When it comes to Pakistani food I am not adventurous at all. I order ‘garlic chicken’ every time because ‘garlic’ is the only word I often understand from the menus. This could be why I am not crazy about Pakistani or Indian food, like I am with Thai food (yellow curry = mild, green = medium spicy, red = order at own risk). @ Grønland I have eaten Indian at Curries (average/good), Lal Qila (nothing exciting), Punjab Tandoori (more often disappointing than anything else), and Tandoori Curry Corner (never again).
Update! barBQtonait has CLOSED.
Review below of previous visit from July 2012:
Yesterday I tried the Pakistani restaurant barBQtonait (Grønland, Oslo) and they had chicken under Chef”s Special, daring me be crazy. The waitress recommended me to order the Chicken Makhani. She used the word yogurt and I was all in.
…marinated overnight in a yogurt and spice mixture usually including garam masala, ginger, garlic paste, lemon or lime, pepper, coriander, cumin, turmeric and chili.
The diner was average; a bit low-key, but the dish was good, and something I would come back for (but I could be biased about the fact that I found a new dish!).
Price tag: 150 NOK or less.
…A good experience, and now added to the list of nearby restaurants I will visit again.
My rating: ♥♥♥
My new resolution is to try more Indian food. Next time I am going to an Indian restaurant, I will look up this excellent ‘Glossary of Indian terms‘ on my phone.
