Crown Jewel


Days after the recent attacks in Mumbai, which heightened tensions between India and Pakistan, I found myself in Shahi Kitchen, an Indian-Pakistani-Bengali restaurant in a former Aunt Sarah’s Pancake House on West Broad Street. Only vestiges of its previous incarnation remain, and certainly the intense smells and tastes that permeate the air and assault the senses leave no doubt that you’ve entered another world. The syrup has become chutney, and the griddle a tandoor oven.For more about Shahi Kitchen, pick up the latest issue of Style Weekly, or click here to take the plunge.
