Like me, you probably don't think of Layton as an exotic eating destination. But that notion might change, once you visit the new Kasbah Grill in Layton on North Hill Field Road. Kasbah Grill is an attractive, spacious restaurant which features Indian and Mediterranean dishes, as well as some tried-and-true American fare. For example, you can actually get a Philly steak sandwich and a pastrami burger at Kasbah Grill.
But it's the exotic eats that draws me to the Kasbah, like their delicious chicken tikka masala and chicken curry, which I ordered spicy and boy was it spicy! They also serve up an authentic version of lamb vindaloo from Goa, tandoori dishes, biryani rice plates, and traditional Indian breads called naan.
Over on the Mediterranean side of the Kasbah Grill menu there's hummus, falafel, tabouleh salad and couscous, plus kebab plates like chicken and kofta kebabs, served on skewers hot off the grill. There are also a couple of elegant Moroccan dishes at the Kasbah Grill: Royal chicken, and one of my favorite all-time Moroccan delights called bastila, which is crispy phyllo dough stuffed with chicken, almonds, and other assorted goodies with a wonderfully sweet sauce.
And for kids who might not be into exotic Mediterranean and Indian fare, there's also spaghetti with meat sauce, cheeseburgers, and chicken nuggets. Well if you're looking for something a little exotic during your holiday shopping duties, check out the Kasbah Grill in Layton.
