Punjabi Dhaba= Swill

Never been a huge fan despite the love this Indian truck stop gets here but since I live in Inman Sq. I'll go once every couple of months. Not any more though, after tonight. Lets start at the counter where the cashier basically throws my receipt at me after crumpling it into a ball with my change. A unique approach to hospitality at least. I noticed too, that (if possible) this place is filthier than I remembered it and I'm not that picky about cleanliness and I was ordering takeout anyway. I've always found there food to be both watery and greasy at the same time (a pretty good trick) and tonight was no different. The Tikki Marsala was bland and greasy, warm not hot. The Aloo Gobi (cauliflower and potato) was cold-- like taken from the refrigerator cold. Tandori Roti was stale, an impressive trick for bread that's made to order. The Pakoras were simply inedible. This is simple, standard Indian food made without regard to any standards. Luckily I wasn't expecting much....
