Spicey Chicken Tikka Masala

John Scar | Oct 3, 2003 02:45 PM found at the Royal Restaurant at 19919 Bissonnet. This dish is absolutely one of my favorite Indian-Pakistani dishes. This stew like dish comes out in a plastic bowl. and you are given a plastic plate and utensils. I think this place is more family style but the dih is not that big but for some reason it seemed like it was presented in a way that you would dish what you wanted and pass around. If I were with a larger group I think this place would be perfect for grazing because it is relatively cheap (the CTM was $5.99) and its very casual. The dish is made up of breast meat and has tons of fresh peppers floating in it. The masala is a brown gravy like stew on the surface with an yellowy/orange stain power. It was a little hard to eat with the naan only so I scooped up bites with my fork onto my bread.
For family oriented people. Get this, they even have a side of the restaurant solely devoted to families.
Maybe a chow outing can be had here. The only problem I could see is that it can be very spicey and some people can't take it while others(Me) can't get enough.
