Showcasing the tandoor clay oven and handi wok, Hazara serves Indian cuisine that celebrates culinary traditions found across the subcontinent. Not surprisingly, the tandoor items, including the murgh malai, a dish of chicken, cream, onions, and coriander, are menu highlights, as are the handi dishes, including tawa jheenga, a Punjab specialty made of king prawns, ginger, onion, and coriander. The restaurant is located inside a teak home, and the atmosphere evokes India with ornate wood carvings, white gossamer drapes, and tropical plants. Vegetarian options are available, and all of the dishes on Hazara’s menu are MSG-free.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
