It’s easy to link Indian and Pakistani food, but it’s not easy to tie a dusty minimart to a restaurant. Blame it on convenience; hell, if you’re selling the ingredients, why not cook with them? In the back of this bustling market are some scattered tables and a wall menu touting authentic Pakistani favorites such as frontier chicken, tongue-searing aaloo palak (creamy spinach and potatoes) and belly-warming curried dal (lentils). Don’t miss the huge selection of glass-encased sweets, where you can grab a sugar rush to go.
