King Mahal Restaurant
Specializing in Northern Indian fare, the kitchen staff at King Mahal Restaurant bakes and fries dishes as they slip between wreaths of steam rising from simmering pots of sauce. As diners settle into tables, they pass hunks of naan or whole-wheat roti and dishfuls of pakoras to busy hands and keep away the shadow puppets that ruined Thanksgiving. Abundant vegetarian entrees parade alongside curries in a rainbow of colours, and cooks roll meats in spices before baking them in a tandoor oven. Piles of rice soak up sauces, and a fountain of mango and lassi beverages help keep tongues cool throughout each repast.
