Working late last night, I decided on a whim to order Indian delivery and saw a new name I hadn't tried before, Punjabi Tadka, on 10th Avenue near 49th St. I was not searching for authenticity, just some comfort food, so ordered the chicken tikka masala and a samosa chat, along with some garlic naan. There's a lot of terrible Indian delivery in my neighborhood, and I wasn't expecting much, but this was a very pleasant surprise. The naan was still steaming and that perfect combo of crispy/tender, and the tikka masala was rich, creamy -- and spicy! It had a depth of flavor that I was not expecting. The samosa chat was tasty, though it got pretty soggy by the time it was delivered.
Anybody else tried this place? I'm curious about some of the other offerings on the menu.
