1) We LOVED the octopus man. It was tender, delicious spicy I would get about five next time. (Prince between 38/39 Ave) I CAN't understand why the fellow from Westchester found it lacking.
2) We had GREAT pakistani on Main STreet across from the Botanic Garden. Chatkhara Kebab House. They had all the usuals but the specials were superb. The nan, flaky, hot, etherial. One note. Even the "mild" foods were pretty spicy. Yum!
