Taka, The Spice Master!
At Shalimar we meet amazing people everyday! Recently, we have met Taka!
Taka came into the restaurant to eat with a group of friends, hoping to eat some spicy Indian food! The spice scale at Shalimar is either mild, medium hot, or x-hot, which usually suffice most customer tastes but not Taka’s! Chef Wasif approached the table he took Taka’s order, Chicken Curry X-Hot, but Taka looked unconvinced that X-hot would be hot enough!
Chef Wasif and Taka started negotiating the spice level Taka’s entree! Wasif’s concern was that Taka might not be able to survive the intense spice, and Taka’s was convinced that he could handle anything!
After some time negotiating, Taka ordered his Chicken Curry XXXXXX-HOT!! That’s five times hotter than the usual x-hot!! After the sweat and tears, by the end of his meal Taka triumphed and finished his entire plate of XXXXXX-HOT Chicken Curry!
Way to go Taka!!
