Pak Putra Tandoori & Naan @ Jalan Laksamana, Melaka
I’ve heard so much about Pak Putra Tandoori & Naan. Many say that the best naan and tandoori in Melaka (or Malaysia?) can be found here & I finally paid them a visit during my previous Melaka trip.
We reached here circa 8pm+ after our dinner and the place was packed to the gills, both indoor and al-fresco. We tried to get a table at the long stretch of tables placed by roadside because the indoor seat was quite warm and stuffy. Unfortunately we only manage to secure a table in the restaurant.
Our naan reached pipping hot after more than 30 minutes of waiting (if my memory serves me right :P) Served with a small plate of diluted dhal, the naan was fluffy with pleasant smoky taste from the charred edges.
A sizable piece of chicken dressed in red, it was amazingly tender and moist, definitely one of the best I’ve tried! The only gripe was the marinade not really well infused into the meat rendering the flavor was bordered on bland. Dunk the chicken into the mint sauce accompanied for a more satisfying flavors.
Even the paying counter was in long queue >///<
Verdict: Definitely worth a visit if you are fan of naan and tandoori. I wish I can get such a great version at Klang Valley, any recommendation?
