The UK has more curry greasy spoons than NYC has sushi joints. It’s no wonder, there are a lot of south asians here. More often than not, patrons stumble into these places under the influence of something and craving salty grease. Janam is a perfect example of just such a late night fix in Manchester.
The chicken kebab was minced chicken but it barely resembled food. The large naan wrapping looked great but was stale like a flat tire. Stuffed with some pieces of mystery chicken and loads of salad (aka cole slaw), the only memorable thing about the meal was the chili sauce. Yowza, it was H-O-T. I guess Manchester folks like their hot sauce atomic.
I barely finished my sandwich with my mouth and stomach on fire. Dave gave up two-thirds done. We should have suffered Ghandi’s revenge but were mercifully spared his wrath for yet another day.
