Right in the heart of K-Town on Vermont lies a good place for a combination of Ethnic food, including Mediterranean, Indian, & Pakistan.
With Authentic Spiced Tandoori, they specialize in Tandoor (clay oven) dishes. Mia Jee Tandori has over 50 dishes to choose from whether you are vegetarian or non-vegetarian. There is also a great juice bar; I enjoyed a watermelon juice, a carrot juice and a sugar cane juice, all super fresh and delightful.
Here’s What I Tried:
From The Mediterranean Menu:
Tabouli, the flavor is very fresh and it is just tomato, onion and parley, no Bulgur wheat, which makes it super light and healthy.
Humus, this humus is smooth as silk and really great, they serve it will nice pita bread.
Chicken Dum Biryani, Classic Mughlai Dish of Curried Chicken in Rice Flavored with Saffron Cooked in Aromatic Spices. Biryani: A delicious combination of different colored Basmati rice, with bold rich flavors, and render chicken with Saffron Cooked in Aromatic Spices.
Chicken Tikka Masala, Boneless Tandoori Chicken Marinated in Spices with Tomato Cream Sauce. Just the perfect flavors of sweet curry with chucks of chicken that melt in your mouth.
Mai Jee Tandoori Platter Combination of mixed tandoori, I liked the beef kabob, nice spices and very tender.
Handcrafted Naan Bread:
Garlic Naan, Fresh garlic and coriander-seasoned bread, this bread is so flagrant and soft, dips well into any of the sauces.
Spinach Paneer, very different, but truly wonderful. The spinach is pureed and the flavors are sweet and spicy, a lovely dish.
Raita, with the cooling yogurt and crunchy cucumbers, this condiment will help you get through all of the heat in most of these dishes.
Dal, this is a bean puree that is spicy and thick, a great accompaniment.
They have a lunch buffet and a Sunday Brunch, both from 12:00-4:00pm.
The interior is very cafeteria like on one side, but on their juice bar side it is very colorful and sexy. Make sure you sit in that area when you come here, it will give you a better outlook on life. This room is also used for many special events.
Talk to the staff when you get there and find out what is good for the day, they will steer your meal in the right direction.
