Like her many-limbed Indian goddess namesake, North Carlton’s Lakshmi has her hands busy stirring many pots, be they Malaysian Nonya chicken, Thai papaya salads or Sri Lankan curries. Swoon over South Indian lamb so tender you can cut it with a teaspoon. As part of a thali platter with dhal, raita, pickle, chutney, salad, poppadoms and rice, it’s enough for two and only $18.90. BYO and the serene minimalist decor make this is an ace cheap date place.
