Maimana Naan & Kabab Restaurant in Ajax - A New Gem

I came across Maimana Naan & Kabab Restaurant in Ajax quite accidentally, as I was returning from a haircut in the same mall in Ajax. It was a new joint, and such new restaurants in Ajax need to be explored.
Since then, I have been there twice. I have had their Chicken Tandoori Kabab and Mixed Grill Kabab.
It is kind of a fast-food place, with a simple, but rich set of meals. The interior is also simple but clean and decent.

Bacalao-Style Fish Stew

I accidentally turned into PBS's New Scandinavian Cooking where Andreas Viestad was making Bacalao Stew.
I was enamoured by the concept, and amazed that this stew, with its chilli component, could fit in as a Norwegian dish.

I did some research and found out more about the stew, and decided to make my own.
