In an area known for Chinese eats, this mom-and-pop spot stands tall and is best known for its goat biryani. Composed with morsels of succulent goat meat that is mingled with ground spices and fluffy rice, this eponymous dish is a signature for good reason. Inside, the room is small and minimally adorned with a buffet station full of freshly made curries, as well as a TV playing Bollywood hits. They do a thriving takeout business; and classics like samosas, palak paneer and aloo gobi are also popular. But, that is not why you're here-also delve into such regional specialties as Kerala pepper chicken cooked in a savory sauce of black peppercorns and minced chives. Sop this up with a soft naan, slicked with ghee and dotted with flecks of jalapeño.
