It had been awhile since I visited Shafali Indian Foods Bazaar in the Byward Market, and now I am wondering why I stayed away so long.
I love the chicken tikka wrap, perfectly cooked chicken on a bed of lettuce with spicy mayo wrapped in delicious, blistery, naan. It’s like comfort food, only the kind my grandmother didn’t make. The naan is baked fresh and continuously throughout the day and I was lucky enough to arrive when a new batch came out of the oven. The chicken is perfectly spiced and grilled, with a side of fragrant rice, this is the best lunch in town.
The family that owns it is friendly, and always willing to accomodate (their butter chicken is great too!).
