Tawa’s executive chef crafts a diverse menu featuring traditional and contemporary takes on Indian culinary techniques. Tongues climb the spires of the inventive vegetarian vermicelli kebabs to liberate deep-fried potatoes stuffed with american cheese speared alongside paneer patties ($5.95). Chef Obhan draws on his upbringing by a family of culinarians in Mumbai to infuse baingan bhartha eggplant with an array of spices ($8.95) that let diners dabble in exotic flavors without the dangers of starting a food fight with Willy Wonka. Cooks dress charcoal-cooked tandoori chicken to speed-date cutlery in a red jacket of spices and yogurt sauce ($8.95), and the Sammundari sizzler platter calls together shrimp biryani with tandoori-cooked fish kebabs for medal-winning dives into panoply sauces ($17.95). Soothe spice-cloaked throats with authentic, nonalcoholic libations such as jeera and yogurt chaas, mango lassi, and Masala sodas ($2.50+).
Tawa’s steaming plates fill with additive-free fare crafted solely from natural ingredients, and cooks prep ingredients in the kitchen each day, ensuring dishes always know where to send letters home. Cheery chatter drifts between tables partitioned with bamboo shoots that shimmer under ambient red lighting.
