Green Chile Chicken Kebabs

The fiery hot chicken kebabs at Chatkhara Grill are made with some kind of green chile, I'm not sure which one. Jalapeño? Serrano? Maybe Tabasco? But whatever kind of pepper the chef is using, this place has the spiciest chicken kebabs I've ever eaten.

The kebabs are also a ridiculous bargain at $1.75 each. The fresh-baked hot bread is 89¢ extra, and the mint and tamarind chutneys are free. So two spicy kebabs and hot bread come to a little over $4.

Add a delicious canned beverage, and you've got a sub-$5 lunch. If you want to get elaborate, they have kebab plates with rice and vegetables too.

Chatkhara Grill is located inside the World Food Warehouse at Beechnut and Highway 6.
