Usmania is a Pakistani restaurant in Westminster. The menu is largely Pakistani, with a couple of Indian dishes thrown in to entice non-Pakistanis. But stay with the Pakistani. Best of all is the goat karahi, a swamp of raw ginger and jalapeño slivers and whole onions cooked down into an oily stew that stains lips and fries tongues--electricity in a steaming platter. Indulge in the paya, beef feet even spicier than the karahi. Dive into the nahari, which is even spicier than the paya. Cool down with some mango juice, or end everything with the oversweet kheer, which will coat your stomach in much-needed sugars to fend off the spices.
