Famous Coney Is. Ave....though...Modernity Sends me to Inferno... [Lahore Chilli]

Lahori Chilli, a Pakistani venue offering delights for the tongue of man....and woman and child, at Coney Island Ave, Brooklyn, is just across a Hasidic or Orthodox Jewish venue called Famous (see photo below). I walked into Famous, a week ago, but it was not my lack of the common garb of Orthodox or Hasidic Jews that made me feel at odds, it was the absence of a wife, and 3 to 5 children in tow, that made me feel, at odds.

This may be a post as to feeling at odds, yet still feeling hunger, a conclusions for modern eaters.

Anyway, I dare say, across Ocean Ave from Famous, my appetite does gain a satisfaction that no gourmet pizza, tapas, or trendy burger boutique could ever come close to achieving.

This time, as before, only cost 5 dollars, and that is with fresh minutes prior to arriving to table, made bread, and a dish that was half the bean and veggie curry, and a sauce stew like chicken item.

The hot chilli that one can ask for is all that is needed to make the meal an inferno in the regions that Dante may have feared.

Thus said, I shall one day, venture towards the menu of Famous, as the volume of patronage does attest to something, popularity, thus its name, Famous.
