets.

During a recent drive down Oak Tree Road, we suddenly felt an urge for some Indian sweets. We quickly pulled into the Jassi Sweets complex in Iselin.

Looks Like a Dump

Like a lot of Indian establishments on Oak Tree Road, Jassi Sweets too has the look of a dump inside.

As you enter, you notice a few tables in the middle, a menu on the wall, surly counter staff and a long glass case filled with Indian sweets to the right.

The place offers sugarcane juice as well for $4 but we gave it the pass this time. Perhaps on a later occasion.

We stuck to sweets and some Pakoras.

Delicious Sweets

The sweets were divine, one of the best in the New Jersey/New York area.
Every single sweet we tried at Jassi had a fresh taste and was extremely flavorful.

By the way, mixed sweets at Jassi cost $9.50 a pound.

Awful Pakoras

Au contraire, the Vegetable Pakoras at Jassi Sweets were the work of the devil.

Not only were the Pakoras tasteless but some of them were obscenely hard.

The two dipping sauces that came with the Pakoras, Mint and Tamarind, were also no good. The Tamarind sauce was sweet rather than being tangy.

Jassi Sweets Oak Tree Road - Poor Service

Service was painfully slow at Jassi.

Despite there being only three customers (including us), it took an eternity to complete our basic order.

The old man at the cash counter was a rude fella who yanked the credit card bill from our hand before we could even complete it.

Jassi Sweets Rating

Its service snafus and the horrid Pakoras aside, we can't wait to return to Jassi for its superb sweets. - © OakTreeRoad.us
