Bhabi's Kitchen

Cathleen | Feb 12, 2004 12:12 AM

I had dinner at Bhabi's kitchen tonight on Toni G's recommendation. Talk about character! It's tiny, painted lavender. Bollywood music videos play on the t.v. Bhabi is in the kitchen, and her husband mans the front of the house and tells customers all about what they're eating. He invited us into the kitchen to see the tandoor.

The butter chicken and the broccili rabe were both very good, but the real star was Bhabi's special bagary baigan, eggplant in sesame sauce (flavored with poppy seed, toasted coconut and lemon). Mr. Syed insisted that we take the leftover sauce home with us. It takes hours to make and he just couldn't throw it away.

The only item not to my liking was the Jawar, or sorghum flour bread,which is dense and kind of bland.

I should add that the place is a really good value. Almost all of the entrees are 6 or 7 dollars.
