Lahore Karahi - Brief Report

Dave MP | Jun 14, 2007 05:09 PM

Went to Lahore Karahi last night with a friend. We shared:

Veggie Samosas - These arrived straight from the fryer, and they were good, not great. They were fresh, which was nice, but a bit greasy.

Bengan Bartha - This was one of the best versions of this dish that I've ever had. It was a perfect balance of sweet and savory, plenty of tomato mixed in with the eggplant. Really delicious.

Tandoori Fish - This was also excellent. Several pieces of tender sea bass, with lots of spices. Served sizzling w/ onions and lettuce. I definitely recommend this dish.

2 nan - They have great nan - nice yeasty taste.

1 order rice.

Service was a bit slow and spotty, but friendly. It's a bit disorganized in there, but these guys really know how to cook.

Total bill was somehow only 22 dollars before tip. A great bargain.

Lahore Karahi is near the corner of O'Farrell and Leavenworth.

Afterwards, we went to Mitchell's for ice cream. I tasted buko and jackfruit, opted for my usual banana. Good as always. My friend had Thai tea ice cream which I didn't care for, but she liked it. She got chocolate dip - I wasn't a huge fan of this either, the flavor wasn't quite right for me.
