Dora Kebab
$$$, Indian, Chelsea
"Dora Kebab with a saffron aioli, paired with the “Re-engagement” cocktail, only at @aroqanyc . Did you know? The #DoraKebab (lamb kebab) is the namesake to the string that the kebab is tied with on the skewer, and when pulled, it opens up the kebab and drops it on your plate. Very few restaurants offer this in NYC, #aroqa being one of them . . . . _________________________________⠀ #eatingnewyork #modernindian #indianfoodNYC #foodporn #nyceats #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast #forkyeah #newforkcity #dailyfood #feedfeed #nycfoodie #eeeeeats #hautecuisines #eatingfortheinsta #yahoofood #nycrestaurant #nycbars #michelinguide #f52grams #tastespotting #goodeats #tastingtable #kebab #lambkebab #tandoori #chefsofinstagram"
