Usmania is the lone South Florida location of the popular Pakistani franchise with outposts in Karachi, Pakistan, and Chicago. It's run by Aftab Katia and his wife, Fouzia, two natives of Karachi with a background in catering. The place is a real family affair: Their children work in the restaurant, and on weekends, it fills with members of a tight-knit community of immigrants. The restaurant makes a host of common Indian and Pakistani dishes like butter chicken, tandoori meats, and korma. But it also serves menu items that you won't find in many local restaurants - some more adventurous than others. There are Indo-Chinese dishes, vegetarian specialties, and biryani. More intriguing options like nihari (Pakistani beef stew), haleem (a thick meat porridge), and brain masala are tempting and rewarding fare.
