As "lollypops," inside steamed momos, or in stir-fries, chicken soars at this halal home of Chinese wok cooking with Indian flavors. Like most of the main courses, chilli chicken can be served wet, in gravy. Or it can be served dry (shown, $10.95), with minimal saucing that's spicy, garlicky, and — thanks to long cooking over a low fire — even a tad sweet. See more photos from this lunch on the EIT page on Facebook.
