Pakistani snack shop offering remarkable (and cheap) dishes like hunter beef.

Restaurant Details

Hunter beef is the Pakistani version of corned beef, a brisket cured in a masala that—depending on the recipe—may include salt, saltpeter, sodium nitrite, red chile, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, garlic, cumin, mace, coriander, and other south Asian spices. It usually takes on the pinkish hue of the familiar Jewish or Irish-American versions, but with a complex subcontinental spice profile. It's a rare treat in the U.S., and while you can find it at a handful of places on Devon, this Pakistani snack shop offers a remarkable version: shreds of chewy, tender brisket griddled and bedded on a soft toasted bun—perhaps an Iraqi samoon—sprinkled with onions and jalapeños, and drizzled with soothing mayo for a symphony of flavor, temperature, and texture. Here you'll also find halal Indo-Pak fast food, sweets, snacks, and familiar main dishes—samosas, chicken charga, haleem, halwa, korma, biryani, kebabs, bhel puri, pani puri—all dirt cheap, and doraji ka mashoor gola ganda, a tooth-splittingly sweet regional variant of the shaved ice confection gola ganda.
