Our favorite food and wine gal, Melanie Wong, was in town this weekend to judge the Clovis BBQ contest, and no, there were no public tastings at the event.

We did manage to hit this place Saturday evening around 7:30 for a tour of the menu. We planned on having beer with our dinner if it was available (not) and I failed to inquire if one might bring their own alcoholic beverage. Will find out and report back. Cuisine is vegetarian and the mango lassis we had went quite well with the spicy dishes.

Melanie has agreed that if I list the dishes and prices that she, LadyPB, and myself enjoyed, that she would follow up with a narrative. So here goes:

Samosa Chana Masala (2 Samosas & Chick Pea, Curry, Chutney & Garnish) 3.40
(2) Aloo Tikki (spiced potato patties) 0.75 ea
BHEL PURI (puffed rice crisps w/yogurt & potato) 3,49
Malai Kofta (veggie balls in tomato cream sauce) 7.99
Bhindyian (okra stir fry) 7.49
Saag (spinach, mustard greens, broccoli, whipped yogurt) 6.99
Makki Di Roti (corn meal flatbread) 1.79
Punjabi Metha Prantha (leavened whoe wheat bread w/fenugreek) 2.99
(2) Mango lassi 2.99 ea
Mixed sweets (at least 8 pieces) 5.45

Total pre tax/tip was $47, we left stuffed with plenty of left overs. Flavors and spicing was superb, will definitely be returning soon.
