Lahore Karahi is one of my favorite places to eat in my neighborhood. It’s five blocks away (straight downhill) and serves up cheap, delicious Indian-Pakistani food in a totally bare, un-atmospheric restaurant in the Tenderloin. I don’t go there for the atmosphere. I go there for the lahori chikkar choley (garbanzo beans), the palak methi aloo (spinach and potatoes), the naan and the sweet teenage waiter who is always friendly and adorable. I consider the straight-uphill, five-block walk home an excuse to eat too much.
