That beauty is only skin deep in the old adage that champions the quality of inner character is a testament that can apply to food as well. It's been said time and time again that we eat with our eyes. The popularity of "food porn" and food content-based Instagram accounts help sustain that banner statement. However, when a dish is altogether aesthetically and gastronomically pleasing, then it warrants deserved attention.
The chicken tikka poutine at Los Angeles' Badmaash is exactly a dish worthy of such distinction. Brothers Nakul and Arjun Mahendro are the creators of it, a perfect representation of the unique slant they give Indian food at their Downtown Los Angeles hot spot.
Now back to that aesthetically pleasing aspect, though. Clicking on the video above should be enough to hit home the beauty in a gooey cheese curd pull or the grace in the gravy's perfect drape over the crispy fries.
Ah, the art of food. Our palates are essentially all blank canvases waiting for the next chicken tikka poutine to color its existence.
