    Chai & Chai is a long way from Chez Panisse...

    Chez Panisse created its own butterfly effect, changing the way Americans cook, eat and think about food.

    Guess where I'm eating chicken tikka masala?

    Chicken tikka masala is quite possibly the most ubiquitous Indian dish in America, and while every restaurant has its own version, I'm partial to this particular one, which is served in a copper vessel, punctuated with assertive spices and plentiful with tender bites of chicken.

    Guess where I'm eating deep-fried naan?

    There were two interesting components to my meal at this Indian restaurant: a server who recommended a Tibetan dish that, he said, was laced with chiles "that were nothing like Texas-style chili" (WTF?) and the deep-fried naan, which would probably be a huge hit in Texas.
