I was hungover, but I had it set in my mind that I was going to try Lamb’s Brain Masala that I saw on Menupages at this Pakistani Restaurant. I couldn’t tell if my nausea was from drinking too much or the idea of eating lamb’s brain. When I got there, they had steamed trays of prepared food. The old man in front of me wanted curry. “I want curry.” I don’t think he knew what curry was because almost everything in front of his face was curry. I thought maybe he had read about curry from an old Life Magazine and wanted try this new exotic cuisine.
Fortunately or unfortunately there was no lamb’s brain today. I did get the stuff that looked like it –ground chicken with bitter melon & lamb palak/spinach. It was a gigantic plate of food for $9 with a side salad. The food wasn’t too spicy or flavorful, but maybe that was better for my stomach …and my brain.

…I don’t think the menu online is valid. I think you just order what they already made. And the Lamb’s Brain Masala (special) was not made on this Friday.
