The best thing I ate this week
What would I have to do to get a little tandoor in my kitchen, to supplement the workhorse Caloric? I could cook up skewered meats and puffy disks of hand-patted naan, while warming up the whole house with the oven's 900-degree heat. Or, I suppose, I could just go back to this new Minnetonka eatery for an order of its chicken tikka.
Treating yourself to chicken tikka.
Bukhara Indian Bistro, which replaced the former Istanbul Bistro on Wayzata Boulevard, does a bang-up job with its tandoor kebbabs. Each bite of tender chicken tikka has a lovely sour tang from its yogurt marinade, a bit of Indian spice, and a delicate, smoky char. It should soon become a takeout favorite of all the 394 commuters.
