Tandoori Chicken for the Ages

We love it when extraordinary food finds pop up in unlikely places. You might fairly assume that the best one would have to seek out this off-the-charts delicious Afghan-style tandoori chicken platter in Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver.

Tandoori Chicken with Rice to Die For!

But this beauty can be found (and trust us, you really, really want to find this) in Saskatoon SK at a small, unassuming restaurant called Afghan Donair and Kebab (located in an unassuming shop on 22nd Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues downtown). Seriously folks, this is unquestionably the best tandoori chicken we’ve ever had. Prepared in a traditional Afghan tandoor, the chicken is marinated in a tantalizing blend of spices then cooked to crispy, tender and juicy perfection - every, single time! Served with an enormous bed of perfectly cooked, lightly scented Afghan long grain rice sweetened with plump raisins and this platter is a ginormous meal for one big eater, and two meals for people with less prodigious appetites. Pro tip: order a pot of strong, black Afghan tea with your platter and settle in for one of the best meals you’ll find in Saskatoon.

About Culinary Slut

We are not professional chefs; nor are we professional food reviewers or travel writers. We are, however, food and travel obsessed. Food is more than fuel, and we experience it (whether at home or abroad) through a lens polished by our travel experiences. Food is tradition, history, family, celebration. It brings us together, it reflects the world we live in and where we came from. In many ways, food defines communities and our cultures. It can be creative, joyful and comforting. Food is life.   

We come from humble backgrounds and that allows us to appreciate humble noshing; at the same time
, we have achieved some small measure of success that allows us to travel and gives us access to culinary artistry. We both come from cultures where food is central to community and family and is symbolic of friendship.

A quick word about reviews: you will not find negative reviews on Culinary Slut. While we may poke fun at times, it is as much at ourselves for risking food and travel experiences that are a bit "off the wall" (or the beaten path).  That sometimes leads us to experiences that are a bit less-than-perfect (and that's putting it mildly). But, if we don't like something, we just don't post about it. Instead, we’re here to have fun and share our experiences with you in the hopes that you'll find them as fun and wondrous as we do.
