A2: Food

The Kitchen Chick posts a review of Mahek, an Indian eatery on East Washington: “I first fell in love with Chole Batura at the now-gone Mysore Woodlands, so when I saw it on the menu at Mahek I knew immediately what I wanted. Chole is a spicy Punjabi chickpea dish (aka Chana Masala), and batura is a soft deep-fried bread. Mahek serves theirs with a raita, which is delicious on the chole, and a mixed achar (salty-sour pickled condiment). By the way, the chiles in Mahek’s achar are not as hot as they look, so if you can eat medium-hot spicy food then you can eat the chiles in the achar.” [Source]
