brief updates on Punjabi Dhaba and Khao Sarn

Limster | Mar 1, 2004 01:56 AM

Good cheap Indian again at Punjabi Dhabi. A variety of sweet and tangy flavours in an array of chaat (personal fave was the paneer chaat with big white cubes of clean-tasting Indian cheese), a satisfying chicken tikka marsala, a decent to good ground lamb kebab, chickpea curry, and creamy spinach curry/saag paneer.

The old hits at Khao Sarn are still good: spicy sweet pork jerky, tender to the extreme, delicious with the glutinous rice; bright toasty Miang Kum, with beautifully interlocking flavours sweet, sour and spicy, edged with the vegetal taste of the spinach leave wrap. Stir fried mung bean vermicelli/pad woo sen was very competently made, and the tamarind chicken while ok, were the weakest of the lot perhaps reflecting their weakness in curries and such sauces that lack a native depth and complexity.
