Tangra Masala

Hats off to Eric Eto for bringing me to yet another restaurant which will leave me craving it's deliciousness in my sleep and eating up the balance on my metrocard. Everything I sampled at Tangra Masala ranged in quality from very good to supremely delectable.

Exact details are foggy but deep-fried, ground chicken croquettes were wonderful with a couple of squirts of lime and some of the mildly spicy dipping sauce to round out the flavor. Deep-red, dry beef Tangra Masala style looked like it would set my tongue afire but it was actually offered up a nicely balanced,low level of heat.

Actually I was imagining that everything was going to be blazingly hot but the food was more of the full, flavored slow burn variety which leaves me yearning for more. In contrast food of "thai-spicy" levels of heat, which I also love, usually leaves me begging for mercy by the end of the meal.
