Any good food city worth its salt has sushi, pizza or a good taqueria, but how many of them have world-class Nepalese? Chicago certainly didn’t, until the launch of Chiya Chai from Nepalese tea importers Swadesh and Saujanya Shrestha and their wives, Rajee Aryal and Nadine Schaefer. The chai tea — far from the syrup-based stuff found at coffee chains — is made from freshly ground spices and top-class tea leaves. Foodwise, Chiya’s chile potatoes feature a yin yang of tangy vinegar and sweet honey, plus a little pepper heat. The chicken balti pie is flaky and filled with coriander- and cumin-perfumed slices of silky chicken.
