Irani Tangdi Kebab

$13.00 · 2 Reviews

Quiet enough for conversation and with an alfresco option for cool nights, Muthu's Curry at Dempsey has just the right vibes for a date night or a nice family meal. Foodwise, the wide array also makes this a good option for group dinners. If you choose to have a banana leaf meal, opt for the Biryani Rice ($4 per person) and the Fish Head Curry (small, $22). You might go for the commonly ordered Tandoori Chicken, but you should really order the lesser known, incredibly tasty Irani Tangdi Kebab ($13) — chicken drumsticks marinated in cream that melt in your mouth. Also sensational is their tender Fish Tikka ($11.50). If you're more in the mood for bread, we urge you to try the Romali Roti ($5.50) over the ubiquitous naans. "Rumal" means "handkerchief", explaining the thin, large form of the bread, which goes excellently with tandoori dishes.
Avg Price: $25 per person

I usually come here for dinners with the family whenever we're craving Indian food. We always get biryani rice which comes with 2 veg each, then order other meat dishes to share. Their rice and fish head curry is always satisfying, but it is this dish I can never get enough of. Two chicken drumsticks marinated in cream and spices, then grilled till charred in spots and utterly delicious. This is also one of the rare spots that serves romali roti, a large, thin blanket-like bread that is light and goes with everything! Since you probably already know what butter naan tastes like, try this next time!
