We usually have Jollibee for lunch. This week, to change things up a bit, we went to Kashmir. It’s been a year since we visited India and fell in love with Indian cuisine so it’s about time to reconnect.
We went at an odd hour so there was barely anyone there.
I’ll admit that I haven’t had enough Indian cuisine to be able to describe the flavors in detail. I’m not even familiar with half of the spices they use. Dear readers, forgive my unusually abbreviated food review.
Chicken Tikka Masala – One of my favorites. This is a “safe” dish to order when you don’t know what to order at any Indian restaurant. I happen to really like this dish and it suits my Garlic Naan quite well. It’s not traditionally spicy (you can order it to be so) which is good for people like me who don’t like spicy food but want curry or sauce to dip. The boneless chicken cubes were very tender and the sauce was yummy. Perfect for my naan.
Jheenga Curry (Shrimp Curry) – I didn’t get to try this because I had my own food but my mother swears by it. She said it was “soooo good.” The shrimp was overcooked though.
Gulab Jamun – my FAVORITE Indian dessert – fried milk balls served warm in sweet syrup. It’s extremely rich and dangerously sweet so it’s not for everyone. Also an acquired taste. I rarely get a chance to have it so whenever it’s on a menu, I’ll order it. Make it a point to go to the gym afterwards to work off your sugar high not to mention the calories.
Portion – Doesn’t look large but would feed more than you think. Mom and I hard difficulty finishing all that food even if it didn’t seem like a lot.
Price – More on the expensive side, we paid about Php700 per person.
