Shyan’s, Metairie, LA Report #311

A very dear friend of mine told me about this place.  She said she came here with her husband to pick up some food, and saw a worker at the restaurant carrying a dead lamb in for butchering.  She was traumatized.

Well, to me a place that butchers their own animals means fresher meat!  But no telling.  Maybe that guy was bringing in a carcass he found on the side of the road of some animal that had been hit by a truck.  Either way, I decided to try this joint out.

We decided on Hummus, a Gyro Platter, Bhooni Kalaji, and to go, the Paneer Tikka Masala.


And the FOOD!


We ordered a side of the Naan too, but two pieces came with the Hummus so we cancelled it.  I’ve got to brag about the Naan more than the Hummus!  Best I’ve ever had.  Hot out the oven with a crisp, buttery outside and nice soft inside.  The Hummus was great too.

My dining partner said her Gyro plate was fantastic.

I had the Bhooni Kajali, which was a goat liver dish.  Our waitress asked if I wanted it mild, medium or spicy.  I went with spicy, and it was!  Not overly spicy though.  The sauce it was served in was lick the bowl delicious.  The Basmati rice with both of our platters was cooked perfectly.

My daughter, who’s a vegetarian, and a little scary sissy baby who’s too scared of catching COVID-19 to come dine with us, asked us to bring the Paneer Tikka Masala home to her.  She said it was the best Tikka Masala she ever had!

Fantastic place.  And the people are very friendly.  I highly recommend it!
