Tangra Asian Fusion -- what to order?

Aleady have recs for the lollypop chicken and manchurian goat. Also, can someone describe the lollypop chicken? Thanks in advance.

  1. Lollypop chicken is made from the "drumette" part of the chicken wing. The meat is scraped from the bottom of the bone upward, so it's all smushed up around the top, lollypop-like. (If a lollypop was made of meat instead of candy, and had a bone in place of a paper stick.) Hmm, then what? It's been while since I ordered them. Battered and fried, served with a spicy sauce? I think so. Mmmm. (I know, this sounds a lot like Buffalo wings. But the flavors are not Buff wing flavors. And no blue cheese dressing, carrots or celery in sight.) Another favorite appy of ours is shrimp pakora. In the main course department, I am a big fan of chili chicken (dry).


    1. Assuming you're speaking about Tangra Masala, you can order anything you want - it will all taste the same because the saucing and spices are the same.

      OK, that's a bit of an exaggeration but it's largely true. I went with a group last spring and out of 7 or 8 dishes only 1 or 2 stood out.
