Cheap Eats 2018: Punjabi Junction

At this strip-mall Indian spot, the samosas are flakier and the pakoras lighter than others we’ve found. Dishes from the tandoor, such as chicken tangdi, are wonderfully juicy. Even the curries have more depth than you’ll typically taste. And did we mention breads? Cheese-filled naan, onion kulcha, and puffed puri all vie for the number-one slot. Also good: Goan fish curry; lamb korma; goat curry; yellow-lentil dal.
