win a prize!

Mark and I recently went out for Indian food with our friends Reid and Kate. As we looked at the menu, Reid was telling us about a mysterious dish called Chicken 65. When he attempted to order it -- off-menu, of course -- our waiter looked at him for a second, eyes narrowed, and deadpanned, "I have not heard of this dish." His look, however, said he totally knew about it. Since then, Mark -- a vegetarian, mind you -- has been obsessed with the idea of Chicken 65. Read more about it on his blog.

So, I have a challenge for you, dear readers: Successfully order Chicken 65 in an Indian restaurant (and document it to share here), and I will send you a prize. A real, tangible prize through the mail. (Except you, Reid, since you apparently already know where to get Chicken 65.)

So by some weird coincidence I found myself at an Indian place tonight (I just recently discovered this restaurant and Indian food in general, and already it's one of my favorite places to eat in Atlanta). I had read this post, what, 5 hours before? That's karma.

Lo and behold, Chicken 65 was on the menu. I know that's kind of cheating being that it's right there, but that's my story.

And of course now I had to order it, and it was delicious...

So it does exist! Why all the secrecy then? And if it's so good, why don't most Indian restaurants serve it?

Was the place you ate in Atlanta Zyka in Decatur? That's where I started eating C65.

I live in Chennai, India, and first had Chicken 65 at the free buffet in the airport business-class lounge. It was all right. The funniest part was quizzing my native Indian colleagues, who could come up with exactly zero theories about the significance of the number "65".
