Most Intriguing Asian Fusion (part 2) 

Masala Grill

Masala Grill is located right next to the Naz 8, Fremont's Bollywood multiplex, but don't go there before your movie. Or after your movie, either. On weekends, pre- and postmovie lines for Masala Grill's food can stretch out the door late into the night. Who knew so many NRIs (non-resident Indians) and desi would be nostalgic for Chinese food cooked the Indian way? By and large, Masala Grill's Indian-Chinese food is of the same caliber as egg-drop soup and sesame beef from your local takeout joint, but the Punjabi side of its menu contains some top-notch cheap eats. The best way to enjoy Masala Grill is to order hakka noodles with your tangri kabob, or malai kafta curry together with chile chicken. Some of its best dishes -- "drums of heaven," or chicken drumsticks tossed with ginger and chiles; and honey-chile gobi, deep-fried cauliflower bathed in a sweet, masala-enhanced sauce -- mix the two cuisines in ways you could never have imagined.
