(Globetrotter)...good indian chinese places...
Does such a thing exist?  Surely you aren't referring to the Indian places which deep-batter-fry all kinds of things and call them Chinese, e.g. "Gobi Manchurian?"
Ahh..I have yet to meet someone who dislikes "Punjabi Chinese" - nice one on the Hakka Noodles, globetrotter - I have always seen those in Indian-Chinese restaurants. Panzer

Pongol on East 27th in NY for South Indian. In London, the Red Fort on Dean Street in Soho is the best Indian food I have ever had. Full stop.

ya Vaish Indian tailor, ya ya. Long ago it was said "nature abhors a vaccuum". In the vacuum of info about Vaish, we drifted into indian and indian version of Chinese cooking. I would love to know of more of these "desi" style chinese places. If you looking for north indian food, I can rec Haandi on Lex and 28th. Once in a while they have roasted lamb legs they call "raan". Buttery soft and yummalicious. -

Indian Oasis - on Horace Harding Expwy at 184th in queens is pretty authentic, just what you would expect in pretty much any chinese place in india, aside from the really top notch ones. dirt cheap, too. you just have to go to queens.....

Thanks for the rec - never tried Haandi, so I'll have to give it a shot. The best Indian restaurant on the planet is Bukhara in the Maurya Sherton in Delhi - YUM... Panzer

yeah, I might agree with you there. did you ever eat at kybber in Mubai? very similar to bukhara, but a richer menu and about half the price. it is where a lot of the business deals in the fort area of mubai are discussed. the dal isn't as good as that at bukhara, or the breads. but they have a m*****f****r of a kheema mutter. I've heard about haandi, need to give it a try.

Nope - never tried Khyber in Bombay (is it in the Taj?) - I'll keep that on my list if I ever make it back to India anytime soon. Did you ever happen to go to one of the little dabas (sp?) on the Delhi-Jaipur road? I once had Brain Curry there (yes, it is what it sounds like) - absolutely delicious.. Panzer

You can get brain curry sometimes here too. Look for "bheja" or "maghz". Moi bueno.. Or ask.

kyber is right by the art museum and the municipal library, an easy walk from the taj, but a free standing resteraunt. been around for ever. the golden dragon in the taj is great, too. yeah, I've eaten at a few dhabas, I used to have to drive (or be driven) to jaipur and chandigar each once a month or so. never had brain, as far as I know. one of the guys on my old team, a jain, used to say that the dhabas were like seedy strip clubs - that's where all the young men would have their first taste of meat, if their families were veg.

I think the latter of those options is the better choice when in India. The traffic is quite startling at first but you quickly come to a peace about it. We had very good drivers. I wouldn't have lasted five seconds before I had a pileup with half a dozen autorickshaws.

The best traveling I did in India was on foot, on back roads, where all the clocks are broken.

I was once in an autorickshaw in bangalore, after leaving some pubs, and the guy I was with asks the driver if he could drive (an autorickshaw is a tuktuk, a 3 wheeled small motered taxi). the driver looked shocked and said "sir, I am a trained and licensed driver, you couldn't possilby drive without putting us in danger and getting us in trouble with the law.." so my friend pulls out a grand total of 50 rupees, about a dollar, and the driver decides that that makes it ok. so we took turns driving the streets of bangalor. I wouldn't really drive in india, though. too dangerous, and if you have an accident, as a forigner, you will get blamed. I had a driver everywhere when I was there.

yes, well, I am sure that was nice. I was actualy pretty busy most of the time I was there, and had to get from place to place. so walking. while nice in principal, would probrably not have been the way to go.

Really - do you know of any specific places in NYC that offer brain curry? - Haandi? I actually had an International Drivers License but never had the balls to drive in Delhi. Panzer
