Michelberger Hotel Drove 2000km to Bring You Tandoori Chicken
By Andrew Cottrill . August 16, 2017
Hotel Tandoori opens its doors at Michelberger, and the chicken’d best be worth the drive.
There’s been a wave of interested in the everyone’s favourite dyed-red Punjabi classic recently – from Bahadur in Wilmersdorf opening its doors, to Tandoori Takeovers happening all over the city thanks to Moksa.
Now, Berlin’s hippest hotel, Michelberger Hotel, is wading into the action – and they’ve gone to great lengths to make their Tandoori chicken work. Hotel Tandoori opens this Sunday 20th August, celebrating the arrival of their new Tandoor oven by cooking the dishes that’ve made the Indian clay oven famous – tandoori chicken, naan breads and many more.
But where did this massive, heavy, clay bastard oven come from?
Fuck The Proclaimers… one of Michelberger’s waiters expressed his love for tandoor-cooked cuisine by travelling more than 1000 miles. He drove 2000km to Slovenia to source one from a defunct Indian restaurant there. That’s how enthusiastic Michelberger are to bring their version of Tandoori chicken to Berlin. Well, all we can say is that we hope the food’s worth the carbon footprint. But then, their food always is.
