The Masala in the Turkish Kebab - A Restaurant Review

A Restaurant Review Hong Kong

sunny 28 °C

Explored two mouth watering eateries near my hotel Holiday Inn . Both are on Mercer Street in Shung Wah . One is a Turkish food joint with a chef named Jahid from India . It is a a small shop , no a/c and only five or six chair’s for people to sit on and eat . The Menu was mostly Non- Veg Kebab’s , falafel , curries , chip’s and Doner Kebab. Most item’s where between 55 Hk TO 65 HK . I asked for a beef diner kebab and a lamb curry with french fries . This i thought would be an adequate meal , as it is it was my first of the day .The Lamb Curry was juicy and more like a Korma with tomato gravy and hot red chiles .The meat was soft and boneless , it lost melted in my mouth .I dipped the fries in the gravy and munched them as starters . This I washed down with a can of Fanta . Then came the beef Doner kebab .This reminded me of my day’s in Manchester and the kebab’s i use to enjoy during my college day’s . The meat was strung up in heated oven’s , only to be shredded later . The shop was small and Bollywood music was blaring from one of the tapes . Small but a tasty Kebab Joint not to forget good vale for money . So do visit this joint when you are next in Hong Kong .

Just in front of the Kebab Joint is Masala The Indian Restaurant .This serves modern Indian cuisine but only Halal Meat . You can have your dish little , medium or very spicy .The Rogan Josh , Fish Madras and Chicken Vindaloo are a must try .The gravies are rich and the quantity of oil is also to a reasonable level .The Nan’s and kulcha’s are a delight and go ver well with the gravies . Potato Chat , Samosa , Bhajia and Raita make a great appetizer . Once you have got your taste bud’s and gastric juices going try the Mango Lassi . This cool drink will blow you away and refresh you for the whole day . The restaurant is of an adequate size with room for almost 30 guests at a time . Their is a small bar too selling beer , whiskey and burbon. Run by an Indian Muslim family .I seriously recommend this eatery for those who wish to enjoy authentic Indian food in Hong Kong . This is as close as we get to home .The flavors and spices have all been hand picked and remix one of the Indian Mughal Period I t is more expensive then the Turkish Joint but the variety of food and the nice seating arrangement make up for that.
