Bismillah Restaurant

This isn't your average chaat house. While Bismillah Cafe does offer a standard array of chaat snacks like excellent dahi puri, samosas and lassis, owner Inam Moghul takes his menu to a different level by offering Paki-American fusion dishes like chicken wings coated with his signature "ten spice" blend, halal sliders with hand-formed patties and "animal-style fries" better than you'd find at an In-N-Out Burger. Among the other fusion items are burgers and pizzas, although you'll need to call ahead for the latter; it takes Moghul at least 40 minutes to bake the pies from scratch.
