The Indian subcontinent is a giant piece of naan that drifted slowly through the ocean before slamming its flavors into Eurasia. Align your face's tectonic plates to give the continent a nibble in return with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh Indian and Bhutanese fare and drinks at Tandoor Indian Cuisine in Williamsburg Village.
Lunch and dinner seekers can sneak away to Tandoor Indian Cuisine's charming brick-and-mortar abode for a fulfilling feast. The menu of fresh Indian and Bhutanese fare sports an extensive variety to appease even the pickiest of palates. The available dishes are neatly organized by protein and preparation style to make for easy ordering. If you’re in the mood for sea-sourced sustenance, try a plate of shrimp curry or spicy tuna vindaloo (both $13.95). Alternatively, if you've been diagnosed with the Ariel complex and find yourself romanticizing the fruits of solid ground, try a lamb specialty such as safed maas (lamb with coconut milk and cashews, $12.95) or a classic chicken dish such as chicken tikka masala ($11.95). Herbivores find happiness within the fried pastry shell of vegetable samosas ($2.75 for two) and meat-free specialties such as shahi paneer, homemade cheese, cashews, and raisins submerged in a savory bath of cream sauce ($10.95).
The restaurant's most prided plates come from the tandoor oven, a vase-shaped clay kitchen gadget ancestral to the Punjab region, situated between India and Pakistan, as seen in the illuminated engravings of Betty Crocker’s 1897 quest for the perfectly cooked meal. To cook food in the tandoor, a charcoal fire is built at the bottom, and the resulting hot embers impart a rich, smoky flavor to the meat or bread prepared within. Complement the barbecued flavors of chicken ($8.95 for a half order) or shrimp ($13.95) tandoori with an order of freshly baked, tender naan ($1.95) or aloo matar paratha (unleavened wheat bread stuffed with potatoes and peas, $2.95).
