Introducing the new Best Fried Chicken in Houston. And it’s at, of all places, Himalaya. It’s not on the menu…yet. I saw it on an Instagram photo a few weeks ago and when the group suggested a lunch outing I remembered, and ordered. An order is 8 pieces, a whole chicken. A wing was on the lunch plate he serves each day.
Owner Kaiser came by to see how we liked it and to make sure we ate it all. He’s very proud of it. The marinade takes 3 hours…just to make. Then the chicken marinates for a long time. This chicken is deeply spiced and very tasty. The crust is also spiced and nicely crunchy. The vegetarian at the table could not resist a taste. The whole crown thinks it beats BBQ Inn.
We also ordered all our favorites and carried out a lot of leftovers. Several people go for the steak tikka which is a very tender flavorful steak served in four portions. I myself love the chicken or paneer Hara Masala, a delicious and very spicy green pepper sauce - not bell peppers, small very hot peppers. The garlic naan is also delicious, though I like London Sizzler’s Bullet Naan (garlic and peppers) better. I can’t say that though because these people won’t hear of any better Indian food than Himalaya. And it is amazing. We have better Indian food right here in Houston that any other place I’ve eaten it, though I haven’t been to India!
If you find yourself hungry and near Hillcroft @ SW Frwy, give it a try.
