Cheap Eats 2013: Kabob N Karahi

Quick reviews of ethnic cuisines you can experience for less than $25 a person, tax and tip included.

It’s not much to look at—and the fluorescent bulbs overhead don’t help—but dishes at this counter-service Pakistani/Indian spot could go head to head with those at far fancier places. Try tender, slow-roasted lamb chops; the KK Special, a combo of bone-in chicken tikka and spice-flecked kofta (ground beef); or chicken karahi, fragrant with garlic and ginger and best sopped up with puffy, freshly baked naan.
