Thanal Indian Tavern
At Logan Square's Thanal Indian Tavern, their gunpowder shrimp tikka is served on a bed of cabbage, carrots, and greens, topped with lime and cilantro, and has an eye-catching orange color (reminiscent of Gritty’s fur). While the presentation is impressive, it’s the shrimp itself that is the standout. They’re cooked in a tandoor which makes them beautifully tender with a smoky flavor, marinated in curry and chili powder, and each bite is earthy, spicy, and sweet.
