      The frankie, the Bombay street snack that Bombay Café brought to California and perfected, is great—sort of a thick flour tortilla with an egg sizzled onto it, wrapped around a filling of sweet, tamarind-laced lamb, stewed chicken or fried cauliflower. A frankie and a bottle of beer: You couldn't ask for a better lunch.
