Cafe Lazeez

A different kind of fusion cuisine: This tiny storefront offers Pakistani dishes as well as American fast - or fast-casual, if you prefer - food. The Pakistani dishes include richly seasoned chicken biryani, beef kabobs and chicken in an aggressively spicy karahi sauce. The American side of the menu offers burgers and pizza with all the usual toppings. The can't-miss dish is the "broasted" chicken. This is chicken deep-fried in a pressure cooker, essentially, and the results are sensational. The breading is thin, crisp and not overly greasy, while the meat is wonderfully flavorful and spicy.
