Chai Shai
651 E. 59th St.
Kansas City, MO 64110

Nestled on a quiet corner in the residential neighborhood of Brookside, Chai Shai serves amazing Pakistani food (that many locals unfortunately often mistake for Indian). The regular menu is on the small side but still offers a plentiful selection of meat and vegetarian options, and the weekend specials are always a treat. The mixed-service model—sit down, get up to order at the counter, sit back down and they'll bring you your food—can be irritating, but all will be forgiven when you try the samosas, which may be the best you'll find anywhere on this continent.
