Kebabs and Fajitas
Had appetizers at Boat Quay and dinner at Chijmes last night... here's the verdict.
I have to say, Dharma's Kebabs at Boat Quay has very good bread. They also have decent chicken tikka kebabs, though a bit bland and in need of more spices - I guess the dishes were westernized to suit the tourist crowd. Appetizer platters serving 4 or 5 people cost about $25, and the chicken tikka kebab plate was $14. Not bad.
At Chijmes, we decided to bypass Esmirada and try a new dinner spot. After walking all over Chijmes I settled on Maracas. In hindsight, maybe we should have stuck to our usual place (where the chicken kebab is yummy!). John says the beef fajitas were good. I thought they were a bit dry.
Nachos were ok. The serving was huge, probably enough of an appetizer for 4 or 5 people.
Maracas was a good place for dinner conversation. The tables could seat 4 to 6 people but most tables were occupied by tourist couples relaxing after a long day - so, low decibel level.
