Chinese Mirch (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Although few cuisines remain unfused in New York, Indo-Chinese is still an unusual marriage (it has long been popular in India). True to its name (mirch is a type of chili), Chinese Mirch does heat best. A mountain of crunchy deep-fried okra is fiery, with a salty, tangy seasoning (try to eat just 20). Seafood and lamb selections provide the most inspired examples of border crossing: Sliced morsels of Szechuan lamb are twice-cooked for a crisp outer layer; they’re deliciously tender and lightly coated with a garlicky Chinese brown sauce. The date-pancake dessert—four thin triangles filled with a sweet date paste and topped with a dollop of ice cream—makes you want to bless this union.
